REAL punk, not recent whino-punk. I'll allow Bad Religion and The Descendents

"Police on my Back" by The Clash

"Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" by The Ramones (aw hell, at least 30 Ramones songs could sub in its place

"New Rose" by The Damned

"In The City" by The Jam (borderline punk, at best, but a great song)

"Police State" by the U.K. Subs

Holiday in Cambodia - Dead Kennedys
I wanna be sedated - Ramones
Anything really by the Ramones/Clash/Dead Kennedys/Bad Religion et al.
I could go on and on. I think you should also allow NOFX in this crowd as they currently hold the mantle for Punk Rock that still has radical/confrontational lyrics about society not "I lost my girlfriend and she sucks" kinda shit like a lot of 'So Cal' Punk.

When I was young and stupid, I used to listen to Ministry when I was stoned. Couldn't tell you the name of one damn song, but I do remember listening to it.

This song wasn't really considered "punk", but at the time, it was pretty edgy. The song is, "Turning Japanese" by the Vapors.

The Clash: "London Calling," "Death or Glory," "Clash City Rockers," "Bank Robber" (if their cover counts as punk), "White Riot," many many others...

The Damned: "Plan 9 Channel 7," "Love Song," "Rabid," "Melody Lee," "Wait for the Blackout," some later stuff too which maybe counts more as Goth than punk...

Stiff Little Fingers: "Suspect Device," "Nobody's Hero," "Doesn't Make it Alright"

Adverts: "One Chord Wonders"

X-Ray Spex (surely has to count): "Germ-Free Adolescents"

The Pogues (I'm going to count them definitely): "London You're a Lady" (some of the greatest poetry ever put to rock music), "The Broad Majestic Shannon," "The Body of an American," "A Man You Don't Meet Every Day," "Dark Streets of London," "Young Ned of the Hill," and for the Punkness factor: "Fiesta"

Operation Ivy: "Freeze Up," "Jaded"

Descendents: "Myage," "Clean Sheets"

Bad Religion: "You," "Billy," "Big Bang," "Anastasia"

Social Distortion, "Ball and Chain"

Rancid: "Detroit," "Radio" (7-inch version) [This is some of the best real punk of recent years]

I'm sure I'll think of more. Thanks for making me get out some great old music I haven't listened to for a while....

I'm gonna have to go with The Clash's London Calling, the Sex Pistols with God Save the Queen, and I know you're all going to flog me for this but what the hell, I'll throw in the Jesus of Suburbia medley by Green Day for lyrical reasons.

Ramones: I wanna be sedated, Rock N' Roll High School. too many to list really.

Dead Kennedys: too many to list really, but Ill list a few. Holiday in Cambodia, Kill The Poor, California Uber Alles, Forest Fire, Halloween

Misfits: Halloween, Hybrid Moments, Bullet, Horror Hotel, We Bite; also too many to list

Circle Jerks: World up my Ass

Angry Samoans: Right Side of my Mind

Bad Religion: Fuck Armaggedeon this is Hell, Yesterday

NOFX: theres a few songs, but their names escape me at the moment.

I'm so sick of this so-called "punk" that is coming out as of late. This emo shit just boils my blood. Real punk has been dead, or on life support since the late 80s.

I've been asking LHMark to hook me up with a listof good punk songs for about a year now. So what does he do? He starts a thread and gets A.net to do it for him. Lazy ass.  Wink

"Bloodstains" - Agent Orange
"Holidays in the Sun" - Pistols (Anything from Bollocks really)

I have a couple disks I made of punk but I'll be damned if I can remember the titles.

Just checking the thread to make sure somebody had mentioned "Institutionalized" by Suicidal Tendencies. Someone above had, so carry on!

I seem to enjoy the "poppier" side of punk (Clash London Calling album, "Alone Again Or" by The Damned and "Ever Fallen in Love?" by The Buzzcocks, but Institutionalized is a great song.
