    Great post Joe

    Ive always felt that if i had to label myself anything after all these years its would be a punk..., now i wasn't old enough to be in or around the original scene, but its was more a way of being as a kid for me, wanting to be different becasue i didn't feel like i fit in, the freaks, the geeks, the oddballs, to me were all punks..

    I think a lot of the old punk guys, like Henry Rollins are still old punks doing things on thier own terms and i know if it wasn't for punk music and the whole DIY theme i wouldn't own a comic book store and be the person i am without it.

    As far as BAD RELIGION and AGAINST ME, both are extremely musically and lyrically talented bands..., just becasue a band does the warped tour for a little cash doesn't lose them punk credibility.

    And your right about that scene, it exsists here in Baltimore... a lot of these younger kids invite me to thier shows and they are about as punk as it gets including being banned for starting riots from major clubs in the area...

    good times

    Joe at around 2:50 into this CLIP i think ive heard the best explanation of why PUNK mattered and why it still should and always will from Mike Ness...just the most simple explanation of what made punk music and culture important, individualism

    Thanks, Joe.

    I figure it had to've been done already. I guess The Flintstones would also count.
