Essential California Punk Rock

I have to say up front...this is a really flipping long list!

I also need to point out before you read it and realize something missing...I did NOT include any songs by Descendents/All because this band got their own Essentials list. If I had not already done a list for them, all of the songs on that list most certainly would have ended up on this one as well.

Also, NOFX is not on this list either because they were on the previous Essential Epitaph list.

So without further yapping, here is the list. Enjoy!

  1. Great list! Did you have some Bad Religion stuff on the Epitaph list though?

  2. I did! Very good observation.

    If you remember though, they had a few albums that were not on Epitaph so I felt compelled to include all of their stuff instead of just the non-Epi stuff.
