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"

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.

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.

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

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."
