Jesus was in a punk band called the Prophets of Jerusalem

I'd say they were the first.

Jesus on Vocals and Guitars
Muhammad on Bass
and Moses on Drums

Rock on. \m/ \m/
The Ramones. While bands like The Stooges and Velvet Underground were obvious influences on early punk, it's pretty hard to call them actual "punk bands".

a lot of bands in the mid-late 60's diplayed a great deal of traits that would become punk.
the who, led zeppelin et al. in many ways can be considered (and are often labelled: Proto-Punk.)
however, i would consider the first band to display the whole punk package; even if the term hadn't been invented is the stooges.
i flew beyond the sun before it was time
the ramones ftw

The Who, The Kinks, and The Rolling Stones are all pretty influential; powerchords, 'attitude', excessive volume. However, the fact that these bands also had intelligent songwriting (especially The Who and The Kinks), changed their sound and direction a lot (The Who and The Stones) and were just generally good seems to suggest that they dont really have a lot to do with punk. /trolling

I'm going to go with the Stooges.
