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.
Sum-41, New Found Glory, Green Day, Rancid, Brand New, etc.

A neo punk is a modern punk starting in the mid to late 90s and continuing into the 2000s and is still in full swing, neo meaning new and punk being punk its basicaly saying new-punk.
Modern punk varies a bit, but real modern punkers where studded leather jackets displaying bands they listen to what scene they are from, such as NYC or East Bay, also displaying political slogans and views, such as anti racism and very leftist or liberal beliefs. Mohawks and brightly colored hair is common among neo punks especially in the band "the casualties". Other neo-punk bands include Anit-Flag, The Unseen, Time Again, and Rancid(their newer stuff anyway).
1. A hardcore and faster form of rock made famous by the genre of music garage rock or mod.more...
punk music was an underground form of rock in North America and Australia in the early to mid 1970's while it became a sensation in the UK.
In the later 1970's a new form of punk emerged. This was a more hardcore and anti social version of punk rock starting a rivalry between old school punk fans and a much younger crowd of hardcore punk rock.
In the late 1970's and early 1980's an even newer era of punk began. That being New Wave. This was a different kind of punk. One because most people did not call their music punk rock any more but instead New wave. This era included bands such as Talking heads, Blondie and The police.
The next wave of punk rock comes in the 1990's to present. This wave of punk includes bands such as Nirvana, Bad religion, Green Day, the offspring and many more bands. Also screamo is another sub genre of punk. Screamo and emo are the most current sub genre of punk.
2. Punk. A lifestyle not a trend.

"Mod-Punks" or Mods, short for modernists, are people whom are influenced by 60's culture. They may wear 60's style attire including suits, dresses, and hair styles from that era.
Mods are not "Modern Day punks" like Green Day or Sum 41.
Mods are in the Punk scene, but not necessarily punks.

One who is influenced by techno/mod culture, and mixes their own funky style with that of the punk scene. In dress they are their own, and tend to have a unique, off-beat personality. They are probably counter-culture and an intellectual. Quite eccentric. Scientific/long name for them is "orthodox electro-punk misfit" or "orthodox electro-punk nerd".
"Wow, that new girl's so weird. She likes to wear eighties dresses and mosh to Madonna, what's her problem?"
"Oh, she's just one of those electro-punk kids. They like to call themselves 'orthodox electro-punk misfits' though."
