The Top Five Punk Rock Songs

To me “Punk Rock” was the movement in the late 70's that reignited the existing music scene. Out of nowhere kids were wearing safety pins through their noses and coloring their hair in colors never seen before. There was monstrous energy in the air summed up by the Sex Pistols lyric “Don't know what I want but I know how to get it”. Get ready for some old school “F@#$ You” music.


The Clash “London Calling”



To me, this was THE punk rock song. It had all the anger and all the boot stomping fury that was needed. It didn't matter that it was about London, it was really about passion. The Clash never gave us a definitive video or live version, so here's the studio cut.



The Sex Pistols “Anarchy In The U.K.”



I think the Pistols played the part of “bratty little brother” in the scene. While The Clash fought for change, the Pistols just wanted to fight. This video may be the best representation of the scene ever.



The Ramones “Blitzkrieg Bop”



The Pistols and the Clash wouldn't have existed without The Ramones. The Ramones drew the template for the scene and the other two added raw fury to it. Even though the Ramones seemed to care less about the politics of the era you can't deny the war cry of “Hey Ho, Let's Go'



The Dead Kennedys “Holiday In Cambodia”



The Dead Kennedys were the bastard American sons of the Clash and Pistols. With just a touch of surf styles they brought hard core politics and hard core punk to the west coast.



Iggy Pop “I Wanna Be Your Dog”



Iggy is the godfather of punk. A ball of energy with no direction, just raw passion. It was tough choosing between this track and “Search and Destroy”.
