Greatest Punk Songs of All Time

41 Stay Together for the Kids - Blink-182
42 I Miss You - Blink 182

Are you kidding me? this isn't punk! this isn't even pop punk! this is an alternative rock song! this isn't supposed to be in this list!

Everyone knows this song, even if you don't like this music you've heard it

This is not even a punk rock or pop punk song at all; it is alternative rock. I wonder how this song came in this list, but it is a good song.

Don't waste your time on me, you're already the voice inside my head.

43 Progress - Bad Religion

Bad religion is the best punk band in my opinion. They have decent lyrics, a good sound and have been making plenty of good music. Also they haven't broken up yet like so many punk bands. It's dissapointing to see Green Days American idiot song, which isn't punk at all, in the top ten. Bad religion is much better than Green Day and deserves to be in the top ten ASAP

Weird choice, but I have to agree. Every bad religion song should be within the top 500

44 Poison Heart - Ramones

Excellent Dee Dee composition and Joey's vocals are just gut wrenchingly powerful. A dark attack/acknowledgement of this apathetic world. Has great Johnny punk guitars and a fantastic Joey vocal performance that conveys really powerful emotions. Underrated punk gem and one of the best songs ever period. - shawnwalker

Most of the time Johnny Ramone's barre chord riffs become monotonous. Though those are great. But this riff is more technically played. More unique sound. - zxm

45 Train In Vain - The Clash
46 Murder on the Airwaves - Zebrahead

Finally! Zebrahead gets a shout on one of these lists

47 The Guns of Brixton - The Clash

Just look how many covers of this song was made. This song is the best mix of reggae and punk.

Killer bass line. Another work of musical art by the Clash.

48 White Riot - The Clash

A true punk anthem. Absolutely should be in the top 10.

The B-Side '1977' was one of the best punks songs ever made. The Kinks brought uip to date...

A punk anthem. Even though they didn't originally write it, it was the Clash who immortalized it.
