Punk-Rock musicians (1975-1979)

I'm personally in love with the punk-rock era of the late 70's. The music created was simply genius, taking that into account I've compiled a few of the bands from that era and shoved them into this whopping playlist for you all to enjoy.

The Undertones

Like I said earlier, these are my personal choices, they may not be the same as everyone else's opinions, but, take what I say on board, who knows, you may agree with me! If you haven't heard any of these bands, I'd advise you to listen as you'll take a lot more in about the punk-rock era and develop a love for them. 
They'll always have a place in my record collection and should too, in yours.
