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. Punk rock, anarcho punk, crust punk, pop punk, and '77 punk are genres. Do not let anyone tell you that punk is a music genre. Especially if this person considers Hot Topic to be a place to buy punk stuff. It is, in fact, the very thing that Johnny Rotten and all the other early punks were rebelling against.

Johnny Rotten may very well have been in the first punk rock band. The Sex Pistols came out of nowhere to shock the world with their first single, "Anarchy In The UK", completely taking the music industry for a roller coaster ride.

Johnny's US equivilent would probably have to be Jello Biafra, lead singer of the Dead Kennedys. Although Jello sang of revolution, similar to The Clash, the two had alot in common. Neither one seemed to have much disernable singing talent, but they both had more than enough to say.

Nowadays, punk is divided amongst many smaller factions. Usually, these punk factions (such as street punk) hate each other, defeating the whole purpose of the movement. They all want change, and think they'll do it by bickering amongst themselves because of whose band can play the most power chords in a minute. So, for this reason, many people say punk is dead. Or at least deserves to die.
"Punk is my favorite musical genre!"
"NO, stupid, punk is a lifestyle. Punk rock is a musical genre."

a typical punk has dark/outrageous hair, skateboards, has piercings and listens to bands like the ramones, Sex Pistols and Green Day
Punk chicks are hot as long as they keep the hair normalish and dont go overkill on piercings

Little snot kids that try to touch you with dirty hands. Especially heinous are those punks that have just eaten popsicle sticks, their own snot, or are just plain the most punk kids on the planet.
"I'm a little punk with dirty hands coming over to touch your shirt that you just washed"

"Alright, get away you punk"
