I've got to say I'm not a huge fan of Fat Tire. It's like a slightly hoppier version of Bud Light. I've never been much of a fan.

I used to drink a lot of Fat Tire about 15 years ago. I thought it was full of flavor compared to Bud & Busch. but I used to listen to a lot of DK for the same reason too. now they're both quite bland to me. bwahahahahaha!!
There is a difference between pride and arrogance. Which do you hold in your heart?
I was in high school and we took a summer trip to visit a friend that had moved to San Diego. (mid 90's ish). We ran into these cool ass punks on the beach and partied with them. Didn't even realize that they were the US bombs until they invited us to their show the next night lol.

sup all.great tread!
i was surprised that gg allen didn't get mentioned till the 12th page or something.
and i didn't read all 109 pages, about half. tons of great bands.
anyone hear of the fastbacks? couple chicks and a dude drummer from germany. 1990's. i'm not a big chick singer guy, but they stuck with me
also what about a thrash band called fudge tunnel?
as i got older and more into lsd, i got more into experimental/noise rock. sonic youth, fugazi, ect..
punk is the heart
and capital letters arent punk.
GG is hilarious, but if he were alive I would not let him with fifty yards of my fermentors. Talk about botulism! If you want to dig an awesome band that is relatively new, but soinds old, check out The Coathangers from Atlanta. Just that name for an all female band should tell you where this is going. Imagine joy division drumming (martin hannet era with the really speedy high hats) with Cramps riffs with some aroma hops of Sonics style garage and theramins.
Also, if anyone wants to dig a band that is pretty much The Clash meets Hot Water Music, check out The Menzingers. They are badass and from my hometown, Scranton PA. If you're from a working class town that the economy left behind, their song Chamberlain Waits will hit you. If you're not used to indie style vocals (not emo style, just also not Kieth Morris) it might be an adjustment. Many old heads in the punk world laud their work. They play from gut and are bringing punk back into accessible punk rock. But don't take my word, here is a quote from Brett Gerwitz of Bad Religion when he signed them to Epitaph (a huge day for us old heads from the Scranton punk days). "These guys play the kind of pure punk rock that I grew up with. They are seriously talented songwriters and I'm happy to welcome them to the Epitaph family. I think the band is a great fit here". I was hanging out with these guys Tuesday night in LA and they killed it.
