punk is not hard, punk is not soft, punk is expression, if I want to listen to what I want to cause I feel it defines my persona and dont follow what everyone follows for the sake of meeting the norm, I am a punk, if I wear what I want because it defines me and doest try to be like everyone else to be "cool" I am a punk, if I do what ever the fuck I want to do, I am a punk, are you?

Was a movement started in the 70s by bands like the Ramones, Clash, Sex Pistols, Casualties, Generation X, Mc5, Iggy and The Stooges etc. It was started in New York and made it's way to the UK around the year of 1975. It is now being ruined by bands like Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance etc. These people are more focused on looking the part than on the music and message that comes along with it. Maybe if they chilled out for awhile and were themselves they could actually be put into a position to put out an actual punk album. Other people probably wont agree with me but I Think Sum41 is a pretty decent "punk" band. Listen to the lyrics to Fat Lip and dare not to call them punk. Anyways, the stereotyped style includes things like

- Mohawks
- Multi-colored hair
- Tight jeans or ripped jeans
- Studded belts
- Peireced body parts
- Tattoos

You don't even have to look the part to be punk you just have to like the music and have the signature attitude,

- Defiant
- Politcally outspoken
- Anti-establishment

other traits I cannot think of.
The Runaways were a great punk band, but are never credited for it.

Nowadays, most people consider that punk doesn't exist anymore. Wrong...

When..
1. you are the master of your own fate
2. you are the gatekeeper of your life
3. you are the judge of all of your decisions
4. you suppress people who dare suppress you
5. you don't care at all
6. you resist people who are superior than you
7. you don't judge people through their knowledge, skill, livelihood, universal understanding
8. you live a carefree life
9. you are nobody's shadow
10. you are the defender of your personal likes
11. (like no. 6) you rebel from superiors who provoke you
12. you despise perfectionists
13. you don't let anyone corrupt your mind
14. you know what's good for you
15. you are just yourself....nothing else
...then that's the real punk in you..
These are PUNKS
1)It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

-Invictus by William Ernest Henley

A punk is a member of the "punk movement" from the 70's and 80's. These kids generally dressed in holey jeans and dirty t-shirts with old sneakers, mainly because they couldn't afford better apparal.

Punks were largly associated with the genre of rock and roll that was named for there movement. Punk bands were made up of punks and the music displayed the themes of the punk movement.

Punks generally believed in a few common principals:
1. They commonly felt that there was no future for them, and that they would end up in the same poverty that they had been born into. This usually caused them to act in somewhat destructive ways. They usually were angry at society for that they could not move up in the social ranks.
2. Punks were not in favor of the goverment. They felt that the government was unfair to people of there stature. Sinse they felt so against the goverment they usually acted out in ways opposite of what was politically correct.
3. Punkers generally liked things perceived as negative such as violance, anarchy, drugs, sex, and things of that type. They rejected the norm of society, probably because the norm of society had rejected them.
4. They enjoyed punk music and dressed poorly for the reasons previously stated.
Kid: Dad, you're from the 80's, what's a REAL punk?

Dad: Well I was a punk back in my day

Kid: Whatever dad, your hairs not green. Plus, you were POOR when you were a kid. You could NEVER afford the sick clothes all the punk kids wear.

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

Ideally, a style of music in which a small group of informed and active people get together and produce a raw, simplistic, chord-driven sound to back up lyrics that expose problems in the world and usually incite anger and energy.

If done wrong, however, it results in a bunch of freaks with dyed hair banging away on guitars and yammering about American idiots.
Punk's not dead
It just deserves to die
When it becomes another stale cartoon
A close-minded, self-centered social club
Ideas don't matter, it's who you know -Dead Kennedys
