From the Sex Pistols to Against Me!, from folk all the way to anarchopunk, this is a thread for those who love punk rock, the angry rantings of a lost generation.

I use to love punk music. I don't listen to it as much. But I still like bands such as Black Flag, Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, The Adolescents, Rancid, Sex Pistols...

If anyone chimes in on this thread with some band like "My Chemical Romance" I will put my fist through the computer screen, assimilate radio waves, hunt them down and beat them to death...

Seriously, I was raised on Punk Rock due to my older sisters and finding that punk really only existed in the late 70's early 80's, everything else is just not the same, not saying its bad music or anything...just not a great as the originators

I love modern punk rock which has been declared off limits in a thread about appreciating punk rock within less then five posts, I'm impressed

That said, I do love some punk rock from the 70's as well (The Clash, Sex Pistols, etc.) but I'm not one to define my music by genre because the genres really mean little to me (I change all the genres in my iTunes library to "Musical")

@aztek_the_lost: Punk is still alive, Aztec. Whatever your tastes, feel welcome and share with us. Didn't you read the OP? Hell, I included folk punk!

@Kal'smahboi: Give me a list of acceptable punk rock bands, albums, songs, etc. and I can tell you which ones I like :P

Really, musical genres are kind of difficult for me to comprehend because most bands/albums aren't placed in a single genre and a lot of genres are a combination of other genres.

I'm really more into Hardcore, but I do appreciate some Punk music. I'll contribute.

The Sex Pistols and Billy Talent(if you consider them) are probably the only Punk Rock bands I listen to.

My Chemical Romance, despite their pop ballads make some damn fine music. I wouldn't classify it as "punk" in the same vein as The Sex Pistols or Ramones, but it's a modern sub genre offshoot of punk.

Honestly Social Distortion is probably my favorite band of all time.

I never said there music was bad, I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy many of their songs. As a long time fan of punk rock it irks me when bands like them and Blink 182 get called punk rock because their merchandise and likeness are sold at Hot Topic......

Real Punk wasn't about anything in particular, many different bands stood for different things and had many different sounds, however it was important that you went to the live shows and embraced the lifestyle that accompanied it, younger kids these days wear some black and have all the Ramones songs on their Iphone and consider themselves goth or punk....laughable. Punk music was always sort of an oxymoron of what it stood for anyways, thats my belief in what I stated before about hasn't really existed since the 80's

Like the old school stuff from the 70's and early 80's. The early Kennedys or Minor Threat for example..
