The Top 50 Songs Of 2016

  The last couple of years have ended with Just Some Punk Songs posting a chart of the Top 30 songs of the year. This time round there's going to be a top 50 in order to try and reflect the vast number of great releases from 2016 (and even after choosing 50 I've still omitted so much great music so sorry to anyone who missed the cut). As always, there's a limit of one song per artist, the chart has been chosen by me and isn't based on page views. Thanks to everyone who's released great music this year and made updating this blog such a delight. All the songs featured below were new releases in 2016 except number 9 which I think originally first came out in 2014 but featured on a new 2016 album and number 3 which I think first came out in the 80's but was rereleased this year and is so good I sneaked it in.

  Can I also thank Jonny Boots for the awesome artwork at the top of the page.

  I'll post the link to all the songs so you can check them out. The Top 20 featured in a Just Some Punk Songs special show last night and the saved version of that show is here :

  I get a little frustrated at the number of people that wallow in the late 70's and early 80's. Punk was never intended to be a nostalgia trip, it was exciting, relevant and a breath of fresh air. In my opinion it still is. Hopefully this Top 50 will feature plenty of excellent bands for you to get your teeth into but it's only a small fraction of what's happening out there. Go find your own favourites and support a scene that's as healthy as it's been for years.
