Greatest Punk Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory - Johnny Thunders

Saw Walter Lure live in Leeds last week and he did this song. Beautiful and very emotional. Great gig, anyway. Love Ronnie Spector's version too. "Don't try".

182 I Don't Wanna Know - New Found Glory
183 Here Comes the Summer - The Undertones

What a summer song indeed!
The band's lead singer - Feargal Sharkey - had a couple of UK Top Ten Hits later on, but performing a significantly different kind of music! - Gulf5

184 Death of Me - Red
185 Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll - Ian Dury & the Blockheads
186 Atomic Garden - Bad Religion
187 I Was Wrong - Social Distortion
188 Salvation - Rancid
189 Minimum Wage - Fenix TX
190 Peaches - The Stranglers

I cannot believe that the Stranglers first entry is number 153! There is no better band in the world, this track is one of their best.

Come on people... "Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches"

191 Dumpweed - Blink 182

Awesome Guitar, Awesome Lyrics, fast rhythm, Purely genius

192 Banned in D.C. - Bad Brains

I can't believe that half of these are bands such as Paramore, they aren't even punk! Go back to the true punk attitude like Hardcore, Bad Brains are the kings of this and this song is my ultimate number 1 punk song!

193 Flavor of the Weak - American Hi-Fi
194 The Patient Ferris Wheel - The Gaslight Anthem

How is it possible to forget about the gaslight anthem? Great song, great band! Should be at least 9th or 10th! That's such an inspirational song, you can't help listening to it again and again. I've been a fan of Green Day, but now Gaslight is the best for me without any doubt!

195 Streets - Avenged Sevenfold
196 Helena - My Chemical Romance

This song is amazing and it actually has a true meaning. You can tell by the way Gerard gets emotional when he sings this song (which he wrote about his grandmother who passed away R.I.P. ). He loved her very much, and when his parents wouldn't support his music career and creativity when he was a child, she did.

197 The Crusher - The Ramones
198 I Believe In Miracles - The Ramones
199 Bad Reputation - Joan Jett
200 Sailin' On - Bad Brains V 1 Comment
