PostSubject: ESSENTIAL PUNK ALBUMS   Wed Aug 12, 2009 2:13 pm

Not enough love for the early punk albums on this forum so I thought I would make up this thread to educate you all in what punk albums are a must for any music collection.

RAMONES by the Ramones

Essential Punk Album number 1...This amazing album was the debut album by the greatest ever punk band the Ramones. It was released in 1976 and contains 14 tracks that all squeeze into half an hour.

Key Tracks: Blitzkrieg Bop, Beat On The Brat, 53rd and 3rd.


LONDON CALLING by The Clash

Essential Punk Album number 2...London Calling is the third and the best album released by The Clash. The album came out in 1979 and ranks at number 8 on the Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

Key Tracks: London Calling, Train In Vain, Guns of Brixton


NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, HERE'S THE SEX PISTOLS by the Sex Pistols

Essential Punk Album number 3...Talentless losers or Kings of Punk Rock, never mind what you think of the Sex Pistols, this album will always be known as one of the greats of punk. Released in 1976 it remains the only official studio album the controversial punkers ever released.

Key Tracks: Anarchy in the UK, Holiday in the Sun, God Save The Queen


FRESH FRUIT FOR ROTTING VEGETABLES by the Dead Kennedys

Essential Punk Album number 4...This is the debut album by the Dead Kennedys, it was released in 1980. These guys were the pioneers of hardcore punk!

Key Tracks: California Uber Alles, Let's Lynch the Landlord, Holiday in Cambodia


WALK AMONG US by the Misfits

Essential Punk Album number 5...The Kings of Horror Punk released this album in 1982. Its an awesome album full of some of the greatest hardcore punk tracks ever.

Key Tracks: Mommy Can I Go Out & Kill Tonight?, Skulls, Astro Zombies


PUNK IN DRUBLIC by NOFX

Essential Punk Album number 6...Not only is the album cover awesome but so is every song on here. Easily NOFXs best album and highest selling. This 1994 release was certified gold without even getting any radio play.

Key Tracks: Linoleum, Don't Call Me White, The Brews


SMASH by The Offspring

Essential Punk Album number 7...released in 1994, it was this album that got The Offspring mainstream attention. 15 years since its release it is now seen as a classic punk album that bridges the gap between old school punk and mainstream punk.

Key Tracks: Come Out and Play, Self Esteem, Gotta Get Away


ROCKET TO RUSSIA by the Ramones

Essential Punk Album number 8...another album from the legendary Ramones. This album was released in 1977 and was the Ramones 3rd album. 14 songs in just over 31mins

Key Tracks: Sheena is a Punk Rocker, Cretin Hop, Teenage Lobotomy


DOOKIE by Green Day

Essential Punk Album number 9...despite what has become of this band (the sell-out status that has been put upon them) there in no denying the greatness of this album. This album came out in 1995 shortly after the death of Kurt Cobain. With the end of Cobain many beleived Green Day, with the help of this album, would take the place of Nirvana as "the teen band"

Key Tracks: When I Come Around, Basketcase, Welcome To Paradise

NO CONTROL by Bad Religion

Essential Punk Album number 10...Remains one of the best selling punk albums. Released in 1989 it was Bad Religions 4th album and my personal favourite of theirs.

Key Tracks: You, Big Bang, I Want To Conquer the World


THE CLASH by The Clash


Essential Punk Album number 11...the self titled album by The Clash was their first full lenght album. Released in 1977 it managed 77th spot on the Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums

Key Tracks: Remote Control, White Riot, Londons Burning


ENERGY by Operation Ivy

Essential Punk Album number 12...the most important album of the ska punk genre, without it ska would not be what it is today! The only LP released Operation Ivy came out in 1989

Key Tracks: One of These Days, Knowledge, Vulnerability


...AND OUTCOME THE WOLVES by Rancid

Essential Punk Album number 13...an album with a heavily ska influence, it was released in 1995 and remains Rancids best seller. It helped revive mainstream interest in punk rock in the mid '90s

Key Tracks: Time Bomb, Roots Radicals, Maxwell Murder


ENEMA OF THE STATE by Blink-182

Essential Punk Album number 14...this album is as hot as the nurse on the front cover. Released in '99 it remains the second highest selling pop punk album of all time, behind Dookie. My teenage years wouldn't have been the same without it.

Key Tracks: What's My Age Again?, Mutt, All The Small Things


FULL CIRCLE by Pennywise

Essential Punk Album number 15...dedicated to Pennywise bassist Jason Thrisk who commited suicide months before the album was released. This Pennywise album was released in 1997.

Key Tracks: Society, Fight Till You Die, Bro Hymn (Tribute)


INFLAMMABLE MATERIAL by Stiff Little Fingers

Essential Punk Album number 16...Northern Island punk band Stiff Little Fingers debut studio album. Epic album best listened to LOUD!!!

Key Tracks: Suspect Device, Wasted Life, Barbed Wire Love


Well there you have it, the punk albums I think everyone should own, these aren't the only ones, just I cant be bothered doing any more!

LONG LIVE PUNK ROCK!!

Haha when I'm at work I definitely have too much time on my hands.

Pennybridge Pioneers was about to get a mention but I finished work, its an awesome album.

I was also hoping to include some Social Distortion but couldn't decide on what album. Dropkick Murphys, I would of gone with Blackout

Other bands that I could have possibly thrown in there are, Black Flag, The Suicide Machines, Stooges, Anti-Nowhere League and Flogging Molly.

and Damo, Static Age is an awesome album, just not as good as Walk Among Us

I used to like it about 3 years ago. But my mates killed it and I got sick of it. Like The Angel is still a quality track though.
