    Hardcore wasn't some big separate genre back then. I dunno how you could leave some crucial punk bands off the list because of the "hardcore" designation. It's all part of punk's history. If they were trying to say some 90's ultra-militant HC was punk, I'd see your point.

    Replace the MISFITS with The Fall and GB??? You should get your ass kicked for this comment. The Misfits are one of the most influential, well-known and truly original sounding punk bands of their era. Glenn Danzig's fucked all your bitches, he is the original based god.

    No. It's not the top 10 punk-inspired-kinda-emo bands.

    No one gave 2 fucks about Death before someone unearthed that record a couple years back. Now the record is re-pressed and white people can say they like Death and sound smart.

    Just because nobody liked 'em doesn't mean they weren't great, and frankly I'm not really sure what being white has to do with anything.

    People not liking them doesn't even make sense anyways, because I would say the Germs are one of the best punk bands of all time, and fuck the Germs.

    Thanks, thread, for reminding me why I don't give a fuck about punk any more.

    Actually, hardcore was seen as a distinct offshoot from punk at the very time it was happening.

    I left hardcore bands off my list because even the ones that were good werent' good enough.

    apparently, 80s hardcore is essential, while 90s hardcore is ridiculous.

    The Ramones were the start of everything, as far as I can tell, and therefore deserve top honors. But Green Day are the most commercially successful punk band, I don't think there's any arguing that. I always thought it was kind of lame that the 924 Gilman crowd begrudged them their success. But when my wife and I went by there last year, it was pretty clear from the people we talked to that they're proud of their local hero's nowadays, as they should be, Green Day are a fucking great band and their shows have been a blast over the years.

    They definitely rank right up there. I'd have Bad Religion on there too.

    On where?

    I love Ramones, but they'd never deny that most of their music was just amped up girl-group music and 50s rock, played fast. So if we wanna give top honors, how about Johnny Cash, Ronnie Spektor or Link Wray? Fuckin' punk rock right there.

    and the Pistols were just Chuck Berry played loud and fast. at least the riffs were. But I think in both the case of the Ramones and the Sex Pistols, the vocals and lyrics were such a departure that it made a whole new thing.

    Trying to analyze, label, and rate punk rock is so oxymoronic.

    True, and if we were trying to actually make some sort of "punk rock" chart both would have to be progenitors for the reason of riffs and vocals played fast, loud and originally. But Green Day belongs approximately in the Boston realm of things (coming from an unabashed Boston fan.)
