Name this 200 cigarettes song

Ok, this song is not on the soundtrack. You can hear it in the background while Ricci and her friend are standing outside a punk club arguing about whether or not to leave with the two punk boys. It comes before GVB's 'Boogie Wonderland', is mid to fast tempo with a wonderful yelled chorus. It doesn't really have a GVB vibe though.

I know that's not much to go with. Thanks.

I've not seen the film since it was released on video in the UK, which was probably about seven years ago, can't remember much about it, beyond the line "these matches are really disappointing me", and have no idea how accurate that list is – it's certainly not complete, since this review in the NY Times claims it has "49 party songs on its soundtrack".

Did you try googling the chorus' lyrics yet? ("chorus lyrics"+"lyrics")

Also: Yahoo Movies' page appears to have a complete list of music credits. Might ring a bell.
