About pop-punk: I think depending on the band it can be true punk. Hell, the Ramones were EXTREMELY poppy, no one calls them poseurs. I agree that blink-182 and FOB and shit are distinctly un-punk, but I think Green Day could be called punk from '87 to '97.

As for my worst punk bands:
The Exploited
blink-182
Sum 41
Nerf Herder
Casey Jones (they've got one good song though, I like Hammer the Nails).

they suck........and for the record reggae kicks ass as well as the bad brains
If you are linking Exploited with Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy I think your opinion no longer matters. I was with you until you listed a band that played an integral part in the punk scene. Kind of makes me question as to whether or not you have actually listened to them and what the rest of your music collection looks like.

Ok. Well i kinda like green day. The first four albums were fantastic. After that... ehhhh. Blink 182 sucks cock. Anybody who calls fall out boy punk, has issues. PUNK is black flag, the sex pistols, the dead kennedys ect.

Are you stupid? Your comparing punk from back then to now. Punk is punk and learn to fucking like it. If you really liked punk you would like every band and song. And if you think those bands arent punk... You dont know punk at all. Plus punk these days has a total different meaning

If anyone says black flag or misfits are anything less than 2 of the greatest punk rock bands, that person knows nothing about what punk is. It is about not giving a flying fuck about what others think (and embracing the fact that people hate us) and Black Flag and early Misfits personify that perfectly. Why is punk so great? Because people hate us and we don't give a shit. I feel that people have forgotten the rock n roll in punk rock.

IT'S NOT F*CKING PUNK! FOR F*CK SAKES! LISTEN TO THE OLD SHIT , BY THAT i MEAN ACTUAL PUNK YOU STUPID F*CKING IDIOTS!!
now, I'm sorry if that is offensive but when I hear them being called punk I get offended. So live with it.
second:
the bes in my opinion are
The clash
The RAMONES
the Sex Pistols
The Dead Kennedys
NOFX
Dropkick Murphys
Rancid
and all the other actual punk stuff, the stuff that deserves to be listened to!
and third:
I don't mind reggae but I prefer ska so much more then reggae. There is a reason why the clash is first but the Ramones and the clash switch places a lot and stuff so yeah. Reggae is okay but I rather not hear it XD anyways yeah...
In conclusion:
Learn what real punk is and stop trying to say your sh*tty pop-soft crappy stuff is punk. Just because they call themselves punk, and pretend to have an attitude does mean that they are punk. The proof is that when you go to a clash concert ( well they are dead and you cannot see them anymore because strummer died :\ If mick dies I think I might cry :\) or a Ramones concert ( again dead) or a pistol's concert ( no longer together :\) you always end up with either a huge ass event where the guards are needed for something use full unlike not letting you on the stage, or broken seats. you never get that at those concerts. and listen to the bands mentioned by the people who called those poser bands sh*t. Then maybe you will be respectable in my books... or atleast learn that it is !!!NOT!!! punk!
Thank you for your time,

You, sir, are a poseur. I'm all for true punk, and for hating on bands like Blink that spike their hair and overdrive their guitars to seem "punk", but you're trying so hard to prove that you're t0tez punx that it's laughable.

Personally, blink is one of my favorite bands, and I think that no band can be shit, it just depends on the taste of the listeners music.

Most of you are so wrong. Green Day is not punk, but they are not bad either. Green Day shouldn't even be on this list because they are no longer punk, and they don't consider themselves to be punk. They are a great rock band but that's it. They aren't, and pretty much never were, much of a punk band.

If you're searching the bands on Wikipedia and reading that they're punk bands... Then you're just stupid. Dying your hair, getting depressed and suicidal and wearing eyeliner isn't punk.

Okay. I don't mean to piss anyone off but I know real punk when I hear it, see it and read about it. This includes bands such as the Sex Pistols, Ramones, The Clash, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, Rancid, Minor Threat, Fugazi, you get the idea. I haven't really heard a real punk band since their era (well from their era, I actually wasn't alive sadly lol). So when I heard about these modern day "punk" bands like Fall out boy, all time low, etc I was excited, expecting something similar to the Clash or Ramones or Black Flag (cause those are my faves) only to be dissapointed of how light and pop-ish it was. And not to sound pretentious but I also am a huge classic rock fanatic and I love to have my Beatles, Loop Zoop, CCR, The Who, Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix fix and I love 90s grunge (Nirvana). To me, that's what real music sounds like. Rock bands now (except for like Foo Fighters and QOSTA cause Dave Grohl is a true rocker) just really aren't the same. It was all about the music, not looks and shit (Kurt cobain is a great representation of that even though he just happened to be really hot). People like me say that they don't like "Poser punk" bands and it makes people mad and when they ask me why I'd choose let's say the Ramones over Fall out boy it's cause they sold music, not image.
