    That's the game. Not the greatest period, but by discography and specifically the number of high quality albums.

    It's a tough call, but I'm going to say Rancid is up there.

    Let's Go
    Out Come the Wolves
    Life Won't Wait
    Self Titled (less awesome but still great).

    Really, I think the first three are just each so different but equally amazing that it puts Rancid at the top of the list.

    Bad Religion? Idk. I really like some punk, but never got too into it as a genre. Which is weird because I played in a punk band. I guess that’s why we grew tired of that and turned into a metal band within a year.

    But Pennywise, Straight Ahead, is an album I still listen to almost daily. Great album. One of my all time favorite albums of all time in any genre.

    Yes I love the Misfits with Glen. Cliff Burton turned me on to them.

    I also love The Adicts. I was never really into Punk but some of that shit is catchy as hell.

    I second The Misfits. I love all those albums and Evilive. Each album is so different but equally awesome.

    Sticking with hardcore punk, punk rock, etc since post-punk would be far too difficult.
    Ramones or Dead Milkmen for me.

    Tough call. Once a punk band starts selling well they're by definition no longer punk.

    I also feel that a good punk band needs to be about social consciousness.

    So, DK's. Several good to great albums in a row.
