    When I think of Punk, I think of Sham 69.

    Again people are playing fast and loose with their definitions. Punk was basically dead by 1978, maybe a year or two later in the US. So anything later than that by definition wasn't punk. Derivatives came later.

    Sex Pistols
    Ramones
    Saints
    X-Ray Spex
    Dead Kennedys

    Ramones and Minutemen are two big ones for me. Buzzcocks too, if you count them as punk (some people don't). Related: MC5, Stooges. Oh, the Gizmos, Violent Femmes, Dead Boys too.

    The first 3 Wipers albums
    The first 3 Wire albums
    The first 3 Devo albums
    The last 3 Clash albums (I don’t acknowledge Cut the Crap)
    The first Slits album
    The first X-Ray Spex album
    The first Gang of Four album
    Everything pre-90’s by The Fall

    I like my punk to be weird and artsy and not-really-real-punk, I guess?

    Without reading this thread, I bet someone, somehow, said jokers like green day and blink.

    A mix take I got in 6th grade (86-ish I think, it was a long time ago) with Fear, Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag really got me hook. I was really into music as a little kid and listened to my parents music, Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, The Beatles, Stones, etc...but punk was my first music that was different from my parents.
    I have a Black Flag tattoo so I guess I have to say them. Greg Ginn was a huge influence on my guitar playing. First playing fast, heavy and sloppy and then when Black Flag slowed it down with My War it got even better. Then he was clearly listening to more jazz and the Dead and starting adding really atonal solos it just really resonated with me in a powerful way. Being a Bay Area kid, the Dead Kennedy's were always huge important. I loved the blend of sarcasm and politics and I was also really into surf guitar so East Bay Ray is one of my all-time favorites as well. I've seen Jello hanging out at a billion shows and it's always a little exciting even though he always looks annoyed. Going to hundreds of shows at 924 Gilman, I've been lucky to see a ton of really great and creative punk and metal bands and I only wish I new about to sooner but punk will always hit me in a very nostalgic way.

    Pre-London Calling Clash (London Calling is very good but objectively it's far from plain punk), Pistols, Dead Kennedys, The Damned, Stiff Little Fingers, Bad Brains, The Exploited.
    Also The Saints, Discharge and The Adverts.

    Every other punk I knew circa late 1970s.

    14 January 1978, the night the Sex Pistols imploded on stage in San Francisco, is as good an estimate of a date of death for punk as any (realized in retrospect of course).

    Music was moving on to the next thing by then. "Shot by both Sides" was released in 1978. As was "Hong Kong Garden" and "Damaged Goods".
