380. The Mekons

Long lasting careers have never been the staple of most Punk bands, but the Mekons were not your average Punk band. In their near thirty year career their seemed to be no musical style that they haven’t flirted with and it was always done with the wry sense of humor that they became known for. Despite their interesting and diverse catalogue of music, the Mekons maintained a loyal fan base which is rare for an act that altered their sound so frequently. Likely, this was due to the band’s ability to always sound “real”; an attribute that is not found in a lot of today’s (or any day’s) music.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2004   Country of Origin: United Kingdom (Leeds, England)   Nominated In: Never   NIHOF’s Favorite Album: Fear and Whiskey (1985)   NIHOF’s Favorite Song: Trimdon Grange Explosion (From The Mekons Honky Tonkin’, 1987){acepolls 376}
