The TOP TEN Best American bands of the 80s:

Pixies

The Replacements

Minutemen

R.E.M.

Butthole Surfers

Sonic Youth

Cmaper Van Bethoven

Husker Du

Jane's Addiction

Dinosaur jr.

this is off the top of my head...who am I missing?

I'd suggest that pretty much every one of these "best American bands of the 80s" was influenced to some reasonable degree by the punk rock which the Sex Pistols "exploited and killed".

But then, what do I know?

Also: I'd have put the Dead Kennedys in there, probably instead of The Replacements.

And I'd try and find room for Big Black. :-)
