Best Punk Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

102 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.

103 Bedtime for Democracy - Dead Kennedys
104 In God We Trust, Inc. - Dead Kennedys V 1 Comment
105 Is This Real? - The Wipers
106 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.

107 Back from Samoa - Angry Samoans
108 Take This to Your Grave - Fall Out Boy

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

109 Separates - 999 V 1 Comment
110 Teenage Warning - Angelic Upstarts

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

111 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.

112 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.

113 The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers

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

114 Schmutzige Zeiten - Daily Terror
115 STP Not LSD - Angry Samoans

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'.

116 Appeal To Reason
117 Buzzcocks - The Buzzcocks

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.

118 Blackout - Dropkick Murphys
119 Live In a Dive - Subhumans
120 21st Century Breakdown - Green Day
