    Punk Rock Ruined My Life.. Or Did It?

    I began with bands like Good Charlotte and Simple Plan, and through their t-shirts and patches they "rocked" I began finding other bands I enjoyed. I was fourteen and no one I knew listened to Punk so it was a start. I dropped out of high school through other problems I had...

    Ideal punkrock for me is defiantly nirvana

    and foo fighters. Love them. Also neon punk like red hot chili peppers.

    punk is my escape, my drug,

    my life. without it I wouldn't be half who I am because music defines people. it taught me not to take **** from anyone and to not give a ****. punks are some of the most amazing people you meet and only do I have 1 friend I connect this way with and she is the best.

    I'm a punk rocker. I never really find people

    into punk rock. Real punk like black flag, NOFX, rancid just good ****. I grew up listening to it and it always stuck. I'm just in love with it.

    I love all my punk girl bands!

    Right now I've really gotten back into Tilt, the Lunachicks, Tsunami Bomb, and especially the Dance Hall Crashers. It's impossible for me to be in a bad mood when I'm listening to my old middle school favorites.

    Really digging some Lagwagon

    and No Use for a Name right now. Not exactly the heaviest or the oldest kind of punk, but I think both bands have great lyricists and a solid sound (especially NUFAN). If you haven't heard of them or heard any of their material, with Lagwagon, my favorite without a doubt is "Let...

    The song Aenema By Tool has a punk message.

    Punk and grunge are my favorite music genre in

    the world. But I don't understand those people who go out their way to buy a band t shirt if they don't know the band. Or those people who start trying too hard fitting within the label. People should just be themselves and stop being something they are not.

    I live just east of Amarillo,

    the city where Brian Deneke was killed nearly 20 years ago. The saddest part is, the punk scene in Amarillo is dead. I can't even get members for a solid punk band! Tonight, this has been on my mind. People became afraid to express who they really were all because of some coward...

    Punk, Ska, and Reggae.

    Well, with some grunge thrown in. I really want to start my band back up, but there are absolutely no other people here that play. I guess the moral of the story is, if you have a chance to move to Texas, don't.

    I love almost all genres of rock,

    but punk is my favorite -- particularly hardcore punk, melodic hardcore, skate punk, and that late 80s/early 90s pop punk in the vein of Lagwagon, NOFX, and No Use for a Name. Speaking of them, Fat Wreck Chords (the label for all three of those bands) is a diamond mine for...
