So, Im really more of a hard rocker than a punk, but Ive always listened to a little old school punk stuff (ramones, the clash), but recently I started listening to the sex pistols and I really liked them. The problem really is that every one of their albums has only a few songs that arent on the others, so are there any other good bands who sound really similar?

Is it possible that you're only buying greatest hits albums? If you get regular albums you'll end up getting more material.

I have Never Mind The Bullocks Heres The Sex Pistols and all the other sex pistols Ive seen have maybe only three songs that werent on there. Why, do you know any with a lot of differant stuff on it?

Are as far as The Sex Pistols go theres not much out there. For bands like The Ramones and The Clash there's tons.

No matter what anybody says the new album is really good. It's different, but definately worth they buy.

Buzzcocks are definately worth a listen. I've heard a few Johnny Thunders and the heartbreakers songs, they are kind of similar. Steve owes a lot of his guitar style to Johnny Thunders, so definately get a NY Dolls album.
See if you can get your hands on "the punk rock movie" it has a lot of performances from a lot of punk groups, it'll definately give you some ideas
You could also try going to the roots of the sex pistols, which includes reggae, uk glam, rockabilly, and all that. For uk glam try getting Mott the Hoople, maybe some of bowies earlier stuff. Pretty much any reggae, and you could branch rockabilly into psychobilly, but get some Eddy Cochran, sid loved him.

Also sid has an album with 2 titles (sid sings / vicious: too fast to live) that is mostly pistols stuff and coveres but is pretty good.

But definately get something by the slits, buzzcocks, the damned, new york dolls, probably the dead boys as well.

I don't like straight edge because it's part of Hardcore, and I don't like Hardcore because, aside from the terrible music, the kids are often very homophobic.

Expand your horizons. Bands like Bad Brains might turn you on. If it's not melodic enough and you need that nihilistic sneer, try late 80's/early 90's Seattle stuff like Mudhoney.
#20
If you like the Pistols then check out The Adolescents (their first album). Great punk band, and Tony sounded a bit like J. Rotten.
#21
Also, look for P.I.L. (Public Image LTD), the band that Rotten found after the Pistols.
"That What Is Not" is a really good album.
Something interesting should be written here....

Very early NOFX has a very Pistols feel to it, albums like Maximum RocknRoll, Liberal Animation, and Heavy Petting Zoo.
#23
Very Early NOFX has a crappy feel to it and sounds nothing like the Pistols.

The only L.A. bands that did the Chuck Berry/ Keith Richards/Johnny Thunders-esque pentatonic punk like the Pistols did, was X and the Berlin Brats.
The Brats sound alot more like The Rolling Stones, however.

If the pentatonics is what you're after, there's always the Damned's "Neat, Neat, Neat" and Eddie and The Hot Rods songs "Teenage Depression" and their cover of "Get Out Of Denver".
Hot Rods song "Quit This Town" is also really good.

Here's a Portland, Oregon band called Count Vertigo that I think you will REALLY like.
The song "X Patriots" uses the intro to "God Save The Queen" throughout the song and the lyrics are great.

You might also wanna check out some Cockney Rejects stuff.
The songs "Greatest Cockney Ripoff", "Teenage Fantasy", "On The Run" and "Power And The Glory" all contain elements that they ripped off from the Sex Pistols and the Professionals (Steve and Paul's band after the Sex Pistols).

I listened to the tracks on that piece of sh*t before you were born, bucket boy.

It was sh*te then and it's sh*te now.
And it doesn't sound anything like the Sex Pistols.

Maybe you should take the bucket off your head.
It's affecting your hearing.

Yeah that really got me. I should definitely remove my Bucket in the presence of he who knows exactly what everything sounds like such that no one else can have a different opinion.

Oh, and also, Maximum RocknRoll came out in 1992, which would be, oh, I don't know, two years after I was born. So I'm glad you have a time machine.

Now I get to make fun of you for being stupid.
This will be fun...

Some of the tracks on Maximum Rock And Roll, such as "Mom's Rule", "On My Mind", "Dain Bramage", "Sh*tting Bricks" and a few others, were from their "So What If We're on Mystic" EP, which was released in 1986.

That's 4 years before you were born, genius.

In fact, some of the tracks were written in 1984, which is 6 before you were born.

I recall that me and some of my friends listened to the Mystic EP at a record store when it came out and we laughed our a$$es off at what pathetic Descendents wanna-bes Fat Mike and his crew of losers were.

Early NOFX sounds like: Descendents, NOT the Sex Pistols.
Although that's not really fair to the Descendents, because they never really sucked like NOFX did/do.

Maybe you should stick to listening to crap like Buckethead and leave the punk to those of us who know what we're talking about.

I didn't like the Maximum RocknRoll that much, i think Pimp up the volum is better.
And Sex Pistols with Never mind the Bollocks, nothing can compare.

Isn't really anything that sounds like Sex Pistols, voice is kinda distinctive. They had big influence on bands that came later though so just go for 77-82 stuff. NYDs might be one of their influences, but they don't sound much like them at all, really.
