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
Wire, Chelsea, The Stranglers, The Jam...all in the top ten!
Three immaculate punk through to post-punk albums in the 70s - and they still refuse to confirm as they've reformed and kept producing off the wall stuff.
Seriously, these guys were / are amazing
Good melodic songwriting and catchy riffs. Great punk pop band.
In my top 10 - so many brilliant songs.
Should be at least in the top five 😜
Where is The Cure? ?
A punk influence, but not punk.
Since when is " The Cure " concidered as punk rock? This is cold wave, not punk!
Voice Of A Generation, one of the 80's best punk albums.
I'm so glad they've reformed and touring again. Gonna see them at Leeds Punk Xmas (b4 Angelic Upstarts) and also have been confirmed to play Rebellion 2016 (in Blackpool).V 2 Comments
Just a tad overrated...
He did it his way
Remember climbing the rigging what a weird song man
The Slits were vital for all girl bands with attitude that came out afterwards.
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
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.
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?
'I Hate People' surely one of the most underrated punk tracks of all time!
So they are 41 on the list, SO WHAT?
Animal and co made some classics
We are the league one of the best punk albums made
Very rare to find, but good old punk, good sound great energy
Great live shows
Should be in the top ten. - THC13
Not punk? Did you hear the song " I wanna be free "?V 1 Comment
The best Finnish hardcore/dark post-punk band with a wonderful female vocalist Saku.V 1 Comment
