A modern punk is someone in today's world who holds traditional punk mentalities such as being anti-establishment, following DIY ethic, or anti-capitalist. Modern punks generally dress in a manner that is alternative or directly opposed to contemporary fashion or trends. Pop-punk is not modern punk, because it is made to be popular; and nobody likes a kiss-ass.
Sure, we modern punks have got that old punk spirit; but if the hardcore punks of the mid-80's got in a time machine and traveled to the year 2009, they'd kick the living shit out of us.
