Wow this thread's pretty damn awesome. It's like a master class in punk history. I can't compete with the knowledge being dropped about the punk originals of the '70s and '80s, so I'm gonna jump to the '90s and '00s, just because.
Since this is a hockey forum gotta give some love to Propagandhi, just because right? I mean punk that mixes in some hockey references? Hockey runs deep in Canada, even if your a queer vegan feminist anarchist.
Don't want to be the Steve Smith of the revolution. Do you see the analogy? We're the Oilers. The World Bank, the Flames! And just 2 minutes remain in the 7th game of the best of 7 series. Yeah, Jesus saves, Gretzky scores! The workers slave, the rich get more. One wrong move and we risk the Cup. So play the man, not the puck.
Propagandhi - Resisting Tyrannical Government
Not really punk, but I always lump in early Camper Van Beethoven with punk in my brain because the attitude and sense of humor seemed so similar.
Camper Van Beethoven - Take the Skinheads Bowling
I always feel really sorry for kids of today because what can possibly be their "punk?" What I mean is aligning yourself with music that seemed so outlaw was half the fun back then. The simple act of liking music that the olds couldn't appreciate was a safe form of rebellion and acting out. The Reagan-Bush years were a boon for the punk attitude since that leadership really artificially extended the reign of that Lawrence Welk, pearl clutching, 1950s vibe, y'know? Even during the Clinton years, as the country lurched forward culturally after years of stagnation, there was hip-hop (which wasn't really new but it was new enough for most of America to freak out about) for kids to latch onto as music their rock 'n' roll parents could not understand. But now what? You can't listen to any kind of rock music since it's almost all old hat. Hip-hop has been mainstream for decades now. Even EDM isn't that new since parents of today have seen it before as house/techno/electronica/d&b/trance. So what's a kid that wants to define him/herself supposed to do? Are we reaching a strange time where kids cannot freak out square society with music anymore? If so that makes me really sad. Blasting "your" music that nobody else could appreciate was one of the simple pleasures of life as a kid. What the hell are current kids gonna wax rhapsodic about on messageboards in 20 more years? Sending stupid tweets on Twitter? Sexting each other with Snapchat? Completely lame BS like Mumford & Sons or Macklemore? Jesus, that's grim... Sorry for the ranting. Being up late + whisky never equals great things.
This s**t sounded revolutionary when it came out. Now it just reminds me of all the nu-metal BS bands that aped this sound after. That really pisses me off.
Refused - New Noise
More Canadians. No hockey references this time though.

Hard to find very many videos on youtube, but I recommend the songs "I Had a Dream About Hockey", "H.O.C.K.E.Y.", or "Let's Drink". For a trial: http://www.twomanadvantage.com/themp3s2.html

Citizen Fish - Over The Fence
I'm in a better mood today so I did not break out the Varukers. Played a punk playlist from the ipod and this came up. Great tune! If the vocals sound familiar it is Dicky from the Subhumans, actually Trotsky and Phil from the Subhumans are in this band too. So it is 3/4 of Subhumans but with a bit of a lighter sound.
