Well I listened to Madness and the Specials when I was a kid, and some Clash stuff too.


But as in getting properly into punk, I think Subhumans live in a dive album was the first to get me really into it.

If it wasn't for Green Day, I wouldn't listen to any of the bands I do now. The Ramones are the first punk band I got into.

The Bread Kennedys.


Same. I really liked there song on Tony Hawk's American Wasteland so I decided to get an album. There were a lot of really good bands on that just the covers where so god damn terrible.

I think that it was a radio station that used to play punk every weeknight from 10 pm to 11 pm, but there was never really any single band that got me into it.

I liked Green Day a lot, so I listened to The Ramones and The Sex Pistols some, but I didn't appreciate them until later. My friend gave me a Misfits CD (American Psycho). I liked it a lot at the time, but it seems very boring now. Around that time I started getting into Operation Ivy. That got me interested in other ska-ish stuff and Rancid, and made me appreciate The Ramones more. It was a long time before I was open-minded enough to like The Clash.
#18
man, i made such a change in music.

started thinking Green Day was sick punx.

now i listen to LoC.

green day still rawks tho.
#19
I got ...And Out Come The Wolves in 7th grade. I saw the name Rancid and said to myself "thats a great name for a band". So I bought it and I was hooked. I then took the natural step to NOFX, Lagwagon, and the like, and then started listening to the Misfits. Thats when I started getting into hardcore (real hardcore mind you). I started listening to Minor Threat, Black Flag, the Adolescents, etc. Along the way I started expanding into other offshoots of punk like crossover thrash, ska-core, glam, and psycobilly.

Now, 2 years later, I have a collection of over 120 cds, no money, and no band. tr00 p0nx huh

I got into all these lame bands like The Dead Kennedys and The Ramones but it's cool because they introduced me to sweet true punk bands like Good Charlotte and Simple Plan.
#26
misfits is what i started out on, then that drug wasnt enough and i had to go on harder meds like crass and nausea.

Green Day. Then I kind of lost interest in the genre for a year, then The Casualties and Against Me! got me back into it.

That's like me...then I discovered punk, then ska. Now pop-rock just disturbs me...

Ive always been exposed to it. My sister (who turned 25 yesterday), has been playing it on her stereo since i was born. Punk is probably her favorite genre and she has really great taste in music. She's always blasting the stereo and i remember as a kid listening to her favorite bands.

I was heavily into mainstream pop-punk like Green Day, Sum 41, and Weezer. Then I started hanging out with some kids who listened to punk, and they ALWAYS had music playing, so I basically had no choice but to listen.

They introduced me to the Misfits, Operation Ivy, the Dead Kennedys, Catch 22, Dropkick Murphys, and Leftover Crack, and from there, I was hooked on everything.

It was really a matter of my friend Robert putting his Media Player on shuffle whenever we were at his house playing videogames, and me saying "who is this?!?!" every time I heard something I liked.

Quote by GannonBracewell

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

Hmm, thinking about it I suppose Madness started it all for me too, but then schoolkids in Britain in the early 80s sort of HAD to like them, it was a basic rites of passage. That, getting a pair of Monkey Boots and sniffing Tipex Thinner off the sleeve of your jacket. Happy days.
