Not really into punk, but I'd say the Ramones are my favorite punk group.

This thread would not be complete without some Sex Pistols. Apologies in advance to 73ss454 and Alan, my favorite Brit round these parts ;-)

No future.....



BTW, this song is no good unless the volume is turned up to 11.

Not sure if it counts as real punk; but, one of my all time favorites is Nena's 99 Luftballons:

Here's one music thread that I cannot contribute to. Sorry to say, but I guess I am such a geezer before my time that listening to this type of music gets me too agitated. And I really do not want my heart to race, my BP to increase because of music (though if by something else, it may be OK though). Could it be why this is called punk music?

Tell you the truth, I may be so different than most people. I listen to music enjoyed by people in their 70s when I was only 20. So, if, as people age their music keeps getting more sedentary, then by now I should be listening to music enjoyed by people in their 100s.

Now, do centenarians even listen to music? Probably not. So, I guess it will not be long until I become musicless.

i played bass for a couple punk bands in the early 80's.
my favorite punk band is the meatmen. first heard them in the early 80's & still listen to them today.

The Meatmen - We're the Meatmen and You Suck! - YouTube


that said, i am more of a black metal fan & have enjoyed listening to king diamond / mercyful fate since 1983.

Mercyful Fate - Thirteen Invitations (HQ) - YouTube


(i can't figure out how to show the youtube films directly in this post, similar to the post above mine.)

Interesting thing about the Punk movement was the difference between how it was expressed in NYC vs London. London - more angst against social intuitions. NYC - more rebellion expressed in poetry - kinda like how Woodie Guthrie did it decades before. The thin punk line I guess. Love ‘em both though. Particularly this lady.

Duh, Ms.G and I were at the Club Med in St George Bermuda. in the 80's we met a nice young couple from England, John Lydon was his name. We had no clue who he was even though we had dinner and drinks we them a couple of times. The younger CM'ers seem to know who he was, but we never inquired, because we were having fun with them. It wasn't until we got back to the states and I asked a 20 something friend. That is as close as I ever came to punk. I should have know John had orange hair.

Love this thread...
As far as NYC vs London... there was also the LA and SF influences. X from LA, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Zeros...

And some of the groups that came out of that movement into the more punk tinged rockabilly/roots rock: Blasters, Los Lobos, Rank and File, etc.

Can you tell I grew up in Southern CA was a teen in the late 70's? and hit the club scene in the very early 80's.... Saw my fair share of mosh pits.
