Best Punk Rock Guitarists
The Top Ten
Johnny is the best. my guitar inspiration. you don't need to know a lot of songs or chords, just play.
He influenced most of punk guitarist.He originally started punk rock music.
Johnny is the best punk rock guitars.He invented punk rock guitar riffs
Johnny is better than steve jones.Even Billie's better than Steve Jones
Who is greg ginn?
The best and most original sound as yet. He could adapt to any other genre, without much effort, and I also speak of Jazz, to which Ginn has been linked. It's my humble opinion that Hendrix would have found the doctor quite interesting, given a time machine and a few minutes to listen. Not that it would be the thing for Hendrix, though listen, yes!
I was going to vote Greg Ginn, but then I remembered the solos that Dr. Know ripped on the Bad Brains self-titled album, especially Big Takeover and Right Brigade. Those solos are just damn awesome.
This guy is better than Hendrix!
Steve's guitar playing has changed my life and continues to be a resounding influence to me.
He created some of the best punk riffs
Listen to 'dry ice' 'only of you' 'judges daughter' 'one for the razorbacks' 'jesus of suburbia' 'still breathing' 'give me novacaine' 'basket case'. You'll eventually get what I'm getting to here
Comes up with the most melodic riffs and solos and is absolutely amazing live
He is the worlds best guitarist ever! He plays the solo's with so blues sound!
How the hell he is 8?
"Belongs way higher in this list way underrated and never skimped on precision or agression."
Just badass! Don't need to say any more.
Best punk guitarist ever.
The best by a long shot. Innovative and has a great feel for his craft.
Mick Jones is probably the reason The Clash had so many great songs. His funky and bluesy guitar playing gave the clash that unique edge like on London Calling.
He has made some of the best punk rock guitar riffs on songs like London Calling
And Tommy Gun
White Man in Hammersmith Palais - listen to the intro
Mick Jones is absolutely AWESOME! :) He is a good song-writer too!
It's rare to listen to a punk rock record and think "Wow, what a good and creative guitarist.". Kudos to East Bay Ray for his "weird" solos and cool riffs.
Great Guitarist! Underrated In My opinion
The guy writes most of bad religion's songs. Enough said
Most catchy, amazing melodic riffs... Exactly what you need from punk
Noodles is underrated he should be at least top ten
His riffs are hella good!
Are you serious, Spike Cassidy from D.R.I. needs to be on this list.
Spike has got more punk heritage than this guy will have in a thousand
Are you kidding me? Stephen is number 1 and it's not close.
Played in the germs!
Doyle would beat the snot out of all other guitarist on the list.
What’s to say... He’s probably the best one
Great style, baroque and sometimes weird melodies, acid telecaster sound. I very appreciate him as song writer. The Stranglers was beyond punk rock but at the same time somwhere into it.
Very unknown, but insanely fast guitar player. Known from "The Toy Dolls". Maybe the best.
How can we ignore a founding member of Minor Threat...
Possibly the most underrated guitarist in history.
Large solo background, very good player.
