attitude, we are 138, or where eagles dare by the misfits.
or maybe a sum 41 song with a good solo in it, maybe the bitter end(even though it is a metal song and sum 41's not really that punk.)

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

Or it would be really cool if you threw in a Sonics cover or some other 60's garage rock band, maybe even a 50's rock and roll song.

I know it's already been asked, but how many guitars? If you have two, do some Screeching Weasel. Maybe "My Brain Hurts" or "Hey Suburbia"

if its at school, play what are you going to do? by the Unseen, it has a nice speech to the teachers at the end. If its a show, try to mix 2 songs together, a good one then a shitty one that everyone knows. Example http://youtube.com/watch?v=R0QvhczFWBk

watch the whole video and you'll see
