To Be or not to be
,that is the question I ask of thee...fuck off!
I am going to
categorize what is meant to never be labeled because of the falseness
I see all around me...
The Degrees of Punk,
those who call themselves punk ..punk ,punk, punk!
First degree are the
drug addicts who chose to label themselves punk because in their eyes
punks are the misfits, the only group that will accept them.
Does punk mean doing drugs, fighting and letting your teeth rot out of
your head? Does it mean I have to be mean ,steal from people and
say "fuck u "every time someone looks at my green hair? Do I
present myself in a way that is offensive just for the offensive
factor? Is that punk?
The second degree is
the group we are all too familiar with lately, the fashionistas! They
are the ones who dress "punk" ,look "punk" think of it as the latest
trend and do it to be cool...the Avril Lavignes...those that kiss
corporate ass to get get discovered...Or the ones that think they know
what punk is supposed to sound like or are just poor musicians that
think because it sounds messy and shitty it should be punk? Is
The last group are the
ones who dig the music, think for themselves, follow no trend and
don't give a fuck what others think or do...dress how they want
because they want. Listen to what they want cuz they fucking
love the Ramones and the Ramones changed their lives. Is this
"Punk" has become
embraced into the mainstream and thus by being raped by "the man" has
become a caricature of itself....once you categorize the "anti",
you've accepted it...what is punk anymore? Is it history? a
movement? Are the old school punks just old people who don't
understand anymore? Is it good that the "new Punk" is "popular?
Wasn't it supposed to stay underground? Isn't it getting all
punk heard because it is more accepted? Is that good? Was
"punk" ever supposed to be popular? Who made all the rules?
Isn't it about no rules? Or is it just about the music.....
