don't be a poser!
you don't have to put safety pins and duct tape! you don't have to listen to good charlotte or sum 41! they are the biggest sell-outs in the entire punk world...
you can look at how punks dress by visiting websites...
a good example is oxbloodoi.com

You gotta be kidding me you guys are a big joke, punk is not about fashion or about music its about an ideal!  Punk is about rebelling against fasicts and controling government.  The website you put up there (oxbloodoi.com) promotes skinheads the biggest fasicts in history, if the person that posted that claims to be a punk he is going against everything punk stands for.  Anyway if you want to be a punk you have to belive in the idea of punk not the fashion or the music.

Read a book, be proactive, help others, thwart abusers, fight stereotyping, pick up a copy of Profane Existence. Sure the clothes add to the asthetic, but it's really about how you view the world and how you are willing to put in time to change the  repressive systems in our societies.

Punk is not about 'loud hard fast.' Its not about having a wild hairstyle or lots of black leather. Its about breaking away from the norm, doing something differently than its been done before...

Actually you cant 'become a punk' ... But heres a few things to know anyway:
Music.
Stop buying your music at the mall. When you buy your cd's at the mall, you're paying way too much for them, and the band you're hoping to support is getting only a teensy percent of the profit. Instead? Get online and buy them straight from the label.
Or, better yet, pick it up when you see them live. For some bands, the only money they get while touring is from the merchandise and cd's they sell.
Don't listen to music because you think you're supposed to. Just listen to what you like, be it punk, pop, country, goth, emo, whatever.
Support your local scene. Find bands, go to their shows, throw a few bucks at them. If nothing else, you can say you're oldskool when they make it big.
Carry on the 80's tradition: Make Mixtapes. Give them to friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, your dentist, whomever you please.
Clothes/Fashion.
Just stop trying. Wear what you like, wear what's comfortable. It doesn't matter. If you want to dye your hair blue, do it. If you want to wear spikes and plaid, do it. Just don't do it for the wrong reasons.
Quit paying for the labels. Don't pay an extra $60 because it says 'the gap' on it. Paying for quality makes sense. Paying for labels doesn't.
Etc.
Quit judging people. That means everyone, even cheerleader jock types, or the so-called enemy. Don't be hypocritical.
Stop buying anything at the mall. Support the mom and pop shops, and mail order. You'll get better stuff, and will be supporting the people who need it.
DIY stands for Do It Yourself. Make your own duct tape wallet and bondage pants. Use an old shirt and a sharpie to make a patch for your coat. Just don't buy it if you can make it yourself.
---MAINLY---
The entire punk idea is to think outside the box, to go against the flow. Think for yourself, and the rest will fall into place

I think whoever wants to be punk can try. But you also have to be yourself when doing this. You can't be punk just so you can be different from everyone else, that's not what it's all about. It's about doing it for yourself and having fun. So if you wish to be "punk" do it with to questions asked, you don't need answers.

this is so damn pointless, if your asking people how to be punk it means your following THEIR example, and not being yourself. Listen to whatever you want, and be who you want to be. If you tell people your punk, it means your not. Wait for this phase of "omg i wanna be a punk/skater" to go away, and get a life, dude.

the stereo type punk is only something skin deep, if you like the look, then ok, but what i could call a real "punk" is someone with that certain kind of attitude that their Born With. But really, don't shoot for any look that doesn't fit who you are inside, otherwise you'll be lying to yourself and especially others, which is lame and in the end makes you look stupid.

Hey the thing about punk isn't so much about knowledge or about what you wear or what you listen to the point of  punk is to shock to push the edges to be the way you want and push out against mass ideals and test the limits of society.  Be the way you want but looking for what clothes and what music to listen to(music is a big part of it though)  isn't going to make you a punk.  Watch out for posers GC Avril and don't always shop at hot topic or you'll be a wannabe

Sometimes i get so fake
I even gross myselfout
I cry myself to sleep
It's my lullaby
Sometimes i try to play my guitar
Just to feel that i am punk
I wann be hardcore
It makes me feel worthwhile

Is it enough to own a guitar
Is it enough to wear a tie
Somebody tell me i'm punk
And let me do devil horns
Is it enough to do devil horns
Somebody compliment my tie
I'd rather be anything but pop preppie

To walk on to the stage
With my guitar that i can't play
I want to hear the fans scream my name
Tell me that i'm punk
So copy me and wear a tie
Come on now copy me
Anything to make me feel punk

Is it enough to own a guitar
Is it enough to wear a tie
Somebody tell me i'm punk
And let me do devil horns
Somebody compliment my tie
I'd rather be anything but pop preppie

Flash devil horns with every picture
See that my wardrobe doesn't differ
If you look you will see
i'm just a posuer
Accident got me on stage
I use words that make no sense in song
I wanna be punk
Don't wanna call myself the pop music i play

Sometimes i get so gay
I even gross myselfout
I cry myself to sleep
It's my lullaby

Am i really punk?

Punk, is just being yourself.  If you spend your time trying to be different and punk, you end up just being a sell out.  How ever you want to dress, how ever you want to act, it doesn't really make you punk, unless you are yourself.  Also, stay consistent.  You can't be punk one day, and preppy the other, and actually be punk.

Still, having said what I have said, there are still some exceptions:

all white $80 shoes
anything that's in style

For me, being punk is making  "alterations" in my clothes (ripping down the back pockets and the useless stuff in my pants).  If something doesn't fit me, I just cut it.  I make my own shirts with sharpies, and I don't buy name brand merchandise, unless it's really cheap (Garage Sales Rule).

In all, I think I pretty much contradicted myself a few times here, but everything is just a big paradox, right?

Okay. This is sad. Why would anyone need ADVICE on how to become punk!?!? Hmm?! Your intentions may be noble I guess.To say "screw comformity! AND the goverment! And everyone else who stands in the way of me being me!" But punk can not be achieved by doing what others advice you to. I'm not punk. I'm not a poser. I'm not really anything at all! Well that's a lie. I am someone. I am Sam the Pancake Queen! Wanna know why? I make the best damn pancakes this side of IHOP. But that's beside the point. The point is you have asked the world a question and actually expected an enlightning answer in return. That's your first screw up. Don't ask people stupid questions like "How do I change my whole perspective on life, so I can fit an ideal image of punk-ness". You will be ridiculed harshly. And don't take these losers advice! Don't take my advice! And WHY in the hell would you WANT to be punk!? You are seriously NOT punk material if you have to ASK for help on becoming punk. Most people don't become punk, they just are punk. Simple. Well I'm lying. You can become punk, a lot of people do. But please try not to ask stupid questions, and not expect harsh ridicule in return.

