-Dead Kennedys, "Nazi Punks Fuck Off"
The style of punk ranges from crazy, dyed hair (blues, pinks, reds, etc), and accessories such as backwards snapbacks, thick wristbands with spikes going up them. It is converse, with mismatched laces (not necessarily) and tight black jeans. It's different, and bloody amazing, so preps should shut up and realise that hey, they look pretty stupid too, all dressed with funny trends and pink ands hit.
Punk is different from emo due to the attitude.
Emos are like this, "I fuckin hate my life, everybody hates me and I don't blame them. I'm gonna go cut myself. It makes me feel better."
Punks are like this, "Fuck you, dammit! I don't care what you say, coz I'm epic and no one can stop me from rocking with the best of them! YEAH!"
To be a true punk, you need to respect and understand the music. You need to feel the lyrics and even write your own punk songs. This will never happen, but it would be great if people just sit back and say, "y'know what, that's who they are. They're not wannabe freaks. They're not insane spastics. They are cool, and they know it, and they like to express."
We can all dream, punks.
"Ha ha you're dead
And I'm so happy
You were an asshole
And now you're gone."
And no, having a mohawk doesn't make you punk. Neither does watching SLC Punk.
Me: ...Are you stupid?
Ignorant twit: Whatever, you just wish you were a real punk.
Me: Jebus, you probably don't even know what DIY stands for. Pathetic...
Ignorant twit: Whatever, I have a Good Charlotte concert to go to.
Me: And I have a Bloodclots show to go to. Off with you!
