Never really got into much of the hardcore stuff. I was always a more melodic person. (Thanks to hair metal of the 80's like Poison) Personally, more of a Rancid, Op Ivy, NOFX, Bad Religion kind of guy who would not be here without those pioneers. I think 2/3 of the punk today is screamo crap and the rest is the old bands doing what they usually do. Always will love DKM (though they have changed), Me First, and these guys

Just have to say suicidal is still one of my favorite bands to pop into the cd player. First encountered them at Metallica concert at CSUDH back in 94. They were ****ing nuts and amazing.
Other classics as mentioned adolescents, subhumans, I still even enjoy popping in some naked aggression.

don't have time to post videos, but my big ones are fugazi, the clash, gorilla biscuits/quicksand, black flag, texas is the reason, h2o, bad religion, far, jawbreaker/jets to brazil. so mostly stuff that rose from the ashes or were influenced by original punk and hardcore. then i like a bunch of post/melodic hardcore and pop punk bands that formed in the 90s as i was in high school and getting through college. those are too numerous to mention.

Meh, I hope this thread doest turn into that tired debate. IMHO, Punk is ultimately a state of mind and not the stupid "Brand" it’s unfortunately become. Threads like this inevitably turn into an “F-U! My subgenre is better Punk than your subgenre…” and things get ugly. I hope we don’t go in that direction. I may disagree with what someone a lot younger than me may consider Punk, but it’s all relative. I’ve been fortunate enough to live through the heyday of the latter beginning, middle, and (what I would consider) the end of Punk. That gives me a better knowledge base to draw my conclusions from. Now if someone comes on here and says “Green Day is the best Punk band ever!” I’d call them lame and probably Ving them in the head…Now THAT’S PUNK! :D

But my introduction to Punk came after the Ramones had already laid the groundwork.
So, it would be highly hypocritical of me to say anything that came after Hardcore is crap. I’ll give anything a listening to and if its crap, it’s based on its content and not its label.
And thats that on it from me...
