Best Punk Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 20

381 Teenage Head

RIP Frankie Venom - these guys rocked

Best canadian punk band ever

382 Sloppy Seconds

They've been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk and stupid which says it all. Brainless, offensive garbage - an insult to Ramones-styled punk rock. Don't buy any of their albums.

Go buy every album they have ever put out and try to find one bad song. You won't be able too. Kings of junk rock

383 Mob 47

Whoever put them and some of the other Swedish bands on this list, thank you very much for introducing me to some great music.

384 Slick Shoes

More pop music that people confuse with punk. An insult to the whole genre and movement. Same applies to Flatcat and Allister.

385 Jawbreaker

How is Jawbreaker lower than Black Veil Brides? They have way more talent than BVB will ever have.

I mean for real? Blake Swarzenbacher is a lyrical genius. Bad Scene, Everyone's Fault.

386 Rich Kids on LSD

If this band is not on the list, than the list is meaningless
One of the best punk bands in history
Rich kids on lsd

I agree, great band. In less than a year ('05/'06) the sadly lost three members (Derrick Plourde, Jason Sears and Richard A. Manzullo - R.I.P.).

387 La Femme

Not to be confused with French psych-punk rock band who are not bad either.

La Femme 77-82 were much better & more loved then the Boys Next Door in Melbourne & Australia wide. 1st Aussie Punks on national T.V. & 1st Independant single to go No1.

388 KSMB KSMB KSM was an American all-girl teen rock band from Los Angeles, California that was active from 2006 to 2010. The band consisted of lead singer Shelby Cobra, lead guitarist Shae Padilla, rhythm guitarist Katie Cecil, bassist Sophia Melon and drummer Kate Cabebe.

A silly bunch of punks, but they are awesome I love their stupidly fun lyrics!

389 The Rezillos

Fast punk attitude and rhythms with a sense of fun. These people can really play.

390 Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers

Their debut-album 'The Modern Lovers' is one of the most influential records of all time; not just for punk. No surprise, it was produced by John Cale (ex-Velvet Underground, one of the most influential bands) and features classics like 'Roadrunner' (covered by Sex Pistols), 'Pablo Picasso' (covered by Bowie), 'She Cracked' (covered by Siouxsie & the Banshees and Echo & the Bunnymen), 'I'm Straight' and 'Dignified and Old'. Essential listening!

391 The Story So Far
392 No-Cash

Just checked them out. I'm not the biggest fan of ska punk, but they're pretty good. Always nice to listen to new decent bands. thanks!

Look them up. Life = changed for the better.

393 Goldblade

Singer John Robb started in '77 with The Membranes (still going), before forming Goldblade, always advocating the 'Spirit of Punk'.

394 Gimp Fist

I love the their cover version of 'Heart full of Pride' (original by Perkele), but their own songs are great too.

397 Pretty Shanks

Unlike other punk bands, their music has variety... alt. rock, punk, even metal and jazz. Incredible skill.

398 Stockholms Negrer

Everyone thinks they're racist but they really aren't they are ANTI-Nazi

Two of the members formed later Human Error and guitarist Mats Larsson also played with legendary Swedish punk band KSMB.

399 Drug Squad
400 Rude Kids

Another great early Swedish ("forgotten") punk band. Their first single 'Raggare is a bunch of total classic Tony Parsons named it 'Single of the Year' in 1978 in the NME
