Listening to punk rock & ska since I was in middle school in the 1980s. Still listen to lots of the older hardcore/punk, but here are a few more recent bands that I've been listening to a lot lately.

-Riverboat Gamblers -- if you have never heard them before, start off with To The Confusion of Our Enemies--their newer album is much different.

-Dead to Me -- Line up has changed a lot in the past year or so, but still very good. Skip the first song on African Elephants.

-American Steel - Great comeback after being gone for so many years (even though they were still playing together as a different band). Listen to Jagged Thoughts (2001) and Destroy Their Future (2007).

-Off With Their Heads - I like their older stuff better, but their new album is great.

-Dear Landlord - with people from Copyrights & Rivethead.

Too much other stuff to list...

Some of my favorite shows:

Bad Brains - in Chicago when they were touring for Quickness in 1989 or 1990.

Citizen Fish at a small club in Albany, NY in the early 90s.

Brain Failure in Boston a few years ago.

Riverboat Gamblers in Boston a few years ago when they were on the a tour with other Volcom bands (didn't like the other bands at all)

Bouncing Souls, Lifetime, & the Ergs in Boston- amazing to see all these NJ bands play together a few years ago.

Lawrence Arms, American Steel, & the Falcon in Boston a few years ago.

Man, oh man. There's so much great stuff in here...

To add a few personal favorites, there's the Vandals, TSOL, Meat Puppets, and Warlock Pinchers.

What's amazing to me is how many punk/hardcore bands are still out there, plugging away.

PRIMARY: The prime directive
SECONDARY: My wife says it's her.

The most important thing to remember about drunks is that drunks are far more intelligent than non-drunks. They spend a lot of time talking in pubs, unlike workaholics who concentrate on their careers and ambitions, who never develop their higher spiritual values, who never explore the insides of their head like a drunk does.
-Shane MacGowan

Punk Rock will always be my first true love. lately I've been listening to more of the Ska/rock steady side of the spectrum but on my drive up north for thanksgiving I was listening to rancid, leftover crack, the distillers (I go through a torrid love affair with Brody about once or twice a year), Joey Ramone, NOFX, and some Bad Religion.

Punk Rock changed my life.
That's what Jamil said.
