    A list! Great idea! You should send it to Channel 4, maybe they can start making programmes about lists.

    OK, so my top 10, in absolutely no order:

    Stranglers, Ramones, Only Ones, Dead Kennedys, Vandals, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Consumed, Garageland (punk/indie), Jerry Spider Gang

    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    An interesting clip. :D

    ...hmmm, 'Top Ten' is v. difficult, partly by what you define as 'punk'...

    in no particular order and based purely on influence or fond memories:
    Damned, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Stranglers, Gang of Four, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Ruts, Slaughter & the Dogs, Clash, Dickies.

    aww I've run out: 999, splodgenessabounds, new york dolls, the dickies, sex pistols, Iggy & the stooges,

    I can't see The Clash as punk, they were too varied for that they'd fit in any genre top 10 apart from disco from that time.

    devo, the stranglers, siouxsie & the banshees aren't punk for me either but would all be top 10
