hey little Rascal, welcome to Songfacts :)

you might be interested in this thread, where our resident punk expert started to give us insight into some more or less known punk bands ;)

btw, 'dinosaurs' could refer to them being big and old (=classic), that doesn't have to be something bad (*completely ignoring the other adjective*)

the german band Fettes Brot calls themselves "hip hop dinosaurs" because they're one of the earliest bands like that here :)

Yeh, I coulda included the Dead Kens but I only had 10 slots to fill & I'd rather have the Germs or X! LA Punk doesn't rattle my stick! Too derivitive and doesn't speak to Me the Way Patti Smith & The Saints do.

Their FIRST single "California, Uber alles" was released in June 1979 so they were (though not technically I admitt) more an 80's Phenomena!

MC5? Ummm, "Legs" Armstrong coined the term "Punk" as a name for for his Magazine that was covering the Music that was coming outta CBGB's and MC 5 were'nt a part of that.

Theres so many bands I coulda included but I didn't! I won't (or can't be bothered) justifying every ommittion! I said "feel free to critisize" and I meant it. It's a Dull world when every-one agrees on everyphink!

I described the Eagles, P'k Floyd...ETC! as Dinosaurs and Crap because I think they are OLD BIG, Extinct and as relevant to Modern Times as a Brontosaurus...oooops (an Apatosaurus) wood Be.

"Take it easy", "Witchy Woman" and the whole of their "Eponymous album" should only be sold on Prescription because it's such a strong sleeping Potion! Desparado? Well, they can "still out ridin fences" for eternity (or longer!) as far i'm concerned. Hotel california. What the Frq'n Hell is that song on about? I (not being an Uber Rich celeb') relate to it,.. HOW???

Pink Floyd? Great Cover Art! "Psychadelic 70's Art-Rock?"...."Just say NO!" btw, "The Wall"'s "Fan-Band Alienation" theme was inspired by the singer Spitting on a Fan at an Stadium Gig! "Money" and Comfortalbly NUMB!" ...Nough Said.

Anyway, Thats my opinion! I'm entitled/and stick'n to it!

Btw,1, I've NEVER taken to popular ( A.K.A.. Lowest Common Denominator) Music and hope I NEVER Will!

BTW,2 Thanx for the Hello, Farin!!

Cheers to You!!!

BTW,3 (I HATE the Beatles too! Boo!! Hiss!!!!)

why don't you calm down a bit; everybody can express their opinion here, it doesn't matter if any people shouldn't agree with it :)

but in one thing Mindcrime is right, this thread belongs more into music discussion, it will get moved there as soon as a Forum Mod shows up, but that's really just a minor thing ;)

...unlike 1970s punk, you mean?

It's 2009; get a grip, man.

I'm spending the next three days at an all-weekend Punk-fest, 200+ bands. That's a lot of punk rock. I'm as punk as f**k, with an iron constitution, but I'm not sure even I will be able to withstand it. (The incentive of Killing Joke on Sunday night should keep me going.) But I will be surrounded (mostly) by paunchy middle-aged geezers. And I'm not going to pretend it's the most happening or relevant event of the 21st Century so far.

I blazed onto this site about 4 years ago with an observation very similar to this fella's. Well, alright; mine was probably delivered with a lot more panache. But the sentiment was kind of similar. What I complained of was that there didn't seem to be much acknowledgement of all the great music made from the punk-era onwards. I thought things had changed for the better on that front, but maybe I was mistaken.

Whatever; it seems a bit ironic to complain about the site being too conservative, then immediately harp on about punk music from 30+ years ago.
