Top 10 Hardcore Punk BandssamuelMCL7
The Top Ten
Most bands on this list aren't hardcore. Papa Roach aren't even a punk band.
Black flag were pioneers of Hardcore - ryanrimmel
This list is funny. Sex Pistols is good but it's NOT hardcore punk...
Black Flag #1!
Black Flag was the hardcore punk band that made hardcore punk popular.V 4 Comments
One of the most influential punk bands ever combining sounds from a variety of genres. Political satire included and controversy surrounding made them one of the most punk bands around. They should definitely be top 5
Obvious top 1. Their "Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables" (1980) shaped the hardcore punk and it's still the best hardcore punk album ever created.
What the hell? These guys should totally be #1... Or at least top 5
Should be at least in top 5. For me #1V 1 Comment
They aren't hardcore punk (but they are good).
The people who vote on this website and some of the thickest people on the internet!
Not hardcore punk! - Oliwally
Bodies begat hardcore.
I love Keith's work in black flag, but in circle jerks his vocals really are incredible.
Better live band than on Lp, 85' with Chuck Biscuits are at their best.
Okay I think I can come to the consensus that whoever makes these lists has no idea what punk rock and hardcore punk are. papa roach above black flag? Are you joking?
One of my all time favourite bands
The Misfits are the most complex and experimental artists of the hardcore/horror punk era, and are without a single doubt or competitor, my most favorite band of all time. When I was a little kid, I was blown away by the rawness and ferocity of Glenn Danzig's immortal howl, and as a teen, the bliss and raw emotion of Michale Graves's vocals and lyrics. <3 Jerry, Doyle, and Dr. C.H.U.D. michale Graves for the winV 2 Comments
I love the Sex Pistols to bits, but they're about as hardcore as my left testicle. Play it faster!
Do people not understand what hardcore punk is?
R you kidding? Should be in top three somewhere with Misfits and Black FlagV 2 Comments
Dudes, NOFX has been my life for awhile. They inspire me and they introduced me to the punk music.
The greatest hardcore band ever-hands down! One of the founding fathers of this style, there wide sphere of influence affects many bands. They're 1986 album I against I arguably invented post-hardcore as well. Equally adept at rock, reggae, funk and whatever else they feel like playing. Shameful they're not higher on this list.
The best punk band of all time I can't believe there at 11 who votes and puts them at 11 have you ever listen to their music come on give me a break the greatest punk band all times love dead kennedys circle jerks black flag but number 11 get real people to vote or listen to more than one song
What why is bad brains is all the way down here? They ARE hardcore punk. Not the only ones but if we're talking hardcore they need to be at least before the sex pistols I mean come on sex pistols? Who are these people? Bunch of posers really.
Listen to banned in D.C. To know why they should be top 3.V 4 Comments
Only one album to go off of. But it's a true punk classic.. Darby crash is/ was punk. - larslarsinson
Best lyrics ever! Come on people intelligent songs no more to say
Doesn't get much better than suffer
I dunno if they're hardcore punk or punk rock but they are great awesome punk band
Their late stuff was pop not hardcore
They were essentially the gateway to grunge and alt rock. Without Hüsker Dü there would be no Pixies, no Nirvana, and the landscape of rock music today would be much different.
You're always in my heart. stay on the roots
True punk. And anyone that hasnt heard them should they were amazing! THEY SHOULD BE IN TOP 3 at least - larslarsinson
Guess this band is debatable for the list.
Pop Punk. Not hard core
Fat EP (1981) and Milo Goes to College (1982)... isn't that enough?
Completely underrated band
