In and endless effort to defend and support modern-day punk rock, I have encountered waves and waves of close-minded individuals who think that punk is still and always will be The Sex Pistols and The Dead Kennedys (two great bands by the way), but punk HAS matured into some great positive sounds, I don't think anyone would argue the importance of The Clash, but in this day and age punk rock has taken a hit in the mainstream, with bands like Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, and I heard someone the other day say that Nickleback was their favorite punk band (and I'm sorry, Nickleback is terrible, and nowhere near what punk rock represents).

 

Also, since this is the AoM, I can tell you that the bands I post here are amazing for young men to look up to as pioneers of rock & roll and manliness, without all the bud light endorsements. Please feel free to share your modern and/or classic punk bands here that you think represent rock & roll manliness. And as always, keep it civil.

 

First band: The Gaslight Anthem and their song "American Slang"

I think bands like Dropkick Murphys and Street Dogs are great role models. Many of their songs are about the working man and holding up honor.

AoM Manly Skills

I'm going to assume that other than camaraderie, most of you have joined the Art of Manliness so that you can perhaps learn some skills that you hope would make you a better man.  So in that spirit I am dubbing this thread the official "here is what I learned from AoM" thread! This is the thread where you can post pictures, progress, or stories about manly skills you learned and put to work from AoM! My first thing is I'm going to restore an old Axe Head that I dug up a couple years ago when I…See More
