Didn't you hear my friend? Punks Dead.

I used to listen to a lot of "punk" music in high school. Sex Pistols, Dead Boys, Ramones (They hated being called punk though), The Business. Then 80's hardcore bands like Youth Brigade, Black Flag, Dead Kennedy's, and so on and so on. I still listen to The Clash from time to time but for the most part I'm not really into that trend anymore, not at all really. I'm actually quite happy that those days are behind me.

Hahaha that's to bad CrimsonFinality, I'm 24 and that seems like the only constant in my life since I was 11. I like all those bands except the pistols and dead boys. Youth Brigade is one of my all time favorite bands.

gensin Bad Religion is alright... I dunno just never really got into them.

This is the first time I've heard The Last Resort they are pretty good their drummer looks super familiar is he in a Booze and Glory video?

Devotchkas rule.

Thanks for sharing The Interrupters, have you heard Hub City Stompers?

Hah its dead because you say its dead. True those bands are all aged and have either given up or on what seems like their last leg but it's still alive and theirs still some actual punk music out there being produced outside of them or often along side them. I wouldn't say it's dead but I would say its dieing. Especially with the ever changing music industry of today and what they have adopted as "punk" & I do agree it is easy to grow out of.

The only place it's dieing is The US and Europe. Punk is still Huge in South America and Asia. I mean China is just now discovering Punk I think in a few years when everyone gets sick of the "plastic" radio rock and edm it'll come back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTBzByvxhwc

Thats a shame if you ever feel like giving bad reilgion another try check out No Control album if your into the more agressive style. Or if you haven't heard their newest album check that out was out last year about this time.

I don't think the drummers from there but i'm not sure a few of them are from other bands & i know the singer was in the 4-skins. But The Last Resort has been around since the early 80's & they released an Anthems album last year that was great.

Saw the interrupters live in October with rancid and the singers sideproject Tim Timebomb & was very impressed with the interrupters. Tim Armstrong helped put that group together I believe. Some of the guys in the band used to play shows with the Transplants & singer was a solo artist. Their album is set to be out sometime soon.

I haven't listened to them no I'll check it out, if you like rancid check out Tim timebomb though it's not punk. Its like folk/blues/rockabilly/ska with rancid vocals. He covers alot of their rancid material too.

I've been listening to Punk for a long time, back when The Police were initially considered punk. It's true. Listen to their first album. :D

Yeah I guess I probably should at least give Bad Religion another chance. I dunno why just never really liked them.

I think think I saw the drummer for Last Resort in the Booze and Glory London Skinhead crew video. They are really good. Are you into Yellow Stitches or any of the American Oi bands?

How was Rancid I would have like to see them just don't know if it's gonna be worth the money.

Yep, a lot of people do too, though that's not how they got their start. I was just giving some perspective on how long I've been listening.
And, over the years, I've gotten a lot less fussy as to the "purity" of punk. The Ramones and The Clash are still 2 of my favorites.


I also have to recommend Bad Religion. They are well worth giving a 2nd and 3rd chance to.

For sure I cant say I enjoy all bad religion but there's some great tracks within their numerous albums. Saw them live recently as well & it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. If you hate the police that much I wouldn't listen to bad religions album Into the Unknown even they hate it its like flock of seagulls or something hah it was a rare album, Id go with Against the grain/No Control/Recipe for hate.

Its possible I want to say I read something before about members of Last Resort being in Booze and Glory but I really can't remember where.

Na never heard of them but most the Oi punk I listen too is from over seas I'm sure I've heard some but I only started listening to Oi and bands like the last resort a couple years ago.

Rancid was worth the money in my opinion, of course it would be less so if it opened up with some terrible bands. When I saw them it was the Interrupters kicking ass & then Tim Timebomb put on an amazing show. I think I only payed like 20$ at the door, can't beat that for rancid. If they come near you and the supporting bands are any good I'd say go you won't regret it.
