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!"

A man in prison that has the "niche" of being the person that gets raped by all of the larger prison inmates. This man is taken advantage of by all the inmates and is therefor known as a "punk"

According to a 1950's slang dictionary the true root for the label "punk" was "a young male companion of a sodomite."
That boy in the red light district on the corner is nothing but a punk.

There is no definition. It can be anything you want it to be. It's who you are, and there is no definition to that.

Patric: "they dont say that on Mtv"

1)Punk is NOT:
Avril Lavigne, Hilary Duff, Hot Topic, Sum 41, Good Charlotte.
Punk IS:
An i-dont-give-a-flying-rats-ass attitude towards a lot of things. Having strong feelings against the government and politics in general. a bit of an anarchist

The punks that I'm friends with:
have strong opinions about politics and the government, are against any form of supression against them, are drunks, drug addicts, pretty tough, crazy, easy going, a bit narcisstic, ARE NOT RACIST HOMOPHOBIC ETC., and apathetic (don't care about much).
Dressing in plaid and leather jackets doesn't make you punk.
Sorry to burst yer little bubble...
Having a "i really don't give a shit, fuck you" attitude, being kind of anarchist, misbehaving...now that's a bit closer...
Dressing in tight pants, boots, a leather jacket, and studs with a lovely multi-colored mohawk on top, doesn't make you "SO PUNK RAWK".
even if you wear Lacoste and Abercrombie and all that...
If you have the attitude, yer techincally a punk.

2) Loud, fast, and aggressive music.
examples of real PUNK music: Ramones, Iggy and the Stooges, The Dead Boys, A Global Threat, Aus-Rotten, Reagan Youth, The Virus, The Casualties, Crass...just to name a few.

Lyrics are usually about the government and politics and other topics to release anger...also sometimes humorous, rude, dirty, or morbid things (such as killing babies or raping mothers).
1) Person1: ew those are some nasty shoes.
"Punk": yeh i really don't care what you think. i like them a lot so go fuck yerself.

2) "I Want To Be A Facist Pig, Love To Fight, What A Thrill, We Don't Stop Until We Kill. I Want To Be A Facist Pig!"
"Don't respect something that has no respect
don't sympathize with something that has no sympathy
don't understand something that has no understanding
Don't give them their freedom, because they're not going to give you yours
Fuck nazi sympathy
Don't give them their freedom, because they're not going to give you yours"
