    A few others that come to mind are:

    Superchunk
    Pegboy
    Chelsea
    Volcano Suns

    If you like girl punk, consider:

    The Slits
    L7
    Seven Year Bitch
    Sleeter-Kinney
    ˇÓrale, vato!

    A couple of off the wall additions:

    The Dickies-The Incredible Shrinking Dickies
    Kind of a tongue in cheek punk, with killer playing. I can justify the album purchase solely on their cover of Paranoid, one of my all time favorite covers. The original release was on 12" urine yellow vinyl. Still have my copy.

    Pere Ubu-Dub Housing or Terminal Tower, for an overview
    Might not be considered "punk" by those coming late to the party, although it was groundbreaking at the time.

    And, as already noted:

    Dead Kennedys-Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
    If this doesn't deliver a knock out punch, I don't know what will. Scathing, uber black lyrics, delivered in a full on snarl by Jello Biafra, backed a sonic powerhouse of a band. They had it all in one package. Jello's legal issues with his bandmates are the stuff of legend.

    X-Los Angeles
    Dark fun. Exene Cervenka's vocals may be an acquired taste but the skewed harmonies with John Doe are magic to my ears.

    For a little context, check out:

    The Clash-Rude Boy
    Not a great movie, but you can get a better sense of how it all came about.

    if you want to check out some newer punk, give The Thermals a listen.

    im sorry, but the pixies are the best band of my generation.

    i dont know AFI very well, i just listend to a couple preview tracks, if you like the more recent bubblegum punk bands, i guess you might like AFI better.

    but if your favorite punk bands are X, Black Flag, DK, and Fugazi (Brendan Canty produced The Thermals most recent album) and you like stripped down old school punk, then The Thermals kick AFI's ass ten different ways. AFI does have more ink though.

    Dude, everyone knows that Blink 182 is the best punk band ever. Followed closely by Green Day.

    Fez, clearly I really need to work on my sarcasm. I’ve seen the Thermals and they’re good. Check-out the new(ish) records from Erase Errata and the Young Widows, while they’re not reviving the sounds of yesteryear they are punkasfuck.

    goldfinger
    decendents
    ignite is a great band as was mentioned earlier
    dillinger escape plan definatly metal but bad ass
    stretch armstrong good hardcore love their cover of pinks get the party started
    older green day is pretty good kinda slow
    afi very proud of ya is great
    boris the sprinkler awesome and hilarious great live band, not to many shows i have seen the lead singer dressed up like the green m&m, mega anal is my favorite of theirs
    slapstick, skapunk but good
    i like early ataris
    wizo awesome german band on fat wreck
    millencollin

    yeah Greydon, i got the sarcasm. I may live in montana, but i'm not from montana. not sure what it is, but montanans never get sarcasm. since i had never heard AFI, i had to check them out before i could say they suck. i checked them out, they suck.

    and freeskisquaw, greatest punk album of the last 15 yrs? my ass! fugazi has put out 5 albums since 91, that should sum it up right there. afi isnt fit to carry fugazi's intruments.

    how are the thermals live?
    and ill check out those other bands for sure.

    Fugazi = $$. I got to see 'em 3 times,I think I spent a total of $16 on tickets for all three shows. Check out The Evens , Ians new band. Not punk, but it's good stuff I think.

    that crowd looks super insane during police truck.

    super as in rainbows and unicorns.

    This is what a punk show is all about.

    edit for: the unseen is pretty damn "good" live.

    Haha youre so funny. Just because their new album isnt great doesnt mean that they suck. Listen to Shut your mouth and open your eyes, black sails in the sunset and the art of drowning. All three of those albums are excellent examples of a band's evolution from hardcore/punk to a different sound. Mabye they arent the best band of our generation, but they certainly are good. They also put on one hell of a live show, their fans are like no other.

    Good. Saw them at the Filmore opening for somebody forgetable.

    Yes I am. But not as funny as the kid who claims AFI are the best punk band since 1990. Have you ever heard the punk bands Skidrow or Poison? They were killing it 15 years ago and they look and sound a bit like AFI.

    I'm a big fan of pretty much any band Brendan Kelly has been in:
    Slapstick
    The Broadways
    The Lawrence Arms (awesome f-ing live show...)
    The Falcon

    then other random stuff:

    Honor system
    the ghost
    the wunder years
    American Steel
    Dillinger Four
    Hot Water Music
    The Draft
    NOFX
    Rise Against
    Samiam
    Refused
    One Man Army
    Dead to Me
    Against Me
    Ignite

    And the three bands I saw at my first show in Santa Cruz (vet's hall):

    Strung Out
    Lagwagon
    No Use for a Name

    and too many more to list

    Yah you gotta love any of these guys. If you the Subhumans/Citizen Fish, Culture Shock is also good. Dick sang for all three bands. Culture Shock was the earlies.

    Flux of Pink Indians were also great.
    OLD Chumbawamba is great peace punk. Like "Never Mind the Ballots," etc.
    Antisect is also some great peace punk if your into the old 3-chord punk like Crass.

    Christ on Parade "sounds of Nature" and "A mind is a terrible thing" are great.

    Have to 2nd tons of the bands people mentioned: MDC, Minor Threat, Fugazi, etc.

    Also 2nd the following that were brought up but maybe not the exact record:

    Accused: Most older are great
    Suicidal Tendencies "Suicidal Tendencies" self titled is a classic for sure
    GBH "Leather, Bristles, ...." is pretty alright
    7 Seconds "The Crew"
    Agent Orange "Living in Darkness" is great surf punk ala Dick Dale as mentioned

    The Dicks "Hate the Cops" is another great one.
