    i know this thread title probably looks like flamebait/trollbait, im hoping it attracts views, haha

    of the two, which do y'all think has had more influence on contemporary punk? not only just in terms of musically, but lyrically, aesthetically, the way the bands functioned within a larger community, ethics, etc. not necessarily which one is better (apples to oranges, imo), but which of the two has had the most lasting impact on punk and hardcore.

    I would also say Discharge, even if I don't like them and I don't know any of their songs :D

    Definitely Discharge

    For d-beat and the abundance of Dis-bands alone shows the impact they've made.

    Plus they're still going strong (a version of them at least) showing people how it's done

    I don't know, it's a toss up. Clearly Discharge is more musically influential from inspiring D-Beat and Crust to virtually every metal band that mattered. But Minor Threat was one of the very first DIY type bands at least in the sense of breaking down the space between musician and fan, the realization that you didn't need much money to get albums out, setting up your own label, releasing other bands through it, etc... Maybe Minor Threat was more important on the small level, Discharge on the larger one - politically, their sound, and their overall influence over time. If I were trying to explain my worldview and could only bring one of these bands' albums in to highlight my point, Discharge for sure. Yet Minor Threat had an impressive community impact that can't be denied.
