Defeatist Punk Music - Suggestions?

Recently, I've started to really enjoy punk rock music with defeatist, yet oddly positive feeling lyrics/attitudes, like this song from The Thermals.

Another example is this Mission of Burma track. -That's when I reach for my revolver-

I don't have much of a punk/indie rock background, music listener-wise, so any recommendations would be much appreciated. I'd like to add some good stuff to my Spotify playlist.

    Social Distortion and Suicidal Tendencies were the first things that came to my mind.

    Then for a more recent flavour... the Menzingers.

    Apologies for the double post but I just thought of another one from (old) AFI

    Try Samiam, Descendents, old Alkaline Trio, Hot Water Music, Fucked Up, Social Distortion, Against Me!, Jawbreaker.

    This kinda music is pretty near and dear to my heart, I'll just throw out a couple songs I like:

    Tales of Terror - Evil

    Magazine - A Song From Under The Floorboards

    Dead Moon - Not The Only One
