Best British Punk Rock Bands From the '70s and '80s
The Contenders: Page 3
The Germs are great, don't get me wrong, but they aren't higher because this is a list of BRITISH PUNK bands, not punk bands who have played in Britain before.
How are they not even nominated?
Top 5 contender easy
Iconic. Darby Crash was hardcore Lou Reed.
Only had one album released called Further Temptations. Included great songs like City Drones, Sad So Sad, and Lookalikes. On my Top 5 list for Best UK Punk Lp.
How madness and the pogues make the list and the Skids be omitted is beyond me...
The first two albums are classics.
The Skids 39th?! This gets crazier. BELOW say Madness in a PUNK list. Skids should be Top 10 - Stuart Adamson influenced SO many groups - eg U2, Manics...V 1 Comment
'I Hate People' surely one of the most underrated punk tracks of all time!
Animal and co made some classics
We are the league one of the best punk albums made
Voice Of A Generation, one of the 80's best punk albums.
Great live shows
Can't believe Angelic Upstarts, 999 and The Lurkers are not in the Top 20. Hard to imagine the British Punk-Scene of the 70's without Nick Cash or Mensi.
Should be top 5
I am shocked to the core that Conflict and their seminal album the ungovernable force isn't anywhere in the list considering they influenced a lot of bands included. The most influential Anarcho punk band after Crass. If you don't know you weren't there.
One of my all time favorites! Wore out the album, New boots and panties.
Blockheads still touring 2104 amazing live band - without Ian of course.
Blockheads...What a Tune.
Some of the best stuff ever written.
Should be way higher, love the earlier stuff. underrated
What other performer/songwriter could you possibly say was as brilliant at both,was usually
legless when he did both, had virtually no teeth,a pretty,a smart girlfriend and a
huge female fan base?
Good melodic songwriting and catchy riffs. Great punk pop band.V 1 Comment
