  1. Ok... I have listened to many many punk bands.. and now im trying to find more to download... So.. if you are in a punk band .. or know of some cool punk bands.. list the names...
    the main kind im looking for are political ones.. duh... what im saying is.. not the blink 182 type... more like anti-flag, propaghandi and minor threat kind.. K... thanks:)
     
  2. From this list...the Sex Pistols. Nothing more needs to be said.
     
  3. Where's Rancid? Where's Alkaline Trio, or Get up Kids?


    Oh well, off that list I guess I'll pick NOFX
     
  4. Early RATM before they sold out... And the lead singer left, and they got in ties with fredama durmst, and before their guitarist became a "guitar legend" an his head got big... So many things ruin good bands. I agree with JR rancid should be up there.

    i voted pennywise but i was leaning towards anti-flag.WHERE THE HELL IS RANCID?this is a bass site,and matt freeman is a good punk bassisst.
     
  6. rage against the machine? jesus...
     
  7. tom morello? big head? man, thats just ignorant. you know what that man drives? a ford windstar minivan, and he lives in a modest house too. he doesnt claim to be awesome, he just claims to have style, which he does.
     
  8. no rancid, no vote.

    i was about to post the same :)

    RATM has some punk background but... THEY ARE NOT PUNK

    the other can be called "punk", ok... i just have a problem with that one.

    Alkaline Trio's more indie, same with GUK.

    P.S. GUK was incredible, when I saw them.

    *insert sticking tongue out*

    BAD BRAINS are far and away the greatest and most influential punk/hardcore band ever.
     
  14. well, if we're going to get into specifics, then hot water music is emo. but hardcore and emo are still punk, IMO.

    Actually, HWM's "melodic punk."

    Emo's bands like "The Jazz June" :)
     
  16. well, i think they're emocore, like jawbreaker was. but that just demonstrates how semantically ridiculous all this is. i just don't think you can say minor threat is not punk. :)
     
  17. Misfits anyone :rolleyes:?

    I really am not big on punk unless it is local. I don't know why, it just seems better to me when they are local (maybe becuase they are my friends :p)

    Misfits are far from local, but the misfits were/are awesome. Their newer stuff has a metal slant to it. I was really into American Psycho, but a lot of the stuff after it got too metal for me.

    Eh, it gets tricky.
    Punk's like the macro-genre

    Then you get into little sub-genres like emo, emocore, indie, pop (punk), street, crust, political, ska (/punk), etc.

    There's also IMO a "punk" sub-catagory inside the "punk" macro-catagory.
