Punk songs for a folk lover?
June 6, 2012 11:48 AM Subscribe
I normally listen to bluegrass/folk/classical, but I recently found out I really love Bad Religion's "Sorrow". What other punk tracks might I enjoy?

I don't think I care particularly about the "soft"/acoustic sound of much of the music I listen to, so I'd love to branch out to include some harder stuff that shares the same basic musical underpinnings. As far as I can tell, what I'm looking for are songs that have, in descending order of importance:
-- Conspicuous sung harmonies
-- Strong moving bass line
-- Strong melody
-- Relatively traditional overall structure
-- Interesting, thoughtful lyrics
What other songs in the punk/post-punk line should I be checking out?
