Best Punk Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Busted

I love Busted, but they are not a punk rock band, they are a pop band and they should not be on this list.

Are you people for real?

Are you kidding?

Great band deserves better ranking

124 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

My Chemical Romance is so much more than people say they are. "Helena", "Mama", "Welcome to the Black Parade"... They've helped me through a lot. I've introduced them to a lot of people who immediately turn around and ask "Oh are you suicidal? " "Do you need help, like a counselor? " No, thank you very much. These four men have helped me through some hard times and I'm very grateful to them.

I don't get why people don't accept their music as punk rock, or even rock! I mean, come on, Bro? Have you even listened to them? They're not 'JUST EMO'. They are more than that. Believe me. And no, I am not 15 year old kid who finds their lead singer attractive. I listen to them because they're good

Okay. My Chemical Romance is one of my favorite bands ever, and will be for a long time. But they have a grand total of about... 4 songs that even brush the corners of Punk Rock, which this list is about. Just saying.

Not punk. - naFrovivuS

125 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Fall Out Boy's song is lyrically diverse and shown to still be relevant to this day. FALL OUT BOY IS THE BEST. But they actually Don't care.

For once they deserve the place they were given "dinosaurs will die"

Probably the worst band to ever come into the music industry. Not punk rock not even pop punk.

Fall out boy rules no matter what

129 Streetlight Manifesto

This band would be way higher if it were more well known, and any one who knows of streetlight are more likely going to be very well versed in the genre and have a plethora of equally respectable punk bands to chose from (NOFX, Bad Religion, Bad Brains, Dead Milkmen and Snuff to name a few). So because such an unfortunate situation, pop/punk bands that have infested this list have been ranked higher than this well deserving band.

Only the greatest ska band to ever grace the existence of humanity. Plus they did one of the most punk things a person could do. They downright told their fans to pirate their album, just so their label would make less money. Now that is punk.

Half of these bands aren't even punk and streetlight manifesto at 186 is the saddest thing I have ever heard or seen

This band is great I recommend it to anyone who likes Bad Religion, NOFX, and any 90s punk band.

130 The Get Up Kids

"Something to write home about" is a grossly underrated album

131 Sloppy Meateaters
132 The Living End

Best bloody band in the world, they changed my approach to music. And I owe everything to these guys. One of the best live bands in the world as well.

Crossover between Green Day and the Stray Cats! Rockabilly Baby!


My old band Nasty Pasties played a lot of shows and tours with these guys. Trav their drummer through the 90s and early 2000s was a personal friend of mine. If you like psycobilly and The Living End check out another Aussie band called The Fireballs. Chris credits them with the main influence of The Living End along with Stray Cats - Parklink

136 The Queers

The Queers are a classic/pop punk band that have been around for more than 30 years. They deserve to be way higher on this list. Joe King has always stayed true to the ideas of punk, where other bands have sold out.

classic punk band that you'd never think they were from new hampshire

The Queers are up there with the Ramones, fantastic!

Why is this so low? Vote higher

138 The Jesus Lizard

Indeed, deserves closer attention. Jesus Lizard is one of those small rare gems not many people know about.

A one of a kind punk band that needs to be considered for this list!
