A genre of person characterized by wearing combat boots, military jackets, loud music, alcohol, and spending alot of time out in the street. Sometimes panhandling. This genre has 2 subcategories:
1. Anti-Nazis. These are punks whom wear the "NAZI PUNKS FUCK OFF" gear and etc, they sport a variety of hair styles (generally a mohawk or spike variety) and are nice people, they just dont have the best manners. They have a traditional punk view except they tend to be social liberals with anti-establishment overtones. An anti-nazi is signatured by their anti-nazi patch worn on their right arm and has an ecto-sign over a swastika. Usally coupled with a sharpied message (i.e."Erase Racism"). An anti-nazi band is The Casualties.
2. Iron Crosses. These are nazi-skinheads who tend to predominate in the south and are the exact opposite of the anti-nazis. They hate about every minority, shave their heads, are violent, listen to skrewdriver, and wear the iron cross(a german medal of valor) as their logo. Open about their preachings of hate.
NOTE: Iron Crosses are often confused with trads, who are non-nazi skins who simply live a lifestyle of party and political nihilism. Trads are bands like Blanks 77. They look similar, except trads DO NOT wear the swatika/germany gear.
Anti-nazi: Hello, I dont give a flying fuck what you think of me and I have strong political opinions.
Iron Cross: HEIL HITLER!
A form of harder, faster, more angry type of punk music. Street punk derived from "the streets" (hence the name)Usually working class or poor, street punks know how life is out on the street and are aware of the world around them.
Though the roots are not exactly known, most street punk music began in the UK with "The Spirit of '77" and "UK '82", which is a name for the eras of street punk.
Street punks usually have the most colorful of outfits, out of all forms of punk. Usually street punks wear leather jackets or denim jackets with studs and band logos or beliefs either painted or sewn on. Street punks also usually wear plaid pants, or tight stretch jeans, along with boots like doc martens. "Mohawks" and "Liberty Spikes" are among the many hair styles worn, as well as hair dyed radical colours.
Street punks may have a "tough" image, but most are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Usually the most accepting also.
Though their image is the main thing that sets them apart, Street punk is more about unity, acceptance, diversity, and fighting for what you believe in, regardless of the consequences.

Street punk is the strongest form of punk today. Bands like The Unseen, A Global Threat, The Casualties, Cheap Sex, and Lower Class Brats play street punk. Street punk music is DIY, loud, fast, offensive, and often talks about the Street Punk scene, politics, or violence. Street punks tend to hate bands such as AFI, Greenday, and all those other non-DIY bands. The lifestyle of street punks is layed back, fun, and strong. Street punks tend to drink a lot of beer, except some. Street punks are also divided, slightly. Street punks tend to be the nicest and most accepting of the subsubcultures, as long as you conform with the most important issues. Street punks tend to dislike the other "punks." Street punks live punk to it's fullest, and believe in every aspect of old-school punk. Street punks often hate pop-punks (Sum41), skate "punks," (Greenday) modern-horror-punks (AFI) often because their music and conformity is different than what punk is supposed to be. (Sorry kids, but AFI isn't DIY, 3-chord, fast, and loud like punk is supposed to be...)
Street punks tend to wear Docs, hair, leather, plaid, bondage pants, patches, and other stuff like that. Although, if you ask any street punk they'll tell you that the clothes don't make them punk, the clothes are simply a sign that attracts unity and detracts unwanted people.

Street punk is a term used to define the genre of music.

Many people look at these kids and they see criminals, and thugs. Though, if you get to befriend and get to know some street punks, they are fun and usually easy to get along with. Among many vices, alcohol is a big one. Street punks are usually mocked by crusty kids, hardcore kids, and emoes. Though, they usually fight back, because street punks don't take shit from anybody. Despite common belief, street punks aren't idiots. They are the kids of the street. Street punk is the place where they feel like they belong, usually because they feel like they are not part of mainstream society.
examples of street punk is the early Oi! movement. This movement was started because most kids were sick of the popular punk like the Sex Pistols(which all the rich kids loved, and made their trend). These kids felt alienated from mainstream society.
A street punk is the last of a once noble and respectable subculture that's now been almost thoroughly commercialized. Still listens to genuine music made by genuine people without the frivolities of fancy recording equipment and without the shackles of a major record label. A true, untrammelled seeker of freedom. Many are hard drinkers. Most can shoot a boot to your temple faster then you can count to three. They are frequently some of the nicest, most open and accepting people around. But they can still whoop your ass in heartbeat.
