    I would also put The Who in the top 10 greatest Rock Bands of all time.

    Do you mean technically as in how well they can play, the quality of their written music and lyrics, or personally as in how they good they sound to you? Because honestly, The Ramones were horrible in the technical aspect of music. Joey Ramone himself had the famous quote that he only knew three chords, and lyrics were hardly that brilliant - and I say that with Pet Cemetary as one of my favorite songs ever.

    No punk band can ever attest to being truly great musicians accept The Who and maybe The Clash. But all classic punk is fun and a lot of it actually has meaning.

    Modern punk, and modern music in general, sux.

    I wish that people knew about them, but they're gone now and hopefully people will eventually give the respect they deserved

    Obviously. But it's quite obvious, to me at least, that NOFX, Bad Religion, etc. were much more varried than the Ramones in their melodies, solos, etc. Not to mention their lyrics, generally, had more meaning.
    When did NOFX (started in 1983) and Bad Religion (started in 1980) become modern punk?

    Well CConn, I just assumed they were modern since I'm sure the bulk of their best stuff came from 1998 and beyond, back when music really started going down the drain.

    They are proabbly known as modern punk because their height of popularity was the mid90s when pop-punk kinda began, but they decided not to take the major label route like Green Day and The Offspring did, and maintained a lot of respect and credibility for it. And some of the early NOFX (eg. Maximum Rocknroll) was pretty much unlistenable

    I was actually looking up a pic around the time you wrote that

    I couldn't find one that I liked that didn't have to be resized :(

    I guess I'll have to give you a high five

    So you aren't even familiar with bands? :o

    They've been releasing records almost bi-yearly ever since they started, so no, I don't believe most of their records to have come out after '98. The absolute newest band I listed was Rancid which started up in '91.
