punk threads on /mu/ suck shit. Everybody here is into pop-punk because muh 90s, twinkly midwest emo or whatever the fuck it's called, and a good 50% of posters don't understand the different between punk and post-punk. Just don't bother with it.
Thats because /mu/ like punk in the same way that someone who owns an album by Johnny Cash, Hank Sr and townes Van Zandt likes country
Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material
X-Ray Spex - germ free adolescents
X - Los Angeles
Dead Boys - Young Loud And Snotty
stealing subgenres list from u
post hardcore>folk punk>pop-punk>hardcore>skate punk>funk punk>metal crossover>punk blues=garage punk = ska punk>>>>crust punk, anarcho punk, d-beat etc.
Because it's better than any other 'punk' album, probably due more its post-punk leanings than anything else. It's pulls off being catchy, ambitious and experimental at the same time, which hardly any albums (in any genre) actually achieve.
I think this is acceptable for a good punk thread
until you post at least three example of each subgenre I'm not going to believe you enough to have your opinion even considered
anybody look at the 'related genres' section on the wiki page and order then randomly with some greater than signs thrown in, and as far as I know thats just what you did
>7.8 / 10 - I replied with two paragraphs
Jawbreaker is more emo than pop punk imo, also descendents could either be lumped in with melodic hardcore or pop punk but most of their fan base lumps them in with the hardcore scene
yeah but only technically - they really weren't a punk band by that time.
Stretching the definition of punk with posts like that is part of the reason every punk thread devolves into a 'thats not punk' argument
Of course how far the definition of punk can be stretched is also what makes it an interesting genre - if you define it to rigorously it was dead by 1984 if not earlier.
you didn't list any classic punk there.
even Husker Du wasn't classic punk in my book. Heavily punk influenced, sure, but they expanded on it and made classic records, but I wouldn't call them classic punk - for that I think of tThe Ramones, The Clash, The Damned, Sex Pistols, Germs, Dead Kenedys, Crass
no, it's just white boy funk songs with vaguely political lyrics sung by a sub-par vocalist, something that Gang of Four and even RHCP did much better. There's really nothing experimental about them.
i counted crust punk, d-beat as metal crossover... together with grindcore, crossover thrash, some hardcore and metalcore.
folk punk would rank probably after metal crossover for me. not sure about anarcho punk as most of the stuff i really like from it is more post-punk sounding.
oh yeah art punk is probably after skate punk.
Can't believe no one mentioned THE punk/funk band.
>thinking punk is in any way dead
whats your favorite 2015 release guys? Mine is between this and Gay Kiss' new album.
I haven't come across much punk records in 2015. The only good thing is the Red Death - Permanent Exile so far. Mischief Brew and Red Dons are going to release new records this spring, and both will most likely become my AOTYs.
No thanks, I prefer my funk uncut
I haven't heard anything special yet, though that has more to do with me not listening to that much punk this year compared to the last few years than anything else.
In any case I can't wait for the new Gag album.
Best punk albums of all time:
Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance
Butthole Surfers - Psychic...
The Velvet Underground & Nico
Best post punk albums of all time:
This Heat - Deceit
Chrome - Half Machine Lip Moves
Alternative TV - Vibing up the Senile Man
I actually didn't like this album at all. People told me I would enjoy it because I liked Zen Arcade but this just didn't do much for me.
I honestly dislike folk punk in general. I feel like it combines the worst aspects of both genres.
