    If you like Rancid you'll love the Clash.

    The Clash was easily Rancid's biggest influence.

    Check out their self-titled album.

    I asked because it's odd that the influencee came before the original.

    That is a very very mighty list.
  19. in random order....

    1. Blink 182 - Dude Ranch (fav cd. of all time)
    2. The Offspring - Ixnay on the hombre (2nd fav)
    3. Rancid - Let's Go
    4. AFI - Answer that and stay fashionable

    7. AFI - Art of Drowning
    8. The Offspring - Ignition
    9. Millencolin - Pennybridge Pioneers
    10. Pennywise - Straight Ahead

    whats strange is half of these cds i dont even own, i just mainly have the mp3s, but i do need to snag some of these sooner or later (but im in debt 200 bucks, so it might be awhile :eek: )

    EDIT: i decided I like Pennywise's "straight ahead" better than blink's TOYPAJ, so i changed it
  20. Alright here is what I hope to be the real list all of these albums are very important to punk music, and surprisingly most of them have been ommitted from everyones lists so far. The one thing I know about myself is that I love punk and consider that as something I know a lot about so I hope these choices will hold up with you all.

    (In Order)

    1. Nofx- White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean

    2. Bad Religion- Against the Grain

    3. Nofx-Punk In Drublic

    4. Pennywise-About Time

    5. Offspring-Smash

    6. Green Day-Dookie

    7. A.F.I.-Very Proud of Ya

    8. Face to Face-Big Choice

    9. Nofx-Ribbed

    10. Rancid-Let's Go
