It's the worst list, but there are several other head-scratching nominations elsewhere.

I mean, anyone who puts Scratch Acid or Husker Du in a list of the five best punk bands ever is clearly out of their mind.

Husker Du are a Stoner Metal band essentially. Plus have you seen the state of them?

Punk doesn't have great depth as a genre. The best stuff is the best known.

The Ramones a novelty act? Oh please. What a narrow view.
