Who do you think the best punk guitarist is? and what band is he/she in? I think Chris Flippin from Lagwagon is pretty good but I'm sure there are other who are better. So whats your opinion?

He certainly isn't bad.

I always thought James Lynch from Dropkick Murphys was alright, I never really stop to think about it.

I'm going to be a smart ass and say Jeff Hannemen, he may play in slayer but hes a hardcore punk fan so he must play a lot of punk, and as we all know he's a great guitarist

this thread should be titled, the best of the worst...


Ill bet you couldnt outplay East Bay Ray (Dead Kennedys or Greg Ginn (Black Flag) who along with Mick Jones (the Clash) get my vote for bust punk guitarists.

How can you argue a punk guitarist like Mick Jones is bad?

He practically revolutionized music with The Clash in the UK.


If you're putting down Deryk Whibley however, go right ahead.

there are no "good" guitarists in punk music, its all just misplaced rage, no real musicianship involved.

you obviously dont listen to enough punk music to know that there are in fact some very good guitarists in punk music, and also not all punk music is angry (though admittedly most real punk is)

'greenday is so punk'

and i was all
omgelitist
'fawkofffffffffff'
and punched her in the face.
cause i can do that
cause I know more about punk rock and stuff
#25
most punk guitarists dont use their skill much though so its hard to really say

Very true and as to Dave Baksh he is a good guitarist but i dont think you could count him as punk even though he was in a punk band, it doesnt seem his style really.

EXACTLY.

"Good punk guitarist" is an oxymoron.

Fugazi started as a trio with Ian on guitar and vocals. They later added Guy to the line up. Originally Guy was just a singer, and Ian handled all the guitar work. Ian Mackaye shared guitar duties with Guy Piciotto after a while.

Do your homework young pup.
