Re: [Classic_Rock_Forever] Re: Top 5 Metal bands and Top 5 Rock bands


The Ramones were honest about what they were trying to do, and yeah the beach music connection and all the 50s doo-wop stuff, is obvious and out front.

The Pistols were a contrived, invented outfit, where everything was for show and the entire affair under almost false pretenses at times. Some good rip-your-face off material, but, eventually, you do feel cheated   ;-)

The difference, to me, between the Ramones and the Sex Pistols was that the
Ramones seemed to be having fun, and almost had a nod towards beach type
music while The Sex Pistols seemed to be angry about everything.

I'd prefer Iggy to either group, although in the end my favourite punk group
was a little known group from Canada called the 'Battered Wives'. Had a bit
of anger, but humour injected into the recipe.

I think an better way to look at it is rock genre encompass a bunch of
different sub styles. Looking at it that way it is easy to see why artist
are listed under so many styles but Billy Joel said it best "it's all rock
and roll to me"

Clint you are on the right track about iggy being the godfather of punk
seeing he was playing it back in the 60's. The New York Doll took it to a
different level in the early 70's. It wasnt till the Ramones that punk was
even a gerne. They really put punk rock on the map. The Sex Pistols followed
later. (but no less important).
In just a few years punk evolved from nothing to one style, changed and
taken to another level and changed again. (makes me dizzy)