AND TO THE REST OF YOU!!!!

Don't help this person!!!!! What's wrong with you!!! Don't HELP THEM BECOME SOMEONE THEIR NOT!!! Let their friends help/scorn them!!! Their probably just to afraid to ask any non-comformist around them for advice for fear of looking like a POSER or getting stuffed into a TRASHCAN!!! Besides! This thing is so old they have probably already grown out of this "I wanna be punk" stage. So there...um...nothing left to say... oh well. Back to making pancakes.

Okay, listen hear, PUNK is being who you are, Ignoring evil, rebelling, being different, and helping out.  It is a lie when people tell you your born PUNK, that's like saying you're born Christian, well sure you are, but you can change your religion, because Punk is a way of life, I like Avril Lavigne, I friggen idolize her, I don't think I am a sell out, and if you do that's your problem not mine.

You can't just dress up and say, "Look at me, I'm punk!" someone has already done that and her name is Avril! You can't just listen to punk bands and say you're punk, cuz that's just not right! Punk comes from the  inside. It's being yourself, and making a statement. It's being outside the box and going into the unaccepted corner with no fear. It also is standing up for what you think is right. Whether it be your favorite band and your right to listen to them, or standing up against the government, and expressing your own view. It's going the distance to see the band, and not waiting for the band to come to you. It's when you get a crappy ass job just so you can afford the concert tickets. It's staying true to your friends and not ditching them to become popular. It's a way of life, and if you haven't lived by it already, you can't change it. Thank you for your time

You can't just TELL someone to go against the flow. Like all these guys have said, it's gotta be natural; otherwise, it's not punk anymore. Listen, if someone came to me and asked how to be punk (what clothes, what earrings, what tatoos, etc.), I'd tell them to quit trying to be what their not; it's no longer punk. Cause it's defeating the whole purpose. If you want to be a punk to be "in" or to be "cool", then screw you, cause you've already gone against one of the major intents of punks; to be yourself, and to not care what others think about your choices and your preferences (whether they be political, fashion-wise, or any other). If you wanna be cool and fit in with OTHER people, then you're not exactly following those intents, now are you?

Punk, Goth, Prep... What the hell does it matter? Why on earth is everyone obsessed with these useless, useless labels that do none other but completely eradicate the concept of individuality? I'm sure everyone on this board was born with a brain (or else you'd not be able to type here, right?). Then how about USE it? These labels are so credible and consistent that not even two people could come up with the same definition for "one" concept. "Be yourself, do things you wouldn't normally do" was one of them. Hello! Isn't that an outright contradiction? "Hate on the government!" - I just want to thank that person who replied with a "apparently my dad's totally punk" to that one because it gave me good laugh. What takes the cake is the "black bracelets, black make up" bit though. In that case half the world's gone punk. There is no definition to punk. There used to be one when the movement emerged in 1974-79 but now it's dead. Yes. The pioneers died somewhere along the way and there's no way punk is coming back. GET OVER IT! Why don't you do something that REALLY reflects your generation and above all YOURSELF instead of digging up the things our close-to-ancestors believed in 30 years ago? The monarchy's dying, by the way - so no - you can't bang on about that either. Labeling is just an new form of ignorance. "Too Punk", "Not Punk enough", "poser" - and all this originating from a bunch of druggies who were really themselves and didn't have good old Johnny Rotten or Sid or f***ing Good Charlotte to look up to. That's the punk worthy of being called original. And now it's gone. So go - rack your brains and find who you REALLY are without having to add the word 'punk' at the end of your sentence. You'll thank me one day. Trust me.

to have thought about what you believe

To not care so much about what you look like that you spend hours getting dressed up (and yes, this includes extensive hair spiking and chain wearing)

To realize that the majority of people going along with something does not make it right
to be willing to change what seems wrong...

I like rock, i used to be a metal-head, but then i realized that being one sucks, just like it sucks to be  punk, gangsta, gothic etc.

Isn't the purpose of being punk to be different, but what about the large amount of punk kids around the world,
don't they dress the same way you do?, so maybe you're different to whoever that's not punk , but a exact copy of the pattern.

Cuz Gangsta head are different too, they are different to whoever that's not gangsta , you get it.

So, do you think that the creators of the punk movement were punk, no, they weren't, they were just singing the music they liked the way they liked, they weren't imitating anybody else like monkeys .

Punk kids makes me sick, they represent the war against capitalism, but they don't realize they have become a part of it,

Have you never being in a punk or gothic store, ha, everything is so expensive,

So,
don't be a punk, don't be punk

Alright, anyone who even mentioned "Hot Topic" as a reply to how to be hardcore punk is just  a mall whore.  

The music is most important.  You can wear whatever the hell you want, creepers, tight black jeans, braces, studs, whatever.  If someone asks you who the hell that band is on your shirt, you'd better know otherwise it's pretty damn obvious that you're a fraud.  Check out Sheer Terror, they're a favorite of mine.  

Along with the music comes dancing.  Learn how to skank or dance or what have you.  It's not that difficult, it's fun, and it'll earn you more scene points.

Have fun with the clothes you wear and what you listen to.  That's the whole point.  Just go out and party.

punk is a music scene. its not about individuality, or being yourself... its about a bunch of people who listen to the same type of music. and yes, there is fashion in the punk scene... not saying every punk dresses like a punk, and i'm not saying everyone who dresses punk is a punk... i'm simply saying that most kids in the punk scene dress alot alike. kind of the same way how when you hang out with a group of people you start to dress and act a little like them... you arent trying to copy... its just somthing you pick up by being around those people...

good charelotte, sum 41, blink 182, and all those guys arent punk bands. their more of a pop-rock.

punk's what you make of it...the whole idea of being 'punk' is to not give a damn about what everybody else says and thinks about you. so if you like wearing particular clothes, go ahead and wear them. there's 'punks' at my college but they just conform to the stereotypical ideal. punk's not about spray-painting anarchy signs everywhere or constantly getting drunk and beating people up, it's a pretty vague mindset: DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT FOR YOU! :o)

I think that being punk is seeing things in a new way. being your self. yeah, many people think that being punk means chains,buckles,straps. you can wear it if you like it, but it's really just being what you want to be. not slapping a label on your head.

