    my favorite male punk bands with their 3 best (punk)songs:

    Queers - Janelle janelle, Overdue, Punk rock donfidential
    Mr T Experience - I fell for you, Sackloth and ashes, I'd do anything for you
    Green Day - Poprocks and coke, She, Longview
    Undertones - Here comes the summer, Jimmy jimmy, Teenage kicks
    The Jam - A bomb in wardour street, Down in the tube station at midnight, Going underground
    Ramones - Judy is a punk, I don't wanna go down to the basement, Havana affair
    Sex Pistols - Holidays in the sun, Anarchy in the UK, God save the queen
  25. Azura

    Azura Felis silvestris grampia, factum ex trabibus ferro

    Scotland East
    I could list so many but instead I'll just draw your attention to two that may have passed you by unless you were around at the time (UK)
    First, the B-side of Eddie And The Hotrods second single, Horseplay, with Lew Lewis still in the band on harmonica. They weren't like by a lot of punks but they were more punk in attitude than The Clash whom I worshipped at the time but who turned out to just be Rockers.... The Pistols were the real deal, The Clash weren't... (dodges incoming...)
