I was mainly into hard rock and heavy metal back in the day and then fell face first into a huge mass of punk bands.
DRI, MDC, Black Flag and English Dogs etc...

It took me a while to figure out which was the first, but I got it.
Suicidal Tendencies self titled.
I was out with my friends and someone was playing a cassette of this in his boombox and my head nearly exploded!

Well yeah I guess they are for sure. I was thinking more about the British outfits that were fast and hard and nasty. Absolutely loved that stuff!


Right. Outside of the Ramones, most 1st wave punk bands actually weren't playing as fast as the next wave would (especially stuff inspired by or involved in "Oi!" style). I find a lot of that 2nd wave had, in may aspects, much more in common with heavy metal than punk did - especially in the UK.

Devo is often seen as being New Wave but that was just a label that the major record labels were putting on anything they were trying to sell while also trying to avoid the stigma that came along with the word "punk" at the time. "Punk music" was a hard sell - "New Wave" painted a rosier picture. Which I'm sure was fine with Devo because if there is one thing they like it's subversion.

For me, it was the first album by The Skids, "Scared To Dance" (1979), which kind of spoiled anything else punk for me, because it's pretty melodic, all things considered. As a result, I was never really able to get into a lot of the 1980s US punk acts, as I don't have the patience for wonton screaming. Punk acts that I did like: Bloody Mannequin Orchestra, Six & Violence, some Raw Deal/Killing Time, some S.O.D., a few All EPs, and Oingo Boingo circa "Good For Your Soul."

The first punk song I remember hearing was in 1966, Sam the Sham & Pharoah's LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.
I was 10 years old, and up to this record had listened to my dad when it came to musical taste. I agreed with him in 64 that the Beatles were kind of wimpy, all that hand holding.
I was hooked, prepped, and when Iggy came along, ready to rock.

The Offspring right after Smash came out (I was 8 or 9 haha) at a friends place (her older brother) and then nothing till I was 12 or so. Bought The Offspring's album Americana and Ramones Leave Home (CD's of course).

The first punk I ever heard was early/mid 90's. Bratmobile, Operation Ivy and Corrosion Of Conformity are the initial three that come to mind. I was really into Ministry about this time too. Not punk but a close relative that helped push me that way.

My 1st Punk band were The Raw Dogs. I saw them in mid-July 1977 at a discotheque in Bristol, GB. I gues they never made a record. Their sound was a bit like Johnny Moped with a cover of "Parchman Farm". Highlight of the gig was the singer pissing off the stage.
A few days later in London I saw The Cortinas.

Ah crap. Been a while since I have been on.
My first and still favorite punk group has to be the Misfits. I know, pretty mainstream these days. Got most of their stuff, and enjoy collecting bootlegs. After that, it was short order into a lot of the older late 70's early 80's stuff. The Pistols, the Jam, GenX, Germs, Black Flag, Weirdos, the Damned... the list goes on and on. I consumed music like mad at that age.
