when did everybody become obsessed with being punk rock
when fall out boy got back together (?)
eVERYBODY NEEDS TO STOP. THIS MAKES ME WANT TO PUNCH WALLS- FUCK OFF URBAN OUTFITTERS AND FOREVER 21- CORPORATIONS LIKE THESE IS WHAT PUNKS FIGHT OFF- TAKE YOUR POSER BULL SHIT SOMEWHERE ELSE. uHG, sorry, but get educated about music history, before you go strutting in pre ripped clothes with the Crimson Ghost pre saftey pinned to the goddamn front of it.
I think what SO many people don’t understand is that punk isn’t a style of clothing, nor is it even a specific kind of music. The fact is, is that the DIY and punk scene has been going on well through the new millennium and is happening right now, right under everyone’s fucking noses, because that’s how punk works, and that’s how it always HAS worked. It’s called an underground scene for a reason. The old cliches of street punk and classic punk are long dead, but supposedly that’s the only punk people recognize. The punk scene had changed SO much since it began. Just check out the current Emo scene. Check out the Folk Punk scene. Check out the DIY indie scene. Check out the post-rock, post-punk, post-hardcore, math rock, pop punk, noise rock, shoegaze, hardcore, grindcore, skramz, or even fucking underground hip hop scene.
So many DIY artists are creating amazing things all on their own, and this is all happening at the same time as when all these kids are walking around in their fucking pre-patched, pre-studded jackets from Urban Outfitters. Go ahead, wear whatever the fuck you want, I don’t care, just keep in mind that theres nothing less punk than wearing a jacket sewn together by a bunch of underpaid labor worker children from East Asia, while you’re sitting in you’re room all day blogging on yo lazy ass. Patch your own clothes. Search for your own local DIY scene. If there isn’t one in your area, than START your own DIY scene.
Now go forth and be punk.
