    The statement being replied to was: "Lol. 80s metal - the worst of all the metals."

    catty?
    What do the Stray Cats have to do with anything?
    That Scorps album was definitely an 80s metal album

    OK, OK- I've compiled the following list so we can stop arguing about '80s metal and get back to arguing about Pun Crock:

    40 BEST METAL ALBUMS OF THE '80s

























    There, everyone feel better now?

    I think one defining characteristic of punk is the drums. I can't really recall rock bands playing like that before punk hit. This sounds pretty punk to me. espcially if you blast it loud out of good speakers.

    >>> No Raw Power, No London Calling

    Raw Power was before punk rock. London Calling was after it died... maybe not entirely, but the Clash were definitely not a punk band anymore starting with London Calling.

    The Jam were a punk band for their first two albums... a punk band with mod roots.

    Ramones, Heartbreakers, Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned, XRay Spex, Buzzcocks, and the Jam. That's all the punk rock anyone needs. Maybe add to that X and the Germs from L.A. and you got it. I wouldn't be surprised if none of them were on Rolling Stone's list. Rolling Stone was completely clueless about punk rock in the punk rock days... why would you expect anything different from them now?

    Green Day is to punk rock what Foreigner is to rock... safe, banal crap.

    That gets us back to the Who's influence over the Jam. No one played drums like Keith Moon.


    The Ramones were described by one record producer as bubble gum with distortion. Their stuff was catchy. I rolled on the floor laughing the first time I played their music. Those lyrics!

    Personally, I love the Jam, the Clash and the Buzzcocks. The first two morphed. The Buzzcocks stayed truer to their roots.

    I would say most punk bands were influenced by the who. The Sex Pistols were for sure.

    To me Raw Power is definitely punk rock,which is a sound as far as I am concerned, as much as the new york dolls or the heartbreakers were.

    Early The Who, for sure. Maybe not so much 70s Arena Rock Opera The Who.

    You know who had a big influence on punk? Ringo Starr. The Beatles as a band, to a degree, but Ringo specifically. Probably more than Keith Moon. Early punk drummers didn't play like Keith Moon. Most of them played a lot like Ringo. That trashy steady 1-2-3-4 8th notes on an open hi-hat? That was really from two guys - Ringo and Dave Clark. Ringo was easily accessible. You didn't have to take decades of lessons to drum like Ringo. That kind of thing definitely inspired a lot of punk rock drummers...which helped shape the overall vibe of the early punk sound. There was no John Bonham and very little Keith Moon style drumming in punk. Almost all of it was very Ringo-like.

    “Rolling Stones top 40 punk albums of all time” is oxymoronic.

    True punk rockers don't care about ratings.

    I disagree. A big reason I got into better music was lists like this when I was a kid. I found out about so many cool records this way.
