The Top Ten
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!
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
Who is greg ginn?
The guy writes most of bad religion's songs. Enough said
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

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 best by a long shot. Innovative and has a great feel for his craft.
Mick Jones is absolutely AWESOME! :) He is a good song-writer too!
Most catchy, amazing melodic riffs... Exactly what you need from punk
Possibly the most underrated guitarist in history.
What’s to say... He’s probably the best one
Doyle would beat the snot out of all other guitarist on the list.
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
Just badass! Don't need to say any more.
