Best Punk Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
Fantastic record, fantastic band. Amazing. NOFX deserves to be number one, and Green Day does not belong on this list at all. Green Day is lame.
Just another fantastic record, which influenced many Ska/skate punk bands.
It's not even their best album, but it deserves to be in the top 10 of this list.
Beautiful album from the very first second of the sound
My favorite offspring album! Should be higher up. # 15 at least
What? Smash was the best selling album ever sold on an independent label. And isn't the whole independent label thing what makes punk what it is,
This album is dark, aggressive, and raw. Should be top 10 for sure. Who the hell is Green Day? Aren't they the band who do live makeup commercials in stadiums for 100 bucks a ticket...
This album gets my vote; it's punk at it's ugliest and truest form
First hardcore punk album - Caleb9000
One of the best punk albums of all time. Better than their debut, which is also one of the best. - Cyrobian
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
Higher than I thought. people always forget about patti smtih. this is a peotic masterpiece. makes top ten( for any genre) for me - RecklessGreed
Although it's not as "Punk" as some of the other contenders (or even other Green Day albums at that), American Idiot was arguably the greatest achievement in modern rock. Blending other genres like Alternative and Emo into Green Day's previously established signature tone, as well as Armstrong's simple story that he tells throughout, American Idiot is an epic that can make you feel all sorts of things with it's run time. - Evan64aw
Republicans must have gotten to this list :( - mr_crossover27
I'm a republican and I still think this should be in the top ten. The storyline is beautiful, as are the lyrics and insturments. Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool really know how to be a great band and touch the hearts of many. American Idiot is my favorite album of all time. This should really be higher.
34th!? This is the greatest album of all time! Oh, and how the hell is this below Insomniac. 3rd, Really? - NvGNickV 4 Comments
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
The blink essence is on this álbum I'm like so much
It’s funny so many people (now) hate on blink 182. But hey why don’t you look at the richest punk singers of all time. Guess who’s on the very tip top of it. BLINK. So obviously they were and still are pretty damn successful and a lot of people like their music.
