when you listen to punk, it makes you feel angry and alive, you want to make shit and fuck shit up, and in that moment you really honestly don't give a fuck what anybody thinks about you. that's what punk is about. it doesn't matter what you look like or what you listen to; it's about feeling that raw energy. punk is like the statue you get to touch in a museum full of things you have to stand six inches away from. and now you're going to make it yours.
seriously, put on some punk and see if you can feel it.

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!"

Punk is messy, and dirty, and fucking good. The music is radical, the lyrics filled with ego and attitude, and the way punks dress to signal that they are rebels and they are proud to differ frok everyone else.
The style of punk ranges from crazy, dyed hair (blues, pinks, reds, etc), and accessories such as backwards snapbacks, thick wristbands with spikes going up them. It is converse, with mismatched laces (not necessarily) and tight black jeans. It's different, and bloody amazing, so preps should shut up and realise that hey, they look pretty stupid too, all dressed with funny trends and pink ands hit.

Punk is different from emo due to the attitude.

Emos are like this, "I fuckin hate my life, everybody hates me and I don't blame them. I'm gonna go cut myself. It makes me feel better."
Punks are like this, "Fuck you, dammit! I don't care what you say, coz I'm epic and no one can stop me from rocking with the best of them! YEAH!"

To be a true punk, you need to respect and understand the music. You need to feel the lyrics and even write your own punk songs. This will never happen, but it would be great if people just sit back and say, "y'know what, that's who they are. They're not wannabe freaks. They're not insane spastics. They are cool, and they know it, and they like to express."
We can all dream, punks.
Taken from Green Day, legendary punk band,

"Ha ha you're dead
And I'm so happy
You were an asshole
And now you're gone."
