What Is Punk? (video)

[1 June 2009]

By Elena Mertus

I was having a heated discussion with friends last night. One person would name a band, and we would stick the band in a genre. Sum 41. Punk. Something Corporate. Punk. I was getting mad, because to me, those bands are not punk. Maybe pop-punk/emo. In my world, punk equals Misfits. Flashback, to “Last Caress”.
