Just bookmark this page and start from the top when you're bored man. No rush.



Those are most of the biggest bands in the genre.



Joy Division is great but they're no indication of what the other bands sound like.



Thats what makes post-punk so cool to me. How experimental it is while still being catchy.



Dem basslines.

Ive been interested in checking pink flag by wire

Its one of the few albums Anthony Fantano has goven a 10 to, so could be good

Then again he did give Death Grips a 10, so could be beyond awful
