a person who wants to be "punk," dresses like a "punk," uses the word "punk" as often as possible, listens to "punk" music, and pretends to give a shit about politics. (see: george w bush
.) listens to mainstream- and pop-punk, and drops names of classic punk (sex pistols
) or obscure (possibly made-up) bands as often as possible, but doesn't actually own any of their music. thinks they make up for it by owning tshirts with their picture on them from hot topic
. loves sid vicious
. (doesn't realize he wasn't in the original lineup and didn't actually play any instruments on the records, because glen matlock
recorded for them even after he left the band.) acts like a dick to anyone at a show who isn't dressed like them. has lots of piercings, preferably multiple lip piercings, a monroe
, or something random like an arm piercing. thinks it's "punk" to do drugs, drink, and smoke, because they're underage and their parents still pay for their room and board, food, electricity, heating, water, and their crappy clothes. loves myspace. or hates myspace, because it's run by the Establishment
. covers themselves in safety pins for absolutely no reason. thinks DIY
means cutting up your hot topic tshirt with the used
on it to show off your cleavage. has had a fauxhawk at least once in their life.
a self-proclaimed punk
is most often a punkster.
Punkster: OMG, i hate George Bush. Fuckin Nazi. I wish somebody would assassinate him already and kill his whole family. He did 9/11 you know!
Me: Who cares about Bush? We already know he's a dick, we already know he's fucked things up, but he's going to be out of office in a year or so anyway. There are other things in the world that are more important right now. If you want something to change, DO it.
Punkster: Fuck you, fuckin poseur
. (Walks away, chains, saftey pins, and piercings jingle)
Me: OMG, I hate punksters.
