    OK, I know I may be setting myself up here but I don't consider alot of the newer bands i.e. Blink 182 to be punk. I am not putting down their music as I do like them. Maybe I am getting old but I feel that punk is best represented by bands like The Ramones, Iggy and The Stooges, Black Flag, The Dead Boys, The MC5, and to a lesser extent bands like Minor Threat, Fugazi, and The Descendants. Again I'm NOT putting down these newer bands I just don't think they are punk.

    I agree with you all but the part that Minor Threat, and the Descendents are to a lesser extent punk, maybe Fugazi but not the others.
     
  3. Farley, we've talked about this a lot, and it never really gets anywhere productive. see such threads as "favorite punk bassist." i'm closing this one down, we need to have a bit of a resting period before another punk debate.

    peace
