Righto, so i've started to get really heavily into punk, but my usual contributors aren't around, so I need you guys to recommend bands. These are the bands i'm really digging at the moment:

TSOL

My Chemical Romance

None More Black

US Bombs

The Clash

AFI

Cheap Sex

The Misfits

Balzac

Anti-Nowhere League

So, barring the obvious suggestions and what I have there, suggest shit. I'll prolly dig all of it.

Punk begins and ends in England >_>

All of those bands suck.

Refused is all you need, and the bands I gave you last night.

I don't like punk, and I don't overly like any of those bands.

But those are 3 of the bigger bands mentioned when people like Punk......them and the Ramones.

Pssh. Everyone cool who likes punk likes MCR and AFI. Post-Hardcore type shit has always been tossed in with Punk.

And you make me chuckle. He's being a cock for the sake of it, yet you're playing with sub-genres in a topic about music you already claimed not to like much. It doesn't really matter how punk, or not punk, those bands are. I listed them because I am looking for new bands, and I like those bands.

I've never met any of these people. :P

As for suggestions, where can I start? There's a plethora of great punk out there, based out of so many different regions. From Austrailia you can check out the Saints, X, or the Psycho Surgeons. From the UK you can check the obvious bands out or Sham 69, Cockney Rejects, UK Subs, Blitz, and Subway Sect. From the USA (the greatest country for punk, bar none) you can look into hardcore shit like Gang Green, The Freeze, Wasted Youth, Code of Honor, Toxic Reasons, Crucifix, or Government Issue. If hardcore isn't your thing than maybe you prefer 77 style like the Dead Boys, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, or Richard Hell and the Voidoids. If you want something that is quirky or eclectic look into Geza-X, Black Randy and the Metrosquad, The Screamers, or Feederz.

I can rattle off many more bands if any of them tickle your fancy and you want more similar groups.

As for the whole "this is punk, this isn't punk" arguement, who gives a shit? There is a lot of shit that I wouldn't consider to be punk rock, based on my experiences and what I listen to. Some stuff is obvious punk, some stuff is borderline and hard to decipher. Shit, for example I think the B-52s are very garagey, and have a sound close to 77 style. A lot of people simply label them as poppy dance music.
