Damn, Greg's voice is great live.

He's just completely one with the music. His voice is a great match for the melodic sound they brought to punk

AngrilyEatingMuffins, in In your opinion, what is the single most influential punk album?

Dookie but not in a good way

aloeha,

No way lmao I’m a huge green day fan but they wouldn’t be a thing if it weren’t for other albums (I agree with others that it’s probably Ramones by Ramones).

Now if we are talking about pop punk then it’s undoubtedly Dookie.

How much punk have you heard in mainstream music vs pop punk. More people think of Green Day than the Sex Pistols, sadly.

aloeha,

Punk and pop punk are the main two genres I listen to, and I listen to all kinds of shit in both genres, both mainstream stuff and more niche/indie stuff.

To be honest, Nevermind probably has had more of an impact on punk and pop punk than Dookie, just introducing alternative music to the mainstream as a whole. Stylistically? Not at all. But from the perspective of introducing music more like that to the world, Nirvana is your band.

Ramones - Ramones

For me it’s The Ramones debut album. This set the standard for punk rock in it’s early days and made a huge impact in the UK, influencing other iconic bands like The Clash, The Sex Pistols etc

Love this band. Also, that Foundation shirt. 🫡

I've been to so many shows that it's hard to say, but the Bane reunion in Boston this past weekend was probably the most chaotic show I've been to in years. I've seen them so many times over the last 25 years, but that one was special.

I was a massive KISS fan in 1977, and around 1978 I got into Ska along with my buddy Paul. That summer, Paul went to England with his parents and brought me back a bunch of albums, like the Sex Pistols, Never Mind the Bullocks, and the Clash, "The Clash". But it was Black Flag's, "Nervous Breakdown" that got me fully into the punk scene here in Los Angeles.

I'm still active in the scene, and still see shows.

Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Circle One, and Public Nuisance at Devonshire Downs in 1982. HR went off the rails, backflipping into the crowd, still holding his mic and singing. In between songs, he would smoke a bong load. And the pit was insane.

The one that stands out for me somewhat recently was the Blasting Room 25th Anniversary show in 2019. Descendents, ALL, Rise Against and A Wilhelm Scream, the bands were on point, the sets were amazing, and the crowd was good.

ninetynine, in Best/favorite live punk show?

I saw NOFX (amazing), Frenzal Rhomb (very good) and the Candy Snatchers (not too bad) in 2001. I know there are some people who view NOFX as kind of a joke (some might say the band does too) but they put on a phenomenal show.

Darthmalak135, in What were the first three albums that really got you into punk rock?

As someone who got into punk in the last few years it wasn't necessarily albums given the ability to stream individual songs, however, the three largest influences were probably Everything Goes Numb by Streetlight Manifesto, Dookie, and War on Errorism by NOFX
