Greatest Punk Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Blank Generation - Richard Hell & the Voidoids

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 confused

122 I Against I - Bad Brains

this song is the freakin best - bleaghh

Bad Brains are punk legends.

Yes! Bad Brains people!

123 Waiting Room - Fugazi

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!

124 Time Bomb - Rancid

... 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 masterpiece

125 Punk Rock Song - Bad Religion
126 Carousel - Blink-182
127 I Write Sins Not Tragedies - Panic! at the Disco

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!

128 My Way - The Sex Pistols
129 Lust for Life - Iggy Pop

This was a first generation punk song, came out in 1977 - has all the attitude!

130 Going Underground - The Jam
131 Letterbomb - Green Day

Mine and billie joe armstrong's favourite song of the album

132 Big Take Over - Bad Brains
133 Pretty Vacant - Sex Pistols V 1 Comment
134 Linoleum - Nofx

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.

135 Franco Un-American - NOFX

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.

136 Pattern Against User - At the Drive-In
137 Borstal Breakout - Sham 69
138 Best for You - Bad Religion
139 The Taste of Ink - The Used

I love the used they have such passion for their music

140 Not Good Enough for the Truth in Cliche - Escape the Fate

I love this song!! and the video! Like a punk version of Romeo and Juliet

Not Really Punk But very Good Song - CoreytaylorAh!!!
