    Posted: September 03 2013 at 22:33
In the template of one-album-per-band lists, I decided to start a thread for punk. What are your favorite punk albums? I mean punk as far as punk goes— punk to post-punk to hardcore to post-hardcore. As long as it's in the punk tradition. Again, one album per band. Here goes:

1. The Fall— Wonderful and Frightening World Of
2. The Cure— Faith
3. This Heat— Deceit
4. Sonic Youth— EVOL
5. Killing Joke— What's this for...!
6. Chrome— Alien Soundtracks
7. Women— Public Strain
8. Television— Marquee Moon
9. Drive Like Jehu— Yank Crime
10. Siouxsie and the Banshees— Juju

[Alpha order]

Cap'n Jazz- [album with really long title]
Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy (that can be counted as punk, right?)
Converge - Jane Doe
Circle Takes the Square - As the Roots Undo
Crash of Rhinos - Distal
Depeche Mode - Some Great Reward
Drive Like Jehu - s/t
Indian Summer - Science 1994
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Naked City - Naked City

As you can see, I'm really not well-versed in "pure" punk and tend to enjoy the offshoots and more modern stuff. I've just never really found punk on its own very interesting.

Same. Post-punk has become one of my favorite genres period.

I do want to explore more "pure" punk, though.

Most of the main punk acts have never interested me. From what I know, the entire movement was too focused on image and not music. Which is fine, but now the music is hard for me to appreciate when I listen to songs about rebellion remastered and re-released 40 years later through some giant label (I'm looking at you, Sex Pistols).

Then there's The Ramones and I hate The Ramones.

Sooooooo many, but off the top my head:

The Stooges - Raw Power
The Chameleons - Script OF The Bridge
Wire - Chairs Missing
Buzzcocks - A Different Kind Of Tension
Ian Dury - New Boots And Panties!
The Raincoats - s/t
Suicide - s/t
Dead Kennedys - Plastic Surgery Disasters
Chrome - Half Machine Lip Moves
The Gun Club - Miami

Special mention to Joy Division, which I purposely chose to leave out of the equation. Never really thought of em as "punk" per se. Morbid romanticism perhaps....

Good choice...I don't know exactly how one would classify The Stranglers but they fit in these punk lists rather well Thumbs Up

I like Siouxsie and The Banshees and The Stranglers and have compilation albums. I also own XTC and PIL albums but don't like them as much.

Do people here actually listen to Crass?!Shocked

To do one while not doing the other is the province of masochists.
