Punk music is great and all, but that depends on yr opinion and stuff... So far as clothes, nobody could ever care less, and if they're the type who DO care so much what others go about wearing, and stereotype, they're not really worth considering, ever. Don't worry about them.

Punk.
will.
always live.
so long as
there is someone standing up and fighting for what
they believe.
It's a lifestyle. You don't take bullshit.

That's all there really is to it. No matter what you might stand for, if yr standing up strong, not budging and basically being annoyingly difficult to those who oppose you, you can be (at least a bit) punk. Believe it or not, there aren't a CRAPLOAD of peope like that, but they're there.
Actually, mohawks are pretty awesome. I suppose they're some landmark, and y'know, when you think bout it, not many people like 'em. Survive the stares, rude accusitions bout worshipping the devil, even retaliate.... every con that comes with that awesome 'do, keep it (not just for the couple months that it's a trend) and yr punk. Fuck those mohawk-hating moosefucks!

Punk changed. It's not dead, but the name is being abused. Good punk, the old stuff, like MDC, The Clash, Misfits, Subhumans, Dead Kennedys etc., are being pissed on by bands like Blink-182 or Good Charlotte. Although bands like Blink and GC are called punk, they don't have the punk feel. They just feel poseurish. If they're reading this :Dressing punk doesn't make you punk.
Classic Punk - MDC, The Clash, The Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, Vice Squad, The Damned, Crass, Toxic Narcotic, Toy Dolls, The Ramones, Adicts, Lower Class Brats, etc.

Posuer Punk - Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Green Day, etc.

Recent, but real punk - Pennywise, NOFX, Rancid, etc.

Punk is a type of music.

Punk is a way of thinking.

Punk is a way of believing.

Punk is not what you wear.

Punk is not Blink-182. (Sorry, folks...)

Punk is not Sum 41!

Punk, is believing what you what to believe. Punk is going against the world. Punk is not caring who stares at you says "OH MY, WHAT AN AWFUL PERSON THAT MUST BE!". Punk is feeling what you want to feel, being who you want to be, punk is being somebody.

Punk is not what you see television! Or hear on the radio. Or read about in books or magazines! Punk is not about being like all the guys with mohawks and chelseas!

PUNK IS ABOUT BEING DIFFERENT! IT'S ABOUT HAVING VOICE AND AN OPINION!

And it doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, happy or sad, black or white, catholic or atheist. It doesn't matter if you live in a house, an apartment, a basement or on the street! PUNK ACCEPTS ANYBODY! ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY!
"Oh, I'm so punk, because, I just bought a Sex Pistols t-shirt!"= No.

A punk girl is like any other punk. She dresses how she wants, has very strong feelings about issues and authority, and is actually usually pretty happy. Punks usually play in some sort of awesome punk rock (or just punk) band. Common punk instruments are guitars and drums. They usually have colors in their hair. Punks like to be creative and try out new things, and they hated it when pop culture took over and it became 'cool' to be punk. Because being punk is being different and not 'blending in to the crowd'. Thanks for reading.
Punks are awesome, individual people. Punk rockers rule!!

punk was originaly not music. punk was not originaly a style. punk was not originaly a trend. punk was not originaly an attitude

punk was originaly a "male prostitute" in the 16th century of the UK.

1)Punk is a type of music in rock. Like a different type of rock would be ska, metal, or alternative. Punk, is usually reffered to as a type of music that contains a scratchy guitar sound, fast beat, and write about mostly the government and politics. Though, it always doesn't have to be that. Punk could be in your own terms.

2)A person that listens to mostly punk rock in general and doesn't care what other people say about him/her and always does his/her own thing. THAT's a real punk.
Punk Rock bands : the Misfits, Ramones, Green Day, the Explosion, and Rancid are some talented bands.

and anyone who says they're a punk, then be one, don't listen to other people, you are what you fucking are.

Punk music= Angry rock

That is the basis of punk.

Its a way of expressing yourself. Punk was started by The Sex Pistols, and the banner is now carried by many bands. Punk is one of the many strands of rock music, including metal , blues rock, and classic rock.

Theres a common misconception that you have to dress the part to listen to punk. It is total bs. It doesn't matter at all how you look. There is no need to get a mohawk, or rip ur fav tshirt. As long as you like the music, its fine by me

*NOTE*
ive been hearing that people are putting the jonas brothers under punk. that is bull shit. to do that is an insult to music itself.
jonas bros = a disney marketing plan
punk = real music
Punk bands:

The Sex Pistols
The Clash
Misfits
Billy Talent
The Ramones
Rise Against
