Greatest Punk Songs of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
I think the Stooges where the first band to play music that we would recognise as punk now in the late 60's. The first punk ad to be him Morrison of the doors, what a guy, recognized by Iggy as a massive influence!
1969, brill, anyone who hasn't heard this album have a listen. Fairplay to everyone who put Green Day up. Punk was about being yourself and having fun!
Iggy Pop's masterpiece from 1969 (! ), being way ahead of its time. He was one of the pioneers when it comes to punk music. - Gulf5
If you listen to no fun by the stooges I think you quickly realise how poor the Pistols version is.
The Pistols version kicks the crap out of the Stooges version! Unlike you, I like both, but the Pistols version is much more raw and well, fun. - shawnwalkerV 3 Comments
This song starts a new era for the punk-rock. Awesome!
The Offspring is the best punk rock band ever, here on this list is missing musics from them, but I can say just one to beat every other listed here: The Kids Aren't Alright.
WHAT!? There need to be more songs by The Offspring at the high end of this list.
It should enter the top ten..
why is it in number 23..?!
One of the greatest songs written. Backed up by great music.V 1 Comment
If we're talking best PUNK rock songs, the offspring should be in the top 10!
The offspring should at least be in the top 5!
Their riff and why they wrote song is enough for top 5.
Great intro, Great solo, and especially Great lyrics. I'm happy that they wrote a song about reality, this song may be depressing but it's the truth. #TheOffspring.
I recommend this song to any guitarists who's looking for a challenging and great song.
That's because boulevard and 21 guns aren't even punk rock at all
This songs is way more punk than Boulevard of Broken Dreams or 21 Guns.
Boulevard of Broken Dreams and 21 Guns is mainly alternative rock - zxm

No argument - ever
Definitely top 20 - Cyrobian
The opener for the first punk rock album in the UK. Can't get any more classic than that.
This needs to be higher meine friends
This song lasted for so long and is still riot worthy!
Black flag for the win!
By the way, I don't think sellouts like Green Day should be in this list
Makes you wanna punch someone
RISE ABOVE... Green Day, Sum 41, and Blink-182V 1 Comment
It's generally regarded as the first British Punk-Rock-Single (released 22/10/76) and remains a timeless classic, therefore belongs in Top 5. What's wrong with the people who vote for this lists?V 2 Comments
For New Noise to not even be in the Top 10 is a tragedy.
Green Day has few songs down the list but apart from Basket Case, Longview and Welcome to Paradise, there more of Green Day's alt rock style! This song however is a mix of both styles and I love it! Jesus of Suburbia is the Stairway to Heaven of Punk Rock! - micdanchris
Annoying how to best songs are put at the worst place. Green Day all the way!
This song is the anthem of my life. Could listen to it all day.
This is a musical masterpiece. The Bohemian Rhapsody of punk rock. - Skymoon22V 2 Comments
This is truly an epic song. It's so awesome and the band has such a unique sound. It's like Irish pirate music with electric guitars and drums!
This song is simply the best. It's a great love song my ex and I listen to. - airscene
This should have been the No.1 Song of All genres and of all time!
Shocked there isn't more Clash in the top 10. Rock the Casbah is a masterpiece.
