"Johnny Was" is a cover of the 1976 Bob Marley song from their 1979 debut album "Inflammable Material" by the Irish punk band Stiff Little Fingers.

Most of the album's tracks are about the "Troubles" and the grim reality of life in Northern Ireland with the songs containing themes of teenage boredom, sectarian violence, police oppression, etc., urging people to "grab it and change it, it's yours" in what became their signature song "Alternative Ulster".
