The Clash should definitely be a little higher on this list. They paved the path for everything after them!

Fun list...I was exposed to most of this in early high school and I didn't quite get it. (I think my childhood was wrapped in cellophane a little too tightly.) But 30 years later, after seeing a lot of the real world and enjoying the subsequent, very cool music that is rooted in this stuff, I can go back and play this collection with both notaglia and new appreciation.

Definitely this is an awesome list. Putting these albums together would be an awesome Christmas present for the punk rock music lover in the family.

other than the Sonics, anyone notice it is in chronological order?
