Music for Writing: A Folk Punk Playlist

I have my friend Emma to thank for my love of folk punk, partly from stalking her Grooveshark playlists, partly from when I visited her in March and she played some Johnny Hobo & the Freight Trains. It fell to the back of my mind for a while, until I started using Spotify, and the first playlist I searched for was something folk punk inspired. The results were okay, and I do have two saved to follow and listen to occasionally, but Grooveshark seems to be the better place for finding a variety.

Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of folk punk while I work on my novel–when I’m not listening to riot grrrl bands, anyway–and when I mentioned it in an “It’s Friday” post, Shawna asked me to share. So here’s a playlist I whipped up based on what I’ve been listening to while working.

Go to Grooveshark to listen

Do you have any listening recommendations for while I work? What do you listen to while you work?

  1. Such a great playlist!! I’m really into Wingnut dishwasher’s union but haven’t listened to much Johnny Hobo so i’m stoked on this. I’m going to listen while doing some coding work.

    I definitely go through genre phases, right now I find myself listening to a lot of pop punk while i’m working. Lots of stuff I used to listen to in high school & some new ones.

  3. I loved it! I’ve actually heard Defiance, Ohio. I’ll have to ask my husband if we’ve seen them in concert. I’m bad about keeping up with the bands. This sounds like a lot of the music he listens to and CDs/vinyl he brings home from meeting bands when he’s on tour. He’s asleep or I would ask him about it 🙂 I’d never heard of folk punk as a genre but I definitely like it and its great to get some creative work done to. You rock!
