Best Punk Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 The Unraveling - Rise Against

Amazing everything is a must listen from this album easily the best rise against album

102 I'm Stranded - The Saints

I can't Believe no albums from The Saints

103 Prehistoric Sounds - The Saints
104 Rebel Songs - Goldblade
105 Marquee Moon - Television

Don't tell me it's not punk. This album evolved from the punk/post-punk/no wave scene of New York, and it is a brilliantly crafted masterpiece. I only wish this band had gone on.

Greatest guitar album of all time, hands-down.

106 Frankenchrist - Dead Kennedys

A slightly more commercial and (over-)produced sound than prior DK-albums, but lyrically just as radical and important.

107 All Hallows E.P. - A.F.I

You can't deny that AFI is punk. Listen to their older material and you will realize that they need to be on this list

108 Slime - Slime

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.

109 Crossing the Red Sea With the Adverts - The Adverts

'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.

110 Bedtime for Democracy - Dead Kennedys
111 In God We Trust, Inc. - Dead Kennedys V 1 Comment
112 Is This Real? - The Wipers
113 Combat Rock - The Clash

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.

114 Back from Samoa - Angry Samoans
115 Take This to Your Grave - Fall Out Boy

This is the only PUNK album these guys ever made and it's awesome.

116 Separates - 999 V 1 Comment
117 Teenage Warning - Angelic Upstarts

In fact, their first 3 albums should be all in this list.

118 Punks Not Dead - The Exploited

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.

119 The Sonics - The Sonics

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.

120 The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers

Definitely, one of the most influential punk albums of all time.
