PUNK IS DEAD if it cannot articulate any stance that is markedly different from the mainstream-approved stance on the same issue.

PUNK IS DEAD if the politics of this movement exactly mirror those of the most popular mainstream politicians.

PUNK IS DEAD if it no longer has a place for a young person who wants to spray paint the walls, to knock things down, to create hell and get away with it.

PUNK IS DEAD if it rejects Chaos in favor of being the enforcers of a moral code.

PUNK IS DEAD if the things Punks once did to provoke or to shock those with mainstream cultural norms, now elicit the same reactions from "Punks," as from church leaders.

PUNK IS DEAD if it puts more emphasis on censoring artists, than on an ethos of "say what you want to say."

PUNK IS DEAD if its aesthetic output cannot offer any countersignal to narcissistic social media posts.

PUNK IS DEAD if every "underground" show is on YouTube and Instagram before the show even ends.

PUNK IS DEAD if it no longer has any appeal to teenagers who are angry at the world and are eager to tell people that.

PUNK IS DEAD if it is a youth subculture that is dominated by sets of rules and morals dicated by people who got involved when they were already adults.

PUNK IS DEAD if the wellspring of credibility is your gender, skin color, or sexual orientation, rather than your sincerity, experience, dedication and committment.

PUNK IS DEAD if having any expectation whatsoever of others aligned with this movement, is condemned as "elitist."

PUNK IS DEAD if the genitalia of a band's members are more important than the music they make.

But....

PUNK LIVES as long as there is one person left alive who doesn't care what others think. Who doesn't care if the cool kids don't want to play with their band. Who has the courage to go against the mainstream, to speak their mind, to engage with people outside of their comfort zones and expose the dangerous truths.

PUNK LIVES when it is bold enough, audacious enough, underground enough, to appeal to Generation Z, the way it appealed to Generation X.

PUNK LIVES when it is counter-culture, anti-social, and a place for outcasts.

PUNK LIVES... IF YOU HAVE THE GUTS.

God that's so lame. The worst thing about punk is people talking about it. Plus who in this day and age actually gets shocked by a grown adult with a mohawk and a cheap guitar singing about how they do drugs and get drunk because they're punk? I mean fine if you actually enjoy that kind of music awesome, but don't act like you're the spearhead of some meaningful movement. That shit isn't shocking, it's basically cosplay. Especially when there are bands like Dystopia and Crossed Out who convey themes of isolation, alienation, substance abuse, etc, without all the stupid "Wow look at me, I just sniffed glue and threw up on myself and don't care what you think, but you're shocked right?" crap.

I know a few people like this. Like 40-year-old punks who think they're part of a cutting edge social movement. But they're like ex or current crackheads who still get wasted on cheap beer and liquor and post on social media about how punk got them through their withdrawals.

There is nothing funnier to me than a "punk" who doesnt like other people telling them how to live but has no problem telling those same people the way they live their own lives is wrong.

Yeah it's not scary or shocking to me in any way. I'm no stranger to substance abuse, and hearing it glorified for the sake of cheap shock value seems to corny. It just makes me think of SLC Punk or something.

Punk is just a vehicle to romanticize a person's asshole behavior and it's a fashion choice that allows rich kids to have delusions of being an underdog in society.

PUNK IS DEAD if it rejects Chaos in favor of being the enforcers of a moral code, so here's my moral code that should be enforced.

WKSJ? is cool and I'm for sure the minority here. I don't back what Chris said, though.

He did mention something about genitals making your band more popular or some shit along those lines. It hit me after I read that:
The band started with no female vocals and now they have been using female vocals the past couple years. Hmmm...

Band is cool. Members are known to be pretty strange. The singer was on that Ancient Aliens show. Also you can't tell me you've heard their music and are surprised by this FB post!
