Top 5 Punk bands

Recommended Posts

PCJ.

Dude, that post is 9 months old.

 

Admittedly, yes, a great deal of punk bands lack technical ability, but they make that up in the ability to make good music. Sex Pistols had neither. The Sex Pistols were the antithesis of Punk. Their Manager was a fashion designer, Johnny Rotten was picked as the lead singer because he had the right image, god, they even signed to EMI.

 

But to claim that punk is a music genre which lacks musical prowess is far in a way excessive. The Clash were skilled musicians, as are Fugazi, Dead Kennedys, and Bad Brains. Bad Brains even played Jazz Fusion before Hardcore Punk. There is no rule that says punk should lack musical prowess; every part of the message of punk rock can be contained within a band of good musicians.

4. The Stooges

5. U.S. Bombs

 

If The Distillers had been together a little longer, perhaps they'd be on this list...but they broke up after only two albums. icon13.gif

Sex Pistols and Joy Division are up there...just didn't make the cut.

I just listen to Public Image Ltd. and forget that the Sex Pistols even existed.

 

And my list on the first page is pretty much still the same.

Yeah, but Johnny Rotten is one cool motherf*cker. Always has been, always will be. One of the funniest guys in interviews and one of the best political minds in music, bar none. Sex Pistols weren't the greatest, but they deserve credit for their influence definitely. He shows off his stylings much better in Public Image Ltd.

blink 182, sum41 easily the 2 best punk bands ever....... haH

I am disappointed.

I have lost all faith in humanity.

 

How about The exploited anyone ? i dont listen to their music too often, but it sure does kick some ass imo.

 

I dont hate bad brains either, but i cant say i listen to a lot of punk anymore nowadays.

 

it seems quite a few people dont really know what "real" punk is .. i've seen sum41 and blink 182 too many times in this topic @[email protected]

 

if anyone is interested in french punk music, check out les "Bérurier Noir". influential band back in the days, they regrouped in 2003 i think, i had a show here but i missed it confused.gif

But who's to blame?, them?, they didn't had any jobs, or future, so when the oportunity came, they signed with this band that Malcolm wanted to form, i think that nobody to this date was as much punk as johnny rotten, he just rocked out there, maybe they couldn't play, but every single problem they had was their manager and their record company, of course, they could had always quit, so there's blame to them too.

So I'm not sure if I posted in this topic before, I'm too lazy to look. My list has probably changed anyway, so here it is (some of these you might not consider punk music, I do):

 

1. The Clash

2. Against Me!

3. Social D

4. Bad Brains

5. None More Black

 

Those are of the moment, changes a lot although Clash are usually 1.

 

Speaking of Against Me! though, anyone heard their latest album? I've haven't heard it yet, hopefully it has that great sound of theirs, similar to RAR.

The new couple of Against Me! albums are sh*t. Stick with Reinventing, Crime and the other one.

Well being familiar with every band mentioned I can think of a few that missed the list....Not that I couldn't pick a top 10 of the listed it usually depends on my mood. First off, I was kinda surprised not to see more Rancid listed. Dead Kennedy's, The Clash, The Ramones and many of the speed metal punk bands are great on the list. The Meatmen? C.O.C.? Mustard Plug? Fetus? D.O.A.? LARD? ....and I am just getting started, man. I don't think I can pick a top 10 without considering a must listen too list instead.

One of the best albulms yet I wonder if most their listeners realize that empowerment is what a great portion of their songs are really about.....Punk in general does that yet it sometimes gets missed.... sad.gif

How does having a non-punk 1/5th get him half way there?

 

I don't want to rant, but this is the most pathetic punk topic i have ever seen. Only a few decent bands have been mentioned. The rest is Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Dead Kennedys, Rancid, Ramones, etc. If your going to drop names at least do a good job of it. Punk extends beyond the Sex Pistols and has never been Blink 182.

 

I would normally drop some names at this point but i have no band loyalty. ie. I'm a song whore.

Thats subjective. Personally i think that they are overrated. Still good, but not top 5 material.

^^^

1. As i previously said, i am a whore. I don't download more than 5 songs of any particular band, with some exceptions. This leaves me unqualified to accurately rank certain bands. About 100 draws would occur. Considering this is "top 5", that would be rather undesired.

 

2. It is illogical to emphasis sarcasm within a question unless sarcastic assumptions are embedded with the question.
