Question of the Week…?

This question is entirely influenced by The Needle Drop, as is this entire segment. Here it is:

What does Punk Rock Mean to You? Examples?

Just to get the ball rolling, here’s what I think. Punk Rock means to me, freedom to act, sound, look, smell, or taste however you like. The elements of attitude, integrity, and passion are clearly displayed. Artists are NOTsigned to major labels, with exceptions to early “Punk” artists. Lastly, music that is cutting edge and/or distinctive. For modern examples, my favorite punk bands are The Black Lips, Jay Reatard, The King Khan & BBQ Show, No Age, Mika Miko, and Wavves.

Pleaseeeee Comment!

  1. There’s a spectrum of how “punk” people are, or so King Khan says, he proclaimed recently that Jay Reatard was “the punkest person” he ever met. I think he has similar ideas to mine but I won’t get into them just now, but bear in mind that this comment of his implies that as far as he is concerned, Reatard was more punk than the Black Lips are. With that, I am in full agreement.
