Greatest Punk Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Down in the Tube Station at Midnight - The Jam

A true classic. And what brilliant lyrics! They perfectly reflect Britain's social climate in the late 70s. - Gulf5

A truly great song, Waller at his hard hitting best.

162 Mongoloid - Devo

Not a punk song in its classical meaning, but Devo's punk roots cannot be ignored. A true classic as well. - Gulf5

163 Kick & Run - Jingo de Lunch

German punk band. Very rare!
The corresponding LP "Axe to grind" is a collector's item. - Gulf5

164 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.

165 Shut Up - Blink-182
166 The Music or the Misery - Fall Out Boy
167 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

168 Try Honesty - Billy Talent

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

169 Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue - The Ramones

You guys know the ramones had other songs besides blitkrieg bop

170 Roots Radicals - Rancid V 1 Comment
171 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.

172 Guilty by Association - H2O
173 Ain't No Rest for the Wicked - Cage the Elephant V 1 Comment
174 Clone Town - TV Smith

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

175 Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy
176 Rockaway Beach - The Ramones

I like this song but its punked forever

177 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

178 Down On the Street - The Stooges
179 Boredom - Buzzcocks

Classic Buzzcocks

180 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".
