background: the word 'pseudo' meaning fake, put together with 'punk'.
A person who trys to be punk and "hardcore", but truly is the exact opposite. pseudo-punks bring shame to true punks. many claim they are "anarchists" as well, even though they consistantly shop from hot topic, which contradicts basic anarchist morals. a psuedo punk may do but is not limited to the following: wearing ramones and sex pistols shirts, and not knowing ONE song by either, shopping from hot topic (as mentioned above), calling anyone who doesn't dress like them and/or disagrees with them "preps" and "conformists", and may smoke pot or do other narcotics to be rebellious.
ramones fan: nice ramones shirt you got there. what's your favorite song by them?
psuedo-punk: uhhhmm, erm, i dunno..."sex and drugs"?
ramones fan: uh, that's not a ramones song.
psuedo-punk: just shut up you stupid preppy!1!11!!
