Okay, so for English we're writing a paper on anything we want and I chose Politics in Punk Rock. The basic structure of my paper is I'm going to list some basic punk ideologies and use some songs as examples of each one.
So here are my ideologies:
-Anarchism
-Discontent with the government
-Non-conformity
-Anti-militarism
-Anti-capitalism
-Media=controlling, commercialism
-Environmentalism
-Vegetarianism, veganism, animal rights
-Direct Action (protests, boycotts, etc.)
-DIY

So if anyone can come up with examples of songs that talk about any of those, that would be groovy. Thanks.

Media - Media Blitz, Germs
Anarchism - Sucks, Crass
Anti-militarism - Die for Me, T.S.O.L.
Discontent with the government - Democracy, Adolescents
Anti-conformity - Comform to the Norm, The Clones

Songs about discontent with the government are impossible not to find. Sort of the same thing with non-conformity, and other stuff on that list.

I just gave one song for each one, but it would be pretty easy to make a long list of songs about those things.

anarchism: anarky in the uk- sex pistols



leave now. that post just proves you know zip about punk.
#18
nemo knows what hes talking about though. hes heard more than just the sex pistols thats why i found his post credible. This kid is in his sex pistols/the clash are god stage.
#21
dead kennedys. just go through every single song and you'll find almost every topic you listed. also subhumans...yeah tons of other stuff

you WILL find stuff about those topics in punk like sex pistols ramones clash...just PLEASE look a little deeper than anarchy in the uk. just because it has anarchy in the title doesn't mean that its the best song about anarchist ideas.

ok well happy writing. hope it turns out good!

WTF. This argument is ridiculous. I thought part of the punk-mentality was non-conformity, but you apparantely which punk you listen to defines who you are.

I don't know what an "elitist" is, nor do I know anything about the kid other than what I've read in this post. You obviously know more about him than I do, so I can't comment on that. What is an elitist? Surely not a way of classifying punk fans?

an elitist is someone who listens to a music, acts like they no more than they actually do. never admits to being wrong. is usually an asshole at shows. thinks highly of themselves and everyone else is less than they are.


like with his comment i bet you listen to simple plan and good charlotte. that was stupid and un needed.
