    MC5, Circle Jerks, Exploited, Minutemen, Suicidal Tendencie and GBH are not present. #9 does not belong.

    I was never into punk, a few of my metal bands had it as influences like Metallica, thier "garage days revisited" album is all covers of punk groups, back in '85 "The Return of the living Dead" came out and it had an all punk soundtrack, they all sounded decent to me heres the soundtrack list not sure if you recognize any of them.

    I didn't consider MC5 punk since I never heard that term until around the late 70's and they were out way before then. In fact still have Kick out the Jams a friend gave me way back when. Never really was a fan of punk or thrash, but I do have a Suicidal Tendencies CD from the 90's, The Art of Rebellion. I am more of a metal head.

    I don't know about 'most important', but how could they leave out Sonic Youth? and Lou Reed, while including David Bowie?
    The Ramones? most definitely influential, and, btw, one of the ones that actually exuded talent.

    I was unaware of the Misfits. (Not much into punk.) The talent was there, though. Appreciated. Same for The Clash, as far as I heard.

    Glad to hear the Sex Pistols included. Talented, and one of the start-up originators, who were actually original.

    But, Patti Smith, one of my all time favs, a "punk rocker?" I hear what they're saying, but it's questionable that she fits the category. Then again, "Horses" is her only album that I'm familiar with. (Was a time I could mimic her very well.)
    But, if they're going to include Patti, why not Debbie Harry, (Blondie), as well?

    But I still want to know why Sonic Youth, one of the fore-runners, didn't make the grade.
    I've only had two beers in dog years.

    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    Sonic youth was decent. I get Patti Smith because she was counter culture. Blondie was soft rock or new wave.

    What about The Plasmatics?
