10. Stiff Little Fingers, “Johnny Was”
Stiff Little Fingers Inflammable Material

Northern Ireland’s Stiff Little Fingers featured an eight-minute version of Marley’s “Johnny Was A Good Man” on their 1979 debut album Inflammable Material, a landmark LP in the punk world. Far from a faithful rendition, their version flips the song’s setting from Kingston to the band’s Civil War-torn hometown of Belfast.
