First Punk Band?
 
What do you consider the first punk band and why?
What was the first punk band you heard/loved and why?

As far as first punk band I would really have to mull it over between Death or the Hollywood Brats. First punk band I loved was the Ramones. First time I heard it it was all over for me.

I'm sure this has been a thread before, but I'm brand spanking ass new, so I don't know what the ****s going on yet.

I consider Television to be the first punk band, by way of diy ethos and sound (Little Johnny Jewel came out in 75).

The first real punk album I listened to was AFI's The Art of Drowning when I was a sophomore in high school. Before that I was pretty big into grunge and late 90s/early 2000s radio rock.

Yeah, regardless I really love Television. Death recorded their first ep in 75 as well, and Hollywood Brats recorded their first album in 73 but it wasn't released until 75 when they had broken up. The only thing is wether or not Hollywood Brats are punk, but when I listen to 'sick on you' I feel like yes, but I suppose that is debatable.

Oh damn, just hearing this for the first time now and it's indeed punk as ****. But then again some would say even Queen Bitch was really punk.

The Death singer has a lot of spots on the album that sound like HR from Bad Brains

But that's just because I'm racist

True, it's honestly such a subjective question, it drives me crazy sometimes

Lol yeah, I'd say reverse that, but yeah I've thought that too.

I missed seeing Death live a few years ago at our local music festival. Their sons are doing the band under the same name and I heard they still have it going on.
