Question Real Punk?

What is real punk? I tend to think of punk as a way of life rather than a music genera but what is true punk, I often hear that true punk bands are bands like the clash, the ramones and others of that era. What do you guys think?

Punk is all in the attitude, you can rock some KISS or Metallica and be punk.

ugh sew 2008.

if i may be ironically serious for a moment, i'm partial toward legs mcneil's assessment: The name "Punk" was decided upon because "it seemed to sum up...everything...obnoxious, smart but not pretentious, absurd, ironic, and things that appealed to the darker side". (i would downplay the 'darker side' part as being mainly of historical relevance, and also add that indignance is a factor.) so like music w/ a 'smartalecky' vibe.

i've been pretending that it's still the year 2008 for 5 years now. it makes it easier to not come to terms with the fact that i'm in exactly the same place i was at that time.

I was a huge Kiss fan in 5th grade. I had this old Kiss lunchbox that used to be my dad's. I wodner where it's at, it's still pretty sick. I had Kiss dolls of Peter Criss and Gene Simmons I got froma claw machine at grocery store next to my house, I was baller at those. My cat used the Gene Simmons doll when it was feeling lonely/horny, so after a while it was pretty gross. Kinda wish I let it use the Peter Criss doll instead.

No shit. I have no words for the stupidity and hypocracy in some teenage turd trying to potray some sort of culture-elitism around the term "punk", and bashing others for not adhering to the strict rules they've layed out that someone must follow in order to be considered part of the club.

I guess those are words. Nevermind.

Now you're bashing teenagers who want the world to be punk. That's so unpunk.