My..my I'm surprised by all of you.  Out of pretty much all of you Siarra was the only one who answered the person's question.  Being a punk is about being different...about being your own person.  Yes, it also has to do with the music you listen to but that's not the whole picture...Safety Pins..Duct Tape...HT...a lot of these things are extra. And you know why some people dress that way? It's because they want to be different...So if you think being a punk is all about safety pins and duct tape shove it up your poser ass. But...if you want to know how to make everyone think you are a punk..email me..anti_social_chick2003@Yahoo.com

weirdnoises seems to have the best advise. There really is no way to "become punk". Except to be yourself and to try and be more politically and socially aware. Get involved in your community for causes you believe in. Listen to music you like. It doesn't matter what other people say, there will always be someone calling you a "poser". Don't let it get you down. When people say that, it is because they feel like there are certain standards that you have to live up to to be considered punk and that they have met those standards and are above you. Dress the way you like. A bit of advice, though, if you can find it somewhere else, don't shop at Hot Topic. The clothing there is way overpriced for the quality. You can find the same things on the company's websites for a lot less. Making your own clothes, or thrift store shopping also ensures that you can find/have inexpensive clothes that you like. Punk is not one certain ideology. There are vegan ans meat eaters, Republicans and Green Party members, people who are pro-choice and people who are pro-life. The most important thing is to stick by what you believe in. Don't wear clothes or listen to music just because you think, or someone told you that it is punk. Like what you like and be who you are.

Oh, and another thing, punk is not about being anti-government or anti-establishment. The government and the establishment are what puts food on your table, clothes on your back, and a roof over your head. It is about being informed. Make your own choices. Yes, some punks are anarchists, but some are not. Supporting your local mayor because he or she does a lot for the homeless in your town doesn't make you NOT punk, it makes you passionate about your views and morals. Like previously stated, just be yourself and believe in what you think is right.

So when u ask some one how to be a punk and tey tell u that u have to shop at a certian place or where a certian something then there the ferthest thing frome a punk. there just trying to follow someone elses path which is pointless cause time isnt long enough to follow someone else.

ok so i think that everyone for the most part has been wrong. close, but still wrong. if its even possible to become punk, the least you can do is learn some of the history behind it. when punk bands first came out, most people probably thought they sucked ass. in general, they couldnt sing and they couldnt play. it was what they had to say that got them the respect and in the end fame. what they did became punk though. thats why most people give the whole 'be yourself' crap. punks in the beginning didnt care if they were famous. they didnt care if they were killed. they played their songs because they wanted their voices to be heard. and they didnt necessarily hate the govt. the people running it, yes. but the us govt itself is actually one of the best kinds out there. personally i just think we need to get a whole new crew running it that actually cares about the people and not the money and other crap. as far as clothes go- it doesnt always matter. if you want to wear stretchy flares you bought on sale for $10 at foleys along with some vans or converse and some random tshirt (like those oldnavy year/flag shirts or something you got from doing something i dunno) than thats fine. if you want to wear a whole lot of black thats fine too. you can wear what you want if you really want to. just dont be one of those people that dress and act a certain way just to get attention but is really something else. thats what makes people mad and start calling you a poser.
basically, just try to learn the history of punks. the 80s were a good time. punk wont ever be the way it was truely meant to be again because those years and those people are dead.

How to be Punk in 3 easy Steps:

Step 1:  Rebel against all hypocrisy and conformity. Change hair, clothes and attitude to reflect this new rebellion. Tattoos, piercings and Drug and Alcohol addictions are optional.

Step 2: Watch SLC punk. Realize that punk itself is a hypocrisy and all non conformists look alike. Become disillusioned and consider rejoining mainstream society. Meditate on this dilemma for several weeks.

Step 3: Come to the realization that true punkhood rests in the knowledge that nothing is punk and therefore everything is punk. Allow this new found enlightenment to show you that everything you do is punk even when its not.

*Step 4: Do whatever you want.








*Real punks can't count.

Some good punk bands are:
The Sex pistols
The Clash
The Ramones
Youth Brigade
Minor Threat
Black Flag
The Misfits
The Circle Jerks
The Dead Kennedys

But don't listen to them because you think it'll make you punk, listen to them because you like the music and it means something to you. I asume you're asking about punk bands so you can listen to them not just pretend to.

Don't shop at Hot Topic. Punk is about going against the mainstream and Hot Topic is owned by THE GAP! It's so stupid that the people who shop there think that it'll make them different, but all they're really doing is dressing the same as all the other "different" people.

Most importantly just be yourself and don't do things just because you think it looks cool. There's this one girl at my school who had the anarchy symbol drawn all over her pants and my friends and I were talking about anarchy and her words were "Anarchy? Is that like some band?" Needless to say we all laughed.

you guys are stupid? punk is not fashion the most important thing of being a punk is being a rebel and an anarchist(that includes being an atheist), good Charlotte is the biggest poseur band ever, true punk are, the casualties, 7seconds, lower class brats, rancid etc, and skinheads re not fascist the media claim that skinheads are neonazis(some of them are) but most of them aren't, you have to think out of the box

I think this is pretty stupid, being "punk" or whatever you'd like to call it is not something you just "become" over night.  Basically, it's about nothing.  Punk is something different to anyone who knows anything.  I like "punk" bands and go to "punk" shows but it doesn't make me a punk, I am one because I do what I want, wear what I want, listen to what I want, etc. Be yourself! If you have a problem with that my email is bloodybritish79@cs.com and you can tell me about it there.

ok i dont kno whats wrong w/ u ppl. most of u r steriotypes and u suck. punk is about ur attitude. just bcuz u wear converse and tripp pants doesnt mean ur punk. but ur not automaticly a poser if u wear that kinda stuff and shop at hot topic tho.ur not a poser if thats what u like to wear. but punk isnt all about torn up thrift store clothes. wear whatever u want! u can wear tripp pants one day and abercrombie the next. if they call u a poser who cares. they probly dont kno.

