1. A "punk" was originally a tramp's young homosexual companion. In other words, a rent boy with no ethics.

It then mutated in meaning, via an insult connoting the same, to become a term for a ruffian (mid 20th century). It was in this sense it was used in Punk Rock from 1976 onwards.

2. TRUE: Someone who does what he or she wants because they like doing it, and not giving a fuck about what other people think.

3. FALSE: Someone who can't think for themselves, so imitates people from category 2 above, in an attempt to look kewl.
1. Punk was the English term for the French Apache - see George Orwell's Down & Out in Paris and London for details.

2. The most truly Punk thing that Johnny Rotten did was to quit the Sex Pistols and form PIL.

3. Busted were fake punks, who have now thankfully split up.

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.
