Greatest Punk Songs of All Time
The Contenders: Page 7
This was the guy that inspired the punk rock look and the concept behind the sex pistols. So much better than anything Green Day or Blink 182 has ever put out.
It's a punk-anthem like 'Born to lose', 'Bored Teenagers', 'Search and Destroy' or 'White Riot' and belongs in the Top 40, at least.
The Pistols stole Richard's look and Pretty Vacant was "inspired" by this song. Much more talent and creativity at work here.
At first I thought it said vocaloids and I got really confusedV 2 Comments
this song is the freakin best - bleaghh
Bad Brains are punk legends.
Yes! Bad Brains people!
it doesn't make sense that Green Day and blink 182 have songs in the top ten. This song rules! Definetley an anthem of Straight Edge Punk. - thomasnirvanastroud
Fugazi-Waiting Room, true classic punk
70 doesn't sound good. Either in the top ten or nothing
What! It should be the top 10!
... And out come the wolves is one of the best punk rock albums. It is a shame that songs from blink 182 comes before any of this album
Every song on this album should be much higher. Come on people! Time Bomb? Maxwell Murders? don't let Blink 182 or AFI rank higher than this masterpieceV 1 Comment
Very punk. Love how there are string instruments added to this
One word emo!
Okay, since nobody else is doing it, I guess I'll chime in with a HAVEN'T YOU PEOPLE EVER HEARD OF CLOSING THE ******* DOOR, NO? IT'S MUCH BETTER TO FACE THESE KINDS OF THINGS WITH A SENSE OF POISE AND RATIONALITY!
This was a first generation punk song, came out in 1977 - has all the attitude!
Mine and billie joe armstrong's favourite song of the album
Seriously, you voted wake me up before September ends ahead of this song?
All the Green Day and nostalgic Ramones fans skewing the votes. I still can't believe this is so low.
NOFX Get's the least credit I think even know they don't have a hit they still are one of the most lucky independent punk bands because they've been together for a long time. Longer than most punk bands have so I think this song deserves more credit besides Good Charlotte isn't even punk that doesn't deserve to be before Franco Un-American. This list is the worst.
I love the used they have such passion for their music
I love this song!! and the video! Like a punk version of Romeo and Juliet
Not Really Punk But very Good Song - CoreytaylorAh!!!
