I would say yes, they were one of the most well known black punk groups and one of the best period. To be honest, they got me into reggae and hardcore punk and if anything both styles of music are polar opposites in both aesthetic and sound.

Being black has nothing to do with it. They made great music.

on the subject of black punk groups YouTube - PURE HELL
i dont know why you'd get your knickers in a twist about the race thing, it's only worth mentioning because punk has been such a predominantly white genre; answers as to why on a postcard. anyway Bad Brains were mental, great musicians and never afraid to switch it up with metal and reggae. big fat yes

Punk. Musically, not idealistically or however you might draw the conclusion that Public Enemy is punk.

It kind of makes me want to punch a baby knowing that porcupine tree got 10 votes and nickelback got 14.

Anyway on topic I voted yes, I don't see how the Bad Brains aren't worthy.

And they are black, big deal. It's not like if The Beatles were all black they'd be better to me. But I'm sure if the beatles were black I'd hear about it non stop.
