Top 10 Punk Bands (REDUX)

Developed in the mid-1970s, punk rock is a genre of music rooted in garage rock that also rejected the mainstream 1970s rock sound. The music was fast, hard and stripped down while the songs' themes were usually political in nature. The punk attitude was also about a do-it-yourself ethic that went on to influence many bands thereafter. For this list, we’ve chosen influential artists who helped define punk, who were commercially successful and whose music stood the test of time. This is part of a series of videos spanning the decades of alternative rock music from the 1970s to the 2000s, and includes our lists of the Top 10 Alternative Bands of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as well as the Top 10 Punk Bands and Top 10 Grunge Bands. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 most influential punk bands (REDUX).
