I noticed that the majority of users on here listen to music that...well, that doesn't really butter my muffin, so to speak. So I was wondering, are there any fellow fans of genuine punk rock? I'm talking about the original founders. The Sex Pistols, The Clash...etc.
And I have to add, that Green Day, Sum 41 and Blink 182, etc. DO NOT COUNT AS PUNK. The genre of punk was officially laid to rest at the closing of the career of The Clash, which was in the early 80's. Those bands are, at best, pop punk.
And as a side note, any fans of the Manics or Echo & The Bunnymen, are you out there???? Just out of curiosity, since I don't find many fellow fans often.
If I posted this in the wrong part of the forums, I apologize. I'm new to forums in general, so I am completely lost.

Linking Park and Asking Alexandria are more post-hardcore. Which is the stuff I listen to.

I'm not really into Punk, but I do like a few Sex Pistol songs ^^.

I'm not to sure about Blink-182 being punk but it does come up as punk on itunes. I don't have the Sex Pistols on my ipod because I have it all on vinyl :-( sad times. I love Public Image Ltd. But I'm pretty sure their Indie rock. I just love John Lydon (when he was a younger)

The Stranglers I think were my favorite punk band.

I used to listen to a lot of Ian Drury & The Blockheads, Ultravox and Elvis Costello & The Attractions; the Pistols too - though I always found them a bit to "shouty" and out of tune :P
