Finally a musical topic I can relate to. I'm really torn on a video to post but since no one mentioned the Dead Boys check this out.
Dead Boys - Sonic Reducer - Live CBGB (1977) - YouTube
I feel better already now that I'm out of the punk closet. I may even put my cd's out where people can see them now.

Lots of good punk music out there to choose from. Here's a couple videos from a band you don't often hear about - X. They still tour from time to time.

Was not familiar with them before but thanks for the intro. They really kick some a$$. So, how cool was CBGB's back in the day? So much happened in that club.

In my neck of the woods (DC), the 9:30 Club was the big thing in the punk and alternative music scene. I'm way too old for that place now. Dream about it sometimes though.

My favorite live X story.... a small club, the Bacchannal, in San Diego in the early 80's... The band had gone down to Tijuana to party that day and Exene had kept the party going. But she could still perform a great show despite being totally smashed. The concert ended when she passed out and almost landed in the crowd right in front of her, Dave Alvin and John Doe had fast reactions and grabbed the back of her jeans before she face planted.

Saw them open for Warren Zevon a few years later . Exene was pregnant, sober, and super grumpy... I've seen them live at least 20 times and that was the lowest energy worst show.. having seen her far more times drunk... she's a better performer when she's drunk.

I thought of this song that's not quite punk but does embody the rebellious spirit of punk. Funny thing - when I first pulled it up it was preceded by a political ad from one of the top two right now. Doesn't really matter who. Somehow I don't think White Zombie is a major supporter of either party nor would either party want their endorsement!! Perhaps more reason to respect them...
