245 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

This band is legendary and just because a lot of their music is more hip hop/rock than punk, doesn't make them not punk.

I love you guys so much, your music speaks to my soul

Laugh out loud. Really 327? How. The brought punk from the underground to the mainstream. If not for them 1/2 the bands on the list would not exist.

I've been listening to this band since I was six years old, then I saw them play at the 2013 Riot Fest in Chicago. They're totally punk, and they're lyrics are so poetic.

So emotional and awesome band. Maybe their later stuff isn't anymore punk but brilliant hits like "Miss murder", "Love like winter", "Girls not grey" and "Silver and cold" just ROCK! please vote!

252 Alkaline Trio Alkaline Trio Alkaline Trio is an American punk rock band from McHenry, Illinois. The band consists of guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba, bassist and vocalist Dan Andriano, and drummer Derek Grant.

The lesser known but better Blink 182. Trust me I know and my name is based off a Blink song! Their writing is better, the vocals (especially on later tracks are superb) and the mixture of dark comedy and satire with serious songs is perfect. - DysenteryGary

What the hell are Trio doing all the way down here. I do not understand how half these bands have ended up above these guys, Truly wrong! Top 5 for sure, If you haven't already, Listen to them!

How can they not even be on the list? All time low, simple plan? They shouldn't be on the top list of anything. but alkaline trio? What's the world coming to...

Waay better than their ranking

Easily top 10. My Brain Hurts is one of the greatest albums ever.

254 The Dead Boys

True sign if greatness, can listen to them over and over and it never gets tired

Dead boys were the greatest punk band of all time. Can listen to Yoing Loud and Snotty over and over again and it is as great today as it was in 1978

The dead boys at 96? Stiv was number 1! 1


255 MxPx MxPx MxPx is an American punk rock band from Bremerton, Washington founded in 1992 as Magnified Plaid. The band has skate punk leanings, with connections to the pop punk scene.

Although there is a big basket of punk groups out there. MxPx is one that has been copied over and over again. The amount of excellent songs they have released is unbelievable. I'd say they should be in the top 3 for sure.

Can't believe they're all the way down here! One of the best pop-punk bands out there.

The singer looks like an uglier fat Mike with tiny eyes.

Below 5 seconds of summer... Really? No offense to f seconds of summer but come on...

Beste Band der welt.aus Berlin

257 Hawk Nelson

Why wouldn't you like songs like You Have What I Need and Alive? I admit they're not as good as they used to be, new singer and all, but they definitely deserve top 10 at least.

If you wanna live life loud put ya hands up! This band is awesome!
