Or do punk bands these days sit around and whine about the system whilst doing nothing about it?
#7
Some bands do, alot of them just skateboard though and talk about doing stuff.

I just wish they'd actually do something about it. If someone could tell me of something punk bands other than the 77 breed have done to change anything, do tell.
#9
the '77 bands didn't do **** but sniff glue.

As cliched as it is to suggest, the Plan-It-X bands do alot of good stuff for their communities and I know that personally everyone in my band volunteers at a community library (well it's kind of an anti-library/teen shelter place where kids can hang out and don't have to get ****ed up), and many many many punks do Food Not Bombs (Knugen Faller was founded at a Food Not Bombs meeting). So there's alot of good stuff punks do, alot of times we just focus on the bad stuff.

I don't live in the UK and I don't think they really did anything... oh yeah, they played a benifit for firemen... big ****ing deal. They liked attention and wore bondage pants around little kids and said alot of curse words.

Who cares?

Theytook a stand against that useless Royal famil and made it okay for the prim and proper to go out and complain about it. Anyway I don't want to argue about that...
#14
No one cared about the Royal Family when they were around anyways... it was a time of economic stagnation and whatnot, everyone was more pissed off at the government.

I live in America, we said **** you to the Royal Family a long ass time ago!

So everything today would be the same without the Pistols?

Anyway...

What about us compiling a list of punk protests and groups who are active today and another for the 90s, 80s, and 70s. Ones who would have helped society and not just sung about what's wrong?
