Best British Punk Rock Bands From the '70s and '80s
The Contenders: Page 3
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
The Slits were vital for all girl bands with attitude that came out afterwards.
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.
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
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!
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.
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
Not punk? Did you hear the song " I wanna be free "?V 1 Comment
I have never heard anyone like him play solos and rhythm together, saw him 3 times in France last year. superb
Truly an amazing band. Listen to Olga's guitar playing. He plays lead and rhythm like a god in their recordings and live. Truly the best.
Absurd Ditties is their best album, and maybe the best punk album I have ever heard.V 1 Comment
