It would have been hilarious-er if you had thrown one Clash song in there.
And picked "Tainted Love."

I'm going to *try* and keep it one song per artist. These are all pretty obvious, but they are so for a reason. Here we go (in no particular order):

1. Judy is a Punk - Ramones
2. Complete Control - The Clash
3. Blank Generation - Richard Hell and the Voidoids
4. Teenage Kicks - The Undertones
5. Marquee Moon - Television
6. Let's Submerge - X Ray Spex
7. Johnny Hit and Run Pauline - X
8. California Uber Alles - Dead Kennedys
9. Sob Story - Minor Threat
10. Anarchy in the UK - Sex Pistols
11. New Rose - The Damned
12. What Do I Get? - Buzzcocks
13. Mother - Babes in Toyland
14. Gary Gilmore's Eyes - Adverts
15. Gordon is a Moron - Jilted John
16. Add it Up - Violent Femmes
17. Nervous Breakdown - Black Flag
18. X Offender - Blondie
19. I Wanna be your Dog - Stooges
20. Celebrated Summer - Husker Du
JB track 15 is just called "Jilted John". :kiss:
Well, who's the moron now?
Well, moran, anyway. :shifty:
Hee!

All solid lists. Even Flex's, because picking all Exploited songs is PUNK RAWK.
Got a Rake? Sure!

Don't believe included Troops of Tomorrow. This is 100% pure, uncut Wattie.

EDIT: Oh, I misread this. Yeah, I was going with 100% pure, uncut Wattie. :cool:

Given the harrowingly tragic history of that band not sure i can see much good reason for keeping the name going.

Hopefully get time to do my list today. Decided to go with the feel of the track and partially timeline rather than favourite track by a punk band e.g. so although WMIHP is my favourite Clash song I will be voting for CC. Likewise I don’t think P&T should be included just because it was by a punk band during the punk era.
Did I see pre 1976 excluded?
