Not strictly punk, but heavily influenced by it. They are also my favourite band of the last 20 years so there’s that

Contains the immortal verse:

«All your favourite songs wouldn’t seem all that sad, if you weren’t so depressed.
Elliot Smith seems like a mess to me,
And you cry way too easily»

And reference Lesley Gore’s «It’s my party (and I’ll cry if I want to)» at the end.

I was actually kidding when I told you that. But I think maybe I only thought of that because you did. (Unless you where pulling my leg).

I remember seeing these guys on local cable access, in the early to mid 80s.....

That's pretty cool @scooter I never saw anything cool like that on tv. Kinda reminds me of very early Husker Du...

If I had to pick only one album I could listen to for the rest of my life it'd be this one.

It's spring of 1981, I'm 12, and listening to bands like Styx, Triumph, and Van Halen. One day, a kid who lives on the next block tells my brother and I to come over and listen to a new album. Yes, vinyl. That day, things changed, forever. The first song.....

Nothing like a bit of old school metal @scooter. If you fancy it check out an album by The Sword called Gods of the Earth. It was released in 2008 but they manage to pull off an amazing retro metal sound.

I always find it interesting to hear how people got into whatever their favourite genre of music is. In my case, as in yours, I discovered metal with a couple of friends in school. I was 9 when the Black Album was released but I never got beyond Metallica, Maiden, Megadeth and the likes until a friend lent me "Alive in Athens" in 1999 or 2000. I still enjoy their old stuff but for a number of reasons, not all related to the quality of the music, I've lost interest.

Anyway, moving on from there these followed pretty quickly:




Too bad they've become unlistenable in the last 15 years imo



and many more since then
