Best Punk Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 8

141 MDC

how the hell is mdc number 94 they are better the all the pop bands are here they are a great hardcore punk band

142 The Weirdos

Been announced for Rebellion Festival '16; can't wait.

How the hell are they THIS LOW?

143 Rufio

Absolutely fantastic band, they have by far some of the greatest intros into songs I've ever heard. They're instrumental capabilities are nothing short of incredible. I feel the only thing that held them back were the vocals, never felt they fit with the rest of the band.

What the hell? I can't believe Rufio wasn't in this list, A real PUNK ROCK band, unlike a lot of the bands on this list

Rufio is one of the few REAL punk rock bands on this list. Seriously, how many of these "punk rock bands" have released more than one punk rock album. Eg. Green Day = were punk rock but NOT NOW.

144 Die Toten Hosen Die Toten Hosen Die Toten Hosen is a German rock band currently consisting of Campino (vocals), Andreas von Holst (guitar), Michael Breitkopf (guitar), Andreas Meurer (bass) and Vom Ritchie (percussion), that was formed in 1982. more.

You'l never walk alone

One of the biggest band in Germany who have got their roots in punk, in fact, one could still class their music now as 'stadium punk' (a bit like Green Day). Songs like 'An Tagen wie diesen' und 'Bonnie & Clyde' are pretty great anthems, not to forget 'Pushed again', a brilliant cover of the T.V. Smith song. And also, their album 'Learning English: Lesson One' is an only covers album of old school punk classics (incl. songs by Ramones, 999, The Adverts, UK Subs, Sham 69, Chelsea, The Clash, Sex Pistols, etc.)

Great German punk rock band.
Their songs of 80s like a "Hier Kommt Alex"
Are awesome.

145 No Use For Name

Tony sly=one of the best songwriter in punkrock

I cannot believe that NUFAN is so low on the list!

Oh come on NUFAN on 155?

I've never known a better writer or a better guy
His songs wouldn't just touch you, they would punch you in the eye
It doesn't happen a lot when everybody has the same thought “He wasn't supposed to die”
So let's clank our beers and give three cheers for Tony Sly
-- Fat Mike

146 Bunkface

Best Punk Rock band from Malaysia

147 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!

This band kicks ass, number 142.. don't think so. This should be above Simple Plan for sure.

154 Richard Hell and the Voidoids

The Voidoids were true punk unlike many of the bands listed here. Their song 'Blank Generation' is the BEST punk song ever!

'Blank Generation' is one the essential punk albums of all time.

Johnny copped his look from Richard. On of of the true originators.

155 The Distillers

I may Be Old to Say that these are One of The Best newish Punk bands and the 2nd Best Female Band Singers etc ever

The best of the best I want more bands like this

I love FOB, P! ATD and Paramore but they are NOT punk. The Distillers are. And they're awesome, I wish there were more bands similar to them today

261? You've got to be kidding me!

157 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

They aren't punk, they're emo. Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Ramones, and early Social Distortion=punk. Paramore, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco=emo. Please get informed. - shawnwalker

159 Radio Birdman

My favorites at least.

195? Really?
Well, guess they arnt really punk... Punk had not yet risen when birdman started.

160 The Replacements The Replacements

All you sum 41, My chemical romance voters, let me put it this way but, perhaps you remember the Disney movie "Open Season" with really cool soundtracks? Those tunes are by Paul Westerberg, an American genius and the s/sw of The Replacements. They are from mid 80's and simply one of the best band ever existed
