Win Nick’s Esteem [Extended]


Thank Fletch it’s Friday.

It’s that time of the week you’ve all been waiting for. I can feel your excitement through my keyboard.

And so without further ado, let’s get this voucher-free music party started.

This week, on the 45th anniversary of the release of the debut album by The Clash, I want to know: what’s your favourite punk anthem?

Here’s mine.

Please include video links if possible.

Lines MUST close on Saturday at Midday.

Last week, I asked for your favourite song with flowers in the title or lyrics. You answered in your tens.

Gorugeen won my esteem with this entry:

Led Zeppelin – Misty Mountain Hop

Gorugeen writes:

“Always makes me think of our holidays in France: Sitting at the top of the meadow, watching all the happy people arrive and as the sun dips behind the trees the music starts. My happy place.”

Nick says: Congratulations Gorugeen. Thanks to everyone who entered.

      Seems a collage of sampled songs
      My favourite punk song ever was rise by PIL followed by songs by the clash and of course anything by the sex pistols
      It took me years to appreciate punk
      And punk had to happen when rock became elevator music
      Could never get into trash metal

        slf left us an array of top tunes.
        love alternative ulster – what about suspect device –
        inflamable material how’s that for a record.

  1. CapernosityandFunction

    Public Image Limited – Public Image

    Too late for consideration.

    Not only one of the greatest punk songs of all time, this is one of the greatest songs of all time. The guitar line throughout this song is just incredible.

  2. CapernosityandFunction

    Manic Street Preachers – Motown Junk

    Another too late for consideration.

    Too young for the original punk period the boys from Blackwood were as close as I got, in the flesh. The early Manics oozed punk’s attitude and spirit. In the best tradition this song seeks to trash cultural totems that went before.

    We always associate Punk with the class of ’77 – when young folk revolted against the hypnosis gatefold album sleeves and triple live albums from such crimes against music as ELP / Yes and pure sh1te like Kiss, Genesis or Peter Frampton (FFS) etc…..But there were many precursors to the CBGBs crew and The Clash. I’d date punk to the class of ’69 and either The Stooges or the MC5 as the Velvet Underground were just plain avant garde
    The Stooges
    “I wanna be your dog”

    Kick out the Jams

    1. Mad

      It’s Hipgnosis Stephen

      Anyway I do quite agree with your opinion,
      Punk for me started with the MC5, Iggy and the Stooges and then migrated into the New York Dolls
