Where Speed Metal smashes into Ska and Reggae and ultimately annihilates Jam Music.

Despite having turned into a Deadhead, Jazz and Reggae collector, Punk Rock was my initial introduction to live music as a little thrasher kid going to East Coast skate band shows and seeing DK, Black Flag, The Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, and so many more.

When I got out West in the late 80's and early 90's I was lucky enough to catch NoFX, Rancid and Green Day all playing the same dives on the same night. Green Day was always the lowly opener.

Anyone else a fan? Some of you guys know the old school stuff- Ramones and Sex Pistols, GBH and The Automatics etc etc.

California has managed to keep the heart and soul of Punk alive and well. There's nothing as fun as a rowdy punk show.

A taste of my favorite, with a little Jerry diss (THE NERVE!) thrown in for good measure.

I still listen to the many of the same bands I did 30 years ago, Flipper, Sex pistols, circle Jerks, DOA, The Mutants,etc on my ipod. My kids like Lady Gaga; where did I go wrong? Just missed a reunion show this past weekend with the Zero's, No Alturnative, and the Mutuants (well most of them, one of the singers couuld not make it) in Oakland.

Skiiing with Fritz Fox of the Mutants at A-Basin a rew weeks back.

X, pistols, DK, black flag, fugazi, minor threat, ramones, bad religion and all the rest...

one of the best gigs i ever had was: Vans Warped Tour 1996 and 1997.. My buddy Todd Alston had the contract to haul the climbing wall around and we would set it up and put 500 kids a day on. Some gigs we did comps at.
I got to tour for 7 weeks and live on the bus with the skater guys who built the Ramp, Steve Alba was the guy who ran that show and was a super cool cat to hang with.
So we got to tour with Nofx, Rancid, Bad Religion, boss tones, pennywise, rev horton heat and so many other bands. i got to hang with a lot of these cats and most were cool. I had all access passes and shot many slides of film on stage...
i'll try to post those soon..

For me I don’t know if it was punk rock, besides seeing X and the Clash, so much as the beginning of what they call alt/indie rock, the Beat Farmers, Rank and File, the Violent Femmes (what a fiasco of a show)the Mats, the Chili Peppers… just biding time until Nirvana/Grunge came and validated it all.

I was always a little "off" from my peers in my musical tastes - for example, albums owned in 4th grade were Bowie, Alice Cooper, Kraftwerk, Jefferson Airplane But I recall the day, in 1978, when the music world in general had it's switch flipped. There was a tv news story about this "new" music, and they featured The Talking Heads (WOW!!!!!) and The Sex Pistols(What The...? hahahah). I didn't quite get it, especially in that they seemed to include such vastly different styles as being of the same genre, but I knew there was something happening.

I loved the raucoussness of punk, but didn't have much access to it, save for some of the bands my brothers band did shows with and of course The Sex Pistols on the radio/news. Wishing and wondering how in hell I was going to get to be a part of it...

My brother's band, The Johnnies, was more New Wave, as you can see from the photo(I found on the web - possibly the sole surviving artifact of their group). Before being that, they called themselves Germane Shephard and the Police Dogs(and it seemed all the guys said THEY were Germane Shephard...)My brother is the one in the forefront, and the guy on the right was their drummer(and my boyfriend. swoon - my first love, but his cruelness made it easy to get over him when I finally decided to leave).

They did covers(Devo's "Gates of Steel", Elvis Costello, Blondie, Sex Pistols, Kraftwerk's "Model" - all made for a good night out. But also they had many originals, and it's really a shame none of the recordings any longer exist. They were very good, actually, and they style was unique. Pretty, poetic yet hard-rocking. Rumor had it at one time that, after the band broke up, the songwriter(guy on the left, the second from left played bass) sold one of the lyrics and snips of it morphed into a song recorded by Madonna. Don't know if that is true, but as they say - Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Hey Watusi, where did you see the Pistols in 76? I saw them in Winterland but the gigs in the south were said to be better, Also saw their 1996 reunion.

