Well I really want to get into some early classic punk, but I dont know where to start. So I need some suggestions for the old school 70s punk i.e. sex pistols, ramones, stooges.

What are some good albums that are pretty representative of the bands? Id appreciate anything, recommendations, opinions.. other bands to check out. whatever

and move this is you want, but i figured that classic 70s punk would be better here than pop punk emo, but whatever.

Thanks for the ideas.
