    I vote for the Clash. They were very avant garde, had more tricks up their sleeves than your average "rattle and hum" punk band.

    Big fan of the others too - the Pistols were meant as a finger in the eye of authority, the Pogues were classic Irish "bite me" satire, and the Ramones were possibly the most enjoyable sound wise because not everything was a nasty rant.

    The Clash, only just though.

    On the plus side. The last time I decorated the house I had the Ramones & the Buzzcocks playing on the stereo on a loop. 3 rooms, 2 coats - a day and a bit.

    Thanks, Joey. RIP.

    It may be a generational thing, but I was never able to fully click with neo/GenY-punk, like Green Day or the Living End. I *like* them for what they are, but it's just not the same.

    John Lydon is right I think - punk, as it was in its short-burst original form, is dead and has been dead for some time.

    Agreed. They are successors to a throne that never quite was - punk died before it was born.

    Godspeed you! black emperor are closer by far to the original idea than, say, Green Day.

    Johnny's okay, but here in the UK he advertises butter. Iggy's even worse - he's doing car insurance.

    Definitely. Pop-punk should have never came to be a genre. Maybe a novelty album or two could have been dedicated to it.

    Agreed. A Pistols singalong - where they cover The Beach Boys and Boney-M numbers.

    Now I think about it, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle was a bit like that.

    I'm a big fan of western swing and country punk, like Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, and the Burnettes.

    But isn't that just a judgment based on categorization and not on the music? Like, if I countered that Green Day was power pop, would you change your opinion on them? I enjoy them a lot, but never had any illusion that they were punk. I don't think they do, either. The sound may be approximately the same, but the approach is not at all.
