i mean, i "get" what punk is about for the most part. Im "hip" to what the sex pistols were saying with what they were doing on stage and off.... but shit, its almost unlistenable and definately indistinguishable IMHO. is there any punk that i might actytually want to listen to/ any suggestions? not that same kind of ramones style fast beer driven coke binged bull shit like two second tracks and motherfuckers sounding like school kids mad cuz the chocolate milk is spoiled for the day....?
im begging you guys for some directions to listenable punk rock music. (isnt BLONDIE actually a punk band?) i like them.

Yeah, Blondie is punk.
and it's alright, I really don't like the Sex Pistols or the Ramones too much.. I can dig some of their music, but for the most part, just not my thing.

It all depends on what you're looking for. Choking Victim and Leftover Crack are ska/punk, talk about doing drugs, drinking, and killing cops. Aus-Rotten is pretty fucking good. Bomb the Music Industry!.. Dead Kennedys. I can't stand Lower Class Brats, but a lot of people worship them.. MDC is pretty fucking good hardcore. Mistits. No Cash. Siouxsie and the Banshees. Star Fucking Hipsters. Streetlight Manifesto. Suicidal Tendencies. This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb.

You might like Voodoo Glow Skulls.. they're latin-style ska-punk. If you like them, then check out Ska-P, which IS latin ska punk. haha.

I agree with crust.
Bands like Leftover Crack/morning glory/choking victim/no cash/star fucking hipsters. Also, they don't only sing about killing cops/drinking/drugs. Leftover crack has some serious fucking songs. As do star fucking hipsters.

As far as the rest of the bands he listed. I don't know much other than MDC, dead kennedys and the misfits, and well I'm pretty sure almost everyone likes the misfits.

Sturgeon is a piece of shit. he was charging people insane amounts of money to crash at c-squat so he could support his raging dope addiction.

the misfits are toy shit. i don't know any punk that has any respect for them.

Sturgeon is a fucking douchebag, agreed. But he does have some good music. And the Misfits are definitely toy shit douchebags who make you pay 30 bucks to see them, at which they fucking suck asshole. I'm so glad I never went to that show. My friend's band did better than the Misfits.

I was giving something for NICCSACC to look into.

EDIT: Those of you into folk punk, check this guy out. He owns a squat in Rancho Cucamonga, used to put on a lot of shows (until a stupid fucking kid got alcohol poisoning and his friends didn't have the common sense to take him out of the house and away from it before calling the police and the ambulance), and is a generally awesome person. He also writes some pretty great music.

Suicidal Tendencies is a great example of a sort of crossover band. they are a great fusion of both punk and hardcore

haha, STZA. most irresponsible man in punk. Last time I say him he got on stage and refused to play until someone gave him whiskey, and then kept asking people between songs to smoke dust with him in the backyard. he ended up smoking with my friend, but anyways...silly fucker.

as is later D.R.I. and a couple other more thrashy crossover bands such as Municipal Waste or the Accused

Thrash/Punk crossover is always a good time. The shows are fucking insane.

I'm going to see Ceremony, Municipal Waste, 7 Seconds, and the Circle Jerks soon.

eh I used to love punk.... but in all actuality, punk in its pure form is dead. I mean I'll listen to some stuff once in a while. but you can hear punk's influence in all new music, from indy to alt. you can hear punk's influence.

Scream Out

punk in its pure for exists in dingey bars around the side of town you dont often want to be in and is kept alive by the younger generations with their heads on straight. i like to think my band is helping keep the spirit of some early hardcore punk bands alive as i would just as likely play for a few people than a few hundred, and im gona give it my fucking all no matter what the turnout is
in other words, look harder; anti-flag putting on shows sponsored by coka-cola sure as hell aint pure but some of us are still giving it our all out here

how come every music thread decends into people arguing about what it is and isn't? if you want a dictionary definition you know where to find it.

well NEW misfits suck ass...old misfits (Hollywood Babylon, Halloween, Skulls, etc.) are the shit. Unfortunately I was born too late..

Top few punk bands:

Black Flag
The Germs
Flipper
Weirdos

wow. very few people have even the slightest clue what punk is. sum 41, blink 182, misfits, rancid, sex pistols, and all that emo bullshit garbage is not punk. real punk= oxymoron, disturbance, blanks 77, the casualties (before the die hards album) old exploited, one way system, onward to mayhem, chaos uk, THE RESTARTS!!! all sick punk bands. Oi! is where its at anyway, brassknuckle boys, cock sparrer, the oppressed, the skinflicks. real punk- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xm2VuM0M_lU real oi!-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlhA22MHWOo general rule of thumb, if you heard it on the radio or saw it on tv ever in your life, its not punk

it's beyond me why people argue about what's punk and what isn't punk. the term punk is what ruins everything. It's fucking ridiculous to give a name to something as ambiguous as "punk". Just go to shows, support your local venue, support your favorite bands, you most likely pirate their shit, shoot them a few bucks, it really helps. Don't let this year be The Che Cafes last, do what you can to support your local scene, volunteer for fucks sake. :(

Necs from the book Graffiti Underworld: Villains, Vandals, and Visionaries:

"I originally got into graffiti when I was 13 and 14 years old. There was all this crazy shit like Metalica graffiti and old school Kiss stuff under bridges. My cousin lived near this bridge in the city we ended up going down there and I wrote my name. I dated it 87'. I knew nothing about graff, but hanging out under a bridge with somebody felt like home so why not write your name there. That's how I started out. We were skating a lot at the time. My friend was like "This band Black Flag, you have to see them play!" We ended up at this show and there were crazy people all over. I was just a young clean cut kid that liked to skateboard. We snuck into the show and it was so surreal being in a spot where everyone was twice my size. All these maniacs were killing each other in this crazy pit. I was thinking to myself "How can the world hold so much mayhem." That is a lot of what influenced me with graff at the time, being rebellious. Saying what you want to say and doing what you want to do where you want to do it, without any restraints. That show was one of my first experiences of pure lawlessness. There were a bunch of crazy ass skinheads there taunting Rollin's on stage. The band stopped three or four times. The pool table got overturned and the owner of the club came out and started shooting holes in the ceiling with a shotgun."
