It's a slow day doing nothing;

any army.ca members fans of good old (real) punk music? It's wierd when alot of the music in 180 degrees opposite to my political views (punk music is political music) but regardless, it's what I grew up on.

So let's hear it from the punk/oi/harcore fans out there. I'll start;

Dropkick Murphys
Street Dogs
Social Distortion
Cock Sparrer
Hudson Falcons
King Size Braces
Angels, Saints and Heros
Bloody Irish Boys
Blood or Whisky
Barstool Hooligans
Pennywise
the Offspring
the Mahones
the Dead Kennedys

Come on folks, I know theres some of you around here.

Black Flag
Bad Brains
Minor Threat

I don't think that listening to music that is 180 to your personal views is odd at all.  I think that allowing yourself to be told what to do, as CF members are, is different than being an unwilling victim of a 'big brother' type, even if it is just in your own head.

Bad Religion
Queens of the Stone Age
Flogging Molly(bit softer, but still good stuff)
Anti-Flag(for that extreme leftist view)
The Atari's
Sum 41
Billy Talent
Rise Against
Pearl Jam(if not really punk, not far off)
Green Day
Alexisonfire


Mostly I prefer more along the old pop-punk lines like Blink-182, older Green Day and the like, however there is a lot of good stuff out there that harsher.

Old?  Come now!  I'm talking groups such as:
Discharge
Iggy and the Stooges
The Dead Kennedys (mentioned already, but worth a second look)
The Go-Gos (prior to their "pop" phase)

YOUR bands, as mentioned, are 90's version of "punk".  Forget Avril Levigne et al, and never mind the Bollocks!

Well, I didn't live in the time. But I sure listen to it. There are a couple repeats here but a lot of what I listen to.

- Real Mckenzies
- The Descendants (Anyone?)
- No Means No
- Black Flag
- Dead Kennedy's
- Bad Brains
 
As for the bands I listen to a lot these days, its mostly Dropkick Murphy's, Flogging Molly, and Against Me!.

Sham 69

Skrewdriver - hope I spelled that right

Souxie and the Banshees

I do gotta mention DOA, saw them in '89, played a pub called The Venue in Regina. That song Where Evil Grows, an ole Poppy Family (Terry and Susan Jacks) tune, they reinvented it, ha.

That night, got pissed as a parrot, blackspot drunkeness, nearly OD'd on my Uncle Ronnie's moonshine.

The Forgotten Rebels, bloody legends, even today I have a CD with all those crazy lyrics. Bomb the Boats, ha!

Nice, I was wondering if there were any military folk out there that listened to punk rock.  Cool to see that there are.  I profess to being a bit of a punk rocker (I wonder what the guys at the RC thought of me when I walked in? I looked a little misplaced).  I'm mostly into hardcore and ska-punk, but I like some of the other sub-genres like Oi! and psychobilly.  I'm also a vocalist in my own psychobilly/punkabilly band 'Teenage Zombie Elvis'.

Dead Kennedys
TSOL
Operation Ivy
Ramones
Adolescents
Buzzcocks
Black Flag
The Clash
Misfits
Social Distortion
Bad Religion
Rancid
SNFU
The Specials (yeah they're ska, but worth mentioning)
Cockney Rejects

More recent bands I like-
Flogging Molly
Dropkick Murphys
The Matadors (excellent Canadian psychobilly band)
The Creepshow (another homegrown psychobilly band)
The Alley Dukes (Canadian rockabilly/punkabilly band)
Cheap Suits (local Canadian ska band)

(to Ex_RCAR_011- Actually, Skrewdriver in their early years weren't associated at all with National Front or any other extreme right organization.  The other original members of the band left when the singer began associating with NF and British Movement a little later and all of them have since stated that they didn't believe in his far right leanings)

I prefer Tchaikovsky, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Bach, and Mozart, myself.

Started as a kid with old Beatles albums, moved on to U2, The Alarm, and New Model Army in the 80's. Then to Exploited, Dead Kennedys etc.

Nowadays - almost anything goes - Bach & Mozart, nothing like Glen Miller or the Dorsey Brothers, and ever since I married a Jamaican - lots of The Right Honourable Robert Nesta Marley!
