@Bikeage Milo Goes To College is one of the albums that transitioned me over from alternative bands, Sebadoh, Lemonheads, Smashing Pumpkins, Afghan Whigs, into being full on into punk. I skated as a kid in the late '80s & '90s, so I was on a constant search for the punk rock sounds of the skate vids, especially bands which sounded like Descendents, but punk was dead in the UK.
The only place that stocked it in Liverpool was an indie records shop called Probe and then it was only on vinyl. My record player was so cheap those records sounded even more raw and crackly than their original recordings. Bikeage is a truly inspired choice, lots of people would opt for other greats off the album e.g. Catalina, Marriage and Hope. I'm glad you chose Bikeage, Milo should have named that song 'Hopeless (Girl)'. It is possibly my favourite pick of the entire thread.
By the late '90s you could buy punk rock CDs in the UK, as easily as PlayStation games.
Me and my mate used to hammer out our own cover of NOFX's Bob and Linoleum, on two acoustics, when we all used to go on Surf/ Skate holidays and have beach parties in Newquay.

The Ramones have been mentioned twice now, by @The_Fox and @Corbie , I loved the sheer fun of the Lookout bands embracing the Ramones sound, it reached a peak in the late '90s, but seems to be less prominent in punk today, (excluding Green Day of course).

Below is The Mr T. Experience, Dr Frank's way of tripping over words was great... do you love your girl even More Than Toast, even if she loves you less than a staple gun?

Next clap your hands to Screeching Weasel's very own ode to TV's 'Happy Days'. "Let's go to Milwaukee, Say hi to Mr. C., Fonzi, Potsi, Richie too, Ralph's at Arnold's..."... this is Joanie Loves Johnny (below)

@Bikeage and JamieO: Count me in on the Descendents love. The first time I heard them I was unimpressed, but they quickly grew into a favorite.

@The_Fox Your Mudhoney selections are really good, their early stuff sounded quality, but they were not as consistent later on.
@MERG Circle Jerks is another great name for a band.

Below is Dillinger Four and the boozily titled Doublewhiskeycokenoice. Ignore the fan made video, which bears no relation to D4 or to the song's lyrics and don't worry the cat is alright in the end. Concentrate on listening to the tune instead. Enjoy.

Some mixed genres this time:

Does it get more classic than this for Social D? No, it doesn't.

Hats off to @The Fox for sparking the idea to resurrect this thread, over at A Music Thread. I have been listening to the new Alkaline Trio album, 'This Addiction', lots. They are really on form with this one, the title track is great and I really like The American Scream. The version I bought has extra tracks, including acoustic versions of songs. It even came with a live DVD gig, which is a cool bonus! The extra tunes are good too, particularly Kick Rocks and Those Lungs. My favourite song on the album is Dine, Dine My Darling.

Has it really been over ten years since 'From Here to Infirmary' was released? That album is still my favourite Alkaline Trio release. Here is a classic track from that very album, this scorcher is Armageddon (below):

Fabienne: Whose punk rock podcast is this?
Butch: It's a thread, baby.
Fabienne: Whose thread is this?
Butch: It's Jamie's.
Fabienne: Who's Jamie?
Butch: Jamie's thread's not dead, baby. His thread's not dead.

... Fabienne: Yeah, but I never asked that, dummy!... and who the hell are Fabienne and Butch anyway!!! Rock on NLife

****Edit Whoa! Hats off to MERG, with a super snappy post here of a real classic (above)! Great choice mate, with an excellent video **** :)

Starting waaaaaaay back with the New York Dolls:

I was just watching a biopic on Joey Ramone a few days back which put me in a wistful mood:

You know what? I just love this one by The Minutemen. Nice and laid back:

Man I love this thread. It brings back so many memories from my youth....like getting picked on constantly for listening to "different" music and not looking like everyone else!

Heh, I hear you there. I spent a chunk of my childhood in the south where there were two acceptable types of music: country and western. My friends and I got untold flak from out musical tastes.

@MERG and @The Fox Fair play to you two, it is great to catch up on your tunes and share a few tracks. Sweet. :)

Fox, I have not heard Joey Ramone's cover before, ace! Man, it was D. Boon's birthday recently, he was born on April 1st 1958. Listening to History Lesson Part II is so sad, his talent was taken way too soon. :(

Merg, I have been a bit quiet on NLife, did you mention ages ago that you were going to see either a Sugar, or a Bob Mould gig? I might be mistaken.

@JamieO...Good memory. I did mention that I was going to go see Bob Mould as I try never miss a performance of his in Philadelphia. Sadly, I missed it. I just couldn't spare the time. There will be a next time though.

@MERG I hear year you bud! For the first time in ages, I have simply not been able to go to any gigs and I miss doing that lots. Sorry to hear you never got chance to see Bob Mould. If you do get to see him in the future, could you tell me what it was like, please? I just don't have any spare time. I would rather go to a gig, than just go out to the pub, or be drinking in a night club, any day! Ah well.

@JamieO...next time I see him I will tell you about the show in excrutiating detail.

As much as I love him with a band, this is my favorite way to see Bob. It is awe-inspiring to see him alone on a stage with a guitar...
