Six Punk Bands We Don't Need To Talk About Anymore

5. The Casualties

Another band I've never given a chance to, the Casualties always struck me as the pinnacle of something that's trying too hard. It's like if there was a band where every member was a street punk version of Travis Barker or Tommy Lee. Also, recently some unsavory allegations were made about the band that allege sexual assault, in this article that made the rounds last week. Something to think about. And regardless, we'd better get far away from this fashion-punk crap before we fall down a rabbit hole clogged with dyed pubic hair.

Instead, let's talk about some metal bands that like weed.

6. The Misfits

I love The Misfits. We all do, which is precisely why we shouldn't talk about them anymore. So many people like the Misfits that sometimes you have to ask yourself how many people wearing the skull logo t-shirt think that it represents a clothing company? Who knows. Who cares. Punk is for losers.
