    Question Best 70s and 80s Era Punk Rock Band?

    This is a PUBLIC poll!
    Your vote will be visible to everyone.
    Hey folks, gonna liven tings up a bit here with a little poll. Will definitely be flawed as there are way to many honorable mentions to include everything here, but I tried to give a decent list but feel free to list your favorite true punk banc below because there is no way to list all the good ones in a poll format here.

    Dead Kennedys
    Black Flag
    Sex Pistols
    New York Dolls
    The Clash
    The Damned
    The Offspring
    Circle Jerks
    Jim Carroll Band
    The Ramones

    Maybe we can do Ska, Classic Rock, Hair Bands, Metal Genres' etc.. each week.

    Probably the most obscure band listed up there is Jim Carroll Band. The movie "The Basketball Diaries" is actually about kids from his high school.

    I had to go with the Clash too. Interesting bit of movie trivia. Jim Carroll actually had a speaking cameo in "The Basketball Diaries."
