Wow, this is a good idea...

1. Ramones/Sex Pistols (Americans believe The Ramones invented punk, Brits say The Sex Pistols did)

2. Minor Threat started a revolutionary movement (straight edge), punk can be organized and songs can be about more than just getting drunk and slurring words. Also responsible for the best record label of all time.

3. Operation Ivy, a bunch of 16 year old kids, are the ones responsible for EVERY current "hot topic punk" band. They proved that punk can be melodic

4. The Clash/Dead Kennedys, who knew punk could be about politics?

5. Johnny Cash, go ahead, try to claim that he is not punk. His music might not fit the defenition of punk, but his persona is the model for it.

Are you been serious or sarcastic?

Here is the quick background:

Op Ivy was formed By Jesse, Matt, Dave and Lent The King of Ska. They were just kids playing amazing punk/ska and broke up in 1989, because they were just getting too famous too fast.

For the record, Matt, is Matt Freeman... sound familiar?

how about if I told Lent The King of Ska's name was Tim... Tim Armstrong.

That's right Op Ivy is the precursor of Rancid!

Go download the S/T release (it is all of their releases on one cd), my favorite songs are Sound System, Jaded and The Crowd.


For those of you that have never heard Op Ivy before, I am jealous... I still remember my first time hearing them!

fuck you, my friend (not being mean, haha)
they brought DIY ethics to punk rock.
punk rock bands before them relied on major labels.
Crass Records was a rolemodel for the independent record labels of the 80's.
It might seem far-fetched, but ill go out on a limb and say that without crass and crass records, there wouldnt have been a hardcore scene in america (even though crass sounds nothing like an 80's hardcore band).
or any modern DIY scenes.

crass was incredibly revolutionary.

I'm not, because I've never even heard of them.
I just put a sarcastic answer because I couldn't choose five bands that I thought were the most revolutionary.

I really feel that there were DIY ethics before Crass, I think you're over-hyping them.
I can' t comment on the America scene though

what before them?
bands like the sex pistols and the clash were on major labels.
they had contracts.
i could see were you could maybe make an argument regarding rough trade records (which was more like a distro sort of deal anyways).
seriously, you should do some reading up. its really interesting to read about their achievements.

heres a good one (not the one i was hoping to find though):

I have a hard time adding Crass to the list... I do not credit them with the DIY attitude, every poor unsigned band has been DIY at some point... I do think they were the first to be successful as the process.

I did think about putting Crass on the list, but when I compared them to Minor Threat, I felt that all of Crass' reasons for being on the list (punk pioneer/DIY) were covered by Minor Threat too... and Crass has nothing that equals Dischord Records or Straight Edge

so long story short Crass < Minor Threat in my opinion

I know this is a joke, but historically Vanilla Ice and Britney will go down as people that changed music!

Name one white rapper pre vanilla ice? Saying Vanilla Ice is not important to rap is like saying Jackie Robinson is not important to baseball.

...and Britney completely changed the industry... she was the first artist where it was acceptable to be a musician, but not have musical talent as your main focus.



...word to your mother.


or better yet, 5 points to anyone that can tell me where "My Grandma made this jacket" came from?

Crass Records and Peaceful Anarchism.

Im not questioning Minor Threat's influence. They were really important.
I just think crass was more important. Even though they were for different reasons.
Crass and Minor Threat were two very different bands with two very different sounds and values.

Crass had been seen as a serious threat in England.
No other punk rock band had ever recieved threats from their government.
No other punk rock band ever had their phones tapped.
The only thing that had ever happened like that was when 'God Save The Queen' had been censored on the sales charts.

What you said about poor bands may be true, but never to the extent of crass.

There would not have been any Alternative Tenticles or Dischord without the influence and relative success of Crass Records.

Plus what this thread is asking is impossible to answer.
It might almost be possible to do it just for punk rock (which is what you guys are doing) but not for music in general.

DanDan, I think this is an issue where we are just never going to see eye to eye on...

In terms of importance according to e6c:
musical respect: Minor Threat = Crass
Movement: Straight Edge > Peaceful Anarchism (straight edge can be traced to Ian, Peaceful Anarchism has many people that could claim the origins)
Record label: Dischord > Crass Records (look at the releases)
DIY: Crass > Minor Threat

dischord does have more highly regarded releases.

(although conflict's first release was on crass records)

Bosstones is far more ska than punk, Op Ivy took both of them, and made it fucking amazing.
