The myth: Punk is a rebellious form of music, or a lifestyle, in which drunk teenagers with mohawks and extreme clothing beat each other up and burn things, then brag about it to their friends.
The truth: None of you know what punk is. Quit trying to define something that you haven't figured out because you're too busy listening to the Sex Pistols and shopping at Hawt Subject.
The myth: "Yeah I just bought a $100 pair of pants I don't need from Hawt Subject! I love being exploited by the system I oppose, yeahhhh!"
The truth: "Shut up and have fun. Oh yeah, I forgot. I'm supposed to include the word 'punk' in here. Well, I just did."
