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

1.) a type of music that speaks the truth so bluntly and loudly that most dislike to hear it.
To all those who are the people and to all those who believe and for those

who know a better world exists and can be achieved through new thoughts,

new ideas, music and politics not through religion, war, and social

clarity; to those who wish to break free from conformity, racism, facism,

prejudice, narrow-mindedness. We dedicate this

definition of punk rock to

those people.

Baby, I'm an Anarchist-Against Me!
Maria-Rage Against the Machine
Blood-Red White and Blue-Rise Against
To The World-Strike Anywhere
American Jesus-Bad Religion

For those of you who still think punk rock is dead after reading our definition, to you we say, you're not punk rock because if you were you would realize there is still punk rock, you're confusing a lot of music that would fall under an entirely different category than "punk rock" but is still delivering the same message but has been completly raped and mutilated by the media and by society.

at the punk rock show the singer stuck the microphone up his ass then took a shit onstage and got down and licked it then threw it at the audience.also someone jumped off the balcony but nobody went to see if he was o.k.

A genre of music that has hard, fast, and rough music and lyrics that attack the popular culture and government. Very anti-establishment. Famous true punk bands are The Clash, Ramones, The Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and The Buzzcocks. Newer punk bands, most famous Green Day and Bowling for Soup, have a lighter tone, but is still considered punk over other music.

Pop-punk is a genre that combines the same types of lyrics and combines it with softer and lighter music. Blink-182, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, and Sum 41 are this genres pioneers and famous bands.

Generally, punk rock is one of the biggest categories of rock music but has never been fully considered mainstream since its creation in the 70s in the U.S. and England. 924 Gilman Street in the East Bay is a famous club where many underground bands play.
The Clash is a famous punk rock band. currently, the most famous punk band is probably Green Day.
