Nice list, some of my fave punk bands are: Bad religion, pennywise, anti-flag, lagwagon, the exploited, propagandi, and many more.

I'm picky with my punk. Some of it I really like, the rest I really hate. That's all I have to say about that.

Cool ****. I was always into the more modern punk, like NOFX for instance. But the old stuff is great too, especially the Misfits

Early 70's punk? How early you talking? Ramones debuted around 1974. The UK punk scene was in it's earliest stages in '75, but once the Ramones played London in '76 and were seen by people like Johnny Lydon and Joe Strummer it really took of.

Bands that play on my iPod almost daily are the Ramones, Pistols, Misfits and DK. My 5 year old loves the Ramones.

Personally for me it started with the "Motor City Madness" bands like Iggy and the Stooges, the MC5, etc who were playing around 1969. I was 13 or 14 when Iggy's "Raw Power" came out in 1973, and you can't tell me that isn't a punk album, although it wasn't called that at the time.

By the time it became popular and out of the underground, I would say there was a big grey area between Punk and New Wave, but most of the bands I remember from that era are somewhere on a line that runs from one to the other.

Malcom Mclaren (manager and to be honest, creator of the Sex Pistols) had seen the New York Dolls in 1972 ... by that time the CBGB thing was already well underway ... the owner of the bar was too cheap to pay for acts, so you got acts that could be anything from poetry readings to total mayhem.

Eventually the poets are up there singing, and total mayhem is playing backup.

In the meantime, I get my first job in the music business in 1977 at a snotty-nosed 19 years old. I still occasionally get a call to do sound, lighting, or stage if somebody is too busy or gets sick, even though I'm 25 years out of the music business. Last job I did was for Lamb of God. I worked the show when the Dead Kennedy's played here about 86 or so, and a couple of years ago when Pennywise and The Circle Jerks played at a club here.

The Ramones met the Sex Pistols and the Clash (who were both already playing) when they went to the UK in 76. The Ramones ended up at some punk club the night after they played their concert, and they were all there.

The Advert's "Gary Gilmour's Eyes" was the first punk song to break the UK top 20, in 1977. After that, you have the emergence of the LA punk scene, which is different again from the New York and London stuff.

I've managed to see a good number of those bands live, along with who-knows-how-many that were never heard from again. Saw Oingo Boingo and The Circle Jerks the first time I was in LA in '81, saw Richard Hell and the Voidoids in Toronto that same year, again the first time I was in Hogtown. Jayc72, I was just in Edmonton last month, specifically to see Bad Religion at Sonic Boom. Rise Against was the headliner.

My musical tastes are all over the map, but you can't get enough live music, in my opinion. I'm usually out every week checking out somebody. In my house, if there isn't a football game on, the TV is off and the music is on.

Wait, Rise Against was headlining and Bad Religion was not? I am off to see BR on the 29th in Myrtle Beach and might possibly go see them again on Halloween in ATL. They are by far my favorite punk band. Brain and I will literary have conversations only using their song lyrics.

the metallica version of "die die die my darling" is way better than the Misfits..."don't fry tomatoes baby!" hahaha love it.

Bad Religion's new album is decent, same as all their other stuff. They don't change, and that's why I like them after all these years even though it's not spectacular.

I like the American Psycho album the best, and every song on it is equally my favorite misfits song. I like Graves over Danzig.


fwiw, this is my and my wife's "song":
