Top 5 Punk bands

Sex Pistols are always hailed as the greatest punk band. Personally, I think that's a whole lot down to Sid Vicious's suicide. As a band, they had so littke musical talent that they were left to rely of shock tactics.

Admittedly, that gained them commercial success, but the ability to play their instruments was more or less non-existant.

Yea, they defnitely weren't the most talented musicians around. But I still think they deserve all the recognition they receive because they basically created the genre of punk rock.

I don't think they were the greatest punk band, but I think they were the first.

Except for the fact that they went against "punk" mentality what with being commercial puppets and basically sh*t on the entire DIY scene itself?

The Pistols were a popular band, but that didn't make them commercial puppets. They invented the "punk" mentality as far as I'm concerned. What did they do to sh*t on the DIY scene?

Being signed to a major record label? Yeah, really punk.

I totally agree.  And the sex pistols didn't deserve half the success or regard that they have.

How so?

The Sex Pistols were the cause of the 77 revolution. They laid the foundation for all punk rock. I think they're deserving of every ounce of recognition they've ever gotten.

They sucked, period.

 

I don't give a flying f*ck about what they did with their image, or whatever bullsh*t foundation you think they laid.

 

The sex pistols sucked musically, not to mention they had a prepubecent boy for a screamer singer. And they (as I said, and still stick to) did not deserve sh*t.

 

And sorry to burst your imaginary bubble, but a little band called the Ramones beat the sex pistols in being the first punk rock band. But I don't really give a f*ck who was first.

For f*cks sake, I know for a fact if any of you were given the chance to be signed up to a major record label, you WOULD, no questions asked.

 

For me...

 

1: Sex Pistols

2: Germs

3: Tattooed Mother f*ckers

4: Crass

5: G.B.H

You guys are the only "punks" I've known to discredit the Sex Pistols.

Yeah, a lot of "Punks" hate the band because they switched over to a major record label, or because they went against the "DIY" scene. First off, NO band just gets together for the fun of it, thats complete bullsh*t, all of them are in it for the money.

 

The "DIY" scene had already been whored out by 77' anyways.

You're right, every single band/composer/musician makes music solely for monetary gain, just how every painter, sculptor, author, poet, comic artist, and whathaveyou creates art just for money, and not to spread a message or a express their beliefs. You're completely right.

Yeah dude, music is definitely not considered art, its more of a job, totally not something you do for fun.

Do you have at least a slight idea as to why people dislike signing to major record labels?

 

It's called art for arts sake, dipsh*t.
