Default unpopular punk bands

Forget about black flag, the dead kennedys, ramones ect. Everyone loves them and it's boring to talk about them. What are some of your favorite underrated punk bands?

I'm a huge fan of Bloody Mess And The Skabs and don't understand why I've never heard another person mention them. Actually I'm a fan of Bloody Mess in general, but haven't been able to find much of his other stuff.

I'm really liking this though, it's cool that he's still making music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a96nc90hlMo

Not a fan of the genre but The King Blues have a good sound.

Gorilla Biscuits . I guess Moral Crux is a band I always put in this category. But there are really tons of bands that no one talks about.

i just saw "reagan youth" on saturday night. it was their third incarnation, after paul kicked out all the other original members in favor of three new hired guns. yeah, i get it, dave insurgent is dead and they needed a new singer. but kicking out the original bassist and drummer as well? bad move. i saw them many times in their second incarnation and they were awesome (or at least as good as they could be without dave). now, they're much slower and not as good, technically. the only improvement is that they're doing "are you really happy?" as a dirge now (it sounds really cool slowed down), but i doubt that was intended.

will be in miami this weekend. they always put on a great show and i'm sure a rowdy, drunken time will be had by all.

i feel a little weird including them in this thread, however, because they're pretty huge within the punk scene.

I haven't listened to Avail in years. they're pretty good. I prefer their Lookout records output more than their Fat wreck stuff though

Nathan how's the new Dear Landlord/Dopamines split?

flipper is probably getting the most respect now that they ever have or will. look at all the current bands ripping them off. that being said, they still hardly get any respect.

wow, i'd completely forgotten fang even existed. probably way more my kind of thing now than the last time i listened to landshark.

i've been liking flipper's first record a lot lately too. the track linked in here isn't bad, i'll be sure to get on their second record some time.
