Modern power pop gained momentum in the late '60s with the first recordings by the British group Badfinger (though it must be pointed out that at this time, bands and recordings were not yet classified as "power pop").
These late 1970s bands -- many of whom were now specifically referred to as "power pop" -- had as their immediate and most important influence the early 1970s bands like Badfinger and the Raspberries, rather than the British Invasion bands that were the genre's original influence.

Alongside power pop combos, you will hear the roots and offshoots of this style, including rockabilly, surf, girl group, old school soul, garage rock, early psychedelia, punk, new wave, alternative, and the currently unnamed "next wave" of bands who have exploded since 2002.

The Raconteurs have some definite power pop moments ("Hands" is undeniably power pop, for instance), but just as often rely on the strictly garage/blues rock style you expect from Jack White (who only occasionally slips into what I'd consider "power pop," like on "You're Pretty Good Looking'" on De Stijl).
I haven't heard much of the Click Five, but from what I glean from their website, they're absolutely gunning for power pop and seem to be achieving it, at least on some level.
