Top 50 Punk Bands, a State-by-State Breakdown, Part One: Alabama to Georgia
Black Flag - "Rise Above"
California is such a vast land that this entry should normally be a hard one to whittle down, but we've said fuck it and gone with the tried-and-true Black Flag, especially now that lawsuit-happy Greg Ginn is showing what senile dementia can do to punk rockers. Regardless of which, nothing fuck-starts a morning like the track above. No pun intended.
The Rok Tots - "Suicide Weekend"
Colorado's The Rok Tots must've not been very keen on nature, but certainly seem like they were in on the progressive marijuana laws way back in the '80s. From 1984, this is off the suicide-oriented Suicide Flakes seven-inch. The Rok Tots have been active since the '70s. Go Denver!
