punk is a music genre a scene and a style.
its all about being yourself being independent inspiring people not following trends rockin it up standing up for what you believe in creating your own style.
its also a music genre thats about the same stuff.
has creative lyrics punk guitar riffs heavy/soft drum beats. is alternative different. and rocks!

punky is the complete opposite of preppy.
i am a punk.

Ummm, i'm afraid your wrong. Avril has always been a 'wannnabe.' her so called 'punk' music wasn't even in the category, a punk doesn't just change thier music culture and thier looks just instantly. She went from wannabe to girly. If i'm right punks aren't girly. I think you have the whole definition wrong. Not that I have anything against her, I actually like her songs. I'm sorry but I don't think you are punk at all, but if that is what you want to label yourself as, then go ahead.

no i was actually right plus avril is pop-punk to me and yes i am punk and i think you have the definition wrong because your one of the people that think theres a dress code for punk. i know theres not. if a punk wants to be a bit girly they can. its about being yourself and i thinky uor wrong. plus its also about protesting against unfairness and things like that.

You labeled yourself, plain and simple. If anyone else called themselves a punk you would think the same, whether they actually think they are or not. Plus its just ironic since your name is about avril lavigne. You still cant seem to grasp the concept, that punk is about politics, a punk is someone who is actively involved with these sorts of things. Punk music is what they make of it.
Punk isnt about "being yourself", thats what kids say who dont know what theyre talking about, because they have no actual definition and wont for years to come.

no,i was telling people what i was. i dont even care what people think of me. my name has nothing ot do with what i know punk is. i know its about politics i have stated i dont know how many times to you i am a fan of the political punk rock. such as anti-flag and no they`re not "borderline emo" they preach songs to people telling them to protest. plus the reason i dont think alot of people on here are true punks is because alot of you dont know that if your punk at all you make it what you feel. punk is something special and no it has not died. i think you have. because i dont even think you have a personality.
