Ok. i got this problem ive noticed it rarely but ever since ive actuly goten more into the hardcore scene ive noticed that all punks argue about what make you punk. what the fuck ACTULY make you punk. i thought it was all about being free, hanging out having fun with the people who will always be there for you.
i reckon its a dedication to the music, fashion and lifestyle. if your actually proud to be punk, its all about commitment really. true punk aint blink 182 though :/ or MCR like some emo wannabe punx think... >_>
btw, (that werent aimed on anyone here, just i know this girl that changes from scene to punk - skin -emo back to scene >_> and she pisses me off)
punk is a lifestyle, not a hairstyle.
If you can buy it at a mall, or if clear channel is involved, or it's on TV, I have the feeling it is a corporation romanticizing the most appealing parts about punk to sell it.
I believe that punk in an ideal form would be one that strives to break barriers, the status quo, and a way to say NO. (heh it rhymes). Also, good actions and compassion for human beings. DIY as well.
Idealogical differences tend to split up the scene or something like that.
but it just so happens that mohawks are awesome and we all have one. Derp
being a true punk means to not give a fuck about anything you do what you want when you want and dont let any pig barriers stop you break every barrier those pigs put up. being punks not about how tall your hawk is or how many patches you have on your jacket
being punk is about drinking beer, being a hypocrite, and spray painting stray dogs.
