Metal heads are pissed off hippies

they hate the establismhemt
want to play guitar all day and not go to school
and dress apart from the crowd

so basically, more death metal

No, Punk fans are pissed off hippies. They actually hate the establishment and actively speak out against it. Only violently rather than peacefully. They are the ones who protest politically. Last I checked Cannibal Corpse was singing about ****ing dead hookers.

Jimi Hendrix would be in The Killers.


Marilyn Monroe would be in The Flaming Lips.


Janis Joplin would sing for Evanescence and marry Justin Timberlake.

LOLOLOL

sorry an active punk lolololol oxymoron

my best friends are all punks (i am a metalhead) and those are the laziest most unmotivated ppl in the world

they do nothing to conjure up the revolutionary spirit


sorry mate, i hate to "diss" you, but i've failed to ever see a "punk" do shit towards fixing the establishmen

FYI: I hang around with a group of em, and besides wearing tighter pants than I, they do nothing

I don't think so, they don't talk about politics and stuff in their lyrics as much as punks do, most of the time it's just about being brootal and stuff.

Pete Townsend would be in a punk band.

Considering he was the figurehead for the mods in England, I highly doubt it. Rockers were more punks than mods weren't they?

It would be interesting to see which musicians Bob Dylan would play with.

Thrash, being influenced by hardcore, is often political. So is grindcore.

Someone's never listened to CRASS.

I know punks. Punks organize radical collectives, punks put out zines explaining their political views, punks read anarchist literature, punks ride bikes instead of driving cars.

The Clash toured with The Who, and there's certainly a Townshend influence in their songs (compare "Clash City Rockers" to "I Can't Explain") as well as their live performances.

To Holy Katana: Ok, you have two subgenres against a whole genre, I'm no saying you're wrong but Punk is often much more political than metal.

look, my basic response to this would be something along the lines of...

Trust me, I live in LA, i've spent quite sometime in just about every scene around here, mainly punk because i live in East Los specifically, where punks are the prevaying clique

and would like to simply say, i see punks as ppl who complain and literally do nothing, flunk outta class, drink their ass senseless all day, and smoke really bad weed


why do i see this?

because that is the majority of punks here, well wait, i should say pretty much all of them

before this becomes a flame war

your experiences with the punk sub culture have clearly differed from mine, and i respect that, but that doesn't take away from my broad generalization of them because of what i've seen in their community

Makes sense. You should always judge an entire group of people based on the actions of few.

The fact that it's a broad generalization takes away from it. Punk is a much more diverse and complex sub genre and culture than most people like to think. The punks you know are obviously quite different from the punks I know. A broad generalization never does a diverse population justice.

Every punk that I've met either has been in or is currently enrolled in college, works a steady job, is active in community service or all the above. See? You can't judge an entire group of people because of some.

Eric Clapton: Queens of the Stone Age

Mainly because I think Queens of the Stone Age sounds like a continuation of Cream. And if Josh Homme and Eric Clapton made a music baby, it would be named Awsome.
