    this song would probably get her tar and feathered today . skip to 1:20 to get to actual song

    I was with a girl who loved Patti Smith when I was around 16 and saw this band more times than I can remember. I was more of a Blue Oyster Cult guy...but they were cool shows.

    Maybe this was already said and I'm too lazy to check......

    I really think The Who were the grandaddy's of punk. If you've studied not just their music but their attitude and a lot of the songs Pete Townsend wrote they were a dangerous band for those times. They were punk without even knowing it.

    Agree. Kinks too.

    A lot of stuff I am messing with actually reminds me more of the Who than the later punks.

    Kinks! Absolutely!

    Their career took a big shaft being denied touring for 4 years in the states because they somehow pissed off the unions that worked concert venues. Who knows how bigger they could have been.

    Follow me here:
    Louis Armstrong was a "punk".
    Chick Webb...Cab Calloway...Tadd Dameron...Diz...hell all of Bebop rebellion against the Moldy Figs.
    Louis Jordan. Hank Williams. 1955 brought us a big wave of "punks". Anytime you reject the norm...and think for yourself...you're a "punk".
    Ornette Coleman. James Brown. Sun Ra. All "punks". ;)

    Ramones, couldn’t stand them and back in the day they where avoided along with the Bay city rollers like the plague.
    Us kool kids were deep into Zeppelin, Purple, Cooper etc...

    I read some Ramones bios and now have several of there releases. It’s got a beat, simple and fun.
    Sometimes wisdom comes with age.....:rolleyes:

    an earlier post

    Yes, you are right but were too lazy to check! :p
    See, I guess I do have the attitude

    That's what I realized a while ago.

    And I was big Who fan as a pre-teen...like 10-12 years old.

    And yet I’m yet to see artists being more dissed than... Zep, Cooper and Blackmore.

    Oh, and I’m a Zep fanatic myself. Got Some Zep tattooed into my skin. Literally. And I play all these live! Love them.

    But... still I like punk.

    they weren't considered "punk" by the later rock critics.

    But who had more attitude than Blackmore (plus really good chops)?

    Zep was a force of nature from the late 60's on

    and for sheer mega-attitude and horrifying parents before many others, Alice Cooper:

    a bit of attitude



    these guys influenced metal, punk, glam, and what-all

    A big part of being "punk" is NGAF. Do what you like...do it yourself. And don't give a rip what anyone else thinks.

    In this modern world of everyone racing around in a hurry, twittering, texting, instanting this and that I just said eff it I ain't gonna look.

    I'm a man of leisure and a modern punk :D

    I’m just a rock ‘n roll singer with a pointy guitar. Just get me on a stage and show me where to plug in.

    I’m not saying they were anything near punk.

    But they got PLENTY of negative criticism back then, and still do to this day, though they are indeed great and have legions of fans, yours truly included.

    My point is, who the **** doesn’t get stones thrown at?

    Btw, David, I’d much rather be called “punk” as a rock musician than “sloppy” or “bad sounding”... that’s what those have always got...

    But did you end up getting some Bay City Rollers releases? Maybe a bridge too far
