Learning how to play your guitar expertly does not make you create interesting music... authentic emotion and creativity makes more interesting music. I could provide examples, but think of how many hours some artists spend writing music and they suck, the good thing about punk is that it deviated completely and blew up so fast because it was refreshing to have something to say and deliver it naturally. I think that whole punk ethic was valuable to music since it inspired grunge, riot grrrl and that late 80's/90's alternative scene to make music that wasn't watered down and sounded live... and also to be abrasive but in a sense that you weren't forcing it.

I don't disagree...there is a reason I don't usually listen to technical metal. Now that I think about it a little more, I shouldn't have said that the way I did. Its not the necessarily the emotion:talent ratio that I don't like, its more the emotions they are expressing. Even that probably isn't true...hmmm. I guess what it all boils down to is that I don't enjoy punk music. I don't really know why but it just doesn't appeal to me.

My appologies for not expressing what I wanted to say...I just don't really know how to say it. I love all kinds of music from Hip Hop to Indie Rock to Grunge to Prog for all different reasons but I just can't get into Punk music.

I think I knew what you were getting at, it's challenging for me to form sentences I feel like I want to say lol, reading back what I wrote I thought about groups like Broadcast who spend a long time perfecting certain sounds and they are really good too. Punk is just very "it is what it is" kind of music, so it appeals to certain people who can resonate with that I guess. Maybe you'd like post punk (:

King of Punk; Justin Bieber.

I kid, I kid.


You can't go wrong with The Ramones. Punk is such a tricky genre now to relate bands with. I could say Blink-182 but it would fit on other different categories (weird...) Same goes for Green Day and The Misfits, these days people put them in different genres. Though I see them fully as Punk whereas others would say post punk or rock punk and it's confusing.

I really like this post and agree! Punk has had a huge influence on music as a whole.

Punk was also the first time that Women had an equal opportunity to express themselves and be apart of the scene dress the same as the boys and not just be a sex object. It was really the first time That girls could get up on stage perform and be just as ugly and smelly as the boys and no one cared. It also made music accessible to everyone, you didn't need a record label and you didn't need studio musicians and 4 writers. You just got up on stage played as best as you could and said what you wanted to.

bad religion
H2O
Pennywise
dropkick murphys (if you like irish punk)

there are still good punk bands, punk just isn't as popular as it once was. to be honest, none of the newer punk bands can really match the older bands like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols, but they are still pretty good. you really have to search to find good bands, but they are out there.

YES. anti-flag, rise against (older stuff), no use for a name (again, older stuff), h2o, pennywise, sex pistols

i'm also into hardcore, if you are interested in that sort of thing.
Geeze everyone loves anti-flag, rise against I guess I just suck. no use for a name was on phat records right can't really say I ever heard of them but I know of them. h2o classic, pennywise cool, sex pistols will always have a soft spot in my heart but the Ramones came first. I am also into hardcore.



the thing with rise against is, their newer stuff sucks really bad. it's not even punk anymore. their first two albums are really all i listen to. their first album (the unraveling) had a lot of really good punk songs, and also some songs with more of a hardcore sound to them. their second album (revolutions per minute) also had some good songs, although their sound did change a bit. it was really all downhill since that album. i wouldn't say they sold out, because the message is still there, their sound just changed in a really unfavorable manner.

i also really like the Ramones.

what hardcore bands are you into? wisdom in chains and backtrack are probably my two favorite hardcore bands.

I saw Richie Ramone three nights ago it was awesome! Played a bunch of Ramones songs and stuff off his solo album it was a blast.

As for hardcore I've been listening to a lot of Madball, Skarhead, Agnostic Front, Crowd Deterrent... so mainly DMS bands fuck.

Check out Aggressive Response out of Albany they kick ass.

Madball and Agnostic Front are both great, i will check out Aggressive Response. i was actually there mainly because wisdom in chains were playing that night, but i was at a cro-mags show in December if you listen to them at all.

cro-mags are awesome man, I dunno why my crew didn't go to that show? what day was that? Another question do you know if the Cro-Magnons ( Hiroto Kōmoto, Masatoshi Mashima previously of The Blue Hearts and The High-Lows) got their name from them at all? I know it's also word for like early humans and stuff but I always thought that was an interesting coincidence even if the two bands aren't alike at all.

Also check out, Leftover crack, star fucking hipsters, The Virus, The Casualties, Defiance, A Global Threat, Clit 45, Sham 69, Funeral Dress, Who killed spikey jacket, and bad engrish, Rancid, or any band on Joe Pogo records.

Japanese Punk bands to Check out, Extinct Government, Tom and The Boot Boys, Hazard, Forward, The Discocks, SA (Samurai Attack), Radiots, and pretty much any bands on Pogo 77, also check out some of the earlier Japanese Punk stuff like GISM, and The Stalin, Cobra, The Blue Hearts, and the The Roosters.

Might as well include Demerit from China on list as well they rule.

You'll find at least one band you'll like on this list I promise. Fair warning none of the Japanese bands are VK.
