    I've never heard the term before.

    Oh, the Damned should have been Kings of Punk, the fools, they squandered it away. The first punk single (in the UK). The first punks on the telly. The first punk band to break up.

    Their first few albums were mostly great and then, like the Stranglers, they started playing with more synthesizers and less plot.

    Personally, I barely classify Sham 69 and the Oi bands as music, but if you know a good album of theirs to point me to I'm willing to reconsider.

    Husker Du? Punk? I mean, I see why, but they always seemed more of the hardcore/alternative 80s scene to me. Brilliant and powerful with hooks to spare.

    Incidentally, Mr. Mulligan, are you by chance stately and plump (no offense intended)?
