The Dickies for me the most striking example for pointing out the difference between classics and essential when it comes to punk. Both singles are classics, when I first discovered English punk, I heard these two singles and both the singles show up in a lot of articles on English punk. But still if I haven’t heard these before, did I miss out on something? I don’t think I did it. Two fun singles but nowhere as essential as The Clash, The Damned, The Ruts or Sex Pistols.
