Mainly used as a term for people with little imagination to berate skateboarders. Used in the same sense as Skate Fag
Skate or Die and so on...
Can be heard yelled from passing cars when trying to skateboard in small towns across the U.S. by Rednecks.
In most circumstance a term used by someone who has never actually stepped on a skateboard to define an entire culture as punks that skate.
May be a way for those whom would have wanted to skateboard at one time to associate with those whom did. Sometimes used by actual punk bands with a dwindling audience to boost records sales ala No Need for a name or avril lavigne in a lesser sense skater boi or whatever that garbage is.
Hey Skater Punk! Do a trick man! Do a kickflip dude!
Someone who is so noncomformist that they are just like the rest of the people that are noncomformists. They deride anyone who does ANYTHING mainstream and disguise themselves and bohemians. They tell everyone that they are unique, when they are, in fact, just like every other hipster.
Trule, unique, free thinking individuals are special. Hipsters are bad caricatures of these people, and by simply being hipsters, are the embodiment of everything they dislike. They are their own joke.
Hipsters are also like the stem cells of every other 'counter culture'. Take a hipster, put an X on their hand, and they are straight edge for the day. Take a hipster, put a black sweater on them, and they are emo. Take a hipster, put a chain on their wallet and give them a pink t-shirt and you have this years mtv punk uniform. Unfortunately, this also means that hipsters are wishy washy in what they believe/think/want.
That dude that goes to punk shows and just stands there, doesn't move, and then complains that the band he is watching is too mainstream, commercialized, and conformist while trying to talk to the cute chick at the non-coporate, fair trade, organic, coffee house or Jamba Juice about the mainstream topic of the day. That dude's a hipster.
A person, ignorant in nature, usually uneducated and non-culutred. Other typical characteristics include: Jealousy, Hatred, Low Self-Esteem, to name a few.
Punk Bitch include everyone, especially on this site, who attempts to denigrate Black American Culture, by making fun of it. This would include: 1)not recognizing ebonics as a real and seperate language (If you were to take any time at all and learn the pre-requisites for language identification, you would have to agree that ebonics is a language. Ebonics has its own origin, structure, words, culture, just to name a few of the requirements). 2)Writing definitions for words that you have no idea what they mean. 3) Those who attempt to be accepted by Black America by acting in such a way that you "fit in" (Realize that if you white, and you're saying "nigga" you will not get very far). 4) Lastly, all those who harbor negative emotions for other races (including black people who hate white people) and attempt to defame the character of the race based on the history of our nation and the actions of people. Yes, if someone is racist, they are wrong; it doesn't mean that you have to stoop to their level and be just as ignorant as them.
A major driving force in today's American culture. Often used my groups of people taking names for themselves from a chosen genre then using it to become as exclusivist as the groups they claim to be shunned by. Used all too often to ostrasize and generalize to fit others into neat little packages and stray away from having to deal with anyone. Music is the most important thing to most people, but sometimes for the entirely wrong reasons. Music is beautiful and one of the best forms of self expression, do not use it to boost yourself.
Pretentious Teenager: Look at that freaky little Emo kid, what a poser.
"Emo" Kid: Fuck you, you fucking fuck.
Pretentious Teenager: You're too preppy to be a punk.
"Preppy/Punk" Kid: I don't give a flying fuck what you say, I like the music so fuck you in the ass with a lit cigar.

"Early Emo's Influence
In California, particularly in the Bay Area, bands like Jawbreaker and Samiam began to mix the DC influence with pop punk to come up with their own take on the classic DC emo sound. On Jawbreaker's album Bivouac, singer Blake Schwarzenbach evolved from the traditional hardcore vocal sound into a more melodic crooning, which displayed a more emotional feeling of loss than the desperation and frantic nature of MacKaye's voice. Other bands soon reflected the same sense of rough melody, including Still Life and New Jersey's Garden Variety. The style continued to evolve into the 2000s through bands like Avail and Hot Water Music.
Also in the early 90s, bands like Lifetime reacted in their own way to the demise of youth crew styled straight-edge hardcore and desired to seek out a new direction. While their music was often classified as emo, it was also considered to be melodic hardcore. In response to the more metal direction their hardcore peers were taking, Lifetime initially decided to slow down and soften their music, adding more personal lyrics. The band later added a blend of speed, aggression, and melody that defined their sound. Lifetime's sound, lyrics, and style were a virtual ...
The longest-lived sub-genre of music. New Wave's roots can be traced back to 1969, when David Bowie first released the song "Space Oddity". In 1973, when Bowie re-released "Space Oddity", the precursor to New Wave, punk rock was born. Throughout the mid-1970's, Punk bands such as The Ramones, Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Sex Pistols and The Clash were discovered. During the disco backlash of 1979 and 1980, Punk rose to the forefront, while other bands like Blondie, Talking Heads, R.E.M., U2 and Devo began what would become the initial New Wave movement, which was capped off in 1981 when Billy Joel mentioned New Wave in the song "It's Still Rock & Roll to Me". During the early 1980's, there was a lot of band evolution taking place, as Bauhaus broke up, reformed as Tones on Tail, then reformed as Love and Rockets, while Mick Jones of The Clash formed Big Audio Dynamite, The Sex Gang Children split in half and became Culture Club, Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode, formed Yaz and then Erasure, and The English Beat split into bands such as Style Council, Modern English and Fine Young Cannibals. It was during this time, in 1983 and 1984 that New Wave grew to encompass suchmore...
any group of people whose beliefs, values, styles, and attitudes differ from that of the prevailing culture. Counter-culture began with the hippie movement back in the late 60's and 70's. In today's society, counter-culture is most often seen in the alternative subcultures.
The gothic, punk, emo, skater, raver subcultures are all examples of present-day counter-cultures.
