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 some of the greatest music of all time in my opinion. Real punk consists of bands like Minor Threat, Civil Disobedience, Leftover Crack, Bad Brains, A Global Threat, and so much more. (Notice I didn't put the typical Ramones or Sex Pistols because 1. they're not even that great 2. they ain't got shit on most hardcore punk bands out there and 3. they're kind of overrated.) Anyone that wants to say bands like MXPX or Lagwagon (I usually call them pussy punk, but even calling them any kind of punk at all is just insulting to the real deals) are punk deserves to be shot in the back of the fucking head, seriously. Notice that bands like that have a simple band name probably with no meaning behind it and lyrics that appeal to kids 12 and under...douche bag pussies. Bands like Bad Religion and A Global Threat a great meaning behind the title as well as the lyrics that usually have to do with the fucked up society we live in today. People may tell me that punk is dead but you know what? Doesn't mean I still can't like it. AND a lot of old school punk bands are still making great music today, so FUCK YOU! =]
Punks not dead, it just smells that way.

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.
upon seeing someone new

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

Punk 1 = cool...

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.

To try to define punk rock is stupid. Punk rock is a kind of music, and is the life style around it, that started it. Your punk if you really don't give a damn what people think. Punk rock music is generally raw and fast 3 chord music, and it always has lyrics that are about something that the written wants to be out there. The lifestyle of punk rock kids though doesn't mean you only listen to punk rock, it means you listen to, and do whatever you want and don't give half a fuck what other people think. A true punk rock kid could listen to one direction, acdc, the Ramones, and 5sos and still be punk rock cause if the way they held themselves and acted. If your punk, you speak and act out for what you believe in, especially of it will make you uncool.
I posted this because really? I looked this up for a joke, but the definitions accualy made me laugh, cause an accualy punk kid wouldnt care if you were trashing their bands or calling them not punk or whatever. Punks not dead, just misunderstood
Pop punk kid: I love blink 182, all time low, good Charlotte, and 5sos!
Poser punk rock: what the fuck? Good Charlotte and blink 182 have killed punk rock! The Ramones and Blondie are punk rock You aren't actually punk!
Punk rock: I like Sex Pistols, simple plan, dead Kennedy's, green day the clash, Ed Sheerhan, and five iron frenzy. Oh I'm not punk rock? I don't give half a fuck

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."
