Alright, I'm a longtime punk fan. My high school years were all about Bad Religion, The Vandals, Bouncing Souls, Strung Out, Agent Orange, and on and on. Lately though, it's been tough to find bands that are just straight-ahead punk, without drifting into emo or metal or goth. To give you a frame of reference for the sort of punk I'm talking about, think The Explosion or (early) Rise Against. So let's hear it, what are some bands these days that play straightforward, no frills fast punk music? List local bands, I don't care how underground. I just want to know what's going on in punk these days. Oh, and if you're gonna post something about how punk died in the 70's or 80's, or how nothing will ever top Black Flag, don't bother. I don't care how old you are.
