Some good choices. +1 for White Man in the Hammersmith Palais and Guns of Brixton. Oh alright and everything on Give 'Em Enough Rope.

SLF 'Suspect Device' of course, plus 'Tin Soldiers' a great choice. Always liked Johnny Was, too.

The Fall, obviously. "No Christmas for John Key" (see what I did there?) and the magnificent 'Totally Wired'

Magazine 'Song from Under the Boards' but were Magazine really punk? Similarly the Ruts 'Into the Valley'

Ramones 'Blitzkrieg Bop'

Maybe my real favourite was Richard Hell and the Voidoids 'Blank Generation' from the fantastically titled album 'Love Comes in Spurts'

Some great Kiwi punk too: Spelling Mistakes, Toy Love

And Green Day - great band, but '21 Guns' is not a punk song. It's a ballad. If we're doing ballads by bands that are sometimes punk, I have another list!

Yes, because Buzzcock's Howard Devoto was part of Magazine, so therefore it was genetically-modified punk. Secondhand Daylight...

Chris Knox +1. Also not-so-good ones, like Domestic Blitz, cos I was their drummer, and part of their downfall...

not that's it's punk, but I love the "the disposable heroes of hiphoprisy" cover/revamp.

Some top tunes here but I have to concur with Crusty

CrustyMTB wrote:Hard to chose:
Holiday in the Sun by the Pistols, or Sailin On by Bad Brains, or New Day Rising by Husker Du (don't know how to do umlauts)


+1 for the whole New Day Rising Album. All time fave Husker disc is Zen Arcade though; Broken home broken heart, Indecision time.. ahhh cracking stuff. :music:
