This list of the top folk punk bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Folk punk groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs.

These are truly the greatest folk punk bands of all time, since the most famous folk punk artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best folk punk music.

You can click on the folk punk band names to see more information about that particular notable folk punk group. If they're near the top of the best folk punk artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top folk punk bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the folk punk band names themselves.

A list made up of new indie rock folk punk bands like The Avett Brothers and Gogol Bordello. Make sure to rock the vote by upvoting the best artists on this list. The list includes stuff like The Pogues and Mumford & Sons, giving you a breadth of choices.

All important, significant and iconic names in folk punk music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new folk punk bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of folk punk, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into folk punk music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good folk punk bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent folk punk bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best folk punk bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest folk punk musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular folk punk bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
