i wouldnt consider them punk...same with blondie...maybe the voidiods and the heartbreakers...but just barely

In the late '70s, punk hadn't codified into that easily-defined 'loud fast rules' aesthetic yet. Patti Smith, Tom Verlaine, Johnny Thunders, and Debbie Harry were all there when it started, and all of them were called 'punks' by the less-than-accepting mainstream. They blazed the trail everyone else followed.

I may or may not care for where they went later, but without them, no punk rock.
