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

They were great when they were together, and never really got the credit they deserved... Jessicka is an extremely versatile singer; she can go straight from singing to blood curling screaming, which is more than I can say for Billie Joe Armstrong.

168 Ashtray
169 Radio Birdman

My favorites at least.

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

170 The Mummies

Since their first official release, Meet the Residents, the group has released over sixty albums, numerous music videos and short films, three CD-ROM projects, and ten DVDs.
172 Generation X

Great band. I got the greatest hits disc that came out and on the inside liner notes was a family tree of uk punk showing how all the bands had shared members at one point. I used that tree to find classic bands to listen to.

Great band, I love Billy's vocals. Just listen to "Ready, steady, go", "King rocker" and "Love like fire" and you'll understand what I'm talking about. This band deserves higher position on this list.

'Dancing With Myself', anyone? - adfairhurst

Good pop-punk band - Green Day really came out this mold.
Tony James always seemed a bit posh.

173 Faber Drive
174 The Cab

176 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.

177 Fm Static

Fm Static is punk. Not in three chord riffs or hating the system, but in idea and honestly pure awesomeness. Not many people really enjoy this band, but only because not many people listen to this band.

178 Mest

This band should be in the top ten

179 Killing Joke Killing Joke

One of the greatest punk bands of all time & still going strong.

180 Say Anything

Is a real boy is my favorite album by them This band should be in the top ten.
