It's fine if people want to listen to that crap, but don't call yourself punk while you're at it. Pawning that corporate money maker off as even remotely punk rock is an insult to all of those people who put out the zines, play in the bands, listen to the music, etc. Yes, it is still around. Oh, and Avril Lavine is definitely making it into a trend.

Shiny Toy Guns, Nirvana, and Bad Religion are my favorites. :]

Nirvana's considered "grunge/alternative" aren't they? Also way overrated.

Shiny Toy Guns aren't punk at all. And the only reason Nirvana is overrated is because everyone treats Kurt Cobain like he was some kind of god or something. I think all of their stuff is great...with the exception of Smells Like Teen Spirit.

I guess I just don't dig em, regardless of Kurt Cobain worshipers.
Not my kind of music...

Eh, I like Nirvana but they're definitely NOT punk. They were the band that defined the grunge genre.

My favorite punk bands (there's a lot): Municipal Waste, Cross Examination, Suicidal Tendencies, D.R.I., Dirtbag, Spitting On Cops, Extreme Noise Terror, Toxic Narcotic, Poison Idea, Negative Approach, Gang Green, Battalion Of Saints, Naked Aggression, The Subhumans (From Canada), Antischism, GG Allin and his various bands, Cryptic Slaughter, Nausea, Wasted Youth, Minor Threat, The f*ck Ups (80s SF band), Disfear, Cress, Fear, J.F.A., The Accused, Septic Death, Lethal Aggression, Man Is The Bastard, Youth Brigade (DC), Zounds, NOFX (Liberal Animation and S&M Airlines only), Amebix, Black Flag, Disclose, Discharge, Dischange (D-beat=good), The 4-Skins, Agnostic Front, Body Count, 25 Ta Life, Cro Mags, Agression, Jerry's Kids, Negative FX, Guttermouth (early), Extinction Of Mankind, Dr. Know, DS-13, Vitamin X, Blatz, Blitz, Bad Religion, Aus Rotten, Angry Samoans (Hardcore era, not the bs garage rock crap. PS f*ck METAL MIKE), Zyklome A, The Varukers, Avskum, Skitsystem (Again, more D-beat), The Misfits (only Earth AD. The other sh*t is grossly overrated in my book. Later era bootlegs before the first breakup are good as well. "Skulls", "Astro Zombies", etc. sound so much better sped up.), Napalm Death (same with ENT, GRIND IS PUNK), Pennywise (favorite damn band, always will be), Zero Boys, TSOL, Sublime, RATOS DE PORAO!!, Oi Polloi....

I could go on. Some bands are questionable in the definition of punk by some elitists (myself included). I must also state, that although I recognize their influence, I HATE THE RAMONES. I also hate every dumbass who justifies listening to Skrewdriver by citing their first album as the only one they listen to. You still support a racist band, jackass.

P.S. f*ck METAL MIKE!!!

Nirvana is punk. Grunge is an evolution of Hardcore.

I can't stand Social Distortion because all they do is sing the title of their songs over and over again.
