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!


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.

Punk is a lifestyle, type of music, and in some cases, a type of fashion. But it's more about music and lifestyle. Punk music was pretty much visibly started in NYC in the 1970's by The New York Dolls, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, and the Ramones. It caught on to London, with the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Buzzcocks, etc. The lifestyle is often careless, happy, you do whatever you want. These people do not care. If they just wanna punch some random person on the street, they'll do it. Drugs played a big part in punk in the past. Violence is a huge part. Punk pretty much died out when the Ramones broke up for good in the mid 90s. Now the only punk things are the old punk bands. And the few people that still live the lifestyle. It doesn't matter how you dress, much.
(Random girl): OMG! I'm SOOO punk! I have Converse, artificially store-ripped $60 jeans, and a shirt that says something like "God save the Queen" on it or whatever. And I LOVE Good Charlotte and Simple Plan!

(Real punk person): *punches random girl in the face without saying a word*

Punk: The Ramones. The Sex Pistols. Johnny Thunders.
Not punk: Good Charlotte. Simple Plan. Kelly Clarkson. (You can't mosh to Kelly Clarkson!!!)

A real meanie.
Someone who is a fail at life and does nothing to help himself.
A punk lacks common sense.
The accuser who is calling the other person a punk may be jealous of the other person's luck, life, or a mixture of both. Therefore the accusor must also be a punk.
Punk: Hey Chester! How's it goin? Look at this awesome mayonaise bottle I found lying on the ground!

Normal person: What a punk...
