Rolling Stone have conducted a poll to find the best punk rock bands of all time, with Green Day coming out on top.
The magazine appear to feel the need to stress that Green Day likely won because:
"Green Day Authority and the band's official site at GreenDay.com both [posted] the link and asking fans to vote for Green Day which gave the group a significant boost in the final tally."
Which makes sense, really - Green Day might be good, but when you see the full list, you might disagree that they're better than certain other names on the list.
And what about other classics like Minor Threat, Fugazi, New York Dolls, The Cramps, Wire, Circle Jerks, The Buzzcocks, Patti Smith, Husker Du
So here it is.
