Best Punk Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 12

221 Cute Is What We Aim For

This is emo-pop or pop rock. Maybe a little bit of pop punk, but nowhere near punk rock. - Plonderss

222 Wipers

Amazing punk rock band from Portland. Definitely should be way higher on the list!

Without them, Nirvana wouldn't exist, and quite literally. Even Cobain said it. - Gruunge

'Is this real? ' is an absolute classic album.

223 Berurier Noir
224 Ska-P
225 Titus Andronicus

Titus is a fairly unknown band, but critically acclaimed by the rolling stone magazine, these new jersey flame throwers reinvent punk rock on their intellectually genius album, The Monitor. They just keep on improving, and I believe they are good enough to become number one of this list some day.

226 Fear

Fear might as well be the founders of hardcore punk. Their songs I don't care about you is fast loud obnoxious and awesome its everything you need to make a punk song. The majority of their songs are politically correct and are more punk than the majority on this list. It's fair to say that this whole list is a popularity contest

Fear at 119 is almost sadder than Green Day being at 1.

What? This list is crap. Fear should be top 5. "Let's Have A War! "

How is fear, gg Allen and the murder junkies, and total chaos not in top 50!

227 The Flaming Lips The Flaming Lips

Not Punk, who are these imbeciles, putting The Killers, The Police, Muse, Slayer, etc on this list? I like The Flaming Lips, but they don't belong here.

228 Good Riddance

One of my all time favorite Fat bands along with Strung Out & Propagandhi - Parklink

229 Kill the Frontman
230 Stellar Kart

" Awesome Christian Punk band. Should be next to Green Day."

Christian Punk sounds to me a contradiction in itself!

231 Saves the Day
232 Venerea
233 The Police The Police The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. They are most known for their songs "Message In A Bottle", "Don't Stand So Close To Me", "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", "Roxanne", more.

They may have been loosely punk, but they were still punk.

Stin(k)g a Punk, don't think so.

234 P**** Riot

Damn, all the way down here? damn. riot is one of the most punk rock bands ever! thy stood up to an oppressive dictatorship, stood up for what they believed in. plus, there music is pretty damn good!

235 Snow White's Poison Bite

They are a pretty kick ass band and I'm only here to tell you how good they are and when you listen to swpb you wont ever want to leave your room again they have good songs like will you meet me in the graveyard? , there;s a new creep on the block, we all know the weddings over, sleeping beauty and a lot of more songs but listen to them they;re the best in my opinion.

236 Flipper Flipper Flipper is an American rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1979, continuing in often erratic fashion until the mid-1990s, then reuniting in 2005. The band influenced a number of grunge, punk rock and noise rock bands.

I can't believe Flipper was ignored here. There'd be no Nirvana if Flipper never existed. Flipper was a million times better than Nirvana anyhow. In fact Flipper was responsible for creating the new genre of punk that's labeled as "grunge." I'm impressed with how this band slowed things down, listening to this band is the closest anybody could get to doing heroin without actually doing it.

This band should be top five. Will Shatter is better than any of the clowns at the top.

237 No Innocent Victim
238 The Pretty Reckless

They both define punk and rock its like if iron maidens main singer was a girl make Me wanna die is their best song you should listen to them

239 Sonz of Chaos

Probably nobody has ever heard of them but they are amazing there kinda like nirvana meets the pretty reckless meets Green Day there best song is walk on never end street I don't know how long it will take them to get more famous but give them a chance

240 Slime

The best Punk-Band to come out of Germany (since '79, still going). Check out 'Religion' or 'A.C.A.B.'.
