Part of the problem is that punk wasn't a certain style of music. It was a movement. When punk was punk, punk bands were spread over a pretty broad spectrum of musical sound. It had to do with things such as non-conformity, anti-establishment, and originality among other issues. Over time the musical style of such bands as The Ramones, Pistols, and Minor Threat have come to be most people's definition of what punk music should sound like. To me, punk and punk music are now (and for quite some time) separate entities. And I don't consider punk music to be dead. At least not until Fugazi is completely forgotten.

this is not a fugazi thread ...

edited to add - damn amel i just want to jump in and throw in an offhand fugazi reference. my comment is more along the lines of the "this is not a fugazi t-shirt" lines than directed to your thread. i should have read your post completely prior to posting. (btw, smilies are not punk)

I don't think there is any "punk" band today that can resurrect the genre. Where have all those great bands gone?

i don't think punk ever died, or can die.

it's just the bands you listened to got old.

anyone who says punk died, 20-25+ years ago, are retarded.

GG ALLIN was the most PUNK thing ever, and he was going strong till '93.

Fugazi isn't a punk band anyway. The punk channel on Sirius plays them incessantly for some reason, Rollins Bands as well, also not a punk band. GG Allin was a douchebag. There are lots of bands and kids out there still going strong, new bands form everyday. Contrary to popular belief, they don't all sound like Blink 182 or Green Day (who I happen to like very much)

Going to be completely honest, Ash's cover of that song is better than the Buzzcocks' original.

I always took "punk" as an attitude/actions more than an actual "sound".

I'd consider the guys from The Jams/KLF being "punk" simply because they did whatever the hell they wanted and a lot of their actions went against the established "norm".

But it's all open to interpretation.
