What a surprise.
Someone at Shoutmouth wrote a piece on the top 25 Most Influential Punk Bands. I happen to appreciate or really love most of these bands. She included many hardcore and pop-punk bands. She also touches on many other bands that she decided to leave out of the top 25.
I thought it was well done, but holy crap The Ramones are overrated. Honestly, there were plenty of other bands springing up in New York City at the time of The Ramones. I think punk rock would still be alright if they had never existed. She failed to mention The Velvet Underground.
Check out the list. There are Youtube videos of just about every band to give you an idea of their sound and/or live performance.
