Greatest Punk Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Isobel Goudie - The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

Punk or not? Decide for yourself.
In the days when punk hit the peak, Alex Harvey was considered as one of its icons. Retrospectively, he always denied that.
A masterpiece nonetheless. - Gulf5

He was a bridge between old school and punk. Great showman.

162 Shut Up - Blink-182
163 The Music or the Misery - Fall Out Boy
164 Bound for the Floor - Local H

Local H has about 50 songs that are MORE PUNK than this one. Check out DEEP CUT, manipulator, creature comforted, no fun, and BLUR

165 Try Honesty - Billy Talent

The first song of but is just at 141! I don't understand

166 Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue - The Ramones

You guys know the ramones had other songs besides blitkrieg bop

167 Roots Radicals - Rancid V 1 Comment
168 Dammit - Blink-182

Why are songs like I Miss You higher than this. Not only is this way more punk, that song isn't even pop punk

Extremely catchy, nice lyrics and guitar riff.

169 Guilty by Association - H2O
170 Ain't No Rest for the Wicked - Cage the Elephant V 1 Comment
171 Clone Town - TV Smith

If it moved up by 290 places, it would still be 4 places too far down.

172 Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy
173 Rockaway Beach - The Ramones

I like this song but its punked forever

174 Cretin Hop - Ramones

Undeniably punk and a song for cretins everywhere. Slashing Johnny guitar, Joey's adamant vocals, and makes you feel like going bonkers! - shawnwalker

175 Down On the Street - The Stooges
176 Boredom - Buzzcocks

Classic Buzzcocks

177 You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory - Johnny Thunders

Saw Walter Lure live in Leeds last week and he did this song. Beautiful and very emotional. Great gig, anyway. Love Ronnie Spector's version too. "Don't try".

178 I Don't Wanna Know - New Found Glory
179 Here Comes the Summer - The Undertones

What a summer song indeed!
The band's lead singer - Feargal Sharkey - had a couple of UK Top Ten Hits later on, but performing a significantly different kind of music! - Gulf5

180 Death of Me - Red
