Ironically, Anarchy in the UK just came on the radio as I was reading your post.
catchy tune...although most would argue, not punk ;)
so I guess that is ironic

I was quoting Rolling Stone in the context of your "most" argument. I assumed you were using "most" in a quantifiable context, so I simply picked a music publication that has MANY readers.

Just because some little fanzine that you may have subscribed to 25 years ago said the the Sex Pistols weren't punk doesn't mean it's so.

So we recently watched Love and Mercy, and my wife couldn't stop commenting on how badly punk rock sucks when compared to real musicians like Brian Wilson.

Me, I'm sort of neutral regarding punk. I went to hardcore shows in the late 80's more for the scene than the music. I have the Sex Pistols and Dead Kennedys on my ipod but never listen to them anymore.

Does anybody have a musicological defense of punk based on musical merit alone?
I really loved that movie, but alas I am a major Beach Boys nerd and 60's nerd in general.   I'm struck by how multi-talented many bands were back then...ie so many bands seemed to have multiple members that could really play and really sing.  Not sure we see that as much any more.

But.

I'm still love punk rock through and through.  I went to tons of show mid 80's through late 80s too...to me that music is all aobut the guts and the aggro.  Some holds up better than others of course, but I still rock the Misfits, Germs, Discharge, Bad Brains, Clash, etc etc etc on the regular.

I have to laugh when I hear middle aged men talking about guts and aggro, as if its' a good thing. Probably the reason we're in multiple wars around the world.

I feel the same way about the Dead. They were the perfect soundtrack (and lifestyle) for a certain time in my life.  But I don't have the same passion for them anymore. I did the whole touring thing - selling veggie burritos and nitrous.  It was awesome. I had a steal your face on my 1984 Volvo wagon and on my 1979 Mercedes 300 SL.  I still have hundreds of hours of boots. But they don't speak to me any longer.  Maybe if I still took copious quantities of drugs.

Why not, will you be busy driving two hours to Charlottesville to see Jonathan Richman?

Watching kids wrestle when you're on drugs is like gazing at a 3D fleshy lava lamp.
