    Japan's "Mad Capsule Markets" are not only to best sort-of Punk band, but only one i can stomach. I very much dislike punk, but I like MCM.

    I decided to get one of there albums and it was probably one of the worst 'chance' albums i've bought. I'd definately recommend a try before you buy on MCM.

    There, that's better :p I don't like punk as a genre but have quite a lot of time for The Buzzcocks and the Clash, otherwise they can all fuck off! :D

    You are a factory of sadness.

    The Clash. I sorta like the Buzzcocks but think they're a bit shit at the same time. I'm surprised no one's mentioned Blondie, although it depends on whether they count as 'punk'. I don't think they do, but Debbie Harry was known as the Queen of Punk (bollox), so, um, hmm...

    Depends. Blondie's first couple of albums were pretty punk, if I remember rightly, but then came the third album and the hits.

    Anyway, they're part of the New York scene which was always kind of punk, but kind of something else too.

    I think it's because the American punk scene was more about the music, whereas the Brit punk scene was a movement in itself - more of a culture than it ever was in America. The American music may have been better, but the Brits used punk as a way of 'fighting back at the establishment', causing a stir and having followers that used to scare the bejeepers out of me when I was a sproglet.

    Heh, yeah. I remember how everyone was scared of punks. It's quite funny now, looking back.

    The New York punk scene just didn't take off as a culture in the same way as it did over here. I think it was just more localised, plus perhaps it had musically a lot more competition too.

    Actually I'd agree there too.

    Dammit. Classing punk then is like trying to class "rock" now.

    Which was your favourite punk band? I feel a bit guilty for not choosing the Clash, but I think if I'm honest I'll have to go with the Damned.

    The idea was fave 'classic' bands (lol @ any punk being called 'classic') but feel free to take it in any direction you like. Except Guns & Roses or any metal for that matter. I can't think of anything *less* punk than Guns & Roses... >:p

    The Pistols had some fun tracks but let's be honest, they were the Take That of their time weren't they? The Clash had all the right lyrics and sentiment but I just can't bring myself to like their music. The Ramones obviously but that's a bit too, well, obvious. ;) Nah, the Damned - comedy, energy and great choons. /sings Neat Neat Neat /smashes it up

    The Damned, 999, the Clash, Pistols, Runaways, the Adverts, Angelic Upstairs, The Buzzcocks, the Viberators, UK Subs, Sham 69, Undertones, New York Dolls and some other stuff.

    Basically, proper punk. Though to be honest I preferred what the West coast did with it all, mixing it with the blues.... the Cramps and the Gun Club, for example.

    The Offspring. Ixnay on the Hombre being my favourite album of theirs.

    I dont see why bands like the Offspring/Blink/Green Day are seen as less punk tbh. The Ramones etc are every bit as poppy. Green Day are shite now mind.

    The Offspring for me, have all their albums. Everyone a classic in my mind, apart from the early one.

    "Welcome to intermission"

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    even now after almost 30 years its still my favourite song ever.

    Best band at the moment = Snuff.

    Strokes Phase 9 signed copy.

    Fantastic band, I recently had a roll back into my Ramones CD's I forget how good they were, Ramones were also the fist band my daughter sang along to at the age of 1.5.

    Now that's punk.

    Tell you what, the Infected song off the first Guitar Hero got me into Bad Religion. Got a few of their albums as well. Good stuff.
