punk rockers are NOT: all potheads, stuck up, or selfish
Anyone who argues there's no such thing as individuality because everything's been done before is contradicting them self, because the act of expressing your OWN opinions (which is evidently possible if you're able to speak) involves being an individual, and if they try to argue THAT, they need to get a fucking dictionary.
Yes, it is possible for someone to claim to be a punk rocker and actually be one. If punk rock were about who is 'phony' or 'real', it wouldn't be punk rock- it'd be something else.
No one can MAKE you be punk rock or not. Sure, I could tell you that you're not right now, but if you're going to let that get to you, ARE you really punk rock?
Punk rock is living it up while you can. By my definition.
Listen to some Punk Rock music, and contemplate the lyrics. If you're smart, you'll probably get where I'm coming from.
If you're not smart, you should start with something a little more productive, such as...:
why you're breathing in the first place.

And KC, she wants to run run run
She's a punk rocker, she don't trust no one
On a South Bay bus all alone...
...KC was never caught up
like the rest of the rats in a fucking maze
"Check me out," she said, "I'm in a concrete jungle,
I'm an individual and you are stuck in a haze..."-Rancid, Red Hot Moon
