Best The Jam Songs

I've been waiting for this list for quite a while so I thought I'd make my own.

The Top Ten

1 Going Underground Going Underground Cover Art

This is such a great song

The best of a fantastic bunch

its great and catchy

I agree

2 Town Called Malice Town Called Malice Cover Art

This is the Jam's most famous song. Appeared in so many films! Its so good. For me, its definitely in the top spot. Every instrument in the song is key! LOVE WELLER'S VOICE!

Don't get me wrong, I love the jam and their style, but I like this so much because it is different. The gift has a totally different style and this is the best on it. Great lyrics, such an upbeat dancy song.

The jam at their best

I can't believe it's not #1. JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

3 Down in the Tube Station at Midnight Down in the Tube Station at Midnight Cover Art

Brilliant commentary. Brilliant music. "Atheist nutter."

Because they took the keys and she'll think its me...

A true masterpiece! One of The Jam's and England's most brilliant song. Needs to be in the number one spot!
'And I'm down in the tube station at midnight oh whoa oh ohh ohh! ' <--- iconic land famous lyrics in England.
Its our country's national anthem!

Love this tune! Absolutely amazing! :D

4 That's Entertainment That's Entertainment Cover Art

England's best song along with Bittersweet Symphony. Should easily be placed at no. 1! This song represents all that The Jam were about.

Best Jam track of all time in my opinion

One of the coolest songs ever... !

My favourite Jam song!

5 The Eton Rifles The Eton Rifles Cover Art

Class warfare, in suburban tones with English inferiority complex built-in

Almost as good as the clash

6 Start Start Cover Art

Kind of stunned this is not in the top ten. It's got the catchy Beatles Taxman riff and some good lines "If we communicate for just two minutes only that would be A...Start! "

One of the first singles I owned, with 'Lisa Radley' on the B side

7 Beat Surrender Beat Surrender Cover Art

Best ever x

8 The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow) The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow) Cover Art

Top song this reminds me of my life

9 The Modern World The Modern World Cover Art
10 Strange Town Strange Town Cover Art

Fantastic song from the best band ever

The Contenders

11 When You're Young When You're Young Cover Art

Absolutely love this song. Lyrics are fantastic and guitar tops it off. Still get goose bumps listening to it

Awesome song- its what I play to feel better.

The greatest in a great run of singles from Tue Station to Going Underground. Pure pop genius.

12 The Butterfly Collector The Butterfly Collector Cover Art

Almost hypnotic in its verses. Beautiful.

Sneery lyrics... haunting tempo changes... a masterpiece

13 Absolute Beginners Absolute Beginners Cover Art
14 Ghosts Ghosts Cover Art

Good that it is in the top ten but, it EASILY HAS TO BE IN THE TOP THREE! This song is a mix of their slow singing and melodic guitar, making it one of their best. VOTE UP!

Simply his best Jam poetry

Wonderful thought provoking tune. Loved it as a 15 yr old as I do today.

15 In the City In the City Cover Art

Great song. Fast, melodic, a great blend of their earlier punk and later pop sound

Is the best song of The Jam even better than Town called Malice

A famed song by The Jam, and rightly so. Has to be their number 1!

16 Funeral Pyre Funeral Pyre Cover Art
17 English Rose English Rose Cover Art

My favourite song of all time! So slow and peaceful. The singing is angelic. On of the world's best songs. Has to be in the top three of any list. It makes me cry! Such a piece of art.

A truly beautiful song from The Jam.

Beautiful acoustic tune

18 Man In the Corner Shop Man In the Corner Shop Cover Art

Classic suburban song!

I think this is a amazingly catchy song - one of my favourites - so why is it #16?

One of my favourite Jam songs. The song still brings tears to my eyes. A soaring La la la la la chorus that takes you aeay to other places. You can't listen to this without being moved

19 Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero? Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero? Cover Art
20 Private Hell Private Hell Cover Art

Incredibly powerful lyrics. Intense energy. Quite simply, in my humble opinion, the best Jam song ever

21 News of the World News of the World Cover Art

How is this not on the list?

Mock the week theme song

22 In the Crowd In the Crowd Cover Art

Was always my favourite one

23 Monday Monday Cover Art

By far my favorite
