someone that views punk culture as an ‘aesthetic’ instead of gaining an understanding of the deeper history and meanings of it. these people only care about the fashion aspect of punk despite it also heavily relying on music and left-wing political views, most notably anarchism.

the circle-A aka the symbol associated with anarchy (Ⓐ) is largely used in the punk subculture, which is where the name ‘A aesthetic nightmare’ comes from.
