Me First And The Gimme Gimmes take this Lionel Richie classic and mix in some snugs and snails and puppy-dog tails to create this version. It’s off their fourth album Take a Break.
This punk-rock converto-matic will take any pop song, put it through the grinder and spit out a punky version of it. They’re made up of members from bands such as NOFX, and Foo Fighters. They’ve released 7 albums and 3 EPs. Most of their songs are less than 3 minutes, and perfect for starting up a mosh-pit at a kids party.

The Distillers, an LA punk band, belt out a Hole-like tune to an appreciative crowd. This is off their second album, Sing Sing Death House.
This band split up in 2003, but have released 3 albums and 1EP before doing so. With the occasional great song, I felt that the band’s music could never match the potential of Brody Dale‘s brilliant voice. She’s since gone on to form Spinnerette (a little less punk, and more alt/pop rock), but I think they’re still missing the mark.
A boring montage of the band playing their song in a studio. But hey, it’s black and white, and so arty.
Against Me! (formerly Against Me?, and before that Against Me.) lay down a nice groove in this duet with Tegan Rain Quin. The male / female echo give it a nice emotional feel.
This alt-rock band (although listed as punk rock on Wikipedia) from Florida have released 5 albums and 3 EPs so far with their last being June of 2010. They’re probably playing to packed seniors homes all along the coast.
