    Looking for recommendations, feel like expanding my library.

    Any and all punk is welcome.

    Some of the music I listen to:

    NOFX
    By far my favorite band. To sum them up: good music played by a bunch of alcoholic drug addicts.

    Some of their better albums (in my opinion), for those who are interested:
    - The Decline (EP)
    - Pump Up the Valuum
    - The War on Errorism
    - Wolves in Wolves' Clothing
    - Coaster
    - White Trash, Two Heebs, and a Bean
    - Punk in Drublic

    Bad Religion
    A close second. Good music, very political, very well-written lyrics.

    Some albums:
    - The Empire Strikes First - By far the best thing they've put out, both in terms of lyrics and production
    - New Maps of Hell
    - Suffer
    - Stranger Than Fiction
    - No Control

    Anti-Flag
    Loud, fast, heavily-political music.

    Some of their better albums:
    - The People or the Gun - A very good album, shows how far the band has come
    - A New Kind of Army
    - Die for the Government
    - For Blood and Empire

    Authority Zero
    Punk mixed with Hispanic influences. Pretty good.

    Albums:
    - Andiamo
    - A Passage in Time

    Dropkick Murphys
    Americans riding their Irish roots a little too hard, but a good kind of different.

    Albums:
    - The Meanest of Times
    - Blackout

    Frenzal Rhomb
    An Australian band I'd never heard of before I heard them on Pandora. Surprisingly good.

    Albums:
    - Meet the Family
    - Sans Souci
    - Forever Malcom Young

    Good Riddance
    Haven't listened to a whole lot of them, but the album I have is pretty good.

    Albums:
    - Bound By Ties of Blood and Affection

    Gob
    Canadians. Eh.

    Albums:
    - Foot in Mouth Disease
    - Muertos Vivios

    Pennywise
    I'm not fond of everything they've put out, but different strokes for different folks.

    Albums:
    - Land of the Free?
    - From the Ashes

    Propaghandi
    Hippie-liberal Canadian vegans.

    Albums:
    - How to Clean Everything
    - Supporting Caste - Very well done

    Rise Against
    Pretty mainstream in comparison, but their later albums are very good. Tim is an amazing songwriter.

    Albums:
    - The Sufferer and the Witness
    - Appeal to Reason
    - Revolutions Per Minute
    - Siren Song of the Counter Culture

    AFI
    Their early stuff is more of my preference, but some people like the suicide-girls emo-goth mask they've assumed as of late.

    Albums:
    - AFI
    - Very Proud of Ya

    Against Me!
    It's hard for me to get into most of their stuff, but they occasionally put out something good (in my opinion - your mileage may vary).

    Albums:
    Searching for a Former Clarity

    Descendents
    Old guys with glasses.

    Albums:
    - Everything Sucks
    - Cool to be You
    - Milo Goes to College

    I find it hard to get into the early 80s punk - Black Flag, Adolescents, Misfits, etc. - but occasionally listen to a few bands from then here and there. Anyhow, post your suggestions, reviews, etc. Like I said, I'm open.

    I like mostly 90's punk and melodic hardcore punk.

    Rancid
    This one is pretty obvious. If you haven't heard of this band then you really need to listen to more punk.

    - ...And Out Come The Wolves

    Not Available
    Melodic Punk rock band from Germany with a lot of mixed genres.

    - 5 Aces
    - Burp!

    The Queers
    Beach Boys meets The Ramones Punk.

    - Love Songs For The Retarded
    - Don't Back Down
    - Summer Hits, No. 1

    Swingin' Utters
    Irishy Folk/Skateboard Punk.

    - Five Lessons Learned

    The Bouncing Souls
    Punk music you can sing-a-long to.

    - 20th Anniversary Series

    3 Feet Smaller
    Emo-ish punk rock band from Austria. INCREDIBLE songs to listen to while snowboarding/skateboarding.

    - 3rd Strike
    - Damn, We Need A Title For This Record

    Daggermouth
    Melodic hardcore party punk.

    - Turf Wars
    - Stallone

    I've listened to Rancid. ...And Out Come the Wolves occasionally pops up in my playlists, depending on the mood.

    As for The Queers, I actually own Love Songs for the Retarded. I liked it, but never looked into more of their stuff.

    I'll have to look into the others. I've heard a few Bouncing Souls songs, but never really looked into them. A buddy of mine has a few Swingin' Utters albums, might borrow one or two.

    Thanks, man.

    Anti-Flag is the best one. Greatest punk band of our day, in my opinion

    Most of the bands listed here are more Pop bands than Punk bands.

    A Wilhelm Scream (somewhere between melodic hardcore and punk rock, great energy, fantastic music)
    -Ruiner
    -Mute Print
    -Career Suicide

    Strike Anywhere (same category as a wilhelm scream, slightly more towards punk)
    -Exit English
    -To Live in Discontent

    Strung Out
    -Live in a Dive (you don't need the 10+ albums, just this one really)

    This Is A Standoff (fast, melodic, funny, awesome)
    -Be Excited
    -Be Disappointed

    The Killing Tree (older side project from rise against singer Tim McIrath, a lot harder and less polished than rise against)
    -The Romance of Helen Trent

    Against Me!
    -Reinventing Axl Rose (best album they ever made by far, this is what against me was all about before they sold out and started releasing the crap they play today)
