    But some of the American punk , especially the dead Kennedys and later minor threat and black flag and fugazi were loved by us rockers because of the heavy guitar work

    People can place bands in any genre they want but if they are loud and are driven by guitars then that will do for me
    Don't get too bogged down by it all. I'll dance to Abba if I'm in the right mood, and they can be gothic as as **** if we're getting into labels.

    The Stranglers had an aggressive, provocative attitude which sort of aligned them to the punk movement, but their music was more complex and polished than your typical punk band of the time.

    Clearly influenced by The Doors, they had this distinctive gothic organ sound which sometimes borders on prog rock, fairly lengthy songs with frequent solo breaks.

    Looking back now, I think them and Television laid the groundwork for the post-punk scene.

    The Stooges were a hard rock band for sure, but there were elements of punk in their sound too.

    Nobody was playing like this in 1972

    I think The Raven is my favorite album of theirs.
    What would you call The Clash? My fave band besides The Jam and just in front of The Cocteau Twins.

    The Clash played pretty much any genre, were they really a punk band?

    Londons burning is clearly a rock band in action , hard riffing

    The Jam were a rock band once they hit their stride , burning sky off setting sons is immense

    Same with who , early days they were dancing around , then they cranked it up to 11

    The Clash's first album is punk rock, on London Calling, their third album, they decided to cover other genres.

    A fusion of punk, rockabilly, reggae, ska, R&B and pop.

    What on earth possessed your mate to chuck a half full can of Stella and the finest punk vocalist of them all? An act of great cowardice I must say. I bet you, he wouldn't have the bottle or bollocks to have a go at Malcolm Owen face to face, the gutless little shit!

    I'd suggest the Velvet Underground may hold the mantle of first punks In my humble view , when you match thier music versus that of the age .

    Yes, the Velvets are one of my favourite bands and would probably be called proto-punk if you want to put labels on things.
