Pennywise....old or new i never get tired of them
Face to Face....still surprised they never got bigger
Bad Religion...the latest is crap imo, but still one of the edgiest bands over time
The Clash...never gets old
They had more soul and grit, IMO, than all other "punk" bands.

Joe Strummer was truly an enigma. His post clash stuff with the mescaleros (on the Global a go-go album) is certainly good but never had the exuberance ands bite of the Clash early and mid-years songs.

I also like Big Audio Dynamite who I understand is making their only US appearance on their comeback tour at Coachella. Its too bad because the Festival shows are really not geared to the older crowd, nor is it conducive to take a young teenager.
