Anyone here listen to punk or even sort-of-punk? I haven't heard people listening to punk in a long long time!

Anyways, if you haven't listened to punk you should try The Clash (classic), The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and One Armed Scissor. Those are pretty good.

It's primarily what I listen to. Orgcore, hardcore, pop and ska are my favorites. Anything by Chris McCaughan, Tomas Kalnoky, Matt Skiba, Neil Hennessy, Rob Lynch and every band on Plan-It-X Records. Most anything (some I don't like) by Jeff Rosenstock, Ezra and Stza, Fat Mike, Roger Manganelli, David McWane. I prefer The Dead Kennedys and Minor Threat for classic Punk. Only like a few Clash songs. Rudie Can't Fail, Train in Vain and Spanish Bombs I believe.







e: I saw you're from Finland. I tried to think of a Finland punk band I like but could only come up with Millencolin :/. They're Swedish though so that's super close!

Personally I think that Finnish bands are kind of dull. There are few pretty good bands but I think they don't do music anymore.

In the 80's and 90's Finland were full of punk bands. I can't even remember all of the bands! Mine favourite was the Eppu Normaali, which I personally think wasn't punk, which is really famous band in Finland.

Hopefully you didn't listen to Green Day. That ain't real punk.

No offense if somebody here likes that band.

I love punk music! I actually have a top 10 list here Tongue :

10: Ramones
They started out in 1975 in the New York City Underground scene. They played catchy fast punk rock music, they were in a way founders of the punk rock music. Their first album inspired thousands of rock bands across America.
9: Sex Pistols: There impact on the genre was immense, loved or hated for their music they were. They were formed in 1972 as ‘The Strand’ changing their name later to Sex Pistols in 1975, they were the first Punk band of UK.
8: The Clash: Formed in 1976 comprising of Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Joe Strummer. Their first successful album came out in 1979, ‘London Calling’ which changed the scene of Punk Rock.
7: Dead Kennedys
 Formed in 1978 in San Fransisco, CA. They brought some revolutionary changes in punk rock too.
6: Anti-Flag
Formed in Pittsburg, with the original members being Jutine Sane, Andy Falg and Pat Thetic. Their songs were political. They have been a source of inspiration for any punk bands the world over.
5: Bad Religion
 One of the most popular bands in the 80s. They started a craze in California for punk rock. Their songs were based mostly on religion and politics that could get the youth to change the way they look at things and think outside the box.
4: Black Flag
They are credited with starting the underground movement in the United States, dealing with heavy metal and even jazz. They are one of the best hardcore bands in the genre.
3: Minor Threat
One of the most popular bands in the history of punk rock, there songs inspiring an entire generation. They left a mark in the rock band genre.
2: Rancid
Influences for the new wave in punk music in the mid 90s. Rancid was born from the ashes of ‘Operation Ivy’.
1: Bad Brains
Very popular in the 70s. Their songs were influenced by religious issues and not so debatable issues like accident in a block. They have put out some good hardcore rock albums.

And as time has passed by, faster and more energetic styles such as hardcore and Oi have become a genre of punk rock. Musicians started to experiment more, some say it all started with old UK bands but today modern bands are keeping the legacy alive. But I still listen to the "old" bands Tongue

Well, it's too popular, mainstream, if you ask me. It's kinda boring and is not really close to punk. It's more of a rock that contains stuff from punk.

In my own opinion, I like SOME Green Day songs, such as Boulevard of Broken Dreams, etc. I don't listen to them a lot though.
