Punk is just being different, not being a follower. But this can be misleading, true punk is INNER. When you see the people with the huge liberty spikes yelling "Anarchy" and shit like that, those are posers. It's not being different as an, what you look like, but what you feel, who you are, and not giving a shit whether people accept you or not.
True: Having fun, and doing the stupidest things for the hell of it, because it makes you happy. Being a true punk.

False: Breaking random shit to show off for your friends.

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.

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 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.

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!
