This is a list of the highest regarded and most influential punk and hardcore records. Some are not necessarily what I would consider the best, but are on the list due to their importance. I tried to keep this list pre-2000's (and, for the most part, pre-1990's), but I allowed a couple of albums that are considered by many to be modern classics on.
I am using this as a checklist for myself and am adding a * to each album I buy on vinyl.
