The DKs are for many people the original
hardcore band. Not for me, I'd probably put the Germs there, but in a popular sense they sure are. You saying they are not a hardcore band reminds me of a discussion I once had with this girl who said she hated all New Wave. I pointed out that she loved the Police, and she insisted they were NOT New Wave.
Sure the bad bands way outnumber the good in hardcore, so tell me which genre that isn't true with again?
