Punk as fuck, fucked as you

What Punk ?

Punk is often equated with chaos, perpetuated by decadence, wasted youth and other delinquents of society. It is the bane of society and is filled with social scumbags that are better off dead. It is useless, worthless and pointless. But that is what 'they' want you to believe. 'They' could be anyone from regular folks, religious zealots, capitalist scum, the media and MTV.

Reality check. Real hardcore punkrock is community based, stemming from social to artistic activism. It is a reaction to a withering world. It is and could be neither utopia nor doom. Contrary to popular opinion, punk is indeed productive and has served to be a life-saving outlet for many who don’t quite belong anywhere else.

Punk represents ideas as much as art imitates life.
So is it all about chaos and disorder? You decide.
