Gob - Soda [1:36]

Gob - B Flat [1:25]

The Clash - I'm So Bored With The USA [2:22]

The Clash - I Fought The Law [2:40]....10 seconds over, but it's too awesome to pass up

Anti-Flag - Right To Choose [1:56]

Anti-Flag - We've Got His Gun [2:14]

System Of A Down - Fuck The System [2:15]

Weezer - Buddy Holly [2:39] ...yeah, it's 9 seconds over, but it's kick ass song...

Now you go.

You should lower it down to 2 minutes... hell..even 1. :P

The easiest one for me is All I Want from the Offspring. Is under 2 minutes, and i've loved it since the first time i heard it about 7 years ago. But there are probably a big bunch of songs (some of which i probably like more) but i don't know the exact time of those. I'll edit this post when i get home.

The Pillows have some great short songs...

'White Ash', for instance, is 1:19. I'd love it if there were a 3 or 4 minute version of this.

why don't you love it with 1'19 then? If it's good, it's good, just shorter.

But I want MORE goodness! :P

Anything by the Locust. There songs are thirty seconds to one minute. Same with Charles Bronson.

Heck, lets just do any grindcore songs.

S.O.D. (Storm Troopers of Death) had quite a few short songs. The songs very short in fact, less than 10 seconds. There is the Ballad of Jimi Hendrix which starts with the begining chords of "Purple Haze" followed by it's only lyric "you're dead", and the song ends.

Everything off of T.S.O.L.'s "Weathered Statues" album is fairly short, the album itself clocks in at around 13-17 minutes if I'm not mistaken.

Some other notables:

The Descendents - I want to be a bear (:44)

Agnostic Front - Society Sucker (1:12)

Crucifucks - You Give me the Creeps (1:03)

Dead Kennedys - Short Songs (:28) (Tell me this song isn't perfect for this thread)

Feederz - Day by Day (:31)

G.G. Allin - Suck My Ass It Smells (:58)

Red Kross - Hate my school (:56)

State - State (1:03)

Screamers - Government Love Affair/Don't Be the Whore (1:17)

Violent Apathy - Scatched (1:17)

I could probably sit here all day typing out my favorite short songs. When you have an expansive collection of assorted punk, it comes with the territory.

edit - bit of a grammar clean up
