It's interesting to think that punk rock, the once innovative and vibrant style of music has been degraded to either bands who are too bubblegum (like Blink 182), or too hardcore (CKY). Classic punk by artists such as the Ramones, the Clash, the Sex Pistols, and the Buzzcocks were great because they were anarchistic while remaining intelligent and relevant to politics and social issues.

Of all the hardcore punk bands I've heard, the Misfits are the best. Static Age is a perfect example of classic punk at its peak. The lyrics are outstandingly intelligent while remaining campy and fun. Being 15 years old, I wasn't alive during the late 70's and early 80's when punk was at its best, but my discovery of the Ramones on the internet led to my love of classic punk rock.

Static Age has what I believe to be one of the best songs of the punk rock scene in the 70's: Last Caress. Being a keyboardist and drummer, I learned chord progressions for blues, jazz, and rock standards. For years, it seemed like most rock bands kept going back to these same progressions.

The Misfits, however, have invented and perfectly executed some of the most melodic and unique chord progressions in rock music. Lead singer Danzig also sings with a fiery ferocity of passion, only screaming to emphasize. Screaming is what makes up 99% of today's punk music, but Danzig knew when to hit his anarchistic high notes, and when to hit his ghoulishly haunting low notes. The rhythm section (guitar, bass, drums) does a phenomenal job on this album. There speed, accuracy, and synchronicity is perfect with Danzig's vocals.

I have nothing against today's punk rockers who call themselves punks and listen to Blink 182 and Avril Lavigne. Music is entertainment, and to get into the fine points of what it should and shouldn't be ain't right. But if you say you like punk, I suggest you study its roots and buy Static Age.
