Although punk music fans (not the dirtbags who refer to themselves as punks - actual non human-beings) have been saying that punk is dead since 1978, it actually wasn't proven to be true until 1991 or so - the year "punk" broke in America
Since the early 1990s, punk bands are played on the big rock and top 40 stations in even the most rural areas of the United States. Green Day, for instance, sells as many records as 50 Cent and records on about the same six-million dollar budget in the same lavish studios.
Punk rock is recording a demo on a tape recorder in a trailer and selling copies of the tapes out of the back of your 1973 Ford Galaxy.
Now a fashion trend dominated by white prep school kids and emos.
So shut the fuck up and go home. There's still scum, there's still nerds, there's still outcasts, and there's still real 'punk's (for lack of a better term).
Punk can't really die (but you can).
Person: Shut the fuck up.