I am agreeing with b yourself on this one because when your in here there is many different answers and many different people are saying well you have to do this and  you have to do that you cant "become punk" punk= be yourself whatever you do that you think is fun is punk you can run down the street scratching your ass saying i have poison ivy if thats your definition of punk then you go for it!!! and it kinda does have to do with the music you listen to if u go haul your ass around wearing punk clothing and singing some rap hip hop song you are a disgrace to all punk society! needless to say if u do your not punk because punks don't have the same interests with rap atleast i don't and my friends well bye hope i was answering your questions i tried!

ok.
first of all:
YOU CANNOT BECOME "PUNK" BY ASKING OTHER HOW TO.
+ why be someone you're not?
i mean. wearing chucks and a simple plan shirt is not punk.
punk is expressing yourself out of the box.
you don't see punks wearing etnies or dc's
because thats what everyone else wears.
and good charlotte is no punk. nor simple plan, sum 41, the donnas, ashlee simpson, gosh i could go on forever..
anyway.
real punk bands are.
rancid, the sex pitols, the casualties, the smiths, social d, and many more.
they might be main stream punk bands, but they're amazing.
and dont shop at hot topic.
it's for POSERS.
k? k.
dont buy named brand stuff.
go to good will..
it's cheaper anyway.
get some plaid pants.
and combat boots.
wear a jacket with patches all over it.
dye your hair pink, blue, orange, red, ect.
hand out with other punx.
dont judge people.
make your own patches.
get a mohawk-fauxhawk.
the more piercings the better.
wear skirts with ripped stockings.
drink.
smoke.
have sex.
the end.

being punk isnt about all that stuff up there. and i think some of u are confusing punks with hippies. but w/e punk is about unity. the better of all people. stopping oppression bringing people togther stoping raceism. stoping the control of currupt powers. and occationally gettin drunk off ur ass and havin as much fun in life as possible . cause u only get one life . and it should be spent helping others in need and having fun doing it.
o and here are a few good bands i like

oxymoron
blackflag
aus rotten
gg allin
subhumans
the unseen
the virus
cheap sex
lowerclass brats
stiff little fingers
dead kennedys
the germs
the misfits
sham 69
buzzcocks
and clit 45 to name a few.

and if u want a pic of me  [ which i dont know why anyone would heres a link

myspace.com/ilovegrievous


o annd just so u know i dont do the clothing to be cool. i just like makin my own.

p.s. dont EVER put ur mohawk up on a cruise. u WILL be asked by about 300 people to take a picture with them.

Wow... I think this hole thing is really dumb. Being punk is being who you are not trying to be it. Being punk is raging and going against the normal not fallowing all the dumb trends! and who ever said to listen to Good Charlet is so dumb... they are the biggest posers ever! every day they dress more and more punk but sound more and more like britany spears! Don't try to be punk be who you really are... Don't change yourself just because!

dude u guys like have problems. alright let me tell u this.

punk bands are in fact. the ramones, misfits,dead Kennedys, and the adicts. and thats like only 4 bands. theirs loads more punk music.
punk isn't no clothing style its like i guess a way of life. like anarchy against government, "anarchy" means a world without government, a world that is ruled by the people no higher power. and if u want to dress punk, well i guess i could tell you, what i see punks wear. get a denim jacket cut the sleeves off, put a few studs on the collar and on the shoulders, and put some of your favorite band patches on it. and NO blink 182, and NO goot charlotte, and NO sum 41, and NO bowling for soup. or any other rap bands or anything. and u better not put any punk band patches on just to be cool. u have to listen to them u have to acually like the bands!!! and for pants just find some old ripped up tight jeans. for shoes, just get some chuck taylors.

I don't think punk is all about dying you hair and being a rebel...its about being an individual and not caring what others think. I think you can become punk by just being unique. And if you shop at Hot topic then that fine! as long as you like the clothes and your not doing for someone else. Heck, I like hot topic but i don't shop there all the time be yourself and don't listen to what other people have to say about being punk because no one can really tell you. Punk is what you think it is.

1.it didn't start out that way
and
2.people in Britain or whatever thought of "individuals"as rebels so thats how it all started. ok I'm gonna shut up before i give you a history lesson ^_^ And one last thing......no one can tell you how to be punk, its what you think it is.

You know what who ever wanted to know the difference between punk and anarchy its that anarchy is trying to take over the goverment trying to bring chaos and the end of the world.If you listen to the casualties a real punk band or the unseen and you actually listened to their lyrics then you would know that punk is just trying to tell the goverment and us to treat everyone and ourselves with respect and for the upper class people to spend more money on the human soiety then on bombs and toys because war is not a game to mess with.Also punk is not about the way you look its about the way you feel about whats going on in the world today and how you reflect on it.the clothes and the music just tell people that you are trying to get that out that it doesn't matter what you look like but your voice speaks louder then you body expressions and you should remember that.

This is dumb. Lyk a lotta people have said, if ur asking "how to be punk" you'll just be copying what people say, not being urself and being individual, which is the whole thing behind the idea of punk.

Personally, i wear a couple black bracelets, black nailpolish, and a black choker. As for clothes, most of what i wear is black t shirts and jeans. I have just a few piercings (5) and i have never died my hair (its blonde) as for music, i listen to a wide range of stuff, from pop/punk to melodic death metal.

And if that doesn't fit someones definition of punk, then u know what?

I don't care.

I am who i am. If you don't think i am "punk enough" i don't care. I think i am punk, in that i do my own thing and am individual. And if i cared what you think i wouldn't be punk.

So be yourself. If you're not punk at heart, all the black leather in the world won't change it

I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS. and for those who say punk is supposed to be against fascism.... what are you talking about? NAZI PUNKS??/ yeh dead kennedys and the rest of the later 80s punk started to be against nazi punk, but that was after all of the white power nazi punk bands. original punk bands were heavily right wing.

ok listen ppl. punk is not juss clothes. well sure, thats apart of it, but its all about how u see things. punks see the world a lil differently than everyone else. its an attitude and how u act. but if u try to act punk...you'll try to hard..and you'll be a poser. punk is all about u. its all about w/e u want it to be. i no its not all pink lacy crap. but its not all black w/ pins. its about not matching black nail polish converse bracelets...etc. but dont let anyone tell u how to dress if u wanna b punk. u dress how u think punk is. and thats wut makes punk..punky. lol. thats y every punk is different. be who u wanna b.

