I some non punk bands I like: A Silver Mount Zion, Jack Oblivian (solo), Japanische Kampfhorspiele, Jawbreaker, Phil Ochs, The Kind of Jazz Music that Kills, King Khan and BBQ Show, King Khan and his Shins, Mahi Mahi, James Chance and the Contortions, The Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel, Northstar, Ozma, The Parvarim Refugeez, The Streets, The Pine Hill Haints, The Postal Service (but I ****ing hate Death Cab for Cutie), Public Image Ltd., Q and Not U, Television and of course I like Power Violence, Grind, Crust, HC, and most of the offshoots of punk rock.... I think I'm pretty well rounded musically. oops, I forgot the Good Life and Cursive.... great bands.

Rockabilly? I also like alot of alt-country music like Wilco, BR-549, and Steve Earl. Not shitty pop country like Garth Brooks and Brad Paisley. Hank Williams III rules too. I saw him last year and im going to see him again this week. He plays a lot of old-timey stuff but he also throws in punk like black flag.

I think The Cure are good,but i can't think for the life of me what the name of that song is. It's on the Crow film. Does anyone know the name of it?
#31
^ Cure song on the Crow is called "Burn".


I listen to alot of bands that aren't considered punk, but the songs that I like by them could be considered punk songs.

Such as....
CCR's "Sweet Hitchhiker" and "Prodigal Son"
Lords of the New Church's "New Church" and "Lil Boys Play With Dolls"
Blue Oyster Cult's "Transmaniacon MC" and "This Ain't The Summer Of Love"
Alice Cooper's "Under My Wheels" and "Elected"

I consider the bands I highlighted to have early material that is definitely punk.

BTW, big ups for not considering AFI punk.

Was interested in the Nikola Tesla thing.
Do you listen to the 80's hair metal band Tesla,
or does the spirit of Nikola Telsa come and sing the secrets of electromagnetics to you?
#35

#37

Wait, so DEVO isn't punk anymore?

Either way I enjoy Devo. (just not that commercial)
