42 Heaven Knows - Rise Against
43 Pay to C** - Bad Brains
44 (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone - Sex Pistols
45 My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down - The Ramones
46 Stay Together for the Kids - Blink-182
47 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

48 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

49 The River - Good Charlotte

Just a brilliant song! And its featuring members of my favorite band. Nothing better than this. Fat Lip would be my second pick.

I love this song so much, the lyrics are so meaningful. This song has helped me through a lot, and it features 2 members from my all time favorite band. Truly a masterpiece if you havnt heard it your missing out on a lot

I love love love this tune, one of the better ones of new good charlotte!

This song is the best, I don't really think it is a punk song, but the lyrics in this is so great and guitar work in this is absoloutly mad! Vote for The River! It is a perfect song by a legendary ban

50 Murder on the Airwaves - Zebrahead

Finally! Zebrahead gets a shout on one of these lists

51 I Fought the Law - The Clash

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

52 My War - Black Flag V 1 Comment
53 Bodies - Sex Pistols

Amazing, totally underrated song...

Amazing song. The aggression captivates punk in a single song.

54 Still Breathing - Green Day
55 Silly Thing - Sex Pistols
56 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...
