A punk girl is like any other punk. She dresses how she wants, has very strong feelings about issues and authority, and is actually usually pretty happy. Punks usually play in some sort of awesome punk rock (or just punk) band. Common punk instruments are guitars and drums. They usually have colors in their hair. Punks like to be creative and try out new things, and they hated it when pop culture took over and it became 'cool' to be punk. Because being punk is being different and not 'blending in to the crowd'. Thanks for reading.
Punks are awesome, individual people. Punk rockers rule!!

A late 20th century phenomenum. The greatest, most earth-shaking popular culture since rock'n'roll. Musically, an natural evolution of folk/protest music. For the people, by the people, an accessable documentaion of modern times. Genuine eccentricity for the modern age, lampooning all trends before it and sticking two fingers up to a confused and plastic world.

A very wide genre of rock started in 1977 that has a sound that has infleunced countless types of music some of which including: streetpunk, oi, d-beat, crust powerviolence, pop-punk, grind, indie, emo, screamo, hardcore, deathrock, 77, uk82, glam, hair metal, speed metal, and even sludge metal.

It is a label that is largely misunderstoof by the public (despite what they may think) and so overused that obvious fallacies to what the style is (fast, loud, and hard) have become accepted. Such clearly pop acts like Hilary Duff have been labeled punk which is downright laughable.
Punk has become too wide of genre to apply to any specific type of music now. Almost any band that plays fast, loud, and hard can be called punk, although not always correctly.

The punk music label has become simply a matter of perspective, for example: a common streetpunk might say that The Casualties are a punk band, while a crust punk would simply laugh at this, and then proceed to listen to Axegrinder.

Punk is a type of music.

Punk is a way of thinking.

Punk is a way of believing.

Punk is not what you wear.

Punk is not Blink-182. (Sorry, folks...)

Punk is not Sum 41!

Punk, is believing what you what to believe. Punk is going against the world. Punk is not caring who stares at you says "OH MY, WHAT AN AWFUL PERSON THAT MUST BE!". Punk is feeling what you want to feel, being who you want to be, punk is being somebody.

Punk is not what you see television! Or hear on the radio. Or read about in books or magazines! Punk is not about being like all the guys with mohawks and chelseas!

PUNK IS ABOUT BEING DIFFERENT! IT'S ABOUT HAVING VOICE AND AN OPINION!

And it doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, happy or sad, black or white, catholic or atheist. It doesn't matter if you live in a house, an apartment, a basement or on the street! PUNK ACCEPTS ANYBODY! ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY!
"Oh, I'm so punk, because, I just bought a Sex Pistols t-shirt!"= No.

Punk is a lifestyle.
A mental state.
The need to shake off all supression.
To be FREE.
Remember that word, Free.
It's listening to the Ramones in a basement with friends while smoking a blunt.
It's kicking over a sign and saying FUCK THAT.
It's defying the rules that you see to be unfit.
It's defying the system that you see to be stupid.
It's Punk.

A poser is that who will take this definition.
Go out, and do exactly what was written.
So.
FUCK YOU.
"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over the garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!"
