Top 25 Punk Rock Songs Of All Time

Updated on August 23, 2017

Vote For Your Favorite Punk Rock Song

Here's your chance to vote for your favorite punk rock song. Just go to the section of this page that says Vote For Your Favorite Punk Song and you can vote for whatever punk song is listed. If there's one not listed, simply add it.

Or just find a good song to listen to - each link will show a great punk rock video. If you want to add the list as a widget to your blog or as an RSS feed, there's that option at the bottom of the list. Most of the popular punk anthems will eventually be found near the top of the list, but don't discount the music in the middle or at the bottom. New stuff is added all the time, so you might want to save this as a favorite webpage.

Also, leave your opinion about the list in general in the comments section at the bottom of the page. The list itself is for music videos, but if you know of great links to any articles, leave them in the comments as well.

Some Lists Of Favorite Punk Bands

First, none of these are my videos so don't slam me for which band is listed higher than another. I have a lot of the same thoughts about the band selection and ranking. These are just a cross-current of what several different people think are great bands. Great music though.

1. The Top 25 British Punk Bands of the 70s

2. Top 25 punk bands in history

3. My Top 30 Punk Bands

4. My top 50 Punk Bands

5. The Best Of Punk

      Great job! You covered most of my favorite punk bands, though I noticed there was an omission of all Irish punk bands. I would've at least liked to see Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, The Dubliners, The Pogues, The Tossers, Blaggards...they are all good punk bands in their own right!

      Very good list. I have never seen the Suicidal Tendencies video before with a hot Mary Wournos playing the Mom. I think the Dad may have been David Lynch acolyte Jack Nance. Anyhoo, great collection of videos. Punk Lives!

      I knew most of your top 10. I'm not way into punk, but like some songs here and there. Fun to learn more about it. Gotta say that even if people don't care for Green Day, they (among other bands) helped start the punk resurgence in the '90s. Great lens!

      Why would "Green Day" be on a top punk songs list at all? Can't say I agree with some of the coices, but thanks for sharing. I liked listening to songs I haven't heard in a while.
