    a lep is a ball
  • I hate rating things like this in order of preference, yet I keep coming back and doing top ten lists...

    Oh well. These are simply ten of the Post-Punk/Alternative/Indie bands who inspired me personally the most.

    1. Siouxsie and the Banshees
    2. New Order (Joy Division goes here too, of course)
    3. Echo & the Bunnymen
    4. Nena
    5. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
    6. Sonic Youth
    7. Hüsker Dü
    8. Love and Rockets
    9. The Church
    10. The Jam

    Honourable Mentions/Rule Bending:

    There are quite a few others I could mention whose impact has been smaller either historically or for me personally for whatever reason: Shotuouts go to the likes of The Buggles, Cocteau Twins, The Psychedelic Furs, Wire, The Comsat Angels. and Talking Heads who all should most certainly not be forgotten.

    Depending on how you define "post-punk" I could also have added artists as musically diverse as Laurie Anderson, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys and even Iron Maiden.

  • Interesting seeing everyone's lists! Here's mine:

    1. Television
    2. Wire
    3. Magazine
    4. PiL
    5. The Feelies
    6. Felt
    7. Orange Juice
    8. Gang of Four
    9. Joy Division
    10. Josef K.

    Some of them probably aren't strictly "Post Punk" but whatever.

    Yeah, I know what you guys mean about ratings like this. I don't really mean strictly what is better or worse, just more the subjective passion you have for the bands I guess. I mean you could just derive it from listens more if you so choose, A few bands in my list are interchangeable I will admit. I think most of us tend to have those few real favourites close to heart though.

    Not easy to rank these, as others have said. If I did it again in a week it would probably be different (apart from Joy Division at the top). Hard to leave out PIL / The Fall / Bauhaus.

    9. The Sound
    10. A Certain Ratio

    not really in order, except for wire who remain my perennial favorite. if you want to consider devo and wall of voodoo postpunk then go ahead and add them to the top of the list, as they're my among my favorite bands, but i thought people might consider them more "new wave" (i don't).

  • order varies daily.. some nto strictly PP, blah blah blah...

    1 Killing Joke
    2. Swans
    3. Joy Division
    4. Gang of Four

  • St D. Swans early music is as post-punk as it gets. I am sure you disagree - c'est la vie.

  • One important band left off..........

    How come no one nominated Christian Death in their top spot, they are amazing, also no mention of KUKL, Bjorks early band or what about 9353 from DC????

  • I take back the

    KUKL statement I re read and caught my mistake............
