Broward-Palm Beach Counties' 11 Best Punk Bands of All Time

Categories: Local Music, list

2. Morbid Opera
One of the better punk acts to come out of the '80s, Morbid Opera's Jesus Loves You - So Give Us Your Money! EP is a gem. Singer Lisa Hodapp unfortunately passed away in 2010 after battling cancer.

1. The Cichlids
The Cichlids' could've been the first punk rock superstars to emerge from South Florida. But through a combination of signing to disco label TK Records, personal differences, and bad timing, it was simply not meant to be. "Lifeguard Dan" might technically be the first DIY music video shot in South Florida. Drummer Bobby Tak has recently recorded with Charlie Pickett and singer Debbie DeNeese routinely kicks this scribe's ass in Words with Friends. Regardless, their lone album, Be True to Your School is a must in any collection.
