rudimentary peni is some good ol'school punk i dont think anyone mentioned. u can break punk down soo many ways, alot of true punk bands that werent named, u have the 77' era the 82' era. oi, street/chaos, then to me u have underground "pop-y" punk ie.. pretty much all the bands on epitaph, and fat wreck cords. millencollin,nofx,strungout,pennywise,deviates, stuff like that. i was real hardcore into street punk/oi in highschool, to me it doesnt get more "real" or "core" then that. most of the bands live in ny area(not all). ie.. aglobal threat, defiance, lowerclass brats, clit 45, oxymoron,devotchkas, aus rotten, self destruct, the virus bands like that.

Lux Interior, front man for the groundbreaking punk band The Cramps, died today in a Glendale, Calif., hospital due to complications from a pre-existing heart condition, according to a news release issued by the band's publicist. There are conflicting reports about the singer's real age but IMDB.com lists it as 60.

Lux Interior, born Erick Lee Purkhiser, formed The Cramps in 1972 after meeting Kristy Wallace in Sacramento. The two, who lived in Midtown, shared a love for surf rock, rockabilly, B-movies and other bits of so-called "trash culture."

Interior took his name from an old car commercial, and Wallace, who changed her name to Poison Ivy, attributed her new music moniker to a vision she received in a dream. The couple dubbed its music as "pyschobilly" - taking the term from an old Johnny Cash tune.

The Cramps moved to Ohio in 1973 and, in 1976, migrated to downtown Manhattan where they joined a burgeoning punk scene populated by the likes of the Ramones, Blondie and Television.

The band's 30-plus years on the punk scene spawned 14 albums, a seemingly endless tour schedule and an indelible influence on artists such as the Black Lips, the Reverend Horton Heat and Sacramento's own (now-defunct) Groovie Ghoulies.

I guess its time to chime in...

I started with mainstream "punk" as the radio called it, which was/is fast alternative music. I started finding out who inspired them and have since moved back into punk from 70's and 80's. The Stooges, Agent Orange, Black Flag (the Rollins years), Misfits, Ramones are all tops on my list to name a few. This all actually began when I started playing the guitar and finding influences and styles that were fun to play.

This will be a good thread to hold onto for more bands/music that will eventually end up in the ipod. Thanks for starting this up!

Well I was the lone BMX'er in town. Was never really into music until my late teens...

But it was Pennywise that was always playing being that I am from Hermosa. Bad Religion, Offspring, Face to Face, Rage Against the Machine and Sublime were the ones that "woke me up" in a way and got my blood flowing. I have now become more of a metal head to get my blood boiling.

Never was a huge fan of DK, but the more I listen to them the more I like them. Jello Biafra was one weird guy.

Sucks to because i had just got sponsered with Mongoose and I was #13 in my age group in the state. As far as music goes it was all classic rock in those days with my parents and there friends.

Punk Rock died long before Op Ivy (actually a Ska band) and Social D (more rockabilly than anything) were formed. True Punk Rock included: The Ramones, Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop. True Punk Rock was gone by 1980.

I would have to agree with that. I grew up on punk. Lots of old punk bands at keg parties out in the middle of the dez till the cops would show up. Everybody would make a mad scramble to leave!

Ramones, Sex Pistols, and the Clash were classic punk. But even the newer stuff is pretty good. Anything from Nerf Herder to Agnostic Front.

Wow, check this out! How ironic...We were all just talking about this guy.....
Cramps founder and punk pioneer Lux Interior dies

Print By ANDREW DALTON, Associated Press Writer Andrew Dalton, Associated Press Writer – Thu Feb 5, 10:29 am ET AFP/Getty Images/File – Lux Interior, the singer and founding member of pyschobilly rock band "The Cramps," seen here … LOS ANGELES – Lux Interior, co-founder and lead singer of the pioneering horror-punk band the Cramps, has died, the group's publicist said. He was 60.

Interior — whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser — died Wednesday of a pre-existing heart condition at a hospital in Glendale, Calif., publicist Aleix Martinez said in a statement.

Interior met his future wife Kristy Wallace — who would later take the stage name Poison Ivy — in Sacramento in 1972.

The pair moved to New York and started the Cramps with Interior on lead vocals and Ivy on guitar. The group was a part of the late `70s early punk scene centered at Manhattan clubs like CBGB, alongside acts like the Ramones and Patti Smith.

Their unmistakable sound was a lo-fi synthesis of rockabilly and surf guitar staged with a deviant dose of midnight-movie camp. Some called it "psychobilly."

The pale, tall, gaunt Interior appeared shirtless with black hair and tiny, low-slung black pants, looking part zombie, part Elvis Presley as he crawled, writhed and howled his way across the stage.

The group had the raw intensity of punk, but took the music in new directions by incorporating theatrical elements, often horror-themed, in songs like "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" and "Bikini Girls With Machine Guns." Their breakthrough debut EP was 1979's "Gravest Hits."

The band made a notorious appearance at a California mental institution, Napa State Hospital, in 1978. The performance, whose video is still popular on YouTube, was a punk-era echo of the Folsom Prison concert of Johnny Cash, one of the band's influences.

Interior was widely rumored in 1987 to have died from a heroin overdose, and his wife received flowers and funeral wreaths.

"At first I thought it was kind of funny," he told the Los Angeles Times at the time. "But then it started to give me a creepy feeling."

The Cramps' lineup changed often through the decades but Interior and Ivy remained the center. Their bluesy, trebly sound — the group didn't have a bass guitarist — resonates in modern minimalist groups like the White Stripes and the Black Lips.

The band's last release was the 2004 rarities collection "How to Make a Monster." They were still touring as recently as last November.

That is awesome! I always loved meeting guys who were from the good punk rock days! It is awesome to see a kid with a bondage belt, leather jacket, saftey pins and blasting Blink-182 wanting to start a mosh pit!:p

Being that I am a product of the eighties my punk influence came from first hearing SD on the radio, then after hearing that thought I should by some of their other albums (i.e. "Mommy's Little Monster"). When I heard "telling them" I was hooked!! Even today there are very few bands that came any later than the early eighties to be found on my stereo. I don't really listen to the radio. I like what I like and I dont like alot of what comes out on the radio anymore. Speaking of Blink-182...Did anyone else go to the KROQ INland Invasion about 6 years ago when TSOL, GBH, Circle Jerks, Social D, Bad Religion, etc...played? It was hiliarious because on the main stage they decided to put blink-182 between Pennywise (incredible live show!!) and Bad Religion. The beer stands were the busiest they had been all day for that 40min!

I had a picture of Lux Interior in my HS locker. Lux had his tight leather pants on with his hand down them somewhere in the weiner region and this stoner check next to me saw it. She asked me if I was "some kind of F*@#k$ing Fa$G%t" I looked at her, closed my locker and walked away....

The Cramps were it for my in HS, I still have a few of the t-shirts. Whats funny is most people never really knew what kind of music they sang, I really don't consider them a punk band, they are in a world of there own and only a few bands I would consider similar with one of them being Alien Sex Fiend.

I was a skater all through HS and am thankful I listened to the music I did because I think it teaches you to not follow the norm but to go out and be your own person. I am also finding the older I get the more I am listing to music from my generation.

My two i-pod favs right now are Adolescents, Kids of the Black Hole and Minor Threat, Minor Threat....
