So I got bored and decided to make a compilation of songs by my favourite folk and folk-punk artists. I tried to only include songs by bands whose usual sound this is, but I ended up breaking that rule for Chewing on Tinfoil and RVIVR because I love those songs too much. And also for We Versus The Shark because cheesey joke. I did stick to a ‘one song per artist’ rule though, or this would have just ended up as The Mountain Jackson Goats, Ohio.


  1. We Versus The Shark - Suddenly It’s A Folk Song (Future Of The Left).
  2. Andrew Jackon Jihad - Brave As A Noun
  3. Defiance, Ohio - Enough*
  4. Mischief Brew - Roll Me Through The Gates Of Hell
  5. This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb - Body Count
  6. Sledding With Tigers - Going To Georgia (The Mountain Goats)
  7. Chewing On Tinfoil - Along The Way (MysterEP version)
  8. Leah Lou - Drunk, Stupid and Used
  9. Heathers - Reading In The Dark
  10. Paul Baribeau - If I Knew
  11. Jeffrey Lewis - The Chelsea Hotel Oral Sex Song
  12. Laura Stevenson and the Cans - A Shine To It
  13. Devendra Banheart - A Sight To Behold
  14. RVIVR - Real Mean (acoustic)
  15. Apologies, I Have None - Bent Strings
  16. Leonard Cohen - Partisan
  17. The Mountain Goats - Best Ever Death Metal Band
  18. Against Me! - Pints Of Guinness Make You Strong
  19. Gogol Bordello - Wonderlust King
  20. O’Death - Lowtide
  21. Crywank - Thomas Saunders Gang Chant
  22. Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Revolver.

*I’m pretty sure my habit of separating artists from songs/albums with a - and not a comma in lists like this is entirely because of D,O
