To OP - Black Flag, The Descendents and ALL are great, too. Pennywise is still kickin. Sorry, can't really help ya on the ska, not my thing, I'm more
into aggressive street punk like the exploited, the casualties or the virus.
The Distillers are no more, but Brody Dalle does her own thing these days.
Mmmmmmkay brody.... sorry sorry head out of the gutter lol
Don't tell any one I'm not a nofx fan I know I know it's almost blasphemy kinda like not being an op ivy fan..... lol
I get down on all sorts from east coast irish/ hard core to west coast pop/ and political I'm all over the board lol.
What j really should have questioned in all this is where does everyone think punk started lol thst could have stirred a lively debate ha ha ha.
To voice my opinion it was the velvet underground that started the punk revolution them and we'll there like such as the dead boys, iggy pop,
television and so on and so forth...oh and this little band you might not have heard of the Ramones lol

How could I forget my old high school buddy Mike Wiebe and his band.. The Riverboat Gamblers.. Check out the tune Ice Water, for a more modern pop
even while making fun of candy pop punk the song The Biz Loves Sluts... They are a really good band.
Oh and if I didn't mention them before "A Wilhelm Scream" for the fastest tightest fist pumping buddy punk the songs Anchor End and Picture of The
World. My sons favorite is Dreaming of Throwing Up. Also of note are The Rip and Bulletproof Tiger are are viscious as they sound... Can't say enough
I hate that when you think of CKY freaking doucher Bam Margera comes to mind, because they too are a really good band. Along with Red Fang though I
don't know if the title punk is right for them, along with Viking Skull. Both of those last two leave a mark, kind of that punch in the gut rock and
roll ala Clutch and Wolfmother.
You can't find their stuff but Richard Noggin was the best live punk show I've ever seen, they played two shows and then vanished leaving a scar on

Been listening to Punk since '77 and Ska from about '79.
Guess it all began with watching The Stranglers famous appearance on Top of the Pops singing Go Buddy Go.
A couple of weeks or so later my older bought The Bollocks and The Clash albums - that was it I was hooked.
I quickly became familiar with The Damned, UK Subs, SLF along with bands like The Angelic Upstarts etc.
In the early 80's saw me listening to Cock Sparrer, The Exploited, Cockney Rejects, Blitz, The 4-Skins etc - I still listen to a lot of Oi.
At the same time I also liked Crass, Zounds, The Mob, Poison Girls, Flux of Pink Indians and of course Discharge.
My love of Punk lasts to this day and barely a day goes by when I don't listen to an album or playlist of it.
American bands I've listened to over the years include Social Distortion, Dead Kennedys and even The Offspring as well as Rancid, Dropkick Murphy's
and Harrington Saints.
I've seen the vast majority of those bands mentioned live and all are well worth a listen.
Like most people of my generation my first exposure to Ska came with the 2-Tone invasion round about '79.
Many great bands and music came from the 2-Tone scene but without a doubt The Specials were, and still are, just that - special.
This video catches them perfectly - great days.
My involvement in the Scooter scene and certain other 'activities' saw me listening to a lot of Trojan music - something I still do to this day.
