Okay, so after a lot of research, it turns out that The Clash/Ramones did pioneer the the original sound of punk rock. However, I was able to find that hardcore headbanging punk has some interesting origins. It's all about a little band called Bad Brains, who date as far back as '77, and can be credited with the greatest innovation in punk fashion: the safety pin! Be sure to find the track "Pay To Cum", it's an incredible eye-opener.

There's also talk of Pure Hell, who are purported to predate The Sex Pistols, but I haven't been able to find any of their stuff, as they were incredibly underground. No doubt some answers could be found in the Afropunk documentary, but that would just be cheating on my part.

But there you have it, the culmination of my research.
