Punk Songs With the Best LyricsTo be honest most people don't pay attention to the lyrics in punk songs. This is a list showing my top ten songs when considering how the lyrics and beat flow.
The Top Ten
The best analogies, metaphors, and symbolism, all while pertaining to the plotline of the rock opera *and* the modern age. No small feat.
I'm wondering how many number ones Green Day have in this web site and how many songs and albums are up to the top 10 love Green Day!

its about his dad dying thats pretty deep
This song is not even remotely punk rock - SmileyStudios
Not really the best lyrically song by RA in my opinion although it is better lyrically than Holiday by GD, I guess this is just a popularity competition other then a best punk lyrics list, but lets be real isn't it though?
This song is real punk rock. Nirvana? RHCP? Weezer? They aren't punk! However, this song is so great; Rise Against is the best punk band ever? - rock2metal
Rise Against is the best band in the world, Green Day can't even be compared to these guys. This is probably rise against's best song so the best song of the best band = win.
Since when would Weezer be considered punk?!
I know its iffy but the red hot chili peppers in my mind are punk it takes guts to confess to a heroine addiction
Awesome song will go down as one of the greats!
Great lyrics, but not punk!
Love the Chilis but this is a punk list
For a song to be 9:08 minutes long and still be as interesting deserves the number 1 spot. - georgielikesgreenday
Love all there song. But for me this is their most complete offering to date. Fantastic song from the start to the end.
Green Day has the best punk lyrics - mr_crossover27
The most complete song I have ever heard from GD. it has everything!
Best screaming rage song ever.
The lyrics in this song are vague yet easy to relate to. And yes, Nirvana is punk.
Nirvana isn't punk per se but these lyrics are good. You kind of listen to it and you're like... What? But then you kind of see the hidem meaning in it as you listen more
yes I know rise against number 2 but Tim McIlrath lyrics are fantastic
THIS is real punk... not Green Day or Fall Out Boy. This are tru punk lyricsV 1 Comment
This song is simply incredible. The lyrics are beautifully written, and can relate to anyone. - RiseAgainstSOT
Lets at least get The Stooges past Billy Idol... Please!
Dead Kennedys and this are the only two legitimate songs on this list of punk lyrics.
And this one isn't even punk, Stooges are the grandfathers of punk. '90s pop punk or just wearing eyeliner is not punk. Where are the Ramones? Where's Sex Pistols? Bikini Kill? Sonic Youth? Replacements? Black Flag? Ugh my soul hurts.
Unfortunately, the sample here is the worst version possible - listen to "Useless" for better understanding and, ideally, see him live!
good wordplay one of his more poppy songs
Simply the pinnacle of punk lyrics. "Dance, dance we're falling apart to half time..."
