Sex Pistols. The Ramones are great too, but Pistols are much better. (:

I'll have to agree.

Both The Ramones and Sex Pistols are overrated IMO, but Sex Pistols are incredibly dull and stupid where as the Ramones are fun to listen to when you've had a hard day and need to be cheered up.

Exactly. The Ramones are incredibly stupid, but very few bands wrote songs as catchy as the songs on their first 3-4 albums. Of course everything after that was basically a suckfest, but that's besides the point.

The Sex Pistols have no appeal musically whatsoever. People only like them because:

A.) Sid died.
B.) They pretend to be rebellious
C.) OMGZSEXSLOL.

From the Sex Pistols, I like the song "Submission". The rest is mostly boring from what I can remember. I haven't listened to them in a while.

What, no Dead Kennedys or Bad Religion? Those are my favorites...

Meh. Whatever. Go Ramones...

The Clash is one of the single greatest bands of the era, let alone in the punk genre... and yet, they aren't included.

The Ramones are 10000000000000000000000000 times better than sex pistols ever hoped to be.
Right now I can't decide between Misfits and Ramones, but I voted Misfits. Dammit, what the fuck? Only one other person voted for them?
Dammit, Misfits are so underrated these days.

Let's face it, The Ramones are only, like 2 or 3 times better than the Sex Pistols.

I agree that The Clash should have been included.

Jesse, you haven't heard more than 2 or 3 songs from either of them.


And the Misfits kinda suck.

I intensely dislike the Sex Pistols. Even now, almost 30 years since their uprising they annoy me.

The Ramonesare light years ahead of sex pistols.
I would've included The Clash, but (they're still a great band)in my views, they were only "punk" for about one album.
And That_Guy91, The Misfits suck like you suck cock.

Well, that's a pretty pathetic list. I like the Descendents, so I voted for them as being the best of those four, but there are loads of better bands.

Also, the Misfits, for the most part, suck.

The Clash were an amazing band, especially when compared to the punk bands of that era. Unlike the Ramones, they grew and evolved without completely sucking and a lot of their "non-punk" stuff as you call it, is better than their punk stuff.

I never got into the Clash. I don't think that they're bad, but I definitely think that they were overrated and there's plenty of stuff from the late 70s that I'd rather listen to.

Jeez, they only let me put 4 choices. Maybe I shouldn't have put sex pistols on there, to make room for a better band.
Misfits don't suck, stupid. Try listening to the song Angelfuck, then try to tell me that they suck.

I truly don't understand how the Misfits got to be so popular. They had a few catchy songs, but they weren't ever very special. If it weren't for the make up and goofy haircuts, their following probably wouldn't be half as big.

You're 14 years old and list your location as the least cool slang for California ever. Don't try to tell me about music (faggot).

Glenn Danzig was the only good thing about the Misfits, everything else regarding them was just awful.

Ninthlayer, do you really listen to Enrique Iglesias, or did your sister get on your computer?

supervirgin5000, yes I do listen to Enrique Iglesias. But you're still the bigger fag out of the two of us, go figure.

Enrique is an unbelievably shitty singer, and "Hero" may just be the worst song of all time. Bbuuuuuuuuut he's also got some pretty damn catchy shit and generally doesn't try to sing outside of his limited range like some (coughdexterhollandcough) so often do. So, the occasional listening to Enrique is a thing to be celebrated.

And goddamn I love "Rhythm Divine."

in a fag contest between you and me, you win. no contest.
besides, theres tons of dumbass metalheads like you who won't stop going on about how they think that Danzig is better than Misfits. I think that 'Fits fans like myself are tired of it now. Danzig is a good band though. Just not as good as Misfits IMO.
btw, what other slang term for california is there? or were you just trying to say some other nonesense to make me look stupid?
oh, and according to your biography, you will always be the worst. I guess that counts for grading music as well.

I love this edit:

I get called a metalhead in it.
'fits fans are 14 years old, lawl. TRU PUNX indeed.
Calling California "Cali" is just lame and faggotted. I don't care if you can't think of another slang term for it because whawhawhawhawha, you're gay.
I will always be the worst is a lyric from the song Generation X-Wing by the Matthew Good Band (which is a far superior song than anything that the Misfits have ever written, Danzig era included).

It's still better than living in England. Lebanon is more habitable than England.

Punx is and will always be the worst music ever invented. Television was more punk RAWK than any post Ramones punk band. Everybody since then has been a fucking copy cat, Misfits included.

okay, why again do we need you always insulting me on this goddamned forum? I made this thread to discuss punk bands of the 70's and 80's, not for Misfits haters who can't find another insult besides gay or faggot.
oh yeah, I know alot of Misfits fans that are above 14.
insult away, that's all you're good for.
