Punk isn't just a type of music (and blink 182 isn't it) but more like a lifestyle. It's being clear on what you believe in and standing up for it. It means doing things yourself (diy) and not caring what others are going to say about. The greatest representation of this in music I think is nofx. Not because of the genre they play, but more because of the attitude they take towards what they sing about and the energy they use to convey that message. Nofx really doesn't care if you like their cds or not. They are more concerned with getting what they want to say out there, and not really caring if you care. That to me is punk rock.

No no no, it's not that it's "not just a type of music, it's a lifestyle" - there's Punk the music and Punk the lifestyle - two different things. I stopped being Punk-the-lifestyle awhile ago, but I still like the music. Thus, I am not Punk-the-lifestyle, but I do enjoy Punk-the-music.

Yeah, i definitly agree with you that the music and the lifestyle are totally different things. I was just trying to point out to one of the earier post what the original idea of the whole punk movement was. Back when the bands played and lived punk rock...ex: Reagan Youth, Public Enemy, Anti-Flag, NOFX. And i'm also with you that I don't live the punk lifestyle, but do enjoy the music. Just wanted to clear that all up.

I agree with the above. Some things anger me though, alot of people that listen to punk nowadays dont know what the heck is going on in politics and alot of punk is politically oriented. I dont get it... Maybe someone could inform me.

Banonbush i agree with you, and I love NOFX. The thing is if u listen to their lyrics, most of the time it sounds stupid, but if u take the timeto listen carefully, u'll understand the meaning. Also, lots of people think punk lyrics are just crap, but this couldn't be further from the truth (in MOST cases). Take "the bag" for example:
"Endless evenings of non-exist
Are getting shorter, monotonous
Like an intruder, I belong outside
Although I find myself right back
The same place I was before
Saying things I'd say once more
There's no reason for me to be here, no
I feel so lonesome, surrounded by friends
Who are talking about me, saying things I could care less about
This dialogue is without
Worth, content, significance"
My point is, that I believe that NOFX just awesome.LOL
No really, and also that punk lyrics are usually pretty intelligent thoughts.
