Best Punk Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 2,000,000 Voices - Angelic Upstarts
62 The Decline - NOFX
63 Ixnay On the Hombre - The Offspring

All I want is one of the most powerful songs ever, and the rest of the album is an absolute masterpiece.

64 Road to Ruin - The Ramones
65 Underclass Hero - Sum 41

This album sucks. Its pop punk and it should not be on here - SmileyStudios

My personal favorite album of all time, not just of punk music. - Maplestrip

66 I'm Stranded - The Saints

I can't Believe no albums from The Saints

67 Eternally Yours - The Saints

This and '(I'm) Stranded' are punk classics; shame they lost the punk spirit on later recordings.

68 Useless - TV Smith

Generally, I don't agree with including compilations in this list (almost cheating really), but 'Useless' features the best of The Adverts and some of his best solo-work (with various backing bands or totally alone) and I'll make an exception. It's important to break the rules, even if they're your own, now and then.

69 Famous Monster - Misfits

Misfits need to be on this list!

70 Social Distortion - Social Distortion

Currently my favorite punk album to listen to. Compared to most punk, it's actually much more chill, but still has that rough edge at times.

Social D not even in the top 100 who made this list?

71 New York Dolls - New York Dolls

Essential Punk-Classic featuring timeless tracks like 'Personality Crisis', 'Pills', 'Trash', 'Jet Boy' and 'Vietnamese Baby'.

72 I Delete - TV Smith
73 Nimrod - Green Day
74 Pink Flag - Wire

Unbelievably good.

Masterpiece, love the sound of the guitar in this album. 10/10 without a doubt. - Cyrobian

75 A Brand New Age - UK Subs

First. - Eric777

76 Hopes Dreams Lies & Schemes - Argy Bargy

One of the best punk albums released in the 21st century. Instant Classic! Check out songs like 'Looking for Glory', 'These Streets' and ' This is me'. Modern punk anthems.

77 How to Clean Everything - Propagandhi

More punk than almost everything on this list!
Top 5 in my opinion

78 Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

How this isn't even on this list?
I hope in one month it is in the top 5 where its belong to be! - RockFan2002

79 Fun House - The Stooges
80 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.
