    Default Green Day is the greatest punk rock group of all time

    According to Rolling Stone readers, that is.

    1. Green Day
    2. The Clash
    3. The Ramones
    4. The Sex Pistols
    5. The Dead Kennedys
    6. Iggy & the Stooges
    7. Black Flag
    8. The Misfits
    9. Social Distortion
    10. Bad Brains


    Yeah I know making fun of Rolling Stone is like making fun of Sarah Palin's retarded baby, but still, this was too good to let pass without comment.

    I wonder if any of them have ever even heard of The Buzzcocks.

    The readers have been told for so long Green Day is punk they believe it. i was going to go into a bunch of shit about how Green Day as a project is not punk, but it was going to be a "bunch of shit". i think their hearts and origins are in the right place, but then "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Good Riddance" make me think it's time for a disqualification from greatest punk bands of all time consideration. Take them out and add Minor Threat, X or the Buzzcocks and we might not even have a thread about this. If the success of Green Day is what prompted a lot of readers to put them at number one, then the Offspring should be on this list too. Not baggin on the Offspring, i'm sure they would even say they aren't Top 10 worthy. Ah, lists. They tend to suck.

    I like how theyre apparently ''better'' than the group they wanted to be when they started out. (the clash) social D does not belong on that list either. put Minor Threat in that slot and pick somebody else to fill out the 10, and its ok.

    If they HAD to put GD on the list, they should have been last. but they don't really belong anywhere near that list.

    I did like their song What Is My Age Again though.

    But everything after that was just too mainstream you know

    I still read Rolling stone out of habit, but stuff like this always makes me fear for the future. I once had the displeasure of standing through a Green Day set waiting for Beastie Boys. The whole experiance was like eating bad sawara, cleansing your palate with gari, then eating a really great piece of binnaga. /tru stori bra

    i'm not a Green Day hater. Like their music and like them live. They just are a punk influenced rock band to me. Same with Blink 182 (never seen them though). When i heard "Dammit" i thought "these kids like punk, but this isn't punk". i can see why a few of you want to take Social D off the list because of where they have been the past few records, but there is no question they are one of the pioneering So Cal punk bands and "Mommy's Little Monster" is a punk classic. Johnny Cash took Mr. Ness in a different direction. Same was happening to the Clash before they broke up. Not the Cash part necessarily, but breaking out of the punk label because they were to damn talented to be restrained by a genre.

    Remember that Spin list of the 50 best punk albums many years ago? That was surprisingly solid.

    1. The Clash
    2. The Sex Pistols
    3. The Ramones
    4. The Buzzcocks
    5. X
    6. The Replacements (go ahead, argue genre with me)
    7. Television (ditto)
    8. Husker Du (ditto)
    9. Stiff Little Fingers
    10. Wire


    Speaking of arguing genre, Stooges excluded from consideration as being proto-punk, not actual punk. Same with NY Dolls and Lou Reed and god knows who else.

    edit: Patti Smith also excluded simply because in my mind she's entirely her own genre. Plus she's not a group.

    Your list is great, Tom. The Rolling Stones list, as well as a lot of suggestions, include too much hardcore, for which i'd think an entirely different list should be compiled.

    EDIT: Although, if we were going to be nitpicky with choices as you've marked as questionable yourself, i'd probably include SubHumans, Crass, and The Damned as possible substutations
