Last night, hit a good lick. I brought home three figures easy for about two hours worth of my time. Not too bad I don't think.

punk..a fashion era or a view of the world. Fuck who knows what the fuck being a punk is but we all are familiar with punk music. Punk music was the 70's version of "rebel rock" or "free minded", pretty much started in from Europe with bands like The Sex Pistols but made its filthy way over to the states where The Ramones where born. Most Ska listeners and Thrashers listen to punk;... being that the genre thrash is an offspring of punk, with punk originally sounding like something from the fucking Grease movie.

some punk bands:
Sex Pistols
No Ca$h
Black Flag
Old Metallica (kill Em' All)

Music for the sake of music. If it's played at a modern party and can be easily danced to, it's not punk.

These are some of the leading punk bands:
The Buzzcocks
Black Flag
The Damned
Dead Kennedys
Generation X (Gen X)
Greenday (but only Kerplunk, 1,039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, Dookie, Nimrod, and some of American Idiot)
THE JAM (some say they're mod, but they're the epitome of punk)
The New York Dolls
The Pogues
The Pretenders
The Ramones
Stiff Little Fingers
Early U2
The Velvet Underground
The Who
XTC (believe me)
The Adverts
Iggy Pop
Talking Heads
And there are so many more, I can't possibly list all the best
Go online. Look up No Thanks! The '70s Punk Rebellion. That is punk music

MCR = Punk AND Emo
Old Greenday = Punk

Avril Lavigne = NOT PUNK!

I AM a punk. Yeah, I'm sitting here telling you this because I feel like it. This is our music. You outsiders who're trying to tell us what we are can go **** yourselves.

Listening to our music doesn't MAKE you a punk. It just supports it. It's mostly about the music. It's not All about the music. It's not all about the appearance.
Punk isn't just a look. Its a state of mind.

Fake Punk: I listen to punk music, so I'm like a punk now!
Real Punk: NO.
Fake Punk: Prove it!
Real Punk: Can you touch your elbow to your nose?
Fake Punk: Yeah! *does it* so I'm a punk now?
Real Punk: No, you're double-jointed.