I was manager of this band for a while from Stockton- 2 of the originals just reformed for a few gigs and are playing in Canada, the U.S., Iceland and England. Pavement was also from Stockton and helped them get these gigs.

One of my best friends was the main promoter in Sacramento for the early eighties. Saw way too many bands to remember. The lead singer of Sewer Trout from Sacramento was a climber. He recorded an album(tape) of punk rock songs call Rock and Ice. I think I have a copy still kicking around.

Another band that aged well is The Adolescents

In my middle/high school years, my life was all about skateboarding and punk rock. For my first real concert, a bunch of friends and I drove up to Cleveland to see Bad Religion with Greenday opening. It was the "Recipe for Hate" tour... I was 15 or 16. Spent the whole time in the pit and went home bruised and drenched in sweat... best time ever!

Some of my favorites are Bad Religion, Fugazi, Minor Threat, NOFX, Screeching Weasel, the Clash, and Descendents.

For a couple years I played in an LA band called Toss That Doll.

It was wild. The lead singer's mike was installed inside a naked baby doll. We would toss inflated sex dolls out onto the club floor, and frequently they were put to use. Our lighting guy would always throw a spot on that action.

Some lyrics..

I took her to the Doctor,
Didn't know what else to do.
He put the needle to her head,
And pushed it on through.

STORY OF MY LIFE LYRICS

Well, High school seemed like such a blur,
I didn't have much interest in sports or school elections.
And in class I dreamed all day, 'bout a rock 'n' roll weekend.

And the girl in the front of the room,
So close yet so far y'know she never seemed to notice,
That this silly school-boy crush wasn't just pretend.

Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past - story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.

And I went down to my old neighborhood,
The faces have all changed, there's no one left to talk to.
And the pool hall I loved as a kid is now a 8-11.

I went downtown to look for a job,
I had no training, no experience to speak of.
I looked at the holes in my jeans and turned and headed back.

Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past - story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.

Good times come and good times go,
I only wish the good times would last a little longer.
I think about the good times we had and why they had to end.

So I sit at the edge of my bed,
I strum my guitar and I sing an Outlaw love song.
Thinkin' bout what you're doin' now and when you're comin' back.

Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past - story of my life.

Story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.
Story of my life.

Rum Sodomy and the Lash is one of my all time favorite albums, but is it punk?

My definitions are getting fuzzy, fuzzier than they already are to begin with.

When I listen to the clash now, years later, they don't sound punk at all. They still sound great, don't get me wrong, but not punk.

I think you early punks have a different definition.

When I think punk, I think ramones style, power chords, not much in the way of lead guitar lines, and fast.

I think The Stooges and Patty Smith pretty much got my attention. I was a keyboard player in a punk/new wave band in the early 80's. We covered X (ahhh, miss Cervenka), The Divinyls (that great Australian group), and of course the early Pretenders. As you can tell, we had a female lead singer, she had pink hair and would get the crowd up and and jumpin with Rock Lobster (B-52's) and a medley we did from The Rocky Horror Picture show.

Johnny Cash, not punk, but certainly helped begat punk.

Loved (love) Husker Du, Bad Religion, Minute Men, Clash, DKs, SPs, etc.

I think in modern times we have such good access to good music via the internets. But back when we were stuck with the shite the radio played (take a look at the top ten from, say, 1984), first exposures to punk felt like a blast of fresh honest air.

The first Clash album is pretty punk. After that they diversify alot, going into ska, reggae etc.

Grew up in Torrance in the early 80's. Black Flag, Minutemen and Angry Samoans were the big local acts. Saw an early version of the Go-Gos trying to be punk.
Scariest show I went to was the Germs when I was pretty young. Very violent, Darby Crash slicing himself up on stage with a razor. While I had fun in mosh pits when older, that one was too much for me at that age.

Saw a number of great X shows.
Oingo Boingo was only sort of punk, but put on awesome shows. The Halloween shows at Irvine Meadows are one of my favorite concert memories.

When Lydon called punk a fashion statement?

For him it always was a fashion statement. They were a manufactured band, where music was second to the whole product.

