Rolling Stone Magazine’s Best Punk Bands List Seems A Little Skewed


Rolling Stone posted a list of the best punk rock bands, the result of a reader’s poll. Here’s what Rolling Stone’s readers said the top punk bands are.

1. Green Day

2. The Clash

3. The Ramones

4. The Sex Pistols

5. The Dead Kennedys

6. Iggy and the Stooges

7. Black Flag

8. The Misfits

9. Social Distortion

10. Bad Brains.

No I can appreciate some of that, but not all of it. I mean, the Clash is behind Green Day? Thats just dumb right there, The Clash is 1,000x better then Green Day, and then the Ramones in 3? Come on the top 3 is fucked right there. And where is the Germs? Whats a top punk list without the Germs? And Minor Threat? They helped spawn thousands of bands. The Descendents? Where would Green Day even be without the Descendents. The Top 3 is really just fucked.

Clash deserves to be up there, Green Day and the Ramones though, eh, not so much. On top of that some of the greatest, most influential punk bands of all time are off the list.
