a few years ago it seems punk was all i listened to, but nowadays i've moved onto to other genres. I still listen to a lot of punk-inspired stuff (imo what came after punk was much better), but punk never really lived up to my expectations of what it could be. it became the very thing it originally railed against. punk is really just a scene for idealistic youths...do you really know any 40+ punks? you grow out of that shit..

I still like it, I just don't listen to it as much anymore

Edit: I'm like you TS, I picked up on the stuff that came afterward and developed out of it. But I never considered myself a "punk", I just liked the music, so I really didn't grow out of it, since never thought I was a part of it.

I've never considered myself a "punk", even though I used to listen to a bit of it back in the day.

I still throw on Minor Threat, The Exploited, Discharge etc every now and again for a spin though.

I still listen to punk (although i'm 18 so i'm still a teenager) but i never have and never will consider myself A punk. You don't have to wear leather and have a mohawk to listen to the music, neither do you have to subscribe to any of the political ideals.

I've never really listened to much punk, i enjoyed Green Day when i was younger, and still like their older stuff, but i've never considered myself a punk, nor did i listen to the sex pistols/ramones, etc. just because i thought i should. I do see some people who are in their 20s who are immersed in the punk movement, which is fine but when their attitude is shitty and obnoxious, i can't stand it.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I on the other hand, hated punk without even listening to it. Then when I heard some Sex Pistols, I was like "hey this is pretty good."

People who hate punk just coz its easy to play are retarded.

I actually just got into it. When that new pop-punk wave came about in the mid-late nineties, I hated it (Green Day, Blink-182, etc.) However, I've recently been getting into some of the older punk bands like Bad Religion, Cockney Rejects, Anti-Flag, U.S. Bombs (they're slightly newer), and my personal favorites, Screeching Weasel. I'm not really a "punk", but I do enjoy the hardcore/melodic bands from the early 1980's.

Punk is so easy to play, that's exactly why I got into punk. Who doesn't like Green Day, Blink 182 and Sum 41 (Early albums only, later are more bitch rock!)
#18
I liked some of the music, so suffice to say I grew out of it, but the positive sides of the ethic (DIY mainly) I still have.

I listen to folk punk all the time, and I enjoy the ideals.
You don't have to have spiked-up green hair to be a punk.

Folk Punk? You better have Frank Turners "Campfire PunkRock" EP.

I literally don't know any punk bands outside of Rancid. I like them though.

I grew into it, starting with post punk bands like Joy division and moving onto American hardcore like Minor threat and Black Flag. I think most of us have very different ideas of what exactly punk is anyway. I really hope this thread doesn't turn into 40 pages of people arguing over their perceptions of punk.

I've listened to the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and some newer stuff like Anti-Flag when I was younger, nowadays I still like em but hardly listen to them.

Yeah Ive always loved punk especially the high speed stuff like Dead Kennedys, minor threat and the casualties, I also love the stuff which sits on the border of garage rock and punk like the stooges and the New York Dolls

I'm likely older than most forum members and I recall well when Punk "hit". I was never impressed... Of course, I'm primarily from a "roots" music background, primarily acoustic.
I know the movement made a big impression; I was a big Fleetwood Mac fan at the time and recall that Lindsey Buckingham was very taken with punk and a lot of the material he put on Tusk was punk-influenced. (I didn't like it...)
The thing that turned me off was the lack of musicianship. I recall someone stating that the ideal was to be that someone walking down the street just happened to pick up a guitar and started playing it with no training at all.
That didn't have any appeal to me....

this.

I still like a bit of punk. I've never been hugely into it, but I've always really liked it.
#34
I like Punk Rock and always will.
But then, these bands are what I'd consider punk/pop-punk; NOFX, Strike Anywhere, Bad Religion, Smoke or Fire, Against Me, Hot Water Music, None More Black, etc

Never was a huge fan of punk

I do seem to over-glorify genres when I first listen to them though, then they slowly fall into the rest of the long list of genres that become "everyday music" material.

Was never really into it. I do like pop-punk bands like Green Day and Sum 41 though.
