I'm looking for some 80's/early 90's punk love and/or dirty songs. Think Billy Idol or The Cure (the two examples I can think of hence why I'm asking, lol). Basically, what would the "baby-making" punk music of the 80's be? Bonus points if they're British singers/groups, but they do not have to be by any means.

Also, following the same criteria, but songs that maybe focus on or at least mention the occult? By occult I mean things like "The Reaper" or like King's "Born Under A Bad Sign".

I didn't think so, but in doing some googling everything just came up as "rock" (including Billy Idol) so I just gave up. I mean, obviously I don't know punk, hence the request!lol

I gotta ask. What are you working on? And I'll poke around and find some examples for you. You know I'm a research nerd. This should be fun. And no, BOC is not punk.

Here's a list of punk bands I found. I can't imagine making a baby to this kind of music. Start with Dropkick Murphy's. They are fun. Maybe check The Clash, The Ramones and The Who. I'm not even sure I'd characterize The Cure as punk. They're more alternative like REM.


OMG--I've been playing The Cure on Youtube. I'd forgotten how great they were. Even though I don't think it's really punk, try this out.

I am making a Constantine playlist. I want to bring some of his punk background into it. :D

I didn't think about Dropkick. I even have that on my computer.

Thanks for that list, that helps. And yeah, clearly I know nothing about punk! I feel embarrassed but also like, it's just never been something anyone I've known is into. *shrugs*

I love Lovesong. It's on a Heroes playlist from back in the day so it always reminds me of that.

I'm not much of a punk fan either. Sex Pistols would probably be too early for what you're doing, but they'd have been an influence on Constantine, I would think. Dropkick Muryphy's might be too late for what you're doing.

I thought maybe you were writing, but I don't know how you'd have time for that. Did you get your chapter done?
