Haven't posted any punk yet, so here's some old U.K. punk following in the footsteps of such legendary bands as the Clash and the Buzzcocks. The Undertones '79 self-titled debut album is about as close to a perfect pop punk album you're going to find, the album is full of teenage angst and 2-3 minute songs with absolutely no pretension. The Northern Ireland (Derry) band disbanded in 1983 after only their fourth album. Sharkey Feargal's whiny ass voice works well over the band's young brash sound, especially in "Teenage Kicks."
