yahoo's 25 essential #punk album list is mostly ok

I gots opinion. Disclaimer: The No's are all great albums, their just not among my personal elite albums.

25) The Angry Samoans -- Back From Samoa: YES
24) The Dictators -- Go Girl Crazy!: NO
23) The Germs -- GI: YES
22) The Damned -- Machine Gun Eitiquette: NO
21) Avengers -- The Avengers: HMMM, MAYBE?
20) Circle Jerks -- Group Sex: ABSOLUTELY. TOP 5.
19) Descendents -- Milo Goes To College: YUP. Top 5.
18) Black Flag -- Damaged: YES, TOP 5
17) Suicide -- Suicide: NOPE
16) Dead Kennedys -- Plastic Surgery Disasters: OH YES 
15) Bad Brains -- Bad Brains: FUCK YEAH
14) The Clash -- London Calling: I'M PARTIAL TO THE S/T, BUT OKAY
13) Gang of Four -- Entertainment!: NO
12) Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers -- L.A.M.F.: NO
11) X-Ray Spex -- Germ Free Adolescents: BORDERLINE, BUT NO
10) Bedlam -- Bedlam: NO
9) Richard Hell and the Voidoids -- Blank Generation: NO
8) Minor Threat -- Out of Step: DEFINITELY TOP 5
7) Wire -- Pink Flag: NO  6) Misfits -- Walk Among Us: YES
5) Buzzcocks -- Singles Going Steady: YES
4) Dead Boys -- Young, Loud and Snotty: I'M SUPPOSED TO SAY YES BUT NO
3) X -- Los Angeles: KIND OF OVERRATED BUT YES
2) The Ramones -- Leave Home: S/T FTW BUT OF COURSE
1) The Sex Pistols -- Never Mind the Bollocks: YES, BUT NOT #1

So choosing jist from this list, top 5 should be

  1. CIRCLE JERKS
  2. RAMONES
  3. DESCENDENTS
  4. BLACK FLAG
  5. MINOR THREAT

with BAD BRAINS replacing 3-5 depending on mood. DK just misses the cut as well.

You agree, right?
