I don't think it's terrible for a Rolling Stones list. I mean just think about their target audience for a second.
I'm an asshole.
#8
Plus they included Entertainment!, so I'm happy.

When I was younger I thought Rolling Stone was like a magazine that The Rolling Stones started or something.

I don't even know who the target audience of Rolling Stone is. Music industry folks?

Sexual deviants that buy into the liberal agenda?

Well it's all cause Green Day on facebook and stuff posted "Hey go vote for us" so their fans did, so more of their fans knew about it. I'm sure if they didn't post that they wouldn't be on there, but I am happy with the rest of the list. And may I add that maybe if it was a list of most influential POP-PUNK bands they would be up there, 'cause they really did pioneer it into the mainstream in the early days. And Ramones really are a pop-punk band, I mean they spent their careers trying to be the biggest thing out there but they just couldn't do it haha.

Can you explain to me how the Ramones tried to be the biggest thing out there? Also, there are many pop punk bands that are better than GD, MxPx, Hextalls, and The Teenage BottleRockets to name a few. I'm not a Green Day hater or anything, but there's many better pop punk band.

any real punk doesn't need a list to tell them the ramones are the best. Real punks don't care anyway.

Ya don't know a lot about the Ramones if ya don't know that they wanted to hit it big. If the Phil Spector stuff, "We Want the Airwaves," and the uncharacteristically almost-conventional-contemporary-radio-pop-rock songs scattered throughout most of their albums aren't enough evidence for ya, the members have always been explicit about their desire to be more than a kvlt band.

Ya really think MxPx are better than Green Day? That's weird. Not like I'm offended. Also they're called Teenage Bottlerocket. I don't like them at all but at least I know their name.


Not gonna lie, wasn't sure what I was talking about there, but yes, I do like MxPx more than Green Day. And I knew about the Ramones stuff, but I failed to recognize it. It is Teenage Bottlerocket, I'm not really a fan either, but of the few songs I've heard, I like them more than Green Day.

MxPx? Teenage Bottlerocket? .... no.

Buzzcocks, Descendents, The Jam, Screeching Weasel, The Queers ... some better choices for ya.
#25
In terms of "mainstream" success, yeah I'll buy GD as #1. Never thought I'd see them on the same list as The Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and Bad Brains though.

Nice to see Social D get some props.

I'm pretty sure there's a joke here that's going over my head.

Anyways, The Gooningtons' album is the best and most important pop punk record since My Brain Hurts!

He was probably confused on account of he didn't realize Negroes could be punk. It's a common misconception.

This thread reminded me of how much of an arrogant jerkface ManicRepression is. Way to keep the bar low man.

I think Green Day, Good Charlotte, and Simple Plan are the three greatest punk bands ever, but I would never be able to choose which one is best out of the three. It would just be impossible.

Likely He Tried To Type His Post In All Caps But UG Automatically Rewrites Your Post To Have Every Word Capitalized Instead Of Every Letter. Nice Way To Come Off As An Arrogant Prick While Proving Your Own Inexperience At Posting On The UG Forums.

Ok well now I'm confused because UG is fully capitalised when it should be Ug.

The hell?
