    I'm into
    The Offspring (Self titled and Ignition)
    Bad Religion (Against the Grain and No Control)
    Blink 182 (Buddha and Cheshire Cat)

    etc

    Anyone have some good stuff to throw in?

    Very Proud of Ya, Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes and Answer That and Stay fashionable would be my recommendations if you prefer the punkier side of AFI.

    Dead Kennedys ( :bowdown: ) songs in particular: Police Truck, Too Drunk to Fuck, Insight, Soup is Good Food, Holiday in Cambodia.

    Bad Religion's album Suffer is also really good.

    Misfits, some good songs: Bullet, Last Caress, We Are 138, Where Eagles Dare.

    Is this a joke? With the exception of Propagandhi, none of this is old school nor punk.

    How can you say that none of that is punk?

    I'm judging this recommendation on what he said he already listens to, which is The Offspring, Bad Religion and Blink 182.

    Yeah, maybe I was interpreting the term "old school punk" too literally. When I think old school punk I think of original punk from the 80's and early 90's :dunno:

    Most of those bands from only a few years ago and, to me, borderline emo.

    Weirdly, out of the bands I listed, it's only really Propagandhi who don't define themselves as punk, I think I remember reading in an interview that they describe themselves as 'Progressive Thrash' whatever that means...

    Were Billy Idol's Generation X, Buzzcocks, Dickies etc. the sort of generation you were thinking of?

    punk was born in the 70's bro. The 80's shit wasn't original.

    See the way I see it, the foundation was built in the 70's but it really evolved into what we call punk in the 80's :dunno:
    Just my opinion.

    My bad, I meant old-school to mean "Bands that now suck"

    Didn't mean to offend anyone

    When did blink 182 not suck?

    When was offspring ever punk?


    While meaning not to offend anyone you did a good job of offending just about everyone, who matters at least.

    The Offspring were making music ten years before "Pretty Fly for a White Guy", I suggest you do your homework

    And no one's talking about All The Small Things, either

    While I might not be eager to classify Blink or The Offspring as punk, I don't necessarily disagree.

    To call either of them OLDSCHOOL punk, though, is blasphemous.

    I would call most of these bands hardcore, not punk.
    That being said, Black Flag, The Misfits, and Dead Kennedys ftmfw.
