The Ruts - The Crack (the best punk album)

Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing

Anti-Pasti - The Last Call

The Clash - The Clash

The Stranglers - No More Heroes

Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material

and I suppose I'll have to include:-

RE: Your favourite Punk albums

In no particular order:

 

The Sex Pistols - Nevermind...

Nirvana - Nevermind

Green Day - American Idiot

The Descendents - Everything Sucks

Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters

"                  " - The Color And The Shape

Bad Religion - Stranger Than Fiction

"                  " - The Process Of Belief

3 Colours Red - Pure

Dead Sara - Dead Sara

 

Seems I haven't heard or don't like a lot of what folk call punk. Mind, I've just seen a list of punk albums with a Justin Timberlake album on it (I think his first solo album).

I would add 'In The City' by The Jam and The Ramones self-titled album and Green Days 'Warning' album.

RE: Your favourite Punk albums

That's easy........errr................none.

And that's as one who is 52 and therefore lived through the height of punk. An almost complete lack of anything vaguely musical. Which is perhaps the point, it was all about capturing the anger of youth wasn't it? I wonder how angry Mr Weller is these days?!!

All of which is my personal opinion, if others like it (as indeed a lot of my contempories did) then fine, each to their own (another way of saying don't flame me please!)

Sorry, you're entitled to your opinion, but you're wrong in this case. I suggest you listen to The Crack by The Ruts, all three musicians were top drawer.

OK, it's on Qobuz so I've just favourited it and will give it a listen - never let it be said I've got a closed mind.  Now can I interest you in some jazz funk?!!! (if yes try Brian Culbertson - Live from the Inside)

I'll find the time later to have a look. I genuinely like all stylesof music, though I am picky within the genre. Jazz/Funk wise, I like JTQ, Brand New Heavies, I like funky Jazz, like Jimmy Smith, keyboard stuff really, but I'm not too kean on musicians that are technically good, and have to prove it every time they play something though.

RE: Your favourite Punk albums

I can't say I'm a huge fan of Punk, so making a list of 5 is a non-starter. I do though like The Ramones and a few tunes by The Sex Pistols. I realise that The Pretenders weren't  wholey a punk band, but some of their tunes certainly had a punk edge. I'm thinking mainly of their first album, which still remains one of my all-time favourite albums.....

None for me. The closest I can get is Billy Bragg

PS - Seeing all these band names makes me realise I actually quite liked a lot of Punk Smile

Try this, you may or may not like the vocals, but the drumming, guitar work, and bass playing is truly awesome.

RE: Your favourite Punk albums

Good call with Discharge BBB.

There are loads.

Mine are:

The Damned - Machine Gun Etiquette

The Stranglers - Rattusnorvegicus

GBH - City Baby Attacked By Rats

Vice Squad - Stand Strong Stand Proud

Anti Nowhere league - We are the league

I would like to say that Nirvana are not punk, nor are Green Day, not in or from the 'Punk' era that I think the OP is referring to. Or at least not what I consider Punk to be...... And as for Foo fighters - F***k right off.  :O

They obviously know what they're doing, but not really my thing, especially the vocals Wink  This is more my thing. I suppose I like something more melodious? I know that a lot of Punk bands went for that 'ballzy' sound, but if I want ballz (so to speak), I normally turn to AC/DC  Smile
