03-06-2007, 08:54 AM
100 best punk icons it looks like.. 73 being the best and the others are after.. (It's gotta be like that right??)

03-06-2007, 08:55 AM
eek, dodgy positing there

Basically: Who gives a... additionally the list makes no sence anyway.

03-06-2007, 09:50 AM
No, it's not about punk icons...anyway that's one of the shittiest lists I've ever seen.

03-06-2007, 09:53 AM

I don't think Bon Jovi is punk at all (#69)!!

03-06-2007, 11:54 AM
Just icons then..

03-06-2007, 11:56 AM
I don't think Bon Jovi is punk at all (#69)!!

just what I was thinking....

I like Bon Jovi...

Anyway. That's a weird list. But there's never gonna be a perfect list. No matter who makes it, no matter what the topic is, it's always gonna be according to the likes of certain person, or just a group of people. :(

The list does not have anything to do with punk. Punkdisasters.com is pasted into the pic

03-06-2007, 12:01 PM
Anyway if it was punk disasters, it would mean that the first ones are considered the worst and the ones near the bottom of the list are better than the first...

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!!! \m/ (>.<) \m/

03-06-2007, 12:25 PM
He's still in front of people like Iggy Pop, Gene Simmons and Dave Lee Roth... That list sucks!

03-06-2007, 03:17 PM
Hell, it's nice to see him on the list at all. Outside of this place and Ultimate-Guitar.com, I haven't seen The Offspring mentioned in a while.

03-06-2007, 03:19 PM
Another Kerrang abomination.

03-06-2007, 05:23 PM
Who in their right mind puts Billie Joe Armstrong, Benji Madden, and Brandon Urie in the top thirty? What the fuck?

To be honest, I'm surprised to see him on there at all. At least he's getting some acknowledgement.

Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl??? Don't make me fucking laugh :rolleyes:

03-06-2007, 07:06 PM
Dexter Holland, Billie Joe, and Gerard Way should NOT NOT NOT even be on that list, fact.

03-06-2007, 07:27 PM
Wait a minute! That's no "top whatever" list, it's a table of contents!!! XD


03-06-2007, 08:33 PM
yes but its stilla top 100 icons list cos it even says "position", so i guess the page just has some info on that particular person.
lol every member of metallica is on there. and in the words of otto, Metallica Ruuuuuuuules

03-06-2007, 08:51 PM
I like their choice of first.

03-07-2007, 03:39 AM
Some names on there are stupid... I can understand Dexter is around #73... considering there's bigger names like Paige, Angus and Grohl... But Billy Joe? wtf... throw him back in the stockade

03-07-2007, 07:47 AM
Billy Joe paid em..

03-07-2007, 09:39 AM

03-07-2007, 12:30 PM

who the fuck is angus young?

03-07-2007, 06:13 PM
Kurt Cobain, Billie Joe, and Dave Grohl in the Top 5? They shouldn't even be in the Top 100 along with Serj, Dexter, Ville Vallo, Axl and several others. Horrible, horrible list in my opinion. But this isn't my list.

03-07-2007, 06:40 PM
who the fuck is angus young?

Lead guitarist of AC/DC.

03-07-2007, 08:02 PM
maybe it was one of their stupid reader polls where people just vote for whoever is in their favourite band, there doesnt seem much logic in that list!

03-07-2007, 10:12 PM
Ville Valo #32! HAH! That list may kiss my white finnish ass!
Why is Ville ranked so damn high??

Dude fuck Kerrang we all know its a shit list

03-08-2007, 08:42 AM
To be honest i'm surprised Dexter even made that list with some of the historic names in it. How is Dexter more of an icon than Chris Cornell?

What have offspring done in the last 9 years? Released Conspiracy of one which done well with something like 3-4 million copies sold. Then they released splinter which was mediocore at best. Next they released greatest hits and a dvd, which didn't really get much attention.

It might be a shitty kerrang list, but i still think Dexter should be priviledged to be included.

Here's hoping that this next album will bring back what we all miss. The legendary punk rock band that you just couldn't get enough of.

03-08-2007, 08:59 AM
The only reason Dexter is on the list is because the band has a good relationship with Kerrang.

Come out and smash'em up!

Chris Cornell is a emo cryer from audioslave fuckers

Haha, i think you should do a little revision on Chris Cornell, and probably the term "emo" as well.

I'm not even a Chris Cornell fan, but he's done a shitload more than Audioslave.

Don't be an idiot.

03-08-2007, 07:13 PM
kerrang doesnt know fucking shit. they should not be allowed to have opinions. why the fuck is billie joe armstrong number 3?

03-12-2007, 09:19 AM
Coincidently a friend of mine was reading this mag in science today, he was slightly freaked when i asked could i have a look at number 73.

It's basically just a little article about Dex: describes the band's history, his age and height blah blah... his pilot liscence afew times (though nothing about gringo bandito:(). Being on an A4 page it also goes into his distinct voice and actually praises his musical abilities. It also mentions briefly how he knows how to "keep fans eating off the palm of his hands" which made me giggle a little. It was a very favourable article.

03-13-2007, 11:14 AM
This a new edition of kerrang then? Must be for the list to be such all over the place as that. Good to see Ginger included thought, even if it is only 86.

03-15-2007, 01:54 PM
amy lee numer 9
pete wenz number 14

while dexter is 73 and joe strummer is 70. This has got to be a fucking joke.