Don't get me wrong, the Pistols have their moments, but sh#t- sid couldn't play the bass, he just looked the part and got real famous.

If you just listen to the music, now that the hype has died, the pistols had some good stuff, but not alot.

The best bands always write the best songs cuz they take song writing seriously.

Never seen them live- are you saying they are more punk, or don't play well.

I'm thinking the recorded version of whirlpool- that lick is not punk, but is it cool.

I've been reading through all these bands on this thread, many of whom are among my favorite bands, but I don't really think of as punk.

My definition is off maybe. Is grunge an off shoot of punk or metal? Should the word be retired?

Definitions aren't really needed though, it's the stick we wind our conversation around.

The important part is to remember the good bands.

So I'll add the Mighty Bosstones- as much ska as they are punk. Possibly the best live show I ever went to.

Sebadoh is Lou Barlow's band (bassist from Dinosaur Jr.) formed after the falling out with J.

Saw Leftover Crack in Luzern Switzerland a couple of years ago. The singer kept telling the audience that they all got rich on Nazi gold. It was the bassists birthday and they ended up winging some crappy Pixies covers. The guitarist got pissed and walked off. Heard later that they ended up owing the promoter a bunch of money after being f*#ked up for the whole tour.

Awww, the Meat Puppets were punk as fuuck. I saw them at Nino's, a grimy punk rock bar in Tucson circa 1986. Oh, they started out crisp enough, but the show degenerated into a fabulous slop-a-thon culminating in a staggering trash the drum kit and sprawl into the crowd spectacle. Those guys were punk in every way that matters.

Damn but I saw a lot of great bands at that bar 85-86: MP of course, Naked Prey (tucson's version of the Wipers), Sidewinders, U and the Risk (nogales mx punk band) Crazy 8's (pdx ska band, played their hearts out for two sets to a crowd of 18), The Church, Phantom Limbs (tucson thunderf*#k acoustic punk wonders), Deadbolts, and a host of other bands. Bar was 8 blocks from my house, ahh the gawd damned glory days.

Yeah mrtropy, we got on the tour with mostly our originals...One of which was in the film "Crimson Tide" but as the tour progressed we opted to toss in some covers from like: Stone Temple Pilots, Faith No More, Alice in Chains, etc. with some Pistols, Ramones and the like...It actually helped to get them to identify with us more and we partied with them like fiends!! Some of the bases were in pretty cool countries like Crete, Italy, Spain and such but some were kind of heinous like Kuwait, Saudi, Turkey, etc. since it was in the time of Desert Storm, and the nationals looked on us as infidels...Which I guess we were to them! Guantanamo was weird also and we even ended up in Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, but all in all it was a great experience just meeting all the guys and I even got to hook up with quite a few when I was back guiding in Josh as a lot were stationed at "29 Stumps" which was what they called it, so I would take groups of them climbing, non-gratis of course!!:)

It was about six of our songs that got in there. Other than that there is the short segment in "Crimson Tide" but if you send me your address I'm still sitting on a heap of our CDs, and I could send you one.

I've read this entire thread, and there's not one mention of Propagandhi. And you guys get accused of being 'liberal'! Saw them live for the first time in May this year, brilliant show, great guys, total dirtbag touring style. And they stand for something. Though some of this audience may be offended by themes (mis)interpreted as "anti-American". Eg, the song 'A Speculative Fiction' -
"A new iron curtain drawn across the 49th parallel;
Cut all diplomatic ties as we expel;
all American dignitaries, and issue a nation-wide;
travel advisory for any others left inside.
Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide.
The burned out shells of south-bound traffic lay;
strewn across a cold stretch of would-be interstate.
Still visible below their charred remains: Pax Americana plates.
Your stupid f*#king laser-pucks were just the start!
And while you may stand six full cubits and a span;
A shepard's sling and five stones in our hand;
The battle of 1812 lives in our heart.
We don't care if we're destroyed.
We'll never capitulate.
We'll take the whole f*#king world down;
Down with us in flames.
Just a speculative fiction.
No cause for alarm.
We got a good 15 years left;
‘till the ‘United We Stand’;
murals on West Broadway finally fade;
and we wave good-bye to such sad, childish refrains.
Replaced with other stupid lullabies;
like "you can have my guns when you pry;
them from my;
cold dead hands".
Just a speculative fiction.
No cause for alarm."

