Today we pay tribute to a subculture statement that
was at it’s peak one of the most radical in a line of other
rebellious subcultures.

A lot of punk elements have been assimilated and adopted
into mainstream whatevers and new subcultures.
Which means that the statement of punk worked!
It changed the world a bit in breaking some barriers
that definitely needed to be broken.

🦨

The work of counter-cultures is still not done yet.
Remember the old punk and remember to be open for
any good rebellion that suits you and makes the
world more colorful…literally and figuratively

When people talk about punk they talk about punk fashion.
The way punk began was probably in short:
It was the 1970-something…or something alike.
Youth facing economic and political crisis and older
generations they could not identify with.

A whole generation had a lot of reasons to be depressed
and when you get in a sudden depression, you either sink down
or you develop a coping mechanism.
 

🎶
One of these coping mechanisms was the tried and true way
of youngsters through the ages of becoming obstinate
and doing all kinds of things that the parents didn’t like.

And the most important part of being obstinate
is to have fun with being obstinate!

Punk was a loud coping mechanism.
Punk was loud in emotions.
Punk was loud in music.
And…
Punk was loud in colors!👩‍🎤
Does punk still exist?

That depends on which definition of punk you use.
Many people nowadays who call themselves punk do face
similar situations as the people in the seventies.

Others are merely punk fashion.
Can’t blame them…looks are a matter of taste.

👨‍🎤
Also punk rock is a music genre….or not…

You can argue about what a genre precisely should contain,
but we leave that to the music critics and ‘gatekeepers’.
