A form of harder, faster, more angry type of punk music. Street punk derived from "the streets" (hence the name)Usually working class or poor, street punks know how life is out on the street and are aware of the world around them.

Though the roots are not exactly known, most street punk music began in the UK with "The Spirit of '77" and "UK '82", which is a name for the eras of street punk.

Street punks usually have the most colorful of outfits, out of all forms of punk. Usually street punks wear leather jackets or denim jackets with studs and band logos or beliefs either painted or sewn on. Street punks also usually wear plaid pants, or tight stretch jeans, along with boots like doc martens. "Mohawks" and "Liberty Spikes" are among the many hair styles worn, as well as hair dyed radical colours.

Street punks may have a "tough" image, but most are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Usually the most accepting also.

Though their image is the main thing that sets them apart, Street punk is more about unity, acceptance, diversity, and fighting for what you believe in, regardless of the consequences.

A street punk is the last of a once noble and respectable subculture that's now been almost thoroughly commercialized. Still listens to genuine music made by genuine people without the frivolities of fancy recording equipment and without the shackles of a major record label. A true, untrammelled seeker of freedom. Many are hard drinkers. Most can shoot a boot to your temple faster then you can count to three. They are frequently some of the nicest, most open and accepting people around. But they can still whoop your ass in heartbeat.
Ian is a dyed-in-the-wool street punk, through and through.

Frustrated With Society, Economy And Government. Im not going to tell you what they wear what they look like. but i will tell you they are the nicest people you will ever come in contact with. Street Punks are the only thing that keeps true punk alive. i odnt care what you call your "punk bands" such as greenday, blink 182, good charlet, but please for every street punk at stake , please dont take the only thing that we have left. THIS IS OUR LIFE , NOT A TREND,FASHION OR FOR ANY SOCIAL ATTENTION. JUST LEAVE US ALONE AND STICK WITH YOUR STYLE.

Sometimes Apolitical, sometimes Anarchist, punks with DIY clothing who bum around, they stay outta their parents house, dont ask for money except from random people, dont have cell phones, dont have ipods, dont go to school, sometimes they got cassette players, they steal food and other stuff to live on, drink a lot of beer, do a lot of drugs because they know all the dealers and scrape cash from selling drugs or stuff, they have the mentality that "life is short, fuck it, why live under anybody's rules", theyre also usually nice people, but theyre slick as hell, they take punk to the absolute apex of its meaning and you catch them at only the most hardcore shows
