Best Punk Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
Slime's debut, half in English, half in German, is very raw sounding compared to follow-up 'Alle gegen Alle', but remains one of the best punk-debuts of all time.
'One Chord Wonders', 'Bored Teenagers', 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes' and 'No time to be 21' are all defining songs of '77. And T.V. smith is a living (punk) legend. He has more punk in his little finger than all those new "punk" bands together.
It'll never gonna be as favoured like 'The Clash' or 'London Calling', but 'Know your Rights' and 'Straight to Hell' are classic Clash-Songs.
This is the only PUNK album these guys ever made and it's awesome.
In fact, their first 3 albums should be all in this list.
Having been to Rebellion (Blackpool) a couple of weeks ago, it proved again, that punk's not dead (at all). With bands like Goldblade, Sham 69, UK Subs, 999, T.V. smith & the Bored Teenagers, Subhumans, Gimp Fist, Argy Bargy, Chelsea, The Lurkers, The Damned, etc. All playing, it's pretty much alive. And The Exploited will be playing there next year again.
Actually, titled 'Here are The Sonics' ('65) and is the ultimate Pre-Punk-Album, slowly getting the respect and recognition it deserves, 50 years later. 'Strychnine', 'Psycho', 'Have love will travel', 'The Witch' and others have been covered by almost every punk band at some point in their careers. Bands, like The Fuzztones have even covered the entire album. Garage Rock wouldn't be the same without them.
Brilliant album. Should be in the top 10. - Cyrobian
'Psycho' and 'Strychnine' are pre-punk classics.
Definitely, one of the most influential punk albums of all time.
Their 3rd album from '88 features their finest tracks like 'I lost (my mind)', 'Laughing at me', 'Staring at the sun', 'Lost Highway' and '(I'll drink to this) Love Song'.
Why are the buzzcocks not on here like at all, I know they arnt regarded as as good as Ramones and sex pistols but they were and are still bloody brilliant, this 2002 album is amazing, never mind when it comes from a band from the 70s. useless and jerk are amazing songs, revitalising punk in so many ways.
