107 Leftover Crack

There a Pretty good band with a nice style.

This band defines punk for me.

108 Less Than Jake

Incredible Ska-Punk band. However, any one educated enough in punk to know how incredible these guys are are going to know that groups like NOFX, the misfits, dead milkman, or bad religion are more deserving of the title of best punk rock band, that being said they out class the pop punk section (blink182, sum41, My Chemical Romance etc...) by miles

GREAT BAND but they are ska punk not punk rock, still a great band though!

174. Wow, the sheer level of talent shines with endless smiles for the listener!

109 D.I.
110 Patti Smith

She was a real pioneer. Horses is a masterpiece.

"Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine."
When we talk about Patti Smith, we're talking about the marriage of poetry and punk.

111 Guttermouth

I saw these guys live in whistler be at garfinkles and they were super good and professional!

112 The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

They are an awesome band and are great in ska, but their punk influence was pretty small when pitted against other third wave bands, so most punk fans wont really know about them.

These guys are awesome and they ROCKED it when I saw them live. Yet, emo bands like lit and simple plan are still ahead. don't get it...

These guys are so good and professional!

113 Saosin

This band has the most distinctive style among all these bands here. Their songs are very "mysteriously" unique. Listen to "Changing", "It's Far Better to Learn", "Bury Your Head", "What Were We Made For", "Lost Symphonies", "You Are Not Alone", "Voices".

I'd say the most underrated band of all times. Just spare your 10 mins and listen to "you are not alone" and "it's far better to learn" this band kicks ass seriously man...

I seen these guys at taste of chaos and they are pretty much amazing.

Awesome new band, saw them in concert, best experience of my life! Their music is wicked awesome!!!

114 Hinder Hinder Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, lead singer Austin Winkler and guitarist Joe "Blower" Garvey.

Not only is this band not punk, but they aren't a good band either

Hinder is great but have you heard the lyrics to that song? He even admitted that he just came up with the song to piss people off and get publicity and he's kind of an ass to his fans too

this band is the best! LIps of an Angel anybody?
You have to know that one!

115 Superman Is Dead

I never feels boring to listen all of their song like "King, Queen & Poison", "Saint Of My Life" and many more. I think this band is one of great punk rock band!

Come on lets go. Come on lets go Indonesia!

The most band from Bali

Truly reflection of angels and demons, heaven and hell, truck driver and "Pujangga". - dikadelo

Should be a little higher
