Joe Strummer

VU

The Stooges

REFUSED

Rise Against

AFI (everything up to The Art of Drowning, then they went pop-punk)

Nirvana

You're missing some big un's:

Television

Wire

Husker Du

The Smiths (some of their stuff is good, others... meh.)

Sonic Youth

My Bloody Valentine

I don't know if some of those quite fit into the genre, but they're all from the same general time period.

I was never a huge fan of punk rock or New Wave (at least the variety that got the most attention on MTV in the early 80s) but I am a big fan of postpunk/postmodern or whatever you want to call it, the music that followed punk in the late 70s and early 80s.

R.E.M.

U2

The Cure

10,000 Maniacs

The Replacements

Let's Active

The db's

The Connells

The Blasters

Guadalcanal Diary

The Alarm

World Party

The Church

Innocence Mission

Indigo Girls

Drivin' n' Cryin'

Pylon

Lone Justice

Beat Farmers

Cruzados

Long Ryders

I love the punk genre! Especially all the subgenres that emerged (and still is) from it.. Same with New Wave. There are so many great bands that comes to mind apart from the ones mentioned above.

Like The Birthday Party,The Cramps,Jesus & The Mary Chain,Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers, Mission of Burma

,The Fall,etc etc..

Because for someone to dig the bands you listed on this board are pretty rare.

Yes yes yes. We need to cultivate a group of people that can keep the Other Music forum going without resorting to "these guys sound like Led Zeppelin!!!".

See like here's an example... Last year (Nov) I made a Television thread.

2 people on this board knew who they were... Now, almost every person in this thread mentioned Television and other bands that would have blown me away last year, if more than 2 or 3 people knew.

I found out about Television from my dad, he gave me the Marquee Moon album to listen to.
