70s Punk Playlist refined

In one of my previous posts I mentioned that I had created a 70s Punk Playlist. I have been refining it lately. Right now it is what I am listening to.

I have added complete albums instead of invidual songs. The goal is that I will listen to the complete album and I might find a new favorite. Also, I sort the list by track number so that the albums play in order but not all at once.

At this point there are 412 songs in the list.

I have tried to make the list of albums/songs that were released before 1980. However, some of the albums in the list are anthologies and some of the songs are from the 80s and 90s. I guess it goes to show that nothing is perfect.

Here is the list.

  1. Iggy Pop/The Stooges - A Million in Prizes: The Iggy Pop Story

  2. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Armed Forces

  3. The B-52's - The B-52s

  4. Richard Hell & the Voidoids - Blank Generation

  5. The Clash - The Clash

  6. Gang of Four - Entertainment

  7. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Get Happy

  8. The Clash - Give'em enough Rope

  9. Patti Smith - Horses

  10. The Clash - London Calling

  11. The Ramones - Loud Fast

  12. Television - Marquee Moon

  13. Graham Parker - Squeezing Out Sparks

  14. Elvis Costello - My Aim is True

  15. The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks

  16. New York Dolls - New York Dolls

  17. The Police - Outlandos d'Amour

  18. The Police - Regatta de Blanc

  19. Lou Reed - Rock'n Roll Animal

  20. Talking Heads - Sand in the Vaseline (this is an anthology)

  21. The Clash - Sandinista (Might have been release in 1980 but it is the masterpiece so it went on the list)

  22. Ian Dury & the Blockheads - New Boots & Panties

  23. The Stranglers - The Stranglers' Greatest Hits

  24. Elvis Costello - This Years Model

  25. Wreckless Eric - Wreckless Eric

I should probably add some of the Ska Punk Bands that came out about the same time such as the Specials, the English Beat, and Madness. Unfortunately, I do have any of this in my iTunes collection. I should probably add some. However, my iPod is full and I have to remove music in order to add new stuff.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.
