Sex Pistols Kerrang Magazine has decided to make a list of what they think are the top 50 best punk albums of all time. Though the magazine's choices are sometimes controversial, most of the inarguably important records easily made the list, including contributions from the Sex Pistols, Fugazi, Stooges, Rancid, Stiff Little Fingers, The Clash, Nirvana, Dead Kennedys and Minor Threat as well as some more controversial fodder like Blink-182, Green Day, Get Up Kids and AFI.
