He's going off of a list that was pre-made by some pretentious music nazis, so I wouldn't give it too much thought.

Most of these albums aren't even good. Music people always treat punk like some fad that existed from 1976-1981, so anything released during that period automatically gets bumped on any list. A handful of those bands were really good, but a lot of it was just noise. The Sex Pistols in particular were really important from a historical and philosophical perspective, but that album has three good songs on it. The absences of the Damned, the Buzzcocks, Rancid, NOFX, the Bouncing Souls, Cock Sparrer, Green Day, Social D, and Bad Religion are pretty baffling when you consider some of the albums that made this list.
