Punk is whatever you want, but isnt what I say it is. If I told you what punk was it wouldnt be right and if you told me youd be wrong. The music is only an expression of whats in the world and heart that created it.
"Punk is all about being who you are and saying fuck the rest of you"

"Punk is three chord songs played by garage rock bands in the late seventies"

Punk rock embodies the opposition that still currently exist between our right to Freedom of Expression and society's need to interpret or define each expressed thought, therefore creating oppression. Punk rock is a force that serves only to save us from ourselves.
Your abilities are not defined by your appearance.
Do not allow yourself to be controlled by learned behavior which teaches you to feel a false sense of security by judging a person based on anything other than actions.
Punk rock is more than an attitude, it challenges you to accept chaos.

a style of music that is rebelious to all that is popular in society. It goes against anything that is trendy. Punk rock is usually fast and the lyrics are of importance to what the band believes. But this is not a neccessity. Emo should not be in the same category as punk because it sux. Those emo kids need to shut the fuck up and quit complaining.
The Sex Pistols, The casulaties, Anti-Flag, NOFX, Rancid, The CLash, 7 seconds, Lars Fredricksen and the Bastards, Operation Ivy, Black Flag, Rollins band(pretty much black flag but more hard-core), The Unseen, Bad Religoin, Aerosol Methods(a punk band from Laurens, SC www.purevolume.com/aerosolmethods) Public Enemy was punk althought they sang rap. These are all punk rock bands.

a fast style of music created most of the time by 3 chord progessions.

bands that fall into the punk rock genre are the sex pistols, the clash, the ramones, iggy pop and the stooges, the buzzcocks etc.

bands that do not fall into the punk rock genre are led zeppelin (someone said this in an earlier post, they are hard rock, not punk rock), good charlotte, blink 182, avril lavigne, simple plan, sum 41 etc.
sheena is a punk rock-er.
