Who would be your Big Four of Punk

Sex Pistols
Ramones
The Clash
Dead Kennedys


But for a tour, maybe get the Damned in place of the Ramones

What say you?

    You had misspelled "punk" and typed "pink", and Yella was just asking if you would like him to change it to "punk". I edited it at around 1am

    I dont know that I've ever seen the Talking Heads categorized as punk. Im not sure ive ever seen them assigned to a genre actually. I like it though.

    American punk had its roots in '60s garage rock and in the raw minimalism of the Velvet Underground and the Modern Lovers; several bands -- the Stooges, the MC5, the New York Dolls -- played what was essentially punk rock before there was a term or classification for it. But for all intents and purposes, American punk truly begins with the Ramones, around 1975-76. A thriving, often artsy punk scene sprang up around the Ramones in New York City, and similar movements took shape in Los Angeles, where the music was more aggressive and closer to what would become hardcore punk; Cleveland, which tended to be weirder and more experimental, partly due to the lack of media attention; and Boston, which was often closer to garagey power-pop than true punk. New York remained the focal point of American punk, however, featuring most of the style's best-known and/or most influential artists: Television, Richard Hell, Patti Smith, Blondie, Talking Heads, Cleveland transplants the Dead Boys, etc. By the early '80s, American punk had either faded away or morphed into new forms: hardcore punk, new wave, and early alternative rock. American punk didn't supply the immediate pop-music revolution that British punk did, but it continued to nourish American underground rock for decades, and a California-centered revival of the form -- heavily reliant on the Ramones -- became extremely popular during the '90s.

    Makes sense then. The early 80s where American punk morphed into new wave is my era. I hated it at the time, and the "wave-os" were the ones listening to Talking Heads at my school. I didn't like them at the time either, but grew out of that.

    They were definitely concerned a “punk” band early on along with the other CB GB groups in NYC. The 1st wave of American punk was pretty eclectic.

    Obviously, by the 3rd album or so The Talking Heads had moved on to other things.
