    Wow. I don't think I can name 5! I don't listen to much punk, although I do have a few songs from game soundtracks

    Bad Religion
    Pennywise
    Outer Circle
    H2O
    Lagwagon

    I'm sure I have more in my library, but nothing comes to mind :)

    Dead Kennedys
    Propagandhi

    NOFX
    Rancid
    Lars Fredrickson and the Bastards
    Operation Ivy??
    MxPx??

    Not sure if those last two qualify. Please don't flame me if they aren't.
    The truth is I don't really listen to hard core punk rock much,:eek: but I have a few songs of those guys in my iTunes Library so there you go.

    Bad Religion

    um...
    Don't really listen to much punk. I find it hard to like popular stuff 'cuz I find it takes away from the punk ideology (Blink 182, Greenday etc). I'd probably just class the above as plain old rock in my mind.

    The Offspring, SMASH. Dude, I have to wear a diaper when I listen to that album, I get too excited! Largest selling album from a private label. 11 million records sold worldwide by Epitaph. Mr. Brett from Bad Relligion owns Epitaph. I actually got to meet him after a show in Hollywood.

    that is all, I never was very hardcore punk. The Police's first album had some fairly odd stuff.

    I know I know Bad Religion and Rancid. I'm guessing I know NOFX. And Pennywise. But I'm not too sure 'cause I'm not good w/ names. :eek:

    That said, I only know a couple of their songs and haven't heard them since a friend made me a mixed tape (yes, tape as in cassette tape) years ago w/ Nerf Herders on it. I like them. :D

    My band supported Lars & the Bastards a couple of years back. They were a joke! 4.5 hours to sound check, meaning us and the other support couldn't do a sound check and had to do a line check. They had a HUGE soundboard with about 96 channels on it, plus a seperate monitor mixer all for a venue with a capacity of 600.

    Musically the stuff they played during the sound check was much better than the stuff they did for the show!

    anyhoo, I digress:

    my favs:

    Dead Kennedys
    Black Flag (Pre- Rollins)
    Operation Ivy
    The Damned
    TSOL

    Although not strictly punk rock:
    The Cramps
    Minor Threat
    Embrace (the Dischord band, not the **** that's around today)

    Devilot - The only Nerf Herders I've ever heard is the Buffy theme tune!

    Ruining Johnny's Bar mitzwah, is a classic. Not really punk, but as enjoyable as the Living End. Aussie rockabilly punk.
