The best Punk band versus the best Hardcore Punk band Who's the best? Both have incredible band names that mirror the music. For me, Dead Kennedys all the way...
DK though obv
"best" but y'know they are the iconic two. I'd say The Damned are my favourite Punk band but it has to be Pistols Vs DK as apposed to i.e. The Clash Vs Minor Threat (you get my drift?). Pistols blew my mind in an energetic way but DK blew it more a few years later with that social commentary that is yet to be realistically surpassed...
Sex Pistols are nothing compared to PiL anyway
Sex Pistols, while fun, were a very good example of style over substance. That band makes a much more interesting story than they do a band in the long run, and while Nevermind The Bollocks is a very nice record, it does not compare in the least to Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. That album was dynamic and funny, and it went in a lot of different directions.
Not only that, but the content is a lot better. Songs like "California Uber Alles" and "Soup Is Good Food" are better than anything in the entirety of the Sex Pistols catalog, and even those songs aren't their best songs - they're merely very exceptional.
Don't get me wrong, I LIKE Sex Pistols... but they just aren't as good.
The correct answer is Dead Kennedys.
Police Truck is the best
Just Good Pop™, yeah?
