I'll play:

Sex Pistols
Ramones
Penetration
Buzzcocks
The Clash

I don't count Siouxsie & the Banshees as, by the time they recorded anything, they were post-punk.

Harsh.


Yeah. ‘Strawberries’ is the masterpiece.
‘The Black Album’ a close second.
‘MGE’ a close third.

Once they got beyond three chords (and the truth. Whatever, dude) they got more interesting.

Radiators (From Space)
The Germs
The Clash (but only pre-Sandanista, which is enough)
The Adverts
The Saints
