punk reached its climax with The Table. if you haven't danced to "do the standing still" then you haven't lived. i suppose that the sex pistols would come out on top of my list of influential punks, and they did produce a couple of great singles. anarchy in the uk is i think along with the clash's london calling the only punk in the rolling stone top 500 records of all time.
for more recent records i have a liking for arcade fire and clap your hands which both exibit some punkish tendancies.
Metal and Punk !
As an older dude I now exchange recommendations with my son and have started going to gigs again after a long absence. Don't get too precious, it's just great to hear young bands who care about what they're playing.
See what I keep coming back to in discussions like this is don't rule anything out. everybody will have favourites, probably coming from what you hear at a particular age, if you say punk, for anybody my age nothing is gonna beat the thrill of hearing Anarchy In The UK the week it came out, but still I can get a kick out of my son's excitement at a new track from a current punk/metal band. Rock / Run on. :d :d :d
