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!

A late 20th century phenomenum. The greatest, most earth-shaking popular culture since rock'n'roll. Musically, an natural evolution of folk/protest music. For the people, by the people, an accessable documentaion of modern times. Genuine eccentricity for the modern age, lampooning all trends before it and sticking two fingers up to a confused and plastic world.

Ruptured Ambitions.

Vivian Stanshall.
Ian Dury.
John Peel.

Punk is a lifestyle. the ramones did not start punk rock they simply lived it. No one started punk it was picked up. In this day and age there are still punks but there are just as many posers.
Many punks express their views through music known as "good ass shit" so pick up a fucking circle jerks or germs album and get out your fashionable fuckin world....live a little

Being punk isn't about trying to be different just to be different. It's not about wearing the coolest looking studded belt, it's not about dying your hair cause your parents don't want you to. It's not about being a bad ass and trying to impress anyone. It's not about being able to tell someone to "fuck off". It is about being able to be who you are and standing up for what you believe in. It's about being an individual.
&&Im the real -punk- deal, mother fucker.

Before the "punk" music scene took over, punk was only known as a male prostitute, or a male who participates in sodemy.
Look at that punk over there walking into that gay bar!

One thing that Punk obviously is not would be unified. Or having the same belief. Punk is perfectly acceptable for drop out age kids through early or mid twenties. After that it's like " ok lady your scaring us". "Fuck the Government,fuck what people say,I am my own person". " hey I'm punk, maybe broke live with mom but I'm movin out next month because she is ating like a bitch and I'm going to be fourty next week".
Old man on death bed..... "Hey kids keep punk alive ok, and don't ever let any one tell you what to do" "Tell us more ole wise one" "OK, fuck what any body thinks and always think about yourself only defend these things and oh yes never I mean never listen to what antbody else has to say remember you are the most important person in the world. Fuck family fuck( coughing up blood)every thing

I would like to start this by saying that I wasnt alive in the seventies and I never got the chance to see the likes of The Pistols, The Clash or even The Ramones. This is simply my opinion.

I think that:

Punk is a loud, fast, often anti-establishment type of music. It was influenced by and has influenced many different types of music. It started in the seventies and was popularized by The Clash, Sex Pistols and the Ramones. Punk is not an image it is a belief and a lifestyle as well as a type of music.

Since the end of the seventies it has become impossible to truly define becuase it gave birth to so many different forms of music such as indie, goth, hardcore, emo, punk pop etc. Because of this a sort of "punk snobbery" has developed, were "true punks" look down upon others for not being around in that era.

Definately Punk: Sex Pistols, The Clash, Ramones

A little bit Punk: The Jam, Blondie, Green Day

Not Punk: Avril Lavine, Good Charlotte, Elliot Minor
Punk is not a fashion sense and it should not be an opportunity to look down on people because they are just beggining to get into Punk with "softer bands" like The Jam or Green Day.

Punk is a lifestyle.
A mental state.
The need to shake off all supression.
To be FREE.
Remember that word, Free.
It's listening to the Ramones in a basement with friends while smoking a blunt.
It's kicking over a sign and saying FUCK THAT.
It's defying the rules that you see to be unfit.
It's defying the system that you see to be stupid.
It's Punk.

A poser is that who will take this definition.
Go out, and do exactly what was written.
So.
FUCK YOU.
"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over the garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!"