Idiots. All of you. Apart from 'saturnal'. Hell yeah. He/She is definately right. Don't waste your f***ing time trying to be someone you're not. Just be you. Labels are for posers and wannabes. And NO ONE wants to be a poser. So STOP LYING TO YOURSELVES! If you think you're 'punk', whatever. If you know you're punk, whatever. Same goes for, 'emo', 'goth', 'skater'... The only label I'll ever agree with is CHAV. But, that's probably being hypocritical to myself. But so what? Stop telling people that Sum 41 and Good Charlotte are punk bands, too. They're not. They're all wannabes too. Get over it.
The point is, be individual -- don't try to be. Just be who you are, and do whatever the f*** you want to do.
Idiots.

I think I speak for all full fledged punks and some goths myself when i say this being a punk is not all about wearing black and chains and listening to Rob Zombie , bleeding through ,children of bodom but expressing your mind by what you think like the way god can confuse you or how you are connected to your inner demonic will doing it the old fashioned way fix up your skate shoes with duck tape not needle and thread and also your way to be different than others and your way to believe in an immense amount fantasy also your parents probably hate you but thats fine.

where i come from punk is about clothes. if you wear certain stuff,like everything black or whatever, then you're considered a punk. i agree with the people who say that punk is being yourself.take me, i wear jeans and my favorite t-shirts (harry potter shirts,old comfy play shirts, whatever, and a black jacket. i wear a bunch of bracelets, but i wear them because each one is special in it's own way.but that doesn't make me punk or anything. wear what you want, when you want, and how you wanna wear it.

And why in the hell would you want to ask some one how to be something you aren't. People have called me a punk because I have really long straight blond hair, and I always wear black makeup, and I have hot pink converse, and I occasionaly shop at hot topic. But I'm not. So call me a punk but I'm my own person. I don't need all of these labels to satisfy me. I am who I am. I'm just me.

Weidossis. OR whatever You make a great point.  I know that punk is a way of thinking and it is being your self wether its the norm or not. WHat gets me is how the norm is becoming punk and gothic. That is the fashion. so if all the kids are doing it to be like everyone else and paying 60 bucks for a skirt at hot topic is the same as being "the Enemy" and paying 60 bucks at abercrombie. So does that make them conformists of a non-conformast group. Plus when i went to school all the punks and gothics where rich little babies and only a few were doing it bc the wanted to and just didn't care what other ppl thought. There is punk in all of us. Some just choose to ignore it for the fear of being different.

Actually, you just kind of put yourself into it or you just are meant to be without deciding.  you do have to be against the stereotypical teen/pop culture in whatever country you are in.  You have to avoid self-proclaimed skater punks though; you'll see them in Pacific Sun or any other store that sells colorful clothes with skate labels on them and they normally have longer curly hair. The girls are the same, but they normally dye their hair a reddish color or highlight it.  DON'T TRUST ANYONE WHO WEARS SKATE LOGOS UNLESS THEY ARE ACTUALLY SPONSORED!!  Punks also shouldn't have wealthy parents or priveleges due to wealthiness (that leads you to poser punks and most emos).  The way you dress doesn't really matter, believe it or not, because the "traditional dress" has been adopted by the pop-culture (in the USA in particular); just dress differently, it's best to collaborate and make your own outfits.

As for music, I wouldn't really want to go near anything that is considered punk in which is real mainstream at the moment (examples: Green Day, CKY, Good Charlotte, Franz-Ferdinand), especially if you don't know about them (I liked Green Day before they real popular).  Don't confuse mainstream emo or hardcore or metal with punk, this includes bands like Fall Out Boy (emo-pop), Simple Plan (emo-pop), Taking Back Sunday (hardcore), The Used (emo), My Chemical Romance (hardcore, but they kind of changed), Slipknot (metal), System of a Down (metal).  Check to see if the content is punk (compare "my life sucks cause I can't buy new clothing, so I'm your bloody valentine" to something like "There is no future for this world full of idiots").  You shouldn't use rock bands/skateboarders/athletes as role models for your personality instead of your music, because a true punk wouldn't look up to anybody, because they would look down on everybody.  But some bands I listen to that I would reccomend are The Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, Descedents, Black Flag, and Rise Against.  Punk music never had good production qualities, so don't be disappointed with some crappy sounding punk CDs.  

ONE BIG NONO: DO NOT LABEL YOURSELF TO ANYBODY, BECAUSE THAT'LL PUT YOU ON THE POSER WAGON FASTER THAN ANYTHING.

Technically, MOST bands post 1995 aren't considered punk rock music, because it began to break out into the mainstream quite shortly afterwards.  Any bands formed afterwards are normally pop-punk, popular-emo, hardcore or post-hardcore.  And again, anything that becomes popular is NOT considered punk in status, but still in Musical style, unless they completely change in affect to the mainstream (AKA: Green Day).  And, in the context of school society, punks were treated just about as well as lesbians and queers are treated (HAHA!  Screw the homosexuals!).  You probably will see a bunch of posers at the Warped Tour, considering a bunch of mainstream bands that aren't even punk are there (Like My Chemical Romance, Good Charlotte, and SLipknot);recently, alot of TRUE punks are normal people, they don't have the style, but to the way the word punk has been emphasized in today's youth culture it's been pushed to just being a "talk, but no action" type of thing.  I mean really, have you every seen some yuppie girl in a Billibong shirt with dyed hair wearing a tie want purposely to knock over a bunch of junk and embarrass herself in public?  I don't think so.
THE TRUE MEANING OF "PUNK" IN THE ERA OF 2000-NOW ARE:
*Normal teens
*They don't skate (since that in the 'in thing')
*They play in the school band (since that is not cool)
*They are outcasts or geeky
*They are very skilled in art
*They listen to old music (Beatles, some classic punk bands, swing music, classical, alot of old stuff)  
*Not fashionable
*They are normally outcasts since they are accused of being psychotic or too odd to be cool (they pick their nose in class, they bring their homework in plastic bags sealed with superglue, etc.)
*They get good grades (since that is not cool anymore)
*and they are treated like trash by alot of posers and preps (like getting food dumped on, being pushed into lockers, getting their bags stolen and whatnot)

Unfortunately, that's what the meaning of true punk has been rendered to.
The artificial meaning of punk in this era is:
*You have to like bands with guys that have alot of tattoos and piercings.
*You must dye your hair
*You must shop at Pac Sun, Hot Topic, or Claire's
*You must be popular
*You must hate your life
*Any bands that have guitars are punk (Slipknot is a f***ing mainstream rock band you idiots and so is Green Day!)
*Merging emo is punk
*Having to resent Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson, and Avril Lavnige (who the heck cares)
*Any emos, metalheads, or posers are considered punk
*They worship Bam Margera, Tony Hawk, Billie Joe Armstrong, Joel Madden, etc.

