    I'm not sure if this group qualifies as a punk band because I've only heard one song by them. I also can't find any information on them. The band is 1,000 Mona Lisas.

    Not sure if any of this will help
    most not underground and most some you may have heard

    but sometimes its good to check out sites online and alot of punk bands have links to other maybe not so famous ones who in turn have links to other bands
    a great way to test and find some intresting music


    mostly listn to
    AFI
    Sex Pistols
    Ramons
    Dead Kennedys
    Black Flag
    Crass
    Oporation Ivy
    Rancid
    Tiger Army
    Misfits

    and lots others
    but thats more popular ones

    it's more like punk and rock but nomeansno's album 'wrong' is a classic.

    i gotta back keyth up.

    NoMeansNo is one of the BEST bands that no one has ever heard of. they are my favorite band still. one of the few punk bands that i can still listen to over and over again after all of these years.
    but they are more than a punkband really... they are the direction punkrock should have gone in. in my opinion.
    "Wrong" is there pinacle punk album.. "0+2=1" is a good one.
    sexmad is also good.


    also,, another great band that youve probably never heard of is "the lee harvy oswald band"
    it has members of the didgits.
    good luck finding a disc.

    i love sexmad. 'obsessed' and 'dad'....mmmmmm, yummy stuff!!! john wright was always such a big drumming influence on me.

    daarken, not really sure what type of punk bands you are looking for. 'Cows' aren't really that "1,2,3,4 1,2,3,4"(said really fast" type of punk. but they always played at the punk venues in Austin when i lived there. i recommend cunning stunts or sexy pee story. twisted stuff but raw as hell.

    I don't know if they're punk, but you might want to check out Fugazi.

    yes, please listen to fugazi, one of the groups that started punk. they have a cool sound, not blatantly punk and kind of lazy and spicy.

    Yes. fugazi. The ultimate in underground punk =)
    But some of the newer punky stuff Ive been getting into (and I dont know why..lol) is the pop-punk-rock type stuff such as:

    Finch
    The Used
    Thursday
    Saves the Day (some of their stuff..)

    and alot more..I cant remember them all now, because I had alot of stuff downloaded from alot of bands, then my harddrive died on me, and I cant remember them now =P

    Fugazi is really not that old... although Ian Mickay was in Minor Threat,, which was one of the early bands in the American punk movement... first punk band i ever got into actually.
    we called it Skate Rock then. hah!

    i still love minor threat, but i do believe i appreciate Fugazi more now. there sound is more mature.

    Gaawwd! i sound like a Geezer... im only 24!

    the harder side of things...

    american nightmare
    the hope conspiracy
    suicide file

    afi's pretty awesome too

    but if you want a band that will return and return and return to your stereo, the clash. ohhhhhhh how i love the clash

    edit:and don't forget the misfits...with danzig singing, not whoever the new guy is...there are so many great misfits songs....

    alright , I might be showing my age, ever heard of the Spermbirds? Very cool, skate punk band from Germany. That's all we listened to when we used to shred in Trier ('87-'89).

    (damn, I am gettin old) .... naaah.

    damn I just remembered another one, Token Entry.

    little more metal than punk, though.

    thats a negative on the poo. i still cruse the finished works section every now and then but i dont really post anymore.

    this is my new home... less drama here.

    i never got into Casualties. i did meet Dick Lukas a long time ago. he was touring with citizen fish at the time. i had a close friend who was his merc man.

    gonna see the casualties tonight probably...just wanna stand back in awe of their hair. best hair in any band i've seen. haha, and their music's fun to run around to, but in the end, it's all about the hair. and seeing how many ultra punks show up from the suburbs...

    shit, total chaos still plays...I saw them this summer at the warped tour, they were real displeased about being there...I guess it wasn't underground enough for them, heh. Anyway, the bassist sang a song about being pulled over and given a breathalyzer for the way he looked...and spent the night in jail...how unfair...just for drinking and driving...aww.. and the cops and the guys in jail made fun of the way he looked...aww. poor guy with a 3 foot pink mohawk and tons of metal shit in his face. every band wants a reason for the "fuck the police" song, pretty lame that's the only thing they could come up with. not like I'm a big fan of law enforcement myself, but that song was just lame. boo total chaos.