Joey Ramone left this world while listening to U2. U2 was hugely influenced by the Ramones.

To some extent, all bands are influenced by those who came before, life experience and signs of the times.

But every once in a while, some incredible musicians hook up with someone who lends a voice and something to say.

These are the bands that stand the test of time. Funny, my iPod just hit "Radio Clash". On that note...

Of all the great bands I have seen in my life, I would put Social Distortion as the best. Fishbone comes in a close second. "Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't", Mike Ness

I wish more of my climbing partners had punk rock roots, as I have. My humor can be offputting and vulgar. I listen to loud, fast, sloppy music (though it's become more eclectic in the more recent years.) I see it merely as one of my feminine charms.

Screeching weasel, the queers and the nobodys are playing in Denver on July 15th. If you know these bands, you know how ridiculous a line up this is. Unfortunately, I'll be on the road. However, all of these bands still play a rad show. I pitted to "My Right" at the last Weasel show i went to, and I've seen the Queers 20+ times, they play the same set every damn time, and it never gets old.

Yes, awesome thread! Here's 4 faves, punk had a message, a voice, & an answer when i was a kid. Made a lot of sense when combined with a skateboard & the general frustrations of being young dealing with authority, growing up, etc. It was a great release from the confinements that society provided. One of my favourite things about going to punk gigs was that the band would often just play wherever- in some random hall, indian reserve school gym, some kids basement, wherever possible just to get their message out. The band felt more like your peers & someone you could relate to rather than going to see some rock stars way up on a big fancy stage. At the real punks shows you were on the stage too.

Finding the good ones was like panning for gold, especially pre internet. I remember trading tapes with so many people & constantly making mix tapes. With punk you could get 35 songs on a 90 minute tape no problem, almost 40 if you had high speed dubbing!

Brandon, yes. I like new music a lot. It was too obvious to use that phrase with Joe Strummer. My playlist frequently includes The Pogues, Flogging Mollies, California Celts, Clash, Ramones, among other newer edgy stuff. Need to get some White Stripes. What about Dead Presidents Heads? Funny shiat. Only thing I don't like is straight up metal. And even some of that is OK.
Best concert I ever saw was David Bowie with NIN as the opener. They ended up playing together for an hour before NIN gave up the stage to Bowie and his band. Bowie took a turn in the mosh pit too. Wild!

But my fav is still Led Zep.

my all time favorite punk band. this is this from their 2nd relaease (1990) Their tapes were always labeled as "Gospel/religious" in such stores as Tower Records", etc. (along with all the other Christian bands) so they never caught on big time. I mean, howmany kids, or whatever, will venture over to the "Gospel Section" to check out bands/tapes. Only the Christian youth. I spoke with management, etc, as did the record companies, managers, etc....no go! It figures, eh? Talk about stereotyping. But you could buy their tapes in all the "Bible Bookstore" back then, that's where I got them. Talk about a clueless world!!


Regardless, they had a lot of great gigs via word of mouth. I listened to their tapes all day long on my Walkman. Heavy rifts and a driving beat with the double bass/kicker, and their lyrics were powerful. Rant over, lol!

Does anyone remember Fear, The Record?

They were awesome. Now there is a car commercial with the Sex Pistols singing "My Way." That song was on the "who Killed Bambi" record.

There was a good local music scene in OKC. Chainsaw Kittens, the best band was The Flaming Lips, who are now sorta mainstream weird. They are still a unique band with punk roots.

The Lips have an annual New Years concert, and people come from all over to see it.

A few years ago they covered Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and it was awesome live.

A bunch of us drove from Bozeman, MT to Fort Collins CO to see NoMeansNo way back when. Three of us rotated turns in the trunk as we didn't have enough seats. Good times. They were so stoked that we drove 600 miles in a trunk, they made sure to come through Bozeman on their next tour. Nice dudes, good tunes.

