Default Anyone into the punk rock?

Seems like everyone is riding to hip hop and trippy shit, just wondering if anyone was into some more straight up punk rock. Dillinger 4, Swingin' Utters, Rancid, maybe some old school east coast hardcore too? Seems like years ago punk and rock used to be the main type of music for skating and boarding and now it's gone towards more mellow hip hop and whatnot. Not that I mind, I love some hip hop when the time is right, just wondering.

Heh, rancid, I got their salvation song on my ipod, I remember those days. I mostly listened to the Seattle grunge bands back then, namely Pearl Jam when they came out, but other groups like Rancid, Green day back in the "day", RATM stuff like that ( I know it's not all punk)

I love old school punk rock, particularly the Misfits and the Ramones. It makes up a lot of my snowboarding playlist

Is there any good new stuff out? I haven't picked up any new punk rock music in a long time...

i was big into the ny harcore scene back in the day as well as a good bit of punk. hardcore is almost non existant these days and a lot of the "punk" bands out now seem fake or they are trying too hard. not sure if i just like the old school or if my taste has changed over the years.

I like alot of the punk songs you find on snowboarding videos, its just some of them are really hard to find. It took forever to find Chrome Locust's "New World Disorder" from the True Life video.

I started with the Ramones, New York Dolls, all that garage punk when I was younger, then I gave it up for a while but there are some decent bands going around these days. Dillinger 4, out of Minn is great. Fast and raw with some newer style mixed in. The Hold Steady is great to take a listen to. Older guys and you can hear some 80s and 90s influence in their songs.

Growing up in Boston, if I never hear another Unseen song again I'll be alright in life. They played every single punk show when I was growing up. I was more into Boston bands like The Trouble and Blood for Blood.

As for Ska, I still give some 3rd wave stuff a listen, like the Toasters, and some of the old english two tone is still just some of the most melodic, easy, calming music you can find. Anything off that 3 CD set, "Ska Wars" is awesome.

It is honestly sad at how HC died out. You used to be able to go to a Blood for Blood or Madball show and be amped up for days after. Now it's not even fair to call much out there hardcore. I have to admit I stopped attempting to follow a lot of HC after a lot of the local bands I listend to disbanded. I still listen to some Reach The Sky and a couple other local bands but I haven't been to a show or keep up with new releases for years. I suck.
