A "musical" movement that pretty much consisted of playing really bad music very very fast. People seeking individuality started saying that they enjoyed these bands as a way to seperate them from the crowd, when there was no possible way that anybody could enjoy the music. While some good bands have come out of the movement (namely The Clash, The Ramones, NOFX, The Presidents of the United States of America, and Green Day), the majority of it is loud pointless noise.

One of the worst elements of punk is the "hardcore" movement led by bands such as Black Flack and DOA, which was made of a bunch of skinheaded racist anti-semites who liked punching each other at shows. The modern "hardcore" movement is even worse.

And adjective term to describe beat up, broke ass, dirty, makeshift clothing, furniture and appliances. Not necessarily a compliment.
Man, those shoes are totally punk rock, you must shop at Ross Dress for Less.

I like how you duct taped that hole in your ceiling to fix it from leaking, that's pretty punk rock.

Conterary to popular belief, punk rock is not Blink 182, GC, Billy Talant, etc. Punk rock is much more then that. Punk rock isn't 'punks singing rock'. Oh no. If thats the case there would be 'prep rock'. Punk rock is fast paste, short music, with songs about 2 minutes each, and in concert, the band could sing the whole c.d. in about 20 minutes. THATS punk rock.
An example of Punk rock are the Rosannes(Sp?)...or Disturbed or something like that.

Punk Rock is a shitty genre of music that people with no taste listen to. Some say it's a 'way of life' but those people are generally shallow and mindless, going with the crowd that they think shares the same antiestablishmentarian views as they believe they have.
Listen to anything that's really bad, like a cat throwing up or someone drowning a baby animal. Anything like that and you've got a pretty good idea of what it's like to listen to punk rock.

Fast and hard music that is generally not too musical but new-wave punk is more catchy and tunefull such as blink 182 green day NOFX the distillers rancid etc... old punk is more about not caring and anarchy or being yourself like the ramones the sex pistols the clash the saints iggy and the stooges etc...
Oh and punks hate hippies!
Blink 182: I hate the jocks the hippie f**kin scumbags, heavy mettallers with their little pussy hair bands.
sex pistols:I am an anarchist I don't know what I want but I know how to get it

Punk rock is a very good sound of music. Started in the 70s with "Ramones" but didnt really get to good untill the british made it better. It has been dead. for along time. Deals with anti conformity, anti establishment, about anti everything. It is all about haveing fun and fucking the system.
Punk:Dead Kennedys,Adolescents,Black Flag,Clash,Damned,Buzzcocks,Public IMage Limited,Ducky boys,UK subs,X Ray Spex, Lower Class Brats, Social Distortion,The Niggers

Not Punk: Green Day, Good Charlotte, Simple Plain, Blink 182.
