Miami's 20 Best Punk Bands of All Time
18. Menstrual Cycles
Perhaps Miami's first Oi!/punk band, Menstrual Cycles wasn't short on the Reagan-era angst and the juvenile humor that makes their Retirement Home EP enjoyable 31 years later. The trio consisted of Skin on bass, Hippie on drums and $hock on vocals and guitars. By all accounts, these guys were way too young to hang out at most clubs but their youthful energy is certainly timeless.
17. The Essentials
Walter Cz, Steve Sincere and the dearly departed Pete Moss brought their guns blazing with their Fast Music in a Slow Town four song EP. Their track "Turn Off Your Radio" is a local classic and an unheeded warning for many today. These guys would go on to appear in different bands throughout the years but their lone recording as a trio is pure power pop deliciousness.