Yes this does sound sad, but that's what happened to punk as time went on.  And in case any of these posers haven't noticed, most of the original punk dudes are old 60 year old fat guys.  

PS:  I am NOT punk, goth, or emo; I just research alot.

This is getting confusing.  Some of you are saying, "Wear what you want.  Listen to what you want.  Be yourself.  Then you're a punk."  Well, I wear, listen to, and do what I like, and I am not a punk, so there has to be more to it than that.  Just a thought.

But really, as long as you feel comfortable with who you are, it doesn't matter whether you're punk, goth, or prep.  I'm not sure that I fit into any classification or stereotype, and that's fine with me.  For me, it's all about who I am, and not what cultural cubby hole you can fit me in.

My advice: be who you really are, and the rest doesn't matter.

You guys are all lame
You have no idea what punk is
And it's not about how you dress
or what music you listen to
It's about how you feel about the world
and the government and everything in your life
It's about how you react to every situation
It's not about chaos or destruction
It's not about any of that.
It's only about how you think
So stop saying to put safty pins and duck tape everywhere
and wear mainly black and pink
That's all the mainstream punk
and true punk
Is a true punk
and doesn't post things on the internet
about how to be one
It's not something that people can just tell you
You learn it on your own
So go get a life
and put in
a Simple Plan CD
because they aren't punk
and neither are blink 182
sum 41 or
good charolet
or any of those queer bands
they are all wanna be'sjust like you

     Being punk is to be different. To have your own Style wether its cool or something other people would'nt wear if it was the last thing on earth. Punk is about not caring if The most popular girl in school disses your shoes. Punk is about being yourself.

     Sure, to get truly noted and considered as a prep black red and dark pink and purple are the way to go along with studs and ripped pants. But be warned. If this is taken to far you will be considered goth.

    Punk is about knowing who you are and not being ashamed for other people to know too. It is about being Different and reading things No one else will read. Eat something no one else will. Become a vegetarian because no one else is. Stop acting all happy and relize that what can go wrong will go wrong when no one else does.Punk is about Being you because no one else can be.

noone can be "punk" the word punk is not a descriptive term based on some idealsm of how to be . that would be anarchy you are thinkin about or rebellion .not all punks are anarchists or rebels. you can only be A punk , like being  A bum . noone goes around saying  im bum they say i am A bum so you would have to say im being A punk which is simply a synonym for hoodlum or hooligan so you wouldnt say im being hoodlum ,you would say i being  A hoodlum the word punk more literally means a good for nothing. real punks are jus street toughs basically and thats what it has always been . if you listen to real punk rock  you would know this . try listening to anti nowhere league or the business or blitz or black flag even .its all about the struggle of the underdog and fighting in the streets for justice . you people need to listen a little closer to what punks say in there music and try to understand where they are coming from

I can't believe I'm answering this. Punk is old slang for a prostitute or someone who enjoys anal sex. Punk as a musical genre 'died' with the late seventies. If you are interested in appreciating it from a scholarly point of view, pick up Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain. You can go from there.

O.k. you all sure have some interesting opinions about what punk is... Punk is an attitude. Punk is not caring about how people see you. Punk is music. If you don't like the music and you don't have the attitude you aren't punk. Fashion only has a little bit to do with it. If you dress punk, but you don't like the music you are trying to be something you aren't. But MOSTLY, PUNK IS BEING UNIQUE and NOT a photo-copy of eveyone else.

You guys really need to look up some info or something. Punk isn't about the clothes and the music per se. You can't just "be" punk. Its something that happens. Its a way of thinking and a lifestyle. If you aren't punk then asking people how to be one isn't gonna change anything, if you are just following what other people say then you are no better than the other mindless sheep that punks fight against. Just do what you want, wear what you want, listen to what you want but support the scene and you're a true punk in my opinion....but who am I to judge whats true and poseur?

you are all fags. punk isn't about the fashion. it's about the music. and rebelling against the normal. and Good Charlotte and Sum 41 are not 'good punk bands'. Listen to something reall and not sold out, like The Voids, The Germs, 45 Grave, The Exploited. And you can't learn to be a punk, you just are, or you aren't.

don't listen to anyone here that tells you that you need saftey pins and all of that stuff to be punk. if your just trying to get in on the punk trend that is going around now, my advice is to not do it. being punk is about doing whatever you want to do, not listening to other people. it's like a term of contempt. don't dress the way people want you to, dress the way you want to. same thing with music. you shouldn't care at all if it's going against social standards or whatever. punk is about being a "rebel" and doing what you want. it's about music. 3 bands you need to check out: the adicts, black flag, sex pistols. they are punk. it's all about havin fun.

ok... if you always hated the decisions the government made
or always hated the rich for exploiting your poor ass
or listened to music that you actually like
or agreed with ideals like communism rather than the corrupt system of capitalism
THEN YOU'RE PUNK

but if you are trying to BE punk now, by shopping, and getting new music and clothes then its impossible, unless you meet people that really enlightens you on important subjects, or if you kinda just ease on into it natually. i never tried to be punk, but i chill with a big group of punks. its cause were all ourselves. be yourself, and do what makes you comfortable.

you guys seriously need to get a life. i wasted like 40 minutes of my life reading this bull sh!t. punk isn't something you can wake up one day and decide you want to be. im called punk because i happen to like wearing bright colored skirts with neon miss matched knee high socks, and shirts with band names on them.

if you're trying to fit in with a group of people that happen to be more popular then you, in the hopes of becoming more popular, then i hope you choke and die on a grape or a piece of toast. stop trying to fit in with the more popular people.

be yourself, because trying to be someone else isn't going to make you new friends, and you could very well lose the ones you have now. not everyone is going to like you. so be yourself, at least then you can be comfortable and like yourself for who you are. not who you're pretending to be.

