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.

I saw a punk guy at the bus stop today. He had on those really high docs, but I don't think he was racist because they were red. He was also wearing a Leftover Crack sweatshirt, which I complimented him on despite never really listening to or caring about them.

Correct. They're right up there along with inability to capitalize or punctuate, to say nothing of pentagrams, as far as being not punk goes.

punk is being able to walk up to a complete stranger in a black flag shirt and talk to them like you've known them for years.

I like to think of Punk like a dirty old bum. He's comin' up to me, and I'm 'bout to sock him one, cause, you know, he's a dirty old punk, but then I say, "Wait a minute, there's something... I don't know, special about this guy

trooth.

nothing's better than having some old dude at Shop Rite come up to you and have a short conversation about your Descendents shirt.

or various other people recognizing your Degenerics back patch.

nothing is funner than someone coming up to you to talk about your shirt and spending 5 minutes trying to figure out how to leave

seriously no stranger has walked up to me and said stuff like 'oh hey i like the dead kennedys too' without me imagining what they look like falling into a vat of hydrofluoric acid

it'd probably look pretty boring but fuck them up pretty bad in the long run so its the thought that counts

Punk is a fashion style. A way to sell doc martins and hair dye. And piercings. They dress up in their pretty little clothes go get smashed claim its for anarchy and against the government. Some of them are even sober enough to make music that sounds politically motivated.

Theres a few of them where I live, a couple of them are your a-typical punk couple. They both got the look. She's at university studying accounting.

Nuff said.
