A Middle finger to the progressive rock movement. Often consists of simple fith chord structures. However the music is not as important as the message; there are no rules.
Punk Rock can be divided into many sub-genres such as pop punk, street punk, nu punk, old skool punk stc.

The most powerful and energetic music ever made. THe music that doesnt hold back and refuses to be censored. the musics who has something to say about everything, and most importantly the music that will never die as long as punk bands are still making good music (The Virus, THe Unseen, lots of local bands, and etc.), the punk music that was made a long time ago (Minor Threat, Social Distorion, Bad Brains, Conflict, The Exploited, Black Flag, The Subhumans, The Germs, and i could go on forever) lives on inside us and influences us still, and that there are still true punks that support the scene. In the words of The Exploited, "Punk's Not Dead!"
Punk1: Good Charlotte and Simple plan and all those other pop punks band killed punk.
Punk2: Punk's not dead! Those bands do suck ass, but they didnt kill punk. punk'll never die.
Punk1:tru dat boi

Started out as music but then quickly became a clique for trendy,fashion-conscious,middle-schoolers.
Every now and then an actual punk band plays some actual punk.This doesn't happen very often though.You usually have to sift through mountains of gay bullshit to get to the good punk!

Punk rock is a style of music that doesn't always have to be fast, loud, and deliberately offensive, but usually is.
Bands that helped create this style of music would be such bands as the Ramones, Sex Pistols, Bad Religion, NOFX, the Vandals, and every single other band that keeps punk alive.
Oh and GC isn't punk, pop-punk is still good in Enemy You, Teen Idols, and the Travoltas.
Kid 1: Taking Back Sunday is so punk
Kid 2: No...no they aren't
