Re: POLL: Greatest Punk Bands of All Time

All-time List - for bands that grew out of punk, I tried to rate them based on their music that would fit the category (or else bands like the Replacements would rank higher). As far as "Proto-punk" goes, I went with the criteria that if the band had released their work today, would it be considered...

Personally I think that this poll would gain a lot more traction if you eliminated the restrictions on what songs are eligible. Let the forum police itself - if most don't feel a song qualifies as an "instrumental" then it will not get the votes needed to chart. Just my thought.
