One of the odd things about punk is, like a so many things, only the main stream is talked about... What I liked about punk was how it was so local. In Toledo I would go to punk clubs in the 80's. I was in my 30's surrounded by teenagers, with other teenagers on stage.. (I was the old guy in the club) they would just be rocking out. In many ways those bands.. that audience also had an importance.

that said, I defer to colemj.. that is a pretty good list and a great cross section of bands.


Not exactly Punk, but certainly the spirit

Well I was one of those teens(and into my 20's)! Hung out in some pretty crazy clubs in Cincinnati while in college. Saw the DK's and Violent Femms, but mostly local bands that no one heard of in basement clubs we were warned not to go to! I remember one club strangely run by and elderly couple (or at least they seemed elderly to a 20 year old!) and they had 2 beer prices $1 for domestic and $2 for imports. No one drank imports till I pointed out that the Foster's oil cans at 25.4 oz was actually cheaper than the domestic stuff. Plus you threw the empty's onto the slam dancers! Those old tin cans had some weight to them!

Ahh the 80's what a time! Those kids today don't know what they are missing! (I think I am starting to sound like a grandpa!)

There was a band playing the club and they were paid two cases of cheap beer. And along with me, there were three old guys (60's) who were at the bar, who probably were at the bar every afternoon at 3 p.m. I think they had a great time watching their grandchildren being weird.


I think the Violent Femmes are great, but I thought of them less punk and more post-punk, like the replacements

I agree, although put in context of what was commercial popular music at the time, these bands were at the opposite end bringing something raw and new to the scene. Just imagine Air Supply doing "Gary's Got A Boner" or Eddie Rabbit doing "Add It Up"...

I did take some liberties using this context in my post above.

On the other hand, Budweiser has used a Ramones song, and Carnival Cruise Lines an Iggie Pop song, in commercials. If people actually knew this music, there would be outrage (budweiser used "i wanna be sedated", conveniently omitting those lyrics, and Carnival used "lust for life" which is a song about gay sex and drug abuse - also conveniently skirting the relevant lyrics).

What a great post

One of my favorite commercializations is Iggy Pop (Lust for Life) the intro that song is been used so much.. an do out of context of the performer. (this is the guy who "I wanna be your dog") He has yet to sell out in any way what so ever.

Btw, on your list my favorite is X, I thought that was a band that should be recognized as poets of a city (Los Angles) and perhaps more

Love The Replacements. Probably post-punk, you're right. Moreso than the 80s and 90s emo stuff that was coming out, but that's another story. (I do like Morrissey and the Smiths)

Re: The Punk Rock Thread

I wonder if kids know what they are missing

I do think that there are era's of music that is so creative (and often cheap) that it makes other era's look foolish... but if you live in the 'foolish' era, you don't know what you are missing

Like are their clubs doing original music (rap) that there are 5 bands for $5 and five hours.. and as creative as the 60's

As good as Taylor Swift is.. mainstream wise are there cheap alternatives..

I think that is one of the things about punk (post punk) the big groups didn't suck all the oxygen out of the atmosphere

I saw two of the best shows of my life at Bogart's in the late 80's. 7 Seconds in 88 and The Pogues in 89. I had seen The Pogues twice before so knew they were awesome, but Seven Seconds I was not expecting much, but they blew me away.

What were the Pogues like...? I have a thought they were chaotic or more professional than one could imagine...
