What do you do that's punk? Give examples.
I reckon I'm slightly more punk than average but not that punk.
talking about how defining my generation were and how important it was when really nothing has changed.
I also like moaning about the current generation's inability to be exactly the same as my generation.
i'm definitely in the top 3 most punk people on DiS:
+ reading Dennis Cooper novels on Lowestoft beach
+ once I got arrested for punching a guy who beats his gf
+ bondage trousers
+ sent a scathing letter to the institute of physics after receiving an invite to the 'nuclear arms career fair'
+ don't use facebook
+ VAGINAL! CREAM! DAVIS!
+ don't vote (cos it legitimises an illegitimate system of rule)
wouldn't you like to know
the answer is "sexy" bondage trousers
The best kind
Haven't got round to restitching the hem of the left leg.
I rally against accepted fashion and coincidentally choose to dress like Sid Vicious (butter advert era) despite the ridicule this gets me.
I generally am irreverent and often nihilistic.
I believe myself to be a bit more important than I am. So maybe three punk.
-infinity punk points
Irreverence of anything. I don't think I've ever even listened to the sex pistols more than once because it was pretty clear they were fucking shit.
Also I have a telecaster which these days is edgy
with Chris Martin.
Have you seen his glow in the dark piano? You can't fake that
spunk that's in the process of being used
Take that, The Man.
so I guess quite a bit punk?
And I'm telling everyone.
Punk rock hero Frank Turner is my best man for the wedding.
So I think you'll find I'm pretty punk.
Punk level = 0
work in an office
don't wear a tie
no shoes on
to family days out at the park.
best new punk
Which is a couple of letters off being punk
put it this way, i'm definitely more punk than everyone else who has replied, bar fuckyeahdubstep
and fell soundly asleep half way through
Fucking love keeping it Crunk.
I was at a NoFX show. I was wearing a red shirt and some jeans. My mate Sean was wearing a jumper and cords. Some HARDCORE punk dude with a mohawk and a denim waistcoat came up to us and was like "UGH, I hate that their new stuff brings sell outs like you to their gigs"
And I said "What you chatting about mate, we're the punkest people here"
*snort* "Yeah, how'd you reckon that?"
"We're the only people here not dressed like everybody else"
check and mate. Still hands down the best thing I've ever said. Sean is pretty bored of me reminding him of it
because i am the definition of (original) emo.
The new fringe-heavy version is admittedly inaccessible to me.
schooled you all.
i like it when bands that make music that isn't punk rock say stuff like "our music isn't really any genre, it's just punk music". bands that do this:
the tough alliance
maher shalal hash baz
I literally hate it when bands do that, and bands vehemently denying that they're part of a genre that they clearly are.
I love both, but you've even got a BM band in your username ffs
of course, I'm not discounting a synthesis of the two (ergo a synthesis of life and death)
death is really punk. i wrote about it in a smoking thread on here and won't explain again
hence the synthesis - the active, oppositional seeking of death being an act of pure rebellion against l'esprit du temps
and i recall that post well - you make a fine case for smoking and one i may follow
fav punks from history:
and helped protect some kid who fell over in the pit basically xHxCx.
I'd be too embarrassed
got a letter published in kerrang about green day in 1996, pretty punk
i was at work earlier and it was just me and it's really sad when you have to do so much work cause they won't put another person on and are pushed that hard for so little money and its a pattern i've had in every job ever so i think i would be good at being angry about it publicly
and that I'd sort it out myself.
I find the idea of "being punk" ridiculous.
TAKE THAT, THE MAN.
Body in the Thames
Cementimental (not sure about this one any more tbh)
you can probably add gb and barleysugar to the list yeah
I reckon I might be the punkest who went to posh school tho ;)
mehodor is one of the least punk people i've ever come across, real or fictional
the least punk people:
that guy with a busted up face who was involved in the phonehacking scandal
like the opposite of punk
punk because he's so unpunk and yet engages with people who are
he's maybe 'singular', that might be better
is now one of the items of clothing I wear for painting.
extremely unpunk and even a little awkward.
THAT's the DiS we know and love
i only know one actual punk and she doesn't post on here
If you go by the original bands - middle class people shouting about anarchy from a position of comfort - we absolutely clock in as several thousand punk people. With that kind of army we could achieve very likely nothing.
I'm noise as fuck. People give me massive props but at the end of the day they don't listen to or even like me that much.
Call themselves punkers.
Loui's comment stands
haven't heard of them, for shame
it's an amazing album - give it a spin
But then I'd have to Punk you
Although yesterday I did ignore a barricade of crowd stewards telling me that I couldn't exit through them. "But my bike is behind you" I said as I strolled straight on through 8)
to a BMW who nearly knocked me off my bike. Pretty damn punk few minutes.