I don't consider myself punk. I just listen to what I want because I can, and that just happens to be like very mild punk rock. There are some people who are posers, and some people who are just a little of this and a little of that and labels don't apply. I'm black and I mainly listen to VERY MILD punk rock. I don't listen to labels. And when i say very mild I'm talikng bout Panic! At the Disco and Cute is What we Aim for. I guess if labels mattered you would call that emo? I dunno. I think this whole thing is very stupid. I also think that you people who are saying "You can't be punk, you'll never be punk" are the biggest idiots on the planet. People can be whatever they want. If they like the music and want to dress the way they feel then that's fine. If they like the idea of being rebellious and protesting the government, that's fine. Hasn't anyone told you people that labels don't matter.

first of all punk these days is so generalized and its sucks. Punk is not a fashion it's a lifestyle. You have to be born to rebel against anything thats suppressing you and wear what you want and dont listen to anybody, do it your own way.

Listen to punk music and understand the lyrics.

If you're not punk dont change who you are just to be considered "punk" then you just become a poser like any other prep in this world.

punk is  a lifestyle you feel it and live it theres a style to the lifestyle its simple and not that hard it develops over time buy some pants and band shirts or make your own shirts add stuff to them anything you want write on your stuff expirement with your hair you dont have to have a mohawk either listen to some good punk music
standout read up on stuff that is happenign and develop your own opinions punk is all about being an individual get a piercing or tattoo look at different people in punk bands and get ideas of what you can do with your own clothing you dont have to make your appearance extreme just do things until your comfortable with yourself and how you look Take pride in the bands that you love do whatever you want and live for yourself

Punk isn't a style.  it's just something.  whatever you do don't go around saying your punk. you'll get beat up.  a ton.  I'm labeled as a punk except by the people that know me.  I wear what i like.  I listen to punk rock, but not poser crap like good charlotte like some of you think is punk.  The ramones, The clash, etc.  that's punk.  not your crap that's all screaming.  

don't just go punk just cause you think it's cool.  you ideals are what makes you punk.  if you don't belive in the ideals then wearing the style is lame.  it's like a guy carrying around a skateboard that can't skate.  it's lame.  dont' be lame.  please

Well, i think that wanting to be punk is pathetic. Stop trying to be some one your not and just be your self. And any way being a punk is bad, all they do is, do drugs, have sex, smoke, and then just rock out all night. Plus, the tattoo's, when u get old like 80 if u live that long, u would look a fool with all the tattoo's. i mean saggy skin with inc all over it. Really doesn'tlook right at all. Plus drugs, if u keep that bull s*** up sooner or later u gonna get cancer or die from it. So, the point is, don't try to be bad and what not, just be your self.Ecspailly if your good, cos if you go out there trying to fit in the world will chew u up and spit u out like gum, figure of speech. And don't let shallow jerks bring u down, there no body. Skip them and go on with your life.

Punk has nothing to do with your fashion or what kind of music you listen to.  Punk is an attitude, or a mindset.  Punk is that rebellious, nihilistic attitude.  It doesn't matter what kind of shoes you have or what the color of your hair is or what kind of music you listen to.  You can be punk and listen to rap.  You can be punk and listen to Good Charlotte.  You can be punk and listen to Celine Dion.  It doesn't matter, so long as you have the right attitude.

To be a real punk you don't have to dress like them or whatever, just try to be yourself. Because I believe being a punk is not how you dress up and how you look like and even on what music are you listening to but being a punk is all about how you respect other people and being humble. Look at the punk bands we are the one who are telling that blink182, new found glory, simple plan and etc. we are saying that they are punks, but they don't tell themselves or the people that they are punks you know what I mean, when you buy their albums the genre says alternative rock but not punk. But they are punk coz it's all about attitudes you know what i'm saying? For me that's the real punk other people say you are a punk but not yourself and people who call other people a poser are posers themselves. But if you want other people to know that you are into a punk world, you can wear a belt with the metal pins, the one with a knuckle thing, wear a chuck taylor or vans or skating shoes like DC shoe etc.. if you are more into nike that's fine go and check journeys shoe store they have nike sneakers that have a punkish style. Pants not too wide loose is ok but not the drum pants and oversize same in T-shirt mostly fit clothes but normal fit is ok, not too wide is cool and basically the brands it's better not to wear a hip hop brand but it doesn't matter just wear comfortable if you are comfortable with wide thats fine just be yourself and ofcourse respect other people it doesn't matter is you listen to hip hop sometime or dress like ghetto it's all good just respect other people and peoples opinion. You have to be an open minded like travis barker he looks like a punk the mohawk and all that stuff but he plays drum with other artists not just with punk band but almost wih everybody like hip hop and stuffs but it's all good people asked him about it and what he said was "I am a musician i play almost everything i even listen more on beat music like R n B's this is my profession and i learn lots of things playing different varieties of music and different artists" That's the real punk, he has his own goal and belief. just be yourself.. that's so punk rock!

u need plaid pants with zippers and stuff on them (even though the zippers are for nothing),tight shirts with bands on them such as The Casualties,Sex Pistols,The Ramones,The Clash,Misfits,The Exploited,etc.

u have to be with anarchy (screw the government!!!!!!!!!!)

u also need a studded leather jacket with band patches on it and u need a studded belt

the hair style is either liberty spikes (that's what i have),Mohawks (do not get a stupid fohawk),or you can get a punk shag (which that is what the Sex Pistols have)and the hair needs to be died (my liberty spikes are black)

and forget Hot Topic unless you are buying a punk shirt there or plaid pants,because you need to start getting your stuff at thrift shops,punk stores my favorite is x20 (but i can't actually go there because it is in Quebec,but i go to there website www.x20.com

You guys are lame as hell...arguing over what is punk. You just cant be like "Hey I am going to be punk today!"  Cant just give you a checklist and then be like "hey now Im punk, hooray!"  Its just something that your into, like part of your personality, the idea of it, the music, the fashion.  There are no guide lines to being a punk.  Kinda goes against everything doesn't it?

Hey most of you people say that like everyone here is a poser but I see that sometimes the same person who says so in so is a poser is saying not to label people. So I say don't even lable people as a poser. Im not saying Iam punk, I never said I was punk but I have had people just come up to me and call me a punk. I don't try to be one I just stand up for what I believe in and do what I believe is the right thing to do. Yes I am parshly anti government and I do shop at hot topic somtimes but I also shop at american eagle sometimes and places like that. So for you people who say they don't like labeling yet call people posers go ahead and call me a poser if you like I could care less. Thats all I have to say for now.

