The Punk/Hardcore Thread


I'll open this up with black flag - drinking and driving

MDC - I remember

Anyone else?


1/2 hardcore + 1/2 death metal = grind core. Pig Destoryer. Prowler in the yard is one of the best albums ever.


Here are the hardcore and punk bands I used to like:

Agnostic Front (they really turned to shit though; Roger's voice now sounds like he has marbles in his mouth)
Exploited (all-time favorite)
Black Flag
Circle Jerks
Bad Religion
UK Subs
Minor Threat
Dead Kennedys (although Jello can take his radical leftist beliefs and shove it!)
Cramps (not exactly punk though)
Social Distortion (again, not exactly punk but came out of that scene)


Litmus Green

you can get all their MP3 streamed if you google them but theres nothing on Youtube except for a few things

<-----thinks Dead Kennedys are overrated

Turbonegro, one of my favorite bands right now. considered "death punk" so ill put them up


There is no hardcore punk without raised fist:

REFUSED cannot be ignored, legendary band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZETaebuIVA

I know you like Agnostic Front Zephead, so I don't even need to list
Turbonegro is great

The 21st Impact, lesser known but can get the blood flowing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItOrYJ5N8bE

Then for punk...
Propagandhi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAIUf_SYpwE easily one of the best bands out there right now..

I could put a million youtube videos on here, but you get the point..

and just for the conservative hardliner dickweeds on this forum
enjoy... prepare to get offended (thats the point of this one)

Descendents - 'merican: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLVKoXp22mo


The following bands (along with the ones Bricknyce mentioned previously) comprised the soundtrack of my life in the early through mid 80s:

Husker Du


Bad Brains


Anti Nowhere League



Agent Orange

Suicidal Tendencies


Husker Du is the beez knees.

In other words, if the band FUCKED UP comes around your town I H I G H L Y recommend seeing them
one of the wildest shows of my life

just saw dillinger four last night, it was a blast


Yeah that'll show 'em.

A Global Threat is pretty good.


Any self respecting punk needs to watch Decline of Western Civilization I.

"You aint punk Rock, Bitch you Just a Punk




My Ex liked the Angry Samoans a lot, they were pretty cool- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmVxqN4rg1c


I like this kind of Drinking and Driving more... ;D


Dillinger Four, a big punk band in the midwest

Against All Authority, a kickass ska-punk band from Florida that unfortunately is on some sort of extended hiatus. I saw them live twice, some of the best shows I have ever been to.

Jawbreaker ... legendary, need I say more? Unfortunately unwanted attention from MCR and Fallout Boy fans have surfaced. (Its actually surprising the singers of those bands actually listen to some decent older punk, they did grow up with it afterall.)

Capdown, great UK ska-punk

Common Rider, Jesse Michaels from OP IVY sings for them... great stuff. Kind of just chill, jam punk.

Deadline, female punk singer.. one of the only ones I like, even though she looks kind of like a dog..

The Ducky Boys, great sing along street punk

The Flatliners, great toronto ska-punk... saw em live once, brother saw em a few months ago said they were great still

Fucked Up. Their show changed my life... easily one of the best modern hardcore bands to DATE.
Do some research on them too, their past is for a lack of a better term.. fucked up.

Lagwagon, who doesn't listen to them when they're in some sort of strange mood? Theyre the best moody music

No Fun at all, a lot of fun..

Straight Faced... extremely hardcore punk rock. Makes you grit your teeth and slaughter innocents

And thats all I've got tonight


The Replacements

Husker Du

Minor Threat

Big Black



The Fall

Television/Richard Hell

The MC5

The Stooges


The Clash

The Misfits

Fucked Up
