I'm not as much of an afficianado as some so I'll go with this predictable choice: London Calling. For my more obscure pick, and I don't know if this even qualifies as punk, but I love the Meat Puppets and my favorite album of theirs is Mirage.

Tough call. Probably gotta go with Dead Kennedys' Fresh Fruit for the Rotting Vegetables.

I'm honestly kind of surprised there aren't any cranky anti-punk posts here yet.

I suppose it's technically an EP, but In God We Trust Inc. is my favorite.

"Damaged" is the common choice for Black Flag, and that's a monster album, but this compilation of the pre-Rollins singles is at the top of the heap as far as all-out punk goes. I'm more of a My War-era fan actually. The first real fusion of punk & metal, but that's another topic.


Anyone check out Keith Morris' new band Off!? It's quite good. He still sounds out of his mind at 55. The new release is a box set of four 7"s, no song is past the 2 minute mark. http://offofficial.com/

So, I see everybody has reached a consensus.

An optimist hopes for the best, a punk knows better and a pessimist would say, hey, a really fantastic choice of yours. The thing is, it's way too frsh for a proper hair-cut, beta4moricoolliest speaking.

I second this, when I saw the tour in LA in '77, it almost seemed comical since the Punk thing was in full bloom, leave it to Frank to do something tounge in cheek and it plays better than the actual thing he is making fun of.

London Calling-The Clash


Like the noms for Never Mind The Bollocks and Rocket To Russia, also.
Although more known for rockin' out, Joan Jett's song "Bad Reputation", and many of her albums could very well be considered punk.
