We all know that Valentine’s Day isn’t a real holiday. It’s nothing more than a dastardly ploy concocted by advertising conglomerates to separate you from your hard earned money, all cleverly wrapped in pink and red heart shaped boxes of chocolate. However, there’s no reason we can’t use their fabricated, financial booby trap as a good excuse to acknowledge and show appreciation for those we love. Doing that doesn’t cost a dime! Now, the hard part. Outside of Emo, the Punk genre isn’t known to produce a ton of great odes to love. So how will you ever be able to convey your feelings using your preferred music format without racking your brain, trying to remember “that artist, that released that one random love song that one time, on that album about 10 years ago”? Don’t fret! We’ve compiled the most comprehensive list of punk rock love songs for you to woo the love of your life with. Because we’re a bunch of cynical, sarcastic assholes without a romantic bone in our bodies, we’ve decided to exclude the more traditional love songs, which means no Emo bands allowed (I’m certain that over half our readers just cheered, silently in their heads). We’ve included songs from almost every other genre for every type of relationship though. Who knows, perhaps you’ll use one of the songs on our list and end up finding the perfect someone. It’s highly doubtful, but possible. You’ll never know unless you check out our Ultimate Punk Rock Valentine’s Day Playlist, in no particular order below!
