Oh this was a whole pile of fun to put together!
It's Noughties Tuesdays here on The Rewind and we took a trip down memory lane to look back at some of the punk rock songs of 2005 that captured our teenage hearts. This was an era of The OC and One Tree Hill. Bleached hair was all the rage, American teenage culture had fully infiltrated these shores and we were falling for the likes of My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy and Good Charlotte.
Now you'll have to forgive me because apparently I was using the term "punk rock" too loosely when putting together this list. In fact there are five extra songs at the end that apparently 'didn't qualify' as punk rock so I couldn't include them. But Godammit they were great tunes so I'm adding them in any way!
Arctic Monkeys - I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Fall Out Boy - Sugar We're Going Down
Weezer - Beverly Hills
All American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret
Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends
My Chemical Romance - Helena
The White Stripes - My Doorbell
Good Charlotte - I Just Wanna Live
Audioslave - Be Yourself
Bonus Rock Songs From 2005
Not punk rock but belters nonetheless...
Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc
The Foo Fighters - Best Of You
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
Razorlight - Somewhere Else
Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To
We've also put these together into a Spotify playlist. Enjoy!
