In MTV's eyes, punk is any band with low self esteam that breaks curfew to look cool.

A real punk doesn't give a shit about relationships, he'd just slap the bitch.

BTW Punks naturally have black around their eyes from binge drinking. Good Charlotte just uses it for makeup to look "cool"

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.

Pre-Sid Vicious, pre-any stringy young male, "Punk" referred to the passive or "bottom" partner in a male-on-male prison sexual relationship. (The dominant or "top" man was called the "jock" or "jocker".) Since the punk was usually the scrawnier and younger of the two, that meaning of the term escaped into the general culture and eventually became attached to young, rebellious men fronting kick-ass rock bands.
(Description of a prison killer in Truman Capote's IN COLD BLOOD 1966): "Just two jockers fighting over a punk."

can sometimes be used as an insult.
"What the hell are you doing, punk?!"

Ideally, a style of music in which a small group of informed and active people get together and produce a raw, simplistic, chord-driven sound to back up lyrics that expose problems in the world and usually incite anger and energy.

If done wrong, however, it results in a bunch of freaks with dyed hair banging away on guitars and yammering about American idiots.
Punk's not dead
It just deserves to die
When it becomes another stale cartoon
A close-minded, self-centered social club
Ideas don't matter, it's who you know -Dead Kennedys

Joe: Let's go hit up punk for some dinner!
Sue: Sounds good to me!

A contradiction.
Whatever I say it is, someone will disagree with it and someone will agree. Everyone has their own opinion on what punk is and there is no set definition.
Person1: Some punk broke my window.

Person2: Look at my wallet chain. It makes me so punk.

Person3: The Sex Pistols are punk.

Person4: Good Charlotte is punk.
