Rolling Stone's 40 Greatest Punk Albums of All Time (Gay Division)

Rolling Stone posted their list of the 40 greatest punk albums of all time and while there are some questionable choices throughout, we can absolutely get behind the queer punks who made the cut. 

We won't say being gay automatically makes you punk, but it certainly reframes how you look at things. 

The Germs:

Sleater Kinney:

Hüsker Dü 

The Buzzcocks:

(and sort of) The Stooges:
