Marquee Moon isn't exactly punk but certainly deserves a nod
they're like Velvet Underground, not exactly punk, but there isn't a punk band that doesn't owe them a shoutout

I mean the Ramones changed a lot of shit, I definitely think they went way too pop way too fast but those dudes pretty much set the template for East Coast punk, at least in terms of aesthetics

He was at show @ starland 7 years ago.. venue close by me then did an interview later that night. I still dunno the dude name, but he was a Ramone or w.e.. don't care. In the interview he had later that night, this nigga was like even the blacks came out tonight and the interviewer was like "Hey..." Then he replied "We had our break downs through out the years". It came of as racist to me so fuck these niggaz, I was pretty young to really pay attention to which member he was, but I remember him meeting everyone and saying that shit later on the college radio station.

Don't badmind me.

.... weird. anyways, since this is the only real punk thread on here. can we shift to Hypebeast's article that came out Friday? It's fucking garbage. Elijah Watson(editor that wrote it) seems to have no idea what he is talking about. Some people on the commenters went in on the article including me...

Hip Hop has always exhibited punk characteristics. The nature of punk is all built around not having the ease of accessibility to create music but do it away. When bands were being scouted by major labels in the mid 60's, punkers would say "Fuck it, I can barely play but my friends and I can make some songs and play at a house for people." Hip Hop had similar roots. No access to instruments and proper sound equipment led to the using of old records on their player to create new songs. That DIY element all along with being provocative and progressive in lyrics is the essential punk element.

The two genres follow almost parallel timelines. Punk just happend to be from white kids who grew up on rock and folk music, and hip-hop from innercity black kids who grew up with funk and soul. But the rise of the two have always been the fuck the system attitudes that both share that appeals to their audiences.

yeah that article was pretty stupid, there's a lot of dudes doing "Punk-Rap" now but they only talked about the connection between the two genres in the most superficial manner possible

Comadre. Not punk in the traditional sense, but inspired by and entirely awesome.

Always down for late '80s - mid '90s emo (ie. Embrace, Rites of Spring, Indian Summer, Amber Inn) and '80s hc/thrash (ie. Dayglo, GAUZE, Minor Threat, GISM, etc.). It would be very hard for me to pick a 'greatest' though.

Way too many sick fucking bands to have just one to be considered the greatest punk band ever. Punk is the greatest genre/culture ever. Personal favorites would be bad brains, the casualties, black flag, minor threat etc.
