Against popular thought-- sorta like what punk USED to be, before all these shat-out poppy bands performed a horrible injustice to the genre.
Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun was anathema to how people tend to view the thoughts of WWI-- that they supported war. Trumbo, along with much of the US, was opposed to it.

Anathema to teen logic, Aquasol is opting to go to prom alone, not because it's "punk", not just because he's introverted, but because he just felt like it.

Some Schizophrenic bastard who lives down the hall from you, and stares you like he might kill you next.
He calls himself Dangerous Death. I think he is an anathemic bastard.
