Goner Message Board / ???? / best punk band of the 21st century
Posted: Sep 17, 2005 6:17 pm
 
let the shit start to fly....as I have been lambasted on this site by not knowing what punk is by the enlightened...but my vote for the best punk band of the 21st century is...

The Reds...truly ass kickin' and proof you dont have to be a cripple on your instrument to make top shelf punk rock music. Their latest incarnation, the Marked Men are killer, but the Reds stuff kicks my ass every time I hear it.
Also dont sleep on their honky tonk country alter ego, The Mosier Valley Boys...not only can Mark tear up some loud stuff, but the dude is smoove on the lap steel as well.

buy all their records.now.

i must be gay....but that song smokeszzz balllllzzz
Posted: Sep 18, 2005 5:22 pm
 
Do the Reds count? I do like their records better than the Marked Men, though the live show is a push. I couldn't believe how good they were the first time I saw them (which was probably the worst time I saw them), and I couldn't believe that outside of a couple towns, no one came out to see them. Idjits! All the bands mentioned here are good. I'd like to add off the toppa my head the Carbonas, who just keep getting appreciably better every time they record something new.

id say Tyrades. Spits, Final Solutions, Carbonas, Catholic Boys,Black Lips, A-Frames are up there too. i think Marked Men are better than the reds.

The Spits II is the best punk album of the decade, by far.

I actually wrote a song for The Coke Machines the other day. It's a nice Stones rip-off called "This Could Be The Last Line."
Posted: Sep 19, 2005 5:02 pm
 
Of all the bands mentioned, only the Tyrades and Catholic Boys are worthy of this title in my opinion. Reds best of the decade? No. A-Frames are too weird to be punk. Black Lips don't really fit. Spits are played out. I need to hear the second Carbonas LP.

still good though
Posted: Sep 19, 2005 6:43 pm
 
Marked Men, Spits, Reds, one of those. They've got a few singles and at least 2 albums to figure out if they're any good.

Tom was talking about the Skuds.
Posted: Sep 19, 2005 6:58 pm
 
Marked Men? Took me one album to figure out they weren't.

True story, I told future mother in law that she had a lovely daughter. She picked up on my lame song reference and told me she hated that band, and loved Bon Jovi. Living on welfare.

Catholic Boys?! Wrong.

Whoa, BOLD text.. Somebody struck a nerve w/ this guy!

REAL LOSERS are my number one. Carbonas, Busy Signals, & Tyrades would be my next three off the top of my head.

Posted: Sep 19, 2005 9:11 pm
 
Well, that's the category under which I find said band in my Columbia Record And Tape Club catalog. They're right next to AC/DC.
Posted: Sep 19, 2005 9:12 pm

the Exploding Hearts and the Lost Sounds (just because Black Wave and Rats, Brains...)

then... Catholic Boys, Kidnappers and Real Losers (because of their second LP and latest 7"s, the first LP is very so-so)
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 1:50 pm
 
Rot Shit is the world's best punk band.
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 2:34 pm
 
The Kodiaks!!!!! They have a couple of singles out and they are totally the shit. To my ears, Oblivians sounding (yep two guitars and drums) but with might Yoshi on vocals screeching away. Suprised I haven't read more on the board about the Kodiaks since they are evil!!

I don't like the Kodiaks single on Yakisakana at all. I'd consider Lost Sounds one of the great bands of the 21st century, but for some reason I don't think of them as a punk band, whatever that means. A couple more Regulations records as good as "Survive in the City" would put them right up there.
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 5:04 pm

id say Tyrades. Spits, Final Solutions, Carbonas, Catholic Boys,Black Lips, A-Frames are up there too. i think Marked Men are better than the reds.

It's obvious we need to be married.
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 7:31 pm

Oh. And obviously someone who is no longer my friend. Heeeee-haaawww!! love you, Matt!

Gris Gris

I didn't think of them as "punk rock" per se, but they are a great band. They are one of those bands that is kind of unclassifiable in my opinion.

I guess I don't have my finger on the pulse anymore as I have not heard the Catholic Boys or the Black Lips yet. I need to get with the program, huh?
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 7:56 pm
 
OK, I changed my mind. You're right, Bazooka--Black Lips win. They're punk as fuck. And when I say the A-Frames are too weird to be punk, that's a compliment, not a put down. None of these bands are playing straight forward punk rock. They're all unique, which makes it difficult.

I never have cared for the Spits though. Sorry.
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 9:18 pm
 
OK, Who's the best one of the above live?

Again, I vote for Lost Sounds. And yes, I think that they are punk... just not typical punk.
Posted: Sep 20, 2005 9:22 pm
 
Spits just had their 10th anniversary show about a year ago, so they wouldn't really qualify for 21st century. Try harder!

The greatest 1976 sounding band of the 21st CENTURY! Wooh Whoo!!!!
Posted: Sep 21, 2005 12:33 am
 
Didn't mean that as a snub at any of the great new bands. Just don't see the point of being so definitive about the word "punk". 21st century denotes the present and future. I'm gonna say Lost Sounds. Plenty of nods to the punk of the past, but also a good snap shot of whats coming down the road.
