Official Punk thread!

I know that you could argue there's an Alternative Rock thread for this, but I think that this genre's evolved enough to be able to have its own thread.

...I'm not being a scrape, shut up.

Discuss Punk music here, whether it's the melodic guitars of pop-punk/emo, the extreme leaviness of hardcore punk or just plain, simple punk rock.

...Just look at the other genre threads if you want this in more detail, I cba to type it out.

And since nu-metal isn't allowed in the metal thread and post-grunge isn't allowed in the Alt. Rock thread...I'm going to be rebellious and say any genre related to punk is allowed here.

Anyway, I'm not really into much punk, but I have to say my favorite punk subgenres are centered around pop-punk, bands like Sum 41, Blink-182 and The Offspring.

That's called Pop Punk.

Anyways, favorite punk rock artists.

Sex Pistols will always remain up there.
Refused are fucking dead, but are fucking amazing.
MC5 and The Stooges are kinda the ones that issued in the age of punk, who I love listening to.

As for pop punk, I liked Brand New's first album which was pop punkish. And Say Anything is probably my most favorite of the pop punk genre. Not too into Blink 182, but I was a little more into Yellowcard back in the day.

Can't remember anymore atm.

I like some hardcore.

Minor Threat, The Exploited, Bad Brains, Danzig era Misfits, Discharge, etc.

Don't quite like a lot of the "original" punk from the 70's I've heard, to be honest... the Ramones, the Clash, etc, sure, but not a lot of it.

So 1991
Refused are fucking dead, but are fucking amazing.

This. Some of my favorite punk and post-harcore bands include:
Husker Du
AFI
Hot Water Music
Les Savy Fav
Seaweed
Refused
Avail
Bad Religion
Pain
Superchunk (They're classified as indie, but they sound punk pop for most of their career to me)
probably a lot of others I can't think of at the moment.

I prefer punk on a song for song basis though and have found a lot of the newer bands like rise against, anti-flag and strike anywhere to be too preachy.

Bad Religion is pretty good they sound alot like Anti-Flag
 

Patches-Kun

Dawn Patrol
The only punk bands I listen to are The Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash, and Dead Kennedys. It makes up a very small percentage of my music library.

There was actually an interview with Daryl from Bad Brains where he said he doesn't quite describe Bad Brains as hardcore. Nice little piece of history

Personally I put punk and hardcore together most of the time. The two really go hand in hand and and the lines can get blurred, especially when listening to early bands like Black Flag.

New York Hardcore is unquestionably hardcore. I saw Agnostic Front touring for the 25th Anniversary of Victim in Pain, not too many punks. Me and them stayed out of the pit while the dingbat metal heads tore it up.
