1st wave punk was the soundtrack of my youth

Back then "punk" could mean anything that wasn't mainstream MOR crap.
I dug all the Brit/Euro bands-



Also actively followed the SoCal scene and all the west coast punks like these guys-





Thanks for taking me back!

I'm not huge into the genre and caught on late, but I have a few offerings not yet posted.
These are a few that I dig personally.

Kennedy's

Danzig

Death

Rollins

Hope it suffices, great music by all so far.

🤘

Full disclosure I wasn't only a spectator back then. Started my first band in 1980. Here's a gawdawful sounding clip of us in '85 kicking off the annual Bar-to-Bar Christmas Run (yes they used to run to all the bars in town, have a drink, sing a Christmas carol then run to the next. At 7 a.m. on Sunday). The event lasted several years until liability lawyers and lawsuits killed it.

I love it all, old, new, sub genres (especially horror punk) ... Punk casts a wide net, as Underpass says! and I wouldn't have it any other way! 😎

Ex-skate punk here, I’m often surprised by people missing out on Agent Orange, or ever better:
The Cramps.

I had an affinity towards simple, fast music like The Ventures.

My mind was blown by the Ramones. Then I looked around at was happening...

Fear - Let’s Have a War



Circle Jerks - Coup d’Etat



Those were featured on the Repoman soundtrack. But I also listened to Black Flag, The DKs, X, some new wave bands like Talking Heads, and some skinny kids from Ireland.

We were about the same age and I went on to find things like Social Distortion and Violent Femmes.

Old school punk?! Hell yeah!

But now, just feeling old...

I saw the addicts like 10 years ago. They played with the misfits, the Uk subs, and Osaka pop stars. It was a great show. When the addicts did their set was was at the bar watching. And it was something to see beach balls bouncing of people’s Mohawks. Would love to see them again.

Back in the day, Trouser Press Magazine was the only rag that covered the international punk scene. I couldn't wait for each month's issue to show up. They even came with a flexi-45 single included.

They also published a punk rock record guide which is an incredible collection of music from that time. If you can find it I highly recommend grabbing it!
