533. Crass

If any band could have been classified as too Punk for Punk, it may have been the leaders of the Anarchist Punk Movement, Crass. This was a band that did not just sing about anarchy and change; they lived it. There was no topic they did not have an opinion on and they followed what they believed was Punk ideology to the letter. With such hardcore beliefs, Crass was never capable of reaching any level of the mainstream but there was no band on this list that would have rejected more than this band (and there are some on this list who certainly would have). The rejection letter they would send the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame upon any induction would make the Sex Pistols seem tame by comparison. Of course, the chances of Crass getting that invite are next to nonexistent anyway.

Listen to the song "Where Next Columbus" and read the lyrics. Perhaps you may understand.

I think if Crass ever gets inducted into the Rock Hall the world will explode.

The album is 'The feeding of the 5000' not the 'feeling'
