A brilliant form of music that was actually founded by music god Lou Reed with this band Velvet Underground (sorry pop-punkers but it was the great Mr. Reed who actually has talent that founded punk, not fucking GC or some other crappy excuse for a band). Other real punk bands include the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, The Buzzcocks and many more.
Lou Reed and Joe Strummer are excellent musicians. Benji Madden and the guy from Blink 182 are shit. Can't get a better example than that.

Freedom rebellion. Not a stereotype to a certain type of clothes or hairstyle. Unless you know you are punk, that is considered hypocritical. It's an inside feeling, a way one sees the world, to explore it freely and express yourself within it and the punk rock music. Even crossing boundaries to different genres, because, of course, without punk rock... all music wouldn't be the same today. You might be punk if you don't care what others think of yourself, under any circumstances.
Punk rock is what I say it is! You think you are so cool by criticizing me? I don't have to listen to what you say, no one ever had to. I'm not going to change for anyone, and that including you. Instead, I'll take problems, like you for example and scream about them in a loud manner, so that the whole world knows.

punk rock is a type of music usually 3 chord progressions but can be more. its generally short fast paced angst nihilistic music. punk started in the late 60's with lou reed and the velvet underground, iggy pop and the stooges, and the new york dolls. then in the mid 70s bands like the ramones and richard hell and the voidoids formed and began playing at the cbgb in new york. then quickly after that there were punk bands in the u.k. like the buzzcocks, the damned, the clash, and the sex pistols. they were more about making a statement than musical talent. there then was then L.A. scene with bands like the germs,x,black flag, and the weirdo's. then there were several other scenes like the DC scene with bands like minor threat and Bad brains. but there are many differant types of punk like pop punk bands like the ramones and the buzzcocks, which was catchy melodic tunes. theres Oi punk which is like the exploited and Sham 69, which is like more of the nazi punk type of music it is usually racist. theres ska/ragae ragae is like bob marley which may not generally be considered punk but it kinda goes along with it and is somewhat the influence for ska which is like faster raggae like operation ivy. theres hardcore which is like bands like the dead kennedys,bad religion,the germs,circle jerks, and black flag. theres new wave which most ppl may not consider to be a type of punk but it is whether or not u want to admit it, these bands are like devo,blondie, and duran duran. then there was grunge which was bands like nirvana, foo fighters, and soundgarden. umm thats about it but umm this is responding to an earlier post where someone said the new bands like gc and simple plan are just like boy bands with instruments lol i think thats pretty funny and its pretty true. umm but i dont think there is a specific term for "being punk" as ive heard people say. Jello said its thinking for yourself which i think is true and u should be independant and not some trendy ass "mall punk" ok well thats it.
i dont really have an example that i didnt already list up there ^
