the worst incarnation of rock (if you want to call it that) ever to be created, started by poser fags like blink 182 and avril lavign, not to mention Mtv. it is really just pop lyrics with "emo" music. the intrumentals are horrible, the singers sound like 8 year olds and in their videos they jump around like mad and seem to be having seizures. the bands have no talent and bost of hardcore attitudes when they are just whiney little boys screaming into a mic.

synonyms:
shit
crap
lame
pop

It is not about how cool you are, or how much better you are. Its about community. Its about expression. Its about going into a pit and being able to beat the shit out of someone and 5 min later you are friends. Its about not giving a shit what others say or think. Its being true to yourself.

Fuck 1 = man those guys look so queer
Fuck 2 = yea we are so much better than them. We are punk rock.

A wide genre of music. Often the cause of large arguments as to what bands actually fall into the genre.
Usually contains a strong political or personal message, but has evolved to include humour and personal emotions.

Quite often the term 'punk rock' is used to describe new, more poppy bands as opposed to the old school founders of the genre (who are known as simply 'punk').
Despite common belief, the genre does not include bands such as New Found Glory, Blink 182, Good Charlotte or Sum 41. All of whom are considered pop bands.
Man I saw the coolest punk rock band last night.

A genre of rock that is more about the message than the music. Punk songs are usually, but not always, made up of 3 chords.

If you're not sure if a song is punk, listen to the lyrics. If they are not about standing up for something the artist believes in (ie: anti-censorship, anti-war, anti-racism, etc.) then it is NOT a punk song. Punk is about standing up and fighting for something you believe in. It has nothing to do with the image or the artist, or even how the melody of the song sounds.

Examples of punk bands:
Sex Pistols, Ramones, Clash, NOFX, Rancid, Bad Religion

Nonexamples of punk bands:
New Found Glory, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, MxPx, Ataris, Thursday
Wannabe: "Hey! I wear clothes from Hot Topic! I'm punk!"

Real punk: "No, you're a poser. Punk has nothing to do w/ the clothes you wear."
