    Black Veil Brides

    I was a prep all in middle school. I tried to portray myself as rich by wearing all the designer brands, just so I could feel like I fitted in. I had an inner rebellion, this constant turmoil between "fitting in" and being an individual. I was friends with a girl who seemed to...

    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...

    The Ramones

    The Ramones completely threw music onto its ear in the 70's and along with the Sex Pistols (although The Ramones came first) Punk rock shifted the musical hemispheres in the west and shook up and spit out rock and roll in a down and dirty and underground way. Nothing was ever...

    Good Riddance

    I turned to music because I was an outcast, and I didn't have people to turn to, so I related to music and lyrics... punk rock tended to have the most relatable lyrics. I've gone through an appreciation of all kinds of punk rock -- first, pop punk (with Green Day, All Time Low...

    Of All Kinds.

    I love Punk music. Everything from old school punk like X-Ray Spex, Sex Pistols, Ramones, The Clash, Dead Kennedys to newer stuff. I love Ska Punk as well, like Save Ferris, No Doubt and Streetlight Manifesto. I also adore Celtic Punk, like The Pogues, Flogging Molly, The Tossers...

    Why Define It When It Runs Through Your Veins?

    I've heard the same useless debate for the past 6 years in the punk scene: what exactly is or isn't punk? The patches on your jacket? The length of your mohawk? The people you associate with? Whether you listen to it exclusively or like other genres too? Stop defining it and...

    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.

    Hi

    I grew up with my parents listening to The Clash, The Ramones, and Social Distortion, Sex Pistols, and I think that both having mental illness and probably having that tendency to rebel, I started hanging out with kids that listened to punk from the time I was in 6th grade...

    A Taste Of Copper

    I've loved punk rock since I was 14. Maybe I'll go into the weird transition I made into it sometime, but that's not what this is about. I was bound into punk from when I first heard it. I was never popular in high school....I was a 'freak' a 'nerd' a 'geek' a 'weirdo...

    My Soul Wears Ripped Up Leather

    From the moment I heard my first NOFX song, I was hooked. And no offense to the new guys, but havn't heard too many newer punk bands that can hold a candle to the pioneers of punk.

    For those who don't know, the band that people mostly know as a 90s one hit wonder band (Tubthumping) was actually an anarchist punk collective. Their sound has changed throughout the years, but they've stayed true to their message. They retired this year after thirty years...

    Minutemen!

    I discovered the Minutemen about 6 months before D. Boon died. I saw them on tour with R.E.M. back in the mid 80's (86 I believe). To say that their approach to "punk rock" spoke to me would be an understatement. I'd never before heard a band with such ferocity but no distorted...
