A form of harder, faster, more angry type of punk music. Street punk derived from "the streets" (hence the name)Usually working class or poor, street punks know how life is out on the street and are aware of the world around them.

Though the roots are not exactly known, most street punk music began in the UK with "The Spirit of '77" and "UK '82", which is a name for the eras of street punk.

Street punks usually have the most colorful of outfits, out of all forms of punk. Usually street punks wear leather jackets or denim jackets with studs and band logos or beliefs either painted or sewn on. Street punks also usually wear plaid pants, or tight stretch jeans, along with boots like doc martens. "Mohawks" and "Liberty Spikes" are among the many hair styles worn, as well as hair dyed radical colours.

Street punks may have a "tough" image, but most are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Usually the most accepting also.

Though their image is the main thing that sets them apart, Street punk is more about unity, acceptance, diversity, and fighting for what you believe in, regardless of the consequences.

A street punk is the last of a once noble and respectable subculture that's now been almost thoroughly commercialized. Still listens to genuine music made by genuine people without the frivolities of fancy recording equipment and without the shackles of a major record label. A true, untrammelled seeker of freedom. Many are hard drinkers. Most can shoot a boot to your temple faster then you can count to three. They are frequently some of the nicest, most open and accepting people around. But they can still whoop your ass in heartbeat.

an offshoot of the early british oi! scene pioneered by bands like cock sparrer and the 4-skins. some of the early streetpunk bands included the varukers, vice squad, blitz, the exploited, and the business. most present streetpunk bands such as union 13, the unseen, the krum bums, resilence, and the devotchkas have taken on a more aggresive style of streetpunk, but some bands like the street brats, the lancasters, and antidote (the one from holland, not new york) still play the more traditional style of it. it has widely become a laughing matter in most punk circles because most of its most outspoken bands (the casualties, cheap sex, and about 90% of the other bands on punkcore records) sing about nothing more than how drunk they can get, how punk they are, how much they hate emo and how spiky their hair is.
streetpunk is a great genre if you know what bands to listen to

Street Punks were originally Punk, but now less 'punk' bands have taken over the term Punk.
Street Punks have mohawks, spiked hair, chains, peircings, Doc Martens, leather jackets and listen to bands like Oxymoron and The Casualties. The common symbol they were is the Anarchy Symbol and they are usually interested in politics.
"Wow those street punks look scary, and a bit like clowns, they probably wouldn't bash us though."
