yeah, i still rock filth. i prefer their side of the shit split to blatz's nowadays, too. they had a big reunion show at gilman earlier this year (or was it last?) that apparently housed the world's supply of amebix buttflaps.

does anybody miss the old compilations? they were great for discovering bands. yeah yeah yeah, we got the internet now, but there was just something cool about holding a disc with 1 or 2 tracks each from a lot of different bands. loved all the fat wreck, epitaph, lookout etc. compilations. my personal faves were the honest don's ones, which was the off-shoot label of fat wreck for i guess what was slightly poppier bands.

my intro to punk in 1994. LOL everyone's gotta start somewhere.

Squeaky Voiced Teen 06-24-2011 01:30 PM

Ten Foot Pole. haahhaha haven't listened to that band in ages. Those Punk-O-Rama cd's were great when I was like 13.

This one was my favourite. It had Refused,Tom Waits along with all the bigger 90's punk bands

RembrandtQEinstein 06-24-2011 02:58 PM

it's crazy because as laughable as those bands are to me now, they sounded revolutionary when i first heard them. rancid/nofx/bad religion were the perfect enema after years of ingesting MTV cock rock and mainstream "alternative."

nathan 06-26-2011 02:52 PM

just saw these guys play with cheap girls last night:

miami grindcore heroes, shitstorm, return to the 305 tomorrow night to play some awful karaoke bar

Samuel L Bronkowitz 07-02-2011 06:48 PM

i haven't heard many of the bands mentioned, so i won't pretend to act like i know something about 'em, but......i dunno, there's something ironic, intentional or not, about a thread titled "unpopular punk bands". just sayin'....

don't see whats so funny about Punk-O-Rama , it had some brilliant bands back in the day. Bad Religion were my introduction , great band and they still are.

wallet inspector 07-06-2011 11:53 AM

welcome to the internet :cookie:

jake 07-06-2011 01:00 PM

the problem with punk rock once you get past the age of like 16 is that stuff about "being punk" and fighting authority tends to ring a little immature, which is why i can't listen to the nofx records i liked when i was 15. i think that's the point people are making about punk-o-rama and stuff of the like.

Darren.Erg 07-06-2011 01:34 PM

There are some fat wreck/epitaph bands I still listen to a ton i.e Propagandhi/Good Riddance/Horace Pinker plus I throw on NOFX or Bad Religion every once and a while but most of the fat wreck/epitaph stuff just doesn't hold up well.

Squeaky Voiced Teen 07-06-2011 03:44 PM

Bad Religion still holds up well for me, NOFX not so much.

goodfella 07-06-2011 06:11 PM

see I'd never mention Bad Religion and NOFX in the same sentence . Bad Religion wrote very meaningful and intelligent songs while keeping a lot of their rawness and aggression , whereas NOFX sound like a bunch of angry kids that want to get wasted and skate. I agree that the message of punk wears a little thin when you get older though

adam 07-06-2011 07:15 PM

so i'm twenty right now and the other day i realised i love the milo goes to college so much more than i did when i was seventeen.

what does this mean?

this is bullshit, true punks will always be punks, you just channel it in different directions, actually make a difference in society instead of just spiking your hair and getting drunk on cheap booze. look at fat mike with his campaign to oust bush. he copped a lot of flak doing that because people would say to him stuff like 'arent you the dude who just sings about drinking beer bongs and doing drugs' yet he was genuinely trying to make a difference. there are plenty of other examples of punks maturing and still "fighting authority' as you put it.
nofx have made some brilliant music, it just gets lost amongst a lot of the joke material they release. speaking of punk-o-rama some of nofx's best stuff was released on those -
this is my fave ever nofx :

also brilliant :

Darren.Erg 07-07-2011 02:43 AM

I dunno NOFX are weak when it comes to political punk but I see your point. Also Milo Goes to College gets better and better each time you listen to it. It's amazing that they were just teenagers when the album came out and people sill say it's one of the best punk albums ever. It's in my top 20 for sure.

adam 07-07-2011 02:55 AM

you could say their music has nofx on you

and yeah, milo goes to college is one of my favourites for sure. i just wanted to make the point, re: growing out of punk, that an album which features lyrics like "parents, why won't they shut up" and "your pants are too tight, you fucking homo" happens to be great a few years after i was 'like 16'.

nathan 07-07-2011 04:01 AM

when i was younger i cared about politics and wanted to listen to politically motivated music. as i have gotten older i just want to get wasted and skate.

i'm like punk rock benjamin button.

RembrandtQEinstein 07-07-2011 11:24 AM

i think punk rock actually gets more relevant as you get older. fuck that "growing out of it" shit. when you're in high school, you're pissed off at your parents' control over you/lack of money/boredom/constant unfulfilled horniness/etc, but you have no responsibility and you're still idealistic. you still have the luxury of skating/hanging out and/or getting wasted all day. as you get older and the realities of life begin to set in, you grow bitter and you lose hope.

when i was 22, the only thing that gave me the strength to go to my first office job was listening to the circle jerks "group sex" on the train every morning. of course, that could've been switched out with "my war", the faith/void split, early die kreuzen, "reagan's in", SSD, or about a million other "immature" punk bands.

Here's a band that probably no one remembers except for SVT and I. Just because they were a small band from Vancouver. They were contemporaries with GOB etc. But GOB stayed with a generic poppier sound and got shittier over time and this band moved into a more Lifetime meets Promise Ring poppy sound and got way better over time. They did a split with Anti-flag back when they were a 3 chord raw punk band called "North America Sucks". That and the first two albums they did can basically be thrown out because they're trash. But the Anti-flag split is somewhat worthwhile. They got really good with their album I is for Insignificant(second video).

I normally don't like really heavy hardcore but these guys are amazing and Life.Love.Regret is one of the best 90's punk albums. One of the heaviest bands ever for sure.

nathan 09-21-2011 06:31 PM

saw rvivr last night. this isn't from the show but it was essentially the same venue:

they were great but they smell so bad.

Squeaky Voiced Teen 09-21-2011 06:42 PM

RVIVR are probably my favorite band going(them or Cheap Girls). One of the best days of my life was playing with them in this little house in Vancouver.

Aaron 09-22-2011 05:02 AM

Has anyone mentioned The Dead Milkmen yet? Because I'm sure as shit going to.
