The usual gang of suspects.  Read only to feel the smug satisfaction of how deep your music collection is.

Fair.  Not exactly my favs per band...*shrug*.

Number 12 and 10 are still regular listening for surewewang.

No Avail - Dixie? =(
 
2013-07-12 06:40:54 PM  
No "Living in Darkness" by Agent Orange? :-(
 
2013-07-12 06:48:03 PM  
Big deal. Learn 5 chords, sing off key about the establishment and you're a punk band. You're not a real punk band until your bumper sticker is on the back of my ex-girlfriend's Honda. And you can't have heard of them.
 
2013-07-12 06:52:08 PM  
List is missing NOFX:

Or Ribbed.
 
2013-07-12 06:59:49 PM  
Also missing Pennywise, Authority Zero, Bouncing Souls, and a bunch of other 90's punk bands. Author has an 80's punk bias.
 
2013-07-12 07:04:31 PM  
This list is missing Blink 182
 
2013-07-12 07:11:11 PM  
List is missing Leftover Crack
 
2013-07-12 07:11:41 PM  
List is also missing Social Distortion, who should be there instead of Green Day
 
2013-07-12 07:13:16 PM  
Punk ended in 1981.
 
2013-07-12 07:16:25 PM  
Ive never heard of any of these bands, and no Avril Kroger? List is bullshiat...
 
2013-07-12 07:18:35 PM  
Not a terrible list, though it could use some Replacements and Jawbreaker.
 
2013-07-12 07:18:44 PM  
The Ramones status as the most overrated band of all time was granite solid until Nirvana.
 
2013-07-12 07:18:56 PM  

RoyFokker'sGhost: Social Distortion


Yes.

Mangoose: This list is missing Blink 182


If you want to go that route you could throw in New Found Glory and Simple Plan. Although I kinda like Simple Plan.

Also, whar The Vandals, Guttermouth, and Lagwagon? WHARR?
 
2013-07-12 07:22:21 PM  
Minutemen - double nickels
 
2013-07-12 07:22:49 PM  
Reno's own 7 seconds.
 
2013-07-12 07:27:49 PM  
Not a terrible list.  Probably needs Black Flag's first EP, Group Sex by the CJ's, FEAR The Record, and some Dead Boys
 
2013-07-12 07:30:08 PM  
What about The Skids and early work of The Stranglers? Pretty darn good in their own time.

no german bands either... Die Artze should've made the list. Not a big fan, but they were pretty important over there.

(an album about hair!)
 
2013-07-12 07:34:37 PM  
whah whah I didn't see...

Crass: Stations of the Crass
Vandals: peace thru vandalism
Germs: (GI)
Septic Death: now that I have the attention...
 
2013-07-12 07:36:15 PM  
Almost all American bands and no Crass? fark you. The Ramones were mediocre at best, Wayne Kramer never wanted to be called a punk and Green Day is a pop band. I like quite a few of the bands listed but few are top 20 material.
 
2013-07-12 07:38:43 PM  

LandStander: 6. Bad Religion
Suffer (1988)


I absolutely agree with this item and I'm glad it's there

/you are the government
 
2013-07-12 07:40:13 PM  
Any list of best punk w/o the Queers and the Riverdales is worthless
 
2013-07-12 07:41:26 PM  
Only "Suffer"? No "How Could Hell Be Any Worse"? I think that is a better album(only slightly) than "Suffer". I also think "No Control" is at least on par with "Suffer".
 
2013-07-12 07:41:46 PM  
Decent enough list, given the contentious topic, but where are the English anarcho-punks?

List needs:

upload.wikimedia.orgupload.wikimedia.orgupload.wikimedia.org

...and a few others along these lines.

RoyFokker'sGhost: List is also missing Social Distortion, who should be there instead of Green Day


I believe that is why it says 19, instead of 20 bands because Green Day is crap, or Dookie..  I also agree with Social Distortion, IMO the album should be Mommy's Little Monster.  List is good because it is all 80's stuff and predates the other bands that followed in their deep footprints.

If you are going to put NOFX and the Bouncing Souls on it, you might as well just add The Offspring and Pennywise as well.  They basically are all the same band.

I think that Everything Went Black was a great album, but I guess it was considered a compilation.  Milo Goes to College is just awesome.
 
2013-07-12 07:43:34 PM  
Also, no Operation Ivy "Energy"? Much better than "...And Out Come the Wolves".
 
2013-07-12 07:44:58 PM  
Yea, no thanks for leaving out Death, even though lately the band has got a lot of publicity. The movie "A Band Called Death" is pretty good.
 
2013-07-12 07:47:07 PM  

Lionel Mandrake: Decent enough list, given the contentious topic, but where are the English anarcho-punks?


yes! I forgot Rudimentary Peni in my initial post...

and for deeper DK-esque chaos, why no Crucifu**ks or Feederz?
 
2013-07-12 07:47:36 PM  
Liking the love of Bad Religion here. I would love to meet Greg Graffin one day... he manages to be in a band that still does worldwide tours, raise two daughters, teach and write books.

I can only hope I have 1/4 of the energy he does when I reach his age.
 
2013-07-12 07:48:02 PM  
No Queen Haters? List is BS.

Ever heard "This is Not a Crass Song" by Anti-Flag? It sounds exactly like a Crass song, but the lyrics are light hearted.

2013-07-12 07:52:43 PM  
Green Day... Ugh.. Stop it...
 
2013-07-12 07:52:56 PM  
Since  Raw Power is on there then proto-punk is obviously fair game and therefore Bowie's  Pin-Upsshould be listed too.

/THE quintessential proto-punk record after the Stooges discography
//Germs and Crass are glaring omissions
 
2013-07-12 07:53:54 PM  
Oh, and for f*ck's sake where's the Flipper?

There's only two people in here being smug.

Guess which two I mean!  Go ahead, guess!!

This too

Thank You Black Jesus!: The Ramones status as the most overrated band of all time was granite solid until Nirvana.


It's not even a contest anymore.  As long as SiriusXM's 90s alternative & grunge channel stays on a one-Nirvana-song-an-hour minimum, the Ramones might as well not even bother showing up to that contest.

\and I might be underestimating the ratio of songs on that channel

2013-07-12 07:58:51 PM  
yeah not understanding the Green Day hate.

Say what you want about their new stuff, but Dookie was a seminal album.

/seminal in the common usage, not the other one.

I like Green Day.  A lot.  But they don't belong on any "top list" of punk albums.

And "Dookie" is not even close to my favorite album from them.

Have you heard the Foxboro Hottubs? It is basicly Green Day and one other guy doing a different type of music than Green Day. It has more energy and rythem.
