So, this is going to show peoples ages. I was born early 80s so hit my peak around 1994 when PUNK ROCK in the states really blew up, bands like Green Day and The Offspring got regular airplay.
I always was more for the “Underground” bands.
4.A Wilhelm Scream
6.No Fun At All
8.No Use for a Name
9. Strung Out
Frenzal, Lagwagon and Bad Religion could have been on there
Was a massive Rise Against fan but they really lost me over the last few albums.
Surely you would have to list at lest some of the bands that really started punk.
Sex Pistols, Saints, etc
Whilst I appreciate them I never listen to them
I do enjoy some Ramones and Black Flag
In no Particular order my top 10 are
Iggy and the Stooges (even Iggy on his own)
Drop Kick Murphy
(even Iggy on his own)
It’s like Mick Jagger without the Rolling stones.
Or Roger Daltrey without the Who.
Iggy’s solo bands have never had the talent of Ron Asheton or James Williamson. They are 2 of the greatest Guitarists of all time… none of the other 9 bands I mentioned (Including Iggy), would be around if it wasn’t for both Asheton & Williamson.
My most listened to:
Will work on a top 10
Hard genre as so much snobbery, I’ve gone with bands that I like rather than with ‘cred’. In no particular order
My chemical romance
Fall out boy
5 seconds of summer
That dude off Australian idol, sung that wasabi song.
Punk died in 1978.
Young people today have no idea…
In rough chronological order -
New York Dolls
Richard Hell & The Voidoids
The Sex Pistols
(loved the punk ethos at the time, but prefer post-punk really)
And at least keep the list to bands that actually
Do I go with the 10 best?
10 most important?
My 10 favourites?
10 biggest influences on me?
I’m gonna need time.
Gotta work Daft Punk in there somehow.
No particular order:
The Sex Pistols
Ian Drury and the Blockheads
Public Image Ltd
Sorry gotta have The Ramones in there too
The Pogues as well.
Can’t do 20 can we?
Punks a mindset man.
I even have trouble accepting the Ramones as “Punk”.
If that aint Pop, I’ll go hee for Tiggy.
Hard to rank specifically, will just give my most likely ‘top 10 listened to.’
*Might be a stretch.
Y’all get over to the DJ thread then!!!
