    Just wondering if anyone likes this type of music, I can rarely find anyone who does, but I know there's people out there! Anything such as Blink 182, Yellowcard, All Time Low, etc. (some of my favorites :smile:).

    It kind of bothers me how I like these bands before they are famous, then they become famous and very pop-like, but I still like them even after all that.

    Just some thoughts, anyone else have any opinions?

    I prefer old school Punk bands, but I'm a huge fan of The Offspring too.

    you got me poppin' champagne!


    i like that song from all time low, but meh really. Blink are a band of my youth so i like them, but i prefer older punk, but im not that big of a listener. youd get a better convo talking about these bands with my brother or girlfriend.

    From Velvet Underground to the NY Dolls to The Ramones to Gang of Four to Dead Kennedys (but I didn't like Lard) to The Talking Heads, to The Sex Pistols to The Circle Jerks to The Cramps to The Clash to Nina Hagen then on to Blondie, Violent Femmes, The Vandals, Runaways, Iggy Pop/Stooges, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Minutemen, Oingo Boingo, The B-52's, Dead Milkmen, Social Distortion, X, Minor Threat/Fugazi, Joy Division/New Order, The Go-Go's (before they went pop), Bow Wow Wow, The Clash, Bad Religion, Adam and the Ants, The Four Skins, Black Flag, The Pixies, Sonic Youth, Gas Huffer, The Hives, and Nirvana.

    I don't care for The Plasmatics, Bosstones (or much other ska), Rancid, Pere Ubu, Hüker Dü, or Suicidal Tendencies.

    I do like cowpunk. I know some bands changed genres or worked in multiple genres.

    I used to listen to the more metallic type of hardcore bands in the 80's like DRI, Suicidal Tendencies, Agnostic Front, Wehrmacht, SOD, MOD etc.

    NOFX has more talent in the bass players left testicle than all of Blink.

    some vintage punk rock is still good. (for better or worse i was there.) the ramones, in my opinion, stand the test of time better than the clash. new york dolls are in a league of their own. guess i've mainly moved on to other interests.
    when punk rockers started taking it seriously, it ruined everything. the modern lovers were great at the very beginning of all that.

    some fairly recent bands are pretty good -the view, delta spirit, and grizzly bear,
    to name a few. and the strokes from a few years back.

    I like to hum Appendix Gone. It's a catchy tune.

    Ah but like the Go-Go's, they were in their early days and played some of their stuff in concert even if those songs didn't make it on to their records. I have (or had) a bunch of bootleg stuff from various bands that show their punk roots before record companies repackaged them into something else. Talking Heads much of the same thing. What they played and what got published were frequently two different things with quite a few bands. It's sad.

    I like this kind of music, yes! Jason, that's a very good list you have there.

    I loved it when grunge came out in the 90's - Nirvana and Alice in Chains, to me the perfect kind of music.

    Naked Raygun still holds up well after all these years. Love their cover of Stiff Little Fingers' Suspect Device.
