  •  The Undertones (3+ / 0-)

    were great, and I would recommend their first, self-titled album to anyone who liked that song.  Get Over You is another great one off of it.  There really are no weak tracks, though.

    Another great Northern Irish punk band from about the same time that I would recommend is Stiff Little Fingers.  They were a bit harder, kind of the Clash to the Undertones' Ramones, I would argue.  Inflammable Material is a great album.  The two songs to check out from it, IMO, would be Suspect Device and Alternative Ulster.

    Incidentally, SLF is slightly better known here than the Undertones, if only because they were mentioned briefly in the movie High Fidelity.
