Best and Worst of 2012 (The 1,2, Fuck You List)

2012 I will remember as one of the best Punk Years ever. I doubt that I even back in the early 80ies during the punk and Oi! years saw as many good concerts as this. Both new fresh bands and old timers still going strong. There was both biiiiig events as the West Coast Riot festival and Dropkick Murphys, Iggy and the Stooges and The Hives filling up Gröna Lund to the max. As the were a few people showing up in a club or at Gula Villan for some amazing well played, whitty and hard punk. Infact there was so much going on that I missed some, didn´t had the energy to attend some.

What can we look forward to make it even better the next year? Well, the crowd could get bigger at many clubs. The bands deserve bigger crowds and you deserve to see theese bands.
There are new records comming next year with bands like Rancid, Vänsternäven and Dropkick Murphys. And Possibly will Ligisterna get it going as well. Not to mention all the bands that Im not aware of their struggle for the perfect mix for their next masterpiece, is Nej among those? Cheers all you Punx, Skunx, Muses, Chix, Skins, Progs, Metals and Others.