I've been reading some of these and most have hit the nail on the head. Your asking how to be punk? Punk cant be engineered!
you have to get up in the morning and with out thinking put on some Rancid on your boom-box, put on your clothes and start a roit!

Punk stands for 'people under new knowladge'
Thats new knowladge not the same old three chord riffs and tacky stereotypes.
Were all part of a social ladder, and punks dont care weither thier on the top or on the bottom, as long as we got some beer and friends were happy.
So if you really want some advise to live by: dont force yourself into becoming something your not, just wear, listnen and do what you like. That my friend is punk ideals.

Being punk means you go against the norm..against rules..against authority.
Not all punks dress alike, or even listen to the same music; we all have one thing in common: Don't fall into fads.
If we wanted to be like everyone else then we would just do that, but seeing outside the box allows you to see the meaning of life.

You have to defy and disrespect your authoritys, and not listen to anything anyone says.

See, your failing punk 101 allready by listening to everything the people on the FAQ say.

Listen, dont try to be punk. Try and be yourself for a change. You might end up liking what you see in the mirror. And if you dont, go get some help. Find someone to boost your self confidence.

You can get a better idea about the 'punk lifestyle/state of mind' by listening to the punk music from the 70's. do a little research on these groups: Subhumans, Misfits(while Glenn Danzig was still with them), Rudimentary Peni(My fave) and x-ray specs. this is just a start. feel free to ask me any questions about these groups and/or anything else. jane4all2enjoy@yahoo

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha some people are so simple minded
..................WOW.................
where should i even begin?...   okay well first of all i dont understand why someone would want to stereotypically label yourself, and even worse... pose to be what your not. the whole ideal of 'punk rock' was the fact that you think for yourselves, and dont care to be what your not.   punkrock is a state of mind wich allows one to step out of reality, and just look. take the time to find who you really are before you rush on into attempting to label yourself. why would you want to at all? wouldnt you much rather be yourself? would you die for something your morals went against? then y would you pretend to have 'punk' morals if punk isnt even there? it can not die, because it was never born..now, why is it you want to be punk? is it because supposedily punk is a fashion statement, wich embrasses individuality? well apperently not, because fashion has nothing to do with rebellion. rebellion comes from within... its not something that people should do for popularity points... if everyone was punkrock, rebelling against conformists, then there would be no one to rebell against? and punkrock would indeed die--no--fade away. now... you say you want to be a punkrocker and rebell against the government? well, do you even know what exactally capitalism is?-- capitalism is a form of economicail, industrial, and socail orgenization of socioty- involving ownership, controll, and direction of preduction in privatley owned buisness orginisations...   and do u even know what anarchy is? anarchy is equallity, and equallity is peace. now i dont know about you, but i would much rather be a wise 15yr old girl that i am and call myself angela then to label myself like the rest of the conformests of this modern deccaying civilisation. even tho i listen to 'dead kennedys', subhumans, the exploited, the crass... and all that punkrock music- i still referr to myself as me, not punk. think about that. now think about YOU

LOL, You're being a fu**ing tard. Stop asking yourself what you want to be and start asking yourself who you are*. If you do what you* actually like* to do and wear what you* actually like* to wear, then you're not going to fit in any mold. People will stereotype you no matter what, so why give them more amo and even more cause by dressing to fit a certain one? People claim not to like stereotypes, but they are dressing to get them. If you like something, go with it and throw people a new challenge; challenge them to know you* and not just your "safety pins."  Also, stop asking other people what kind of music you're supposed* to like. Listen to all kinds of music and decide for yourself. You'll end up with friends you actually like and who like you* if you do this stuff. I don't hate punk clothing or "goth" clothing. I have shopped at Hot Topic even though people have said it's too main stream and even "poser," but I like some of their stuff. I also shop at Walmart. I have also shopped at Filenes before it was Macy's. Btw, personally, I think Good Charlotte is freakin' candy syrup, cool whip punk if I would even DARE place it under the punk label. I like safety pins too. : p If you are interested in making stuff from duck tape, there are many free patterns on the net and some books on it too I hear.

There is a common misconception about punk going around on this board and it's making me sick. Punks do not steal or rob, we are not violent and we do not hate. Sure, we may not be too fond of so called 'preps' and 'jocks', we may not appreciate their ideals, but that doesn't mean we hate them. Punks respect all people and all living things. Punk is not about dressing a certain way, though there is a typical style that is 'common' among us. You can shop at name-brand stores but it's better to shop at places like Goodwill and Salvation Army because it supports people in need. That is what Punks are for. They are for the rights of indigenous people, for people who are constantly discriminated against. Punks stand up for what they believe in, they are pro-Earth. We are /for/ the common people, the middle-class and the lower-class. Chains, duct tape, black...it's not necessary at all. I for one just like wearing rolled up jeans and a band-shirt or a shirt with a slogan or saying or Alice in Wonderland and a pair of comfy Chuck's. That doesn't make me punk though, that's just what I /like/ wearing. It's comfortable. You don't /have/ to listen to punk music, but that's how the culture developed. It was born from music. You can listen to other stuff though. I for one can't listen to Punk Rock too often. It's good music, but I like other music better. The only reason that punks are considered Anti-government is because a lot of laws do not help the common people. A lot of laws in our corrupted country benefit mostly the wealthy. However, I will say that you don't have to think that way, but it's a major part of the culture. You can't just become punk. You're either born punk or you are 'enlightened'. Meaning, you're not into it for the fashion, it's based on what you believe and the want to be an individual.

Every last one of you has no clue what you're talking about.  I think you're all on acid. People suck, ecspecially the kind that think they actually know what they're talking about.  Just listen to your selves none of you are making sense.  And all of you dumbasses are stereotyping.  Go watch Go Diego Go or something and shove a pole up your ass.

I'd just say punk is being different. Don't buy things because they are "cool" and everybody has them. Don't listen to music that everybody listens to because it is new and in, listen to 80's stuff if you want to, just be different than the rest of the crowd.

To be punk you just have to learn more about it.You do not have to be like all the other punk people, but you definitley have to show your punk by listening to maybe avril lavigne,gwen satefani and mostly XL106.7. Just be yourself and do not let gansta people make fun of you.

Punk means being yourself,it's a state of mind.True "punks" don't do it for the fashion or music.They're not low lives either that's the idealogy that punks give themselves and what other people think about them to(stereotype).
