I understand that punk isn't for everyone, so screw you, as the punks say.
Number one: Rancid.
These guys rock me on every level. They rock. They ain't pretty. They are real. Thanks. Oh yeah, they are all still alive.
Number two: The Clash. The late Joe Strummer and Mick Jones wrote and played some amazing music.
Number three:The Sex Pistols.
They started it. Total eff you to society. For some reason they struck a chord with me. Maybe it was because of the whole fake American Dream thing(read mothers killing their kids in Texas today).
