Just so everyone knows what punk is:

'Who Can It Be Now?' Men At Work
'What You Need' INXS
'So Alive' Love & Rockets
'Don't Dream It's Over' Crowded House
'You Might Think' The Cars
'Chains Of Love' Erasure
'Mickey' Toni Basil
'My Sharona' The Knack
'I Want A New Drug' Huey Lewis & The News
'Talking In Your Sleep' The Romantics
'One Thing Leads To Another' The Fixx
'Eyes Without A Face' Billy Idol
'Here Comes The Rain Again' Eurythmics
'Our House' Madness
'Human' The Human League
'She's A Beauty' The Tubes
'Hold Me Now' Thompson Twins
'867-5309/Jenny' Tommy Tutone
'I Ran' Flock of Seagulls
'Jeopardy' Greg Kihn Band
'Stray Cat Strut' Stray Cats
'Whip It' Devo
'Karma Chameleon' Culture Club
'Cruel To Be Kind' Nick Lowe
'Harden My Heart' Quarterflash
'Wild Wild West' Escape Club

So basically, if you were alive in the early/mid 80's and had access to a radio, congratulations! You are punk as fuck!!!

I think this must've been compiled by the same people that put together the classic "Chipmunk Punk" record, which included seminal punk rock bands like the Cars, Queen, Tom Petty, and the Knack. The Chipmunks didn't cover Huey Lewis, but they did do Billy Joel, who's gotta be at least as punk as Huey...



(This was one of the first records I owned, and I consider it a portent of my propensities... And the Chipmunks singing "My Sharona", about getting handjobs from underage girls, is actually kinda punk...)

My favorite moment was where they say, "...and you also get Huey Lewis and the News!" (0:54) and a video of everyone's dad pops up. At least everyone else up to that point had sorta goofy hair, which is very, very punk.

Dude, I loved this album. I was wondering if I might find a copy now, just for kicks. And "My Sharona" was my favorite song on it... though I had NO IDEA what it was about...

Reminds me of their other song, "It's Hip to Be Square Punk"

Ignoring stupid genre arguments, these are a few songs I consider "punk" (some NSFW lyrics, but you should expect that):

On the "Punk" CD? Obviously, that would not fit...

Indeed... I was psyched when that was reissued.
