Leave HomeUnited States Ramones
Ramones second and more of the same, possibly even better than the first album. I bought this and Ramones in early 77 as US import pressings and they were barely off my turntable for the whole year – best band ever and a soundtrack to my youth. This is my favourite Ramones album and IMHO one of the best rock n roll records ever made.

London CallingUnited Kingdom The Clash
I would have to pick this as one of my choices for the best album ever, the Clash at their peak with a fantastic fusion of styles but not as self-indulgent as Sandinista.

Rocket To RussiaUnited States Ramones
The third of their classic first three albums and just as good as the first two, they just don't let up.

Raw PowerUnited States Iggy And The Stooges
For me this is the best Stooges album and so influential, if you hear it now it seems as fresh a when it was released. Incredibly powerful and with some great songs - Search and Destroy and many others.

RamonesUnited States Ramones
This is what they call seminal, a fantastic blast of noise and now with extra tracks, from the opening bars of Blitzkrieg Bop this LP does not let up - one of the best albums of all time (IMHO of course!)

The ClashUnited Kingdom The Clash
What can I say? First heard this when I was 17 and it blew me away. The sheer power and venomous energy unleashed was in evidence from the first bars of Janie Jones.
You can hear traces of how they would later diversify their style and their version of Junior Murvin’s police and thieves was incredibly influential in terms of the punk-reggae cross-over.
For me this is the quintessential punk album – Five stars all the way.

Quite frankly a superb album, the band is really tight, with great songs from Mike Ness, not a weak track on this LP

White Light, White Heat, White TrashUnited States Social Distortion
This is, I think, Social Distortions, most hard rocking album. There are some great songs on here, The album starts with Dear Lover and does not let up, no filler on this album.

Nice collection. If you like The Jam, listen to french punk band Bijou and their album from 1977 OK Carole.

Coooool! Not enough punk charts here, I get sick of all the Radiohead+Arcade Fire top 10s. It's not diverse but it's without any compromises, 100% honest.

A solid punk chart that is a bit...fan-ish...but solid none the less. Ramones!, E.C., Pistols, Pogues, Dolls, Stooges, Wire, Buzzcocks!...A who's who of tremendous punk. Springsteen, R.E.M. added in for color along with Nick LoweThe fandom kinda limits what what ends up being a tremendous chart for punk recommendation as I got 4 bands and more albums for my wish list.
