California Songs
LIsted by Artist Name
These are punk rock and alternative rock songs that mention California, taken from the main list of songs about California. For this list, alternative rock includes grunge, pop punk, ska punk, surf punk, cowpunk, hardcore, doom rock, some of the harder hyperpop, maybe some garage rock, etc. but not most heavy metal or indie rock. But, you ask, isn't indie rock also alternative rock? It can be, but here I'm excluding the lighter indie rock, the kind with acoustic instruments or a pop or folk or country influence and only including the heavier and harder rock songs. I didn't want this to be a rock list because that list would be much too long to be interesting. I'm not including heavy metal because it's a rock genre of its own, although I don't know enough California metal songs to make a separate list.
