Do you consider yourself as "punk"?

Do you?

Creepy, Boxcar just started playing on my spotify while I started reading this post

For topic; I listen to punk music mostly, but I don't really go around trying or anything.

I love punk, my music's heavily influenced by it, but I don't go out of my way to "be punk." I just wanna be me. I'm not a big fan of "That's not punk!" discussions because...well, why does it matter? I acknowledge my influences, but when I record my own music, I don't want it to be called punk.

I guess, yeah I am, but I'm not an elitist going around saying 'that's not Punk!', Punk is what ever you want it to be. To me punk is doing it your way, being responsible for your own morality, your own conscience, your own life. So yeah, I am, Anarcho-street-Punk and proud

I don't look like a punk. I dress more like a Mod, really, but I think the Sex Pistols, and especially the Clash, have informed my outlook more than any other musical artists, other than maybe Bob Dylan. So yeah, I'm punk.

George Orwell, he was punk. Christopher Hitchens was punk. Noam Chomsky is punk.

I consider myself punk in the sense that

A) I am a functioning alcoholic
B) I don't know anything about politics but I hold unpopular political opinions to the dismay of my parents
C) As a man who is 6'0" and 270 pounds I am large enough to intimidate anyone who makes me mad for whatever reason, no matter how trivial and unimportant.
D) My music collection is really loud and a large majority of it comes from Sweden, Germany, Japan, Brazil, USA, and the U.K. It is almost all guitar, bass, drums, and singer-based bands. Sometimes there are brass instruments, but only rarely.
E) I have a punk band tattoo on my left arm. It's cool though, you can't see it through a t-shirt sleeve so I'm cool to get minimum wage jobs. (It's the Dead Kennedys logo.)
F) I'm unemployed and irrepsonsible.

Funny how a movement that would mostly loathe the whole "is it punk/that'snotverypunk" attitude has largely become just that.

But no, I'm not punk. I'm swag.

You guys aren't punk and I'm telling EVERYONE.

If you have to rattle off criteria, you're missing the fucking point. It's who you are and what you feel.It's the fire won't be drowned out. It's the primal scream that talks back to you in your head. It's the rage. The terror and the fury of cornered animals crying out at the world, demanding to be free.

Sometimes it's also about girls and stuff.

Haha, I'm not sure a feeling is really something that counts as a criteria, but that's a decent shot if you're down with being pedantic.

More precisely, if you have to rattle off [things you do], you're missing the point.

I love punk because everyone's all like "it's all about freedom **** definitions" but there are clearly things that are punk and things that are not punk.

It's a subculture, not a philosophy. Get over it kids.
