Ive always been a big classic rock/jam band/ grunge fan, but i also like a few punk bands.

dead kennedys, black flag, fugazi, and ummm i guess early slightly stoopid are really the only punk bands i listen to.

i know theres a wealth of good punk bands im not tapping into so i come to ask for some recomendations.

My friend gave me a d.r.i. album and i wasnt to fond of them just to let yah know.

If you like grunge alot, you'll probably like 80's Hardcore, and Street Punk/Oi

Here are some bands I like alot

Lower Class Brats
Bad Brains
Circle Jerks
The Sainte Catherines
Dead Kennedys
The Forgotten
The Virus
Cheap Sex
Complete Control
Total Chaos
A Global Threat
Lars Fredreckson & The Bastards
Bikini Kill
Babes In Toyland
(charged) G.B.H.
Cockney Rejects
Dayglo Abortions
Wednesday Night Heroes
The Casualties
The Exploited

these are some of the better punk bands (imo)
and I am a huge fan of grunge music too, and I love these bands.
Alot of these bands influenced alot of the bands in the grunge scene (especially the hardcore bands)

Listen to Rancid.
Do it.

You COULD listen to rancid... but they're f*cking sh*t.

If you check the stickied list of punk and ska bands, you'll find some greatly superior alternatives.

Would you guys be obliged if I made an official Recommendation thread? I have an idea of how it could be really organized and helpful. And hopefully it'd cut back on these types of threads.
