    Punk Rock Reccomendations, and talk

    I've only had a superficial interest in punk music. Was wondering if anyone would like to make some recomendations new and old that I can listen to. Maybe some talk about it. Get me caught up on some things. Cause I am interested. It has always been last on the list. Not too many fans of punk rock in Florida. Mostly Heavy Metal, Death metal, Jimmy Buffet, and Rap and Hip Hop.

    To me. Listening to punk rock is like looking at a sketchbook of a painter. Rough around the edges, but has character, and if they are really good it's all the more kick ass. Fast and hard.

    There is a sound I like. This band was only able release a single, and almost had a good shot at the big times. Something happened though with sony records, and they split up. I liked the music though so I was disapointed. First heard their song "Another Day" on the grandmas boy album which actually had some music I liked overall. But the Twenty Twos single album has songs I really liked. They may not technically be punk, but they seem to be influenced by it a little.

    Is it possible to consider The Offspring punk rock? If so, that would be my hint. I love their lyrics and sound. Although they seem to be hated by fans of the more original punk for their journey to mainstreamia.

    Fugazi is/was really good, though they don't follow the "punk" sound necessarily. They take the punk ethos to the extreme with a DIY, anti-merchandise, keep the shows at $5 attitude. Real good music if you can get into it. Check out "End Hits" or "Red Medicine" if you like a well composed noisy album.

    Ha, first post on conceptart here!

    If you want fast and hard you cant go wrong with Broken Bones. Mid 80's UK punk thats pretty much the entire 80's scene at it's best, in my opinion.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fxVTuqa6-U

    Some of the members (Guitarist "Bones" in particular) come from another seminal UKHC band DISCHARGE who the whole sub category "D-Beat" is dedicated to.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDG0Q...eature=related

    For UK punk you cant miss Charged G.B.H either. Great lyrics.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qp8GieGdKNw

    And just a few more clips if you're still interested....

    I've always liked Stiff Little Fingers, an irish punk band from the late 70's. Great sound that has held up very well over the years. A lot of the music has a political bias which makes sense considering what was going on in Ireland at the time, but the music mostly remained hopeful.

    Xray Spex is another late 70's punk band. A fairly unique sound by punk standards, and the songs covered a whole range of bizarre subjects, a lot of them being fairly anti consumer.

    For more recent punk I love the Distillers. Brody Dalle was originally from Australia and her voice is just rough and raw and beautiful.

    ooooh, some first rate quality classics:

    The Ramones - any of the first 4 albums (later stuff is still good, but those first four are solid)

    Misfits - anything with Danzig still involved (not their "rebirth" from the past 10 years)

    The Clash - London Calling is one of my top five all time albums of any genre, but it's also their step away from punk so it maybe isn't as suitable as the self titled.

    Circle Jerks - Group Sex (oh shit, I want to go put this on right now actually)


    X - Los Angeles

    Dead Kennedys
    - Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, and Plastic Surgery Disasters are all good times

    The Germs - GI

    Bad Brains - self titled or Black Dots, ooooh man...


    Black Flag - Damaged

    Radio Birdman - Radios Appear is my favorite, but you can't go far wrong

    The Jam - most any I guess, earlier is best though

    The Wipers - Youth of America, It This Real?

    Teengenerate - Get Action


    The Mummies - anything and everything, 4 times!


    though those last three are definitely stepping away from "essential classic" and into "personal favorite", so I'll cap it here

    Fear- "The Record" is all right, if you like saxophones .

    Man, Dave really seems to know his punk. Generation X (and of course The Sex Pistols) from the UK. Sid Vicious version of "My Way" is my favorite for that song.

    Iggy Pop= the Proto-Punk (Well Tom Waits 4 already mentioned The Stooges)

    I haven't heard "Know Your Rights" by the Clash (from Combat Rock) on the radio in like 20 years. (probably because it strikes way too close to home these days).

    If you are going to check out post punk stuff like the Talking Heads then don't forget "Goon Squad" by Elvis Costello and Oingo Boingo stuff like "Only A Lad" which are pretty aggro songs.

    and Sick of It All... Because I'm from NY and it's mandatory though they're a generation behind most of the good originators.

    Happy stage diving.

    Go rent The Filth and the Fury. It's probably the best documentary anyone will ever make, on any subject. Good job Julien

    The other recommendations here are all golden. Man, I haven't listened to Minor Threat in half an age. All my CDs from that era were pretty well scratched to shit by the time the ipod came out.

    haven't seen that but I'll check it out. This does remind me though, Decline of Western Civilization 1 is absolutely essential for anyone with an interest in LA punk. Also, though not documentaries, so are Suburbia (the one from the 80s) and Repo Man. Holy god do I love Repo Man, and what a great soundtrack

    oh shit, and End of the Century is mandatory for anyone who's ever liked the Ramones.

    And the Repo Man soundtrack reminds me of Suicidal Tendencies and Burning Sensations.

    "Terminal Tower" is a good collection of Pere Ubu's proto-punkier B sides and singles.

    The new Anti Flag record "Bright Lights of America" is really good, it's actually quite musical and less "angry vegetarians shouting about politics over generic punk".
