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 - zxm
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!
Comes up with the most melodic riffs and solos and is absolutely amazing live
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
He is the worlds best guitarist ever! He plays the solo's with so blues sound!
How the hell he is 8?V 9 Comments
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
The guy writes most of bad religion's songs. Enough said
"Belongs way higher in this list way underrated and never skimped on precision or agression."
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
Mick Jones is absolutely AWESOME! :) He is a good song-writer too!
Great Guitarist! Underrated In My opinion
Just badass! Don't need to say any more.
Most catchy, amazing melodic riffs... Exactly what you need from punk
How can we ignore a founding member of Minor Threat...
What’s to say... He’s probably the best one
His riffs are hella good!
Noodles is underrated he should be at least top ten
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
Possibly the most underrated guitarist in history.
Doyle would beat the snot out of all other guitarist on the list.
Very unknown, but insanely fast guitar player. Known from "The Toy Dolls". Maybe the best.
Played in the germs! - carterthedrummer
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.
John William "Paul" Weller Jr is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Weller achieved fame with the punk rock/new wave/mod revival band The Jam.
