Oh, that's easy: Crass.

Even Penny admitted they were a bunch of ****ing hippies. Horrible music, horrible politics, and horrible record label.

I'd say Skrewdriver. Not only were they a bunch of neo-nazi shitheads but they just generally sounded terrible.

i third anti-flag. there's nothing special about their music, and fat mike is one of the douchiest frontmen in punk rock, second only to ben weasel.

also, the exploited.

The Anti-Flag and Rancid mentions are spot on. Simple Plan shouldn't even be in a punk thread. I find Crass to be excruciatingly boring and grating, and the mixing on Feeding is absolutely dreadful, but their artsiness and influence is enough to make me not consider them among the worst ever.

A band that releases an album like Penis Envy cannot be labelled as 'the worst punk band'.

Eh, really? I've always figured a band is talented when people like a band despite being horrified of their politics. If you look at my old Skrewdriver thread, there's no shortage of people who (a) claim to only like the first album or (b) claim to like the music but not the message.

Contrast this to Crass... who really seem to be the ultimate example of aesthetics trumping substance.

Tim's best act is taking Brody Dale to U.S. with him. He is no frontman. All his project is to get wasted.

Let's get real. If G.G. Allin never shat on stage or broke bottles over his face there wouldn't be a soul alive who seriously gave a shit about his music.

Add to that Sex Pistols, who I think were not just overrated but downright terrible. Of course, this is anathema to theological music puritans -- it's construed as the equivalent to denigrating the Beatles. Get rid of the awful clothes, the vomitus, the cancerous tumor of a band manager and you've got one shitty band without a real bassist, an awful singer and some of the most deliberately contentious lyrics.

Never mind the establishment, here's some tepid music you can freak your parents out by listening to! ANARCHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

I disagree. His on stage antics aren't unique (see Throbbing Gristle); however, as far as showmen go he was prolific and his work spanned several genres. He went from pop punk ("You Hate Me I Hate You") to outlaw country ("Guns, Bitches, Brawls & Bottles") to extreme music ("Castration Crucifixion").... and he often hit on genres between these.

He certainly is not the most talented in any of these, and his lyrical themes were (more or less) limited to getting ****ed up, ****ing, & ****ing others up - which is to say drinking music - but truly, if you are drinking with friends for a night, GG's discography alone can cover a surprisingly diverse variety of emotions and sensations that will pop up.

Green Day

i don't even think they have anything to do with "punk" but yet if you ask anybody in the street about punk bands, GD's bound to crop up

not to say I hate them, i do enjoy their singles
