    East Coast Punk

    I am wondering if there is anyone here that might be familiar with some of the Punk bands that came from the East Coast? I noticed alot of people mention West Coast & UK Punk bands, but there were so many great acts that came from here in DC & NYC back in the 80's. I was an active member of the DC Hardcore scene & spent alot of my youth seeing shows here & in NYC. Gosh I can remember the days when I could get into CBGB's with no I.D. and I was all of ohhhh 15 ! haha! Anyhow, I wanted to list some bands off the top of my head that were from the East Coast that were popular around here in the 80's. If there is anyone that can add to this list, please do so, as my mind is slowly creeping away from me at the ripe age of 31

    And, if you used to attend hardcore shows back in the day, please feel free to share any experiences or memories you might have...

    Anyway, here are a few:

    Minor Threat / Fugazi
    Bad Brains (oh man, they were AWESOME!)
    Iron Cross
    Government Issue
    Teen Idles
    Shudder To Think
    Dictators
    Agnostic Front
    Cro-Mags
    Scream (Dave Grohl's original band)
    Gorilla Biscuits
    Slapshot
    Murphy's Law
    Marginal Man
    7 Seconds

    Dropkick Murphys! Oi! Oi! Oi!

    Minor Threat and Fugazi are good. The Agnostic Front are okay, but nobody beats The 4 Skins! Crazyness all around! The Ramones (agree on their status as gods!) and The Dead Boys too! Stiv!!!! How could I forget The Dead Boys?!?!

    Let us not forget.... Tesco Vee and The Meatmen!

    just a quick note for "PoisonGirl234"... I played in a hardcore band in the DC/Baltimore area in the mid to late eighties. We were called "Kiddie Porn". Just curious if you remember them or not?

    Boston had a pretty good scene when I was younger. I wasn't really into it but i had a ton of friends who were. But i did dig Fugazi, Slapshot, and Bad Brains! And I agree with Culty, the Ramones are gods!!

    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.
