Ive always been a big classic rock/jam band/ grunge fan, but i also like a few punk bands.

dead kennedys, black flag, fugazi, and ummm i guess early slightly stoopid are really the only punk bands i listen to.

i know theres a wealth of good punk bands im not tapping into so i come to ask for some recomendations.

My friend gave me a d.r.i. album and i wasnt to fond of them just to let yah know.

Listen to Rancid.
Do it.
Now.


You COULD listen to rancid... but they're f*cking sh*t.

If you check the stickied list of punk and ska bands, you'll find some greatly superior alternatives.

Would you guys be obliged if I made an official Recommendation thread? I have an idea of how it could be really organized and helpful. And hopefully it'd cut back on these types of threads.

You fixed yourself, you said, "Well, never mind,
We are ugly, but we have the music."
