Best Punk Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 20
More pop music that people confuse with punk. An insult to the whole genre and movement. Same applies to Flatcat and Allister.
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.
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.).V 1 Comment
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.
A silly bunch of punks, but they are awesome I love their stupidly fun lyrics!V 1 Comment
Fast punk attitude and rhythms with a sense of fun. These people can really play.
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!
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.
Singer John Robb started in '77 with The Membranes (still going), before forming Goldblade, always advocating the 'Spirit of Punk'.
I love the their cover version of 'Heart full of Pride' (original by Perkele), but their own songs are great too.
Unlike other punk bands, their music has variety... alt. rock, punk, even metal and jazz. Incredible skill.
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.
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
Have a look on you tube, try born out of time, or coming apart, old band, great band, still recording today.
