out of all mentioned i think i like the clash the best. i do like anarchy in the uk by the pistols. overall though punk just don't do it for me. i tend to lean more towards bands with good musicianship and in my personal opinion punk just don't have it.
i'm not saying it's like that across the board but mostly. have to give it to them for their raw power though.
honerable mention to iggy and the stooges

Ahh man,I was a massive pistols fan when I was a teenager.Never mind the bollox was one of the best albums ever and Steve Jones always had great fat tone with his les Paul.I had at the time all the pistol stuff i could get my hands on from bootleg live recordings to funny radio clips of theres when they were touring states side
steve jones on live radio(heres a weather forcast for you,its fkn pissing it down out side)lol
or his classic bill grundy coments!you dirty old man!lol
Still one of the best bands ever to grace this planet,they might not have had the musical chops but boy could they belt out classic tunes and covers when needed
Rock n Roll swindle is a film I must have watched about 30 times,as I idolised good old Sidney at that time and dressed the same(minus the nazi tshirts)
Never liked the clash,they were not rock enough for me with the guitars lacking that classic marshall stack and gibson sound
Used to like other punk bands like the Exploited,UK subs,The Conflict and Peter and the test tube babies(they were a fun band!)All my mates were into GNR at that time and i couldnt get into those hairspray bands
but anyway Steve Jones rocks,I learnt every pistol song on guitar and in fact I learnt power chords to No Feeelings.Long live the pistols

Another of my favourites are Cock SParrer and I'm thinking about going to Girona to see them next month.
