Best Punk Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Plastic Surgery Disasters - Dead Kennedys

One of the best punk albums of all time. Better than their debut, which is also one of the best. - Cyrobian

22 Mondo Bizarro - Ramones

Life altering album. From attacking the PMRC and fighting for music freedom, (Censor) to the emphatically singing about working class struggles/fatigues, (The Job That Ate My Brain) to a beautiful, powerhouse of a single, that called out the blatant apathy in this world with disgust in the most eloquent way that's ever been recorded (Poison Heart). This record even goes 'Touring' back to 1977 punk with 'Rockaway Beach' references. Every song is 5 out of 5 stars and fantastic. Dynamic with its loud, aggressive, fast punk songs to gut wrenchingly powerful songs. This, along with Never Mind the Bollocks, are my favorite punk albums. Mondo Bizarro has always been a pearl of a record, but hasn't been allowed to shine due to the clams that are the media, who diss this cult classic. - shawnwalker

23 (GI) - The Germs

First hardcore punk album - Caleb9000

24 Smash - The Offspring

My favorite offspring album! Should be higher up. # 15 at least

25 Generic - Flipper
26 Don't Turn Away - Face to Face
27 The Stooges - The Stooges
28 Rancid (2000) - Rancid
29 Suicidal Tendencies - Suicidal Tendencies
30 Life in General - MxPx

Once again, this album was a part of the Punk Rock Revival explosion in the 90's. The album is one of the most brilliant and well-written compositions of all time, and is a jewel of of Punk Rock, as well as Skate Punk. The beats are fast, the drums are unimaginably well coordinated, the bass lines are catchy and energetic, and the guitar is schreechy and hard pounding. A true inspiration for the mordern punk scene.

31 Famous Monster - Misfits

Misfits need to be on this list!

32 Horses - Patti Smith V 1 Comment
33 All Killer No Filler - Sum 41

62? Really? Fat Lip embodies punk culture and in too deep is a song everyone can relate to

34 Leave Home - The Ramones
35 Suffer - Bad Religion V 1 Comment
36 Enema of the State - Blink-182

So you like an album with all the songs that sound the same and same 3 chords and one whiny singer and one with no range with someone who lacks in bass and an overrated drummer you guys need help if you like stink 18poo in genral

Almost agree. Travis Barker is a great drummer all around. Certainly not overrated. Not even in the top 10, certainly, but a very good drummer. - Dunsparcity

37 Duh - Lagwagon
38 Brain Drain - The Ramones

One of my personal favorite punk records. It is so underrated... This was the Ramones hardcore punk album, and it proved they could do it better. This album is like art meets (Joey Ramone's) primal scream therapy. It is an indelible album with an unbridled aggressive edge. Lyrics were intelligent and poignantly written, and Johnny's guitar playing is ferocious! Marky beats the skins off the drums too! - shawnwalker

39 Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash - The Replacements

One of the great albums in the Hardcore Punk genre!

40 Out of Step - MInor Threat

What the hell is wrong with all of you? 38th? 90% of these albums aren't even punk! Blink-182 is just pop, and so is New Found Glory. - SmileyStudios

Minor Threat is a classic Should be at least in top 15

One of the best Hardcore punk albums of all time.
