Best Punk Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Generic - Flipper
22 Punk in Drublic - NOFX

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

23 Raw Power - Iggy & the Stooges

Should be up der

24 80-85 - Bad Religion
25 Smash - The Offspring

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,

26 My War - Black Flag
27 Hardcore '81 - D.O.A.
28 Big Choice - Face to Face
29 The Empire Strikes First - Bad Religion
30 (GI) - The Germs

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

31 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

32 American Idiot - Green Day

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.

How the hell is this 27th? It's better than insomniac, enema of the state and any other album on this list! This album defined the 2000s and propelled Green Day back into superstardom after a decade of declining success

34th!? This is the greatest album of all time! Oh, and how the hell is this below Insomniac. 3rd, Really? - NvGNick

33 Rancid (2000) - Rancid
34 Join the Army - Suicidal Tendencies
35 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

36 Golden Shower of Hits - Circle Jerks
37 Don't Turn Away - Face to Face
38 Leave Home - The Ramones
39 The Stooges - The Stooges
40 Horses - Patti Smith

Higher than I thought. people always forget about patti smtih. this is a peotic masterpiece. makes top ten( for any genre) for me - RecklessGreed
