punk rock is a style of music
punk is a word created by the media to describe artists and followers of the punk rock movement. only after that did people start labeling themselves as "punks". As in many other genres punk rock bands never called themselves punks and resisted using the word to describe themselves and each other.
and yes, punk rock is dead. some say it died with kurt cobain, others say it died with sid vicious. either way it is dead.
punk rock is dead and that's the truth.
