    A temporary lack of entertainment and earnings, until the venues got fed up and started booking real bands again.

    The Clash will always have my attention. Are they punk? Don't know, but I like their stuff. How 'bout David Bowie?
    Call it whatever, but if it's good, it's good.

    Napalm Death's Harmony Corruption is one of the few albums I thoroughly enjoy from beginning to end.

    Bad Religion's Generator is one of those albums I can listen to beginning to end. Super rare thing for me.

    Bowie is one of those rare artists who's respected within ALL musical genres. Which includes Punk rock

    I like me some metal, but grindcore is just a little bit too over the top for me. The squealing piggy vocals, the "recorded with a potato production", you know the drill.

    i love the music, but same as death metal, the vocals are just too much.

    What about early/proto grindcore? Vocals more like thrash:

    I like the music, but the vocals are still a bit too much. I like slayer, the vocals are i guess much more heavy metal than thrash.

    Youth raked over aggression with the violence of hot rooms, soiled spirits grouped loud and fast falling headlong into mattresses without sheets.

    Good call - no I hadn't. Horslips strike me as folk rock rather than punk folk but good stuff all the same.

    punk means a whole lot of different things to different people.

    at it's most essential, it is more of a methodology than anything else, and the form it takes flows from that. it's DIY, it's not being afraid of being at war with the world, and it's wanting to tear everything down and build something better in the ashes.

    that being said, i've really been liking this crow record that was reissued recently:



    and i've really been liking this year's physique lp:



    all of that being said, the sex pistols have precisely zero relevance to punk in 2020.

    the early new york hardcore scene definitely played tough guy in a dark, scary place, and a lot of them were able to back it up. the guys in the cro-mags and warzone and a lot of those bands were living in squats and brawling in the streets of taxi driver new york.
