My neighbour Nick who's one of my best friends, well his dad's a complete DICK. I've never shown any direspect towards him or anything and he treats me like **** just because I listen to PUNK. He told me that punk is not real rock and that I should go and listen to Pinkfloyd and Queen. I just ignored him because I didn't wanna get in a fight with him or anything. Than a few months later he told me my band was never gonna make any money because we play ****ty punk music and that if I wanna be succesful I have to play good music. I struggled to keep myself from punching his ****ing teeth out and I camly said I don't care about the money. Then about a week ago me and nick were listening to The Clash in his room and his dad come's in and says turn that crap off and slams the door. He never let's Nick come to my shows and stuff even though Nick loves punk rock. Anyone else get this kinda **** for being into punk.

one time a guy looked at me funny in the street so i stabbed him. I think this thread is meant for the pit though, pretty sure this forum is for posting about punk music, not attitude or complaining.

That really sucks, his dad's a dick. The Clash thing is surprising though, because usually classic rock fans go nuts over them for some reason. Also, tell him that Television are 10x more talented than Pink Floyd anyway. Anyway, my friends make fun of me for liking punk sometimes, but just in a joking spirit. Most people I know support what music I like and like to play.

It relates to punk, it's most likely allowed to go here, Jordan's choice.

Most people treat it like a crime to insult the Ramones or the Clash, tbh.

I have never received any hate for being into punk except for from this chubby kid who listens to Fergie and the Spice girls.

Voice of Reason:

1) You should listen to Queen
2) If by 'successful' he means wealthy, then you will never be successful in a punk band

HOWEVER

1) Epic phail for keeping him from seeing a friend's band, regardless of genre
2) He should listen to the Clash

Let me be the first in this thread to say that, I don't like the Clash.

If you want to start a fight with him and then call the cops play "I hate Led Zeppelin" by Screeching Weasel. Pisses everyone off who thinks that "classic rock" or whatever you want to call it is the best music ever.

The only people who have ever given me **** for listening to punk is my dad, and a few "Oi! Boyz" who were mad because I had better racial jokes than them.

This one time , i got sued over something my band had in the sleeve of an album of ours. It was considered obscene by people who hated punk , so they put me on trial over obscenity charges and almost bankrupt me and my label. O sorry , that wasn't me nevermind .........

Ya, I once said Classic rock and nobody knew what I meant

The vast majority of people would refer to Pink Floyd and Queen as classic rock.

That was really clever, no really.
But you see, as I said before, not everyone calls classic rock, classic rock. Some people still just refer to it as rock, soft rock, or various other names.

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

You're a f*cking doofus, and should listen to Pink Floyd and Queen.

Slap yourself for not doing it already.