I had until recently a NMN shirt that was a favorite of mine. It was a play on Henry Rollin's backpiece. Instead of "Search & Destroy" it had, "Stay Home & Read a Book".

Lol, fun thread. I remember in the 90s in NYC the lead singer from a not-quite-truly-famous but somewhat successful female punk band yelled out approval during a bad show of my band, and called us "punk rock" ..I disagreed at the time with the label but in retrospect I guess we were kinda punk after all...just, well, not that 3/4time-1-minute-song sorta punk that was big in NYC at the time...besides it was a compliment anyway... just saw the movie CBGBs, the library here in SLC has a copy. Fun movie! Didn't know Talking Heads got their start there.

Back when bands used to face a wall of phlegm. Strummer got a case of hepatitis from someone gobbing in his mouth. No one could figure out Strummer's lyrics, so people used to make up their own version - Joe said later that they were frequently better than what he was singing.

Lessee, the San Diego bands I best remember from the early 80's were DFX2, The Beat Farmers, The Rick Elias Band, Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper, The Penetrators, The Palladins, basically groups that played at the Spirit Club, The Texas Tea House, The Baccahanal, The Skeleton Club. Along with the LA bands, it was a good time for live music in SoCal!

It was a punk azz response to seeing what is 'the on going theme that " punk" is now just about making money off the angst of kids.
The need for a more focused and so resilient youth group force is needed now.
I see that, no I hear that Punk Rock sound can and does spread past generations.
I've not been a fan of GreenDay they seem like posers aimed at the making money thing
One or two off the charts hits and some lyrics I do like
but that picture and the post about the memorabilia burning ,

It is my main focus.
mixed with life's detritus and after football hangover , I fell asleep
Before the end of the overtime and missed the end of the game
So important just the worst thing since the election for me

Iggie & the Stooges!
The Early Velvet Underground
I was still only pre-teen so .,. . .

But yeah! Turn it up
And onetwothreefour -all out war noise to wake the Dead.....

@thebravecowboy -- props on the Blowfly vid. I love that guy. Reid was in no way, shape or form a snotty white suburban punk type, but his raps just slay me every time. Even though it came from a culture I never experienced, Rapp Dirty is an anthem for me, and has been since I first heard it while visiting my older brothers, who were living in the Village at the time and were totally plugged into NYC's creative grid. From what I've read, he was hugely influential in the Hip-Hop and R&B world, but honestly I don't know enough about the guy -- not as much as I'd like to...that spin on the Ramone's was part of a novelty album he did in the mid-00's just to pay the bills. Like many great creative types, he died broke, ripped-off and with a catalog worth tens of millions.

Here's a few pics and a vid of 'Los Angeles' I took at the show. Always great to see Mike Watt fire up the bass and the brothers Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets stir up old memories with 'Up On The Sun'. Of course, nothing more amazing than to belt out lyrics with John Doe a few feet away! Sadly, Billy Zoom hasn't been doing too well these days. He's battling bladder cancer; the reason he's sitting down. And Exene has her own health issues. Still an amazing show. Lots of people getting tossed over the front railing!

I am not a guitarist, but I think Paul Westerberg is often underrated. Also Manu Chau is good. Manu Chau was the front man for Mano Negra. Also Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello (one of my favorites).

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a wide spectrum of musical talent (mega-huge fan of David Gilmour and Robert Fripp!!!). Punk will always be punk. Lighten up.

My older brother learned the classic 70's rock when he was 15 or so yet played in a Punk band when he was 20 because that movement related to him aside from the pure guitarists perspective.

He grew older and his guitar playing mirrored his interest and continued to evolve. He payed classic guitar and Gypsies Kings flawlessly for a time. He now plays mostly blues, lots of slide in open tuning on a steel National- Robert Johnson and such.

My 23 year old son has followed much of the same path in his progression. My brother hosted us to The Crossroads Blues Festival at Madison Square Garden a couple of years ago knowing this may influence my sons guitar playing and advance him straight to the good stuff. It worked...
