This is something I heard on the Warped Tour documentary. "With such new styles of music and categories like emo, hardcore, post-hardcore and etc, is there such a thing as punk anymore?" Just think about it, Punk has grown into many different subcategories, how can we categorize what punk is?

Same way we can categorize what metal is, or what rock is, they are all broad genres that encompass many, many sub-genres. There is still a definitive "punk" sound and lots of bands still play that way today.

Exactly!!

Punk and death music are merging to create sh*t, punk and rap are merging etc...

This is real punk:

@Warlord: I love Social Distortion, were my absolutely favourite band last year. Will need to give them a listen again. If you like them you might like some of Rancid and Bad Religion's stuff. Mike Ness (SD's singer) has done a lot of solo stuff too that you might enjoy.

I've been listening to mostly rap, grime, dubstep and metal this year. Was at a ska gig on Saturday however, and it's got me right back into the kind of stuff I was listening to when I was a skinhead. I've even been eyeing my hair clippers with longing eyes. biggrin.gif I don't think sporting a baldy would help me much in job interviews though!

Some stuff I've been listening to today:



I love Johnny Cash, and I've always had a soft-spot for some cowpunk.



I'm not so much of an ACAB persuasion these days, but still a f*cking great song.



First band to get me seriously reading into socialism and anarchism when I was a wee guy.

saw them earlier this year, one of the best live shows you'll ever see. stza stumbled off stage, pissed in a water bottle in the corner mid-song, got back on and picked up where he left off. what a champ.

Stza is a funny guy, he got bollock naked at Rebellion festival in 2009, i'm gutted they had to cancel their show in August over here, I really wanted to see Leftöver Crack without a sprained ankle (Got a bit rough watching Agnostic Front half an hour before hand, glad it was at the end of the festival, haha).

@Warlord: Check out The Bouncing Souls, preferably albums such as Maniacal Laughter & How I Spent My Summer Vacation. They're a band i've wanted to see live for years so I plan on seeing them at this years Rebellion Festival.

I always feel like I'm treading on people's toes when I come into a genre specific topic to talk about an album I consider to be reggae, metal, electronic and so on. However, I'm going to go ahead and mention it because it's as close to the genre as I really get and I've really enjoyed listening to it.

F u cked Up's "David Comes To Life" - I love it.

It's a hell of a meaty album, clocking in at just under 80 minutes, but it's very good. The only gripe I have with it is Pink Eyes (vocalist) seems to try and attempt a few spoken-word style verses in his trademark harsh vocal and it just doesn't work. It gets a little too wordy for his style. Those who have also listened and enjoyed it may know what I mean, but I think he should stick to less dense, conventional lyric structures as he did with The Chemistry Of Common Life. Don't get me wrong, I know this is a concept album and there is a story to tell, but I found it a little distracting at times.

I'm afraid Punk is dead since the Ramones historic time line ended. I most recently bought a Ramones respective DVD, they are just SO iconic, I think one of the best of all time.

Now I saw mention of SOD recently, I'd say they are a PUNK METAL band, of sorts

Just because Punk Music may be dead, doesn't mean that the ideology is dead as well. I've been listening to Rise Against for like 7 years now. Yeah, they're mainstream and "sellouts" according to some. But I think their lyrics have been getting more punk lately. I think their recent songs such as "Make It Stop" may sound a lot more mainstream but they do share the message against homophobia and etc. Their album "Appeal to Reason" did sound less "Punk" but it also was an attack on the wars America goes through.

Just because music is dead, doesn't make Punk itself dead.

I think what people need to understand is that being commercial doesn't make something bad.

It's a shame that artists who are capable of sending a message while still appealing to the commercial market get so much unjustified hate. If you really look at the songs that make it to the top of the charts and such, there are still songs that are spreading a message.

Not that I have anything against party music, I listen to that as well.

Of course. for the Ramones, they were commercial as well as being pioneers. Whereas the Sex Pistols could never be accused of being commercial, but being more notorious in the genre

Man the Ramones are the f*ckin best. I think Leave Home is my favorite with Carbona Not Glue back on it. And Road To Ruin, Ramones, Rocket To Russia are all freakin great. The demo version of Danny Says is super cool. KKK Took My Baby Away. It's either them or the Dead Kennedys. And the Misfits.

Dude, dude, if you don't enjoy the MISFITS, you're just not a punk! haha
Truly, this musta been the first track I recall hearing from them.... Like it, the band is one everyone should have a listen to



I think Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig have a lot in common, and perhaps add Jello Biafra to the list

Some cool stuff all over YouTube, used to be you had to find one good radio station, SERIOUSLY! haha


METALLICA, made famous ^

I got a Jello Biafra interview from his days with DOA, and I'll type that up for you a bit later, verbatim ... Dead Kennedys had broken up two years prior, according to that article from Thrash Metal magazine.

That album he did with DOA is really good. Last Scream Of The Missing Neighbors. I like that thing a whole lot. The guitars sound like Slayer or something it's really freakin cool man. Oh yeah that's progress - doesn't progress make you feel good inside? devil.gif His country album is my favorite though. Jello is funnier than hell he just kicks ass.

Keith Morris singing Gimme Gimme Gimme and No Values is the coolest sh*t ever. It's on the Everything Went Black compo. If you take Nervous Breakdown and the demos with Keith Morris, that's like a whole album right there.

Henry Rollins isn't much of a singer, but I actually liked some of Rollin's Band, and he's an influence, there's no doubt!

The only band I'm excited about (possibly) seeing at Rebellion 2012 is Hagar The Womb, and I've already been in contact with them about booking them a show where I live!

I've got a busy couple of months coming up, show wise. Discharge, Subhumans and Varukers are all playing here over the course of the next two months then in January I'm putting on the legendary Antisect! I'm also organising a local crust/hardcore show the week after then on my birthday I'm putting on Headjam!

Jesus, the Bristol Punk scene is well good, I keep getting invitations for gigs on Facebook haha. Manchester used to be awesome but it seems to have been lacking good gigs lately, Liverpool is pretty good nowadays though!

Don't quite know why I was so excited about Rancid playing Rebellion, lol. Probably because I haven't seen them and used to be obsessed with their first 3 albums when I was younger. No doubt they will play a load of their newer sh*te.

I was going to mention Rancid in the Punk station proposals for GTA V, without fact-checking, aren't they a California band?
There's that other popular Cali Semi-punk band, but all I can think of at the moment, that I wanna hear again is....

Scatterbrain! haha
