Suicidal Thoughts - Notorious B.I.G
This song explains Dally's death because he wanted to die because he missed Johnny and wanted to be with him. He knew that pulling out a gun in front of the police would get him killed, and he did it to be with Johnny. Additionally, Dally's death affected Ponyboy in a negative way because his grades started to drop and he wasn't eating as much as he normally did. This shows that when you lose someone close, you change.

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
This song fits the final rumble between the greasers and socs because it explains how both of the groups act whenever they fight. They do not use any weapons in the rumbles which makes this song an even better fit. The greasers were also very determined to beat the socs in the fight, and really wanted to give it to them for all they've done to the greasers.
