It seems more to me that you're bugged by the fact that more people in this thread are listing some of the better-known punk acts (The Clash, the Ramones, the Sex Pistols) than other lesser-known punk, making them not-true-punk-fans and therefore making them incapable of contributing to a punk discussion.

If that's the case, well, I'll just stick to my Radiohead and Pink Floyd threads.
i'll say it again. i am bugged by the fact that people are saying they like punk rock, yet when actual discussion threads are posted, they're nowhere to be found. i don't care about punk rock credentials or any of that crap (i'm posting at a u2 board under a nine inch nails avatar, for christ's sake). it's being open to actually having a discussion, because i don't see that happening. face it, this isn't a discussion. this is a bunch of lists, mainly based around what some bullshit music magazine tells us we're supposed to like as music fans, or the gospel according to some dumb rock star. lists like that are a lot easier than taking the time to listen to a ducky boys song, if you've never heard the band, and then talking about it. watching threads like this play out the way they do feeds my suspicion that the majority of the people at this site with ramones tshirts ran out to hot topic to buy them with the sole aim of attracting bono's attention so he'd pull them up on stage to dance.

seeing as you're the person who argued that bedouin soundclash's cover of the guns of brixton sucked because of the ska/dub style, yes, you probably should stick to your pink floyd and radiohead threads.

Generalisation.

Oh-ho! Good one! Never mind that you know I know that The Clash themselves were directly influenced by reggae, and we cleared this up in the other thread.




If you're getting upset over the lists, did you not see the title of this thread? "Your Favourite Punk Song." Obviously, that would lead to people listing, gasp, their favourite punk songs. Even the first post in this thread set the tone for "list thread." If you want to have intelligent conversation on the punk genre in general, perhaps you should create a thread dedicated to discussion entirely and make that very explicit in your post.

This has nothing to do with Bedouin Soundclash, but I was just reminded of how much I dislike Dropkick Murphys' version of Guns of Brixton. Holy God i hate it. Not as bad as Social D's Death or Glory, though. But yeah, DKM and Career Opportunities is a good thing. I just despise their Guns of Brixton.

And as far as Social D's Death or GLory... I really, REALLY wanted to like it. I heard part of it on the radio one day and thought it sounded okay. Then I heard the whole thing. It makes me weep.

yeah, they're admitted generalizations. trust me, i'd love for folks here to prove me wrong.

bedouin soundclash - yeah, that was a cheap shot and totally out of place.

list threads can't be discussions? sorry, i didn't see that in the FAQ. must have been some other site where i thought the sole purpose of message board threads were for discussion. with the number of game and chat threads here, i should have seen that coming. and you clearly missed my point about those explicit discussion threads falling flat on their faces. i started a thread comparing the street dogs video for "back to the world" to green day's "wake me up when september ends" videos, and the only responses i got were "gReEn dAy rOx1!!!" granted, i know 99% of the people on this site probably have never heard of the street dogs, but i know i provided a link to the video in an attempt to stimulate discussion. instead, i got 5 pages of drivel and was probably compelled to go off on my "i hate anti-flag" rant.

the singles collection version with mike? yeah, that blows goats. i've seen them cover it live with al (oh noes, my street cred went out the window because i didn't see them in '96) a couple times, and while i think it sucked last year, it sounded pretty good last weekend.

i tried, too. i listened to the song 4 or 5 times in a row. it just hurts.

only one hero :snob:


hey, i made a stupid mistake the other day. i definitely thought dkm's "10 years of service" was "alternative ulster". opening chord sounds quite similar (and then further along on the dkm album, you've got "going strong" and that similar damn chord again).

Has anyone ever heard that Mission of Burma song I listed?

Because that is one awesome song.

Hell, IWB, do you like Mission of Burma? They're from down your area, aren't they?

great contribution, carrieluvv. that really added to the actual debate about the music that IWB was having with everyone, albeit touching on getting cranky, as all involved were.

i'm going to build a mark shrine for kimmie with candles and a beach sunset backdrop.


the only punk i kind of know is that group from adelaide. what's their name? crap. anyway, they're very pop-punk anyway, so they dont count.

I am the first to admit I don't know a damn thing about punk. Though back in the day when my music taste was crappy I was into Pennywise and NOFX and all that warped tour stuff before it turned all blink182ish, it was cheap and fun. Regardless I don't know much of its origins yada yada yada I never have liked the Ramones except for maybe "I wanna live my life" and definitely can't stand the Sex Pistols [].
I think The Clash is a bit more popular around here is cause at least to my ears they're more interesting, they definitely have more funk to them and don't sound as repetitive in sound and they're lyrics are more interesting to me.

Misfits, Subhumans, Fugazi, Television, MC5, Operation Ivy...are bands I like which I think fall under the "punk" category but then again early Elvis Costello sounds punk to me.

For any spanish speaking Clash fans I suggest you download Los Fabulosos Cadillacs' fantastic cover "Revolution Rock".
