Ok personally, why do people think you have to dress a certain way and have a hawk to be "punk"? Cause personally i just wear and do whatever i feel like, when did punk have rules? I dont know if this is just my school or if anyone else has this bull**** going on...

Its (probably) about fitting the image that the stereotype put forward. I would say that most people who look like this are putting on a show and don't feel very strongly about that music. In other words : being a fake and lying to themselves and everyone else.

It's been happening for years all over the place. People think that you can't be "punk" if you don't have tattoos, a mohawk, wear a Misfits t-shirt, or look like you stuck your face in a tackle box. I agree, punk is supposed to be about freedom and individuality. So the ones that are trying to set rules and trends are nothing more than posers.

To be honest, there are really no "punks" in my school, just crusties, who are really no fun, and are, in fact, all druggies. There are ska kids, they're more fun to hang out with, and some of the metalheads are cool. I personally listen to about 70% punk music, but almost no one guesses it by looking at me unless I'm wearing a punk band shirt. So yeah, around here at shows too, no one really judges you by what you wear, and everyone really just has a good time.

i will wear regular jeans and a band t... say leftover crack. ill get a guy in a mohawk ask me "whats ur shirt mean?" meanwhile the guy that dresses in a suit (or whatever) says "love the band"

ive come to learn (in most cases) that if someone is dressed all goofy with the mohawk, studs and, blah blah that they probably listen to fall out boy or the used.
