No Longer "Punk As Fuck"


Recommended Posts

“I also bought a steel chain and a chunky little padlock and started to wear that around my neck. It was just like the one worn by Sid Vicious, the bass player in the Sex Pistols. I was determined to carry that torch—the punk-rock torch”


 

Debbie never was or understood Punk from the start. My Grandmother wearing a plastic bag on her head to keep the rain off her hairdo walking from the car to church was more Punk than this fuck will ever be.

Punk had it's moments mostly at the begining of it's existence. 

 

20 years ago,

Rock N Roll desperately  needed some new style that was similar to Punk at least when came to Nihlism, and the angry spotlight being pointed at a failed society and it's corrupt norms. 

- this never happened 

RnR died instead.

 

Muff and everyone in legacy bands are riding a dead horse frantically picking up some of what will be the last dollars spent on RnR Bands.

What bands are punk as fuck?

 

I know the Sex Pistols are highly regarded in punk influence but I think they sucked ass. Earlier Green Day built upon punk roots and made it better. I mean they got old and shit later, but every band does.

Punk isnt a musical style, a haircut or fashion- its a mentality.

A band like GWAR has 1000 times the "PUNK" credibility than most any modern "punk" band.

 

 

 

 

Lydon said it was about being an individual, but it was also about not being conformist which is the same thing, but  is clearer. So while pop was all nice lovey dovey, or rock was all bloated and self important the sound of punk had to be loud, fast and aggressive. And that stuck as a musical style. 
 

But once the mainstream co opted this music it became more punk to do something else. Punk rock sense like a concession to more accepted music like rock. Rock with attitude. 
 

In jail the weak kid they passed around was the punk. So that weak sickly nasty kid is what Lydon projected. An outcast underdog is a stereotype. 
 

I suppose that leads to a political undercurrent, you can't be Trump and be a punk. It has to be in opposition to authority. 
 

That's why bands that claim to be punk have trouble when they sell 100m records and are swimming in pools of caviar. They can throw a tantrum and piss in the pool. 
 

When rebellion is corporation owned is it more punk to be an accountant? Being a punk is career move now.

i believe there are 3 forms of punk:

 

- the musical form made up of monotonous guitar riff and no guitar solos (the ramones)

- the careless, rule ignoring, do as you please and don't care what anyone else thinks attitude (Ragnar and his goats)

- the third one, the one Duff falls under: the little faggot bitch
