Six More Best LGBT Punk Bands

3. The Frogs - "These Are the Finest Queen Boys (I've Ever Seen)"
This suggestion came from local artist Kevin Arrow who was keen on pointing out that while not necessarily punk rock per se, the Frogs' tradition of comedic jams, bat wings, stage glam and their confusing of Smashing Pumpkins fans makes them punk rock in the classical sense. It's a damn shame about founding member Dennis Flemion's drowning death back in 2012.

4. The Screamers - "122 Hours of Fear"
The Screamers were pioneers of the synth-punk movement, and it is a goddamned shame that they never fully got the recorded catalogue that they deserved. Darlings of the L.A. press in their day, Tomata du Plenty became a painter later on and was responsible for bringing Vampira out of retirement before succumbing to cancer in 2000.

5. Nervous Gender - "Cardinal Newman"
Noted for inspiring the Queercore movement, Nervous Gender were as confrontational as it came. Phranc who mellowed out over the years and currently pursues artistic endeavors was an androgynous picaroon who was not afraid to bait her audience and taunt with glee. 1981's Music From Hell is a must in any collection.
