Basically any punk song that's great fun to play on bass.

Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen
Stranglers - Hanging Around
Buzzcocks - Harmony In My Head
Joy Division - Leaders of Men
Clash - Complete Control

Annoyingly no room for the Damned but can't lose the Stranglers so they'll have to miss out.

JC may be exagerating a bit, but i think he's right in the sense that The Damned are quite over-rated.
