Top Ten LGBT Punk Rock Bands

It is my pleasure to present ten of the best bands in punkdom that embraced their LGBT roots and took to the airwaves. Am I an expert in queer theory? No. Not at all. But I know what I like, and these bands rage right there alongside their straight contemporaries. And while many of my gay friends will prefer to hear Madonna, I will endeavor to abstain from mentioning her in this list for the obvious reason.
