I've only recently become a Minor Threat fan, always thought they sucked back in the day.
I only made the reference because of their straight-edge stance.rack: I always liked them.
I never got the whole "straight edge" thing, the first thing I wanted to do when I got a little independence was to drink beer and chase girls. I had some friends that got reallly in to straight edge, it just never appealed to me.
Hey atomic wedgie, i just saw this and thought of you. wondering what you thought of some bands they consider to be punk.
That's a swell list, after '85 or so I really drifted away from punk.
I never thought of The Dictators as punk, even though they played along side every punk band at the start. We used to call them the "Dicktasters", and I love the story about Jayne County kicking the this out of Handsome Dick manitoba after he called him a faggot. I do love his show on Underground Garage though.
I really liked that The Replacements made those people's list, and I especially love the "Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take The Trash Out" LP.
I also love The Pogues on that list, one of the greatest bands I've ever seen. In the late '80's/ early 90's I was in college studying for finals and a friend of mine stopped by and talked me into going with him to see The Pogues. Shane McGowan was left home to deal with his drinking problem, and Joe Strummer was filling in for him. I didn't know this until they walked on stage, and it was probably the best gig I've ever seen. A brilliant, brilliant night.
And post anything you want, punk rock should never be limited by any one person's opinion. Just cuz it doesn't fit in to my limited world view doesn't mean it's not viable to someone else.
JOE STRUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW. just wow
i had the same thoughts about the replacements. some of those bands listed, though, only wish they were punk!
i quickly scanned it and realized punk died in '99.
London Calling. Best. Album. Ever.Period.
