If I had to pick another time to live in it would be New York in the 70's. So many great bands. This was punk rock. This was New York.

The Talking Heads
Television
The New York Dolls
Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers
The Voidiods
Blondie
Patti Smith
The Dictators
The Stooges

Any good bands that I should know about?

The Stooges were not New York.

The Ramones
The Neon Boys
The Velvet Underground - it's revisionism to put them in the same category, but hey, the same is true for the Dolls
Wayne County & the Electric Chairs - cool gimmick and a couple of good tunes
Suicide
Dead Boys

The Feelies - from New Jersey but had affinities w/ NY punk/new wave
Marie et les Garçons - sorta France's ambassadors to NY punk.

You hit the high points. You might wanna expand into the under-overhyped Cleveland scene of the '70s. Or, you know, you could live in the 21st century.

Btw I don't think the Classic Rock forum cares about this stuff. Best take it to the punk forum where all the people that used to care about this stuff are.

Like Rocket From The Tombs. David Thomas is awesome. I love Pere Ubu but that was more the 80's.

Eh, Pere Ubu's first and most acclaimed 2 albums were in the '70s.

You dig The Electric Eels? They're my fave.
