Dally is a really angry guy, right.  So pick angry songs that you know.  Preferably, they should be angry at authority.  They should be angry at parents or the police.  I can't think of any modern songs like that since I don't listen to all that much music that is popular today.  Old songs would include "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister or "F*** tha Police" by NWA.

"Born To Be Wild" by Sean Kingston springs immediately to mind, as does "The Leader of the Pack" by Del Shannon. I would also rate "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry.

Is it supposed to be from the time period? How about "Like a Rolling Stone" from Bob Dylan. Dally seems restless to me. I also think that several of Johnny Cash's songs, especially "Hurt" would be excellent choices. The "Jet Song" from West Side Story is also a good choice, because it is about gang life as well.
