And Out Come The Kids

Why does nobody post? I mean, 'the kids are punk' is a pretty good title; reminds me of something Lars Fredrickson & The Bastards would sing.

ps. have you seen him lately?

Rancid; one of the first punk bands my friend, Mike, and I got into at fourteen-ish. Uploading the music videos on our slow as fuck kittie comps, we felt good knowing other people (apparently older than us) wore shitty clothes and wondered what the hell was going on in those minds of the rich. They had something to say, backed by a tough, raspy voice, and a lock n key.

Anti-flag, Bad Religion, Black Flag ("one of these things is not like the others")....being grimy, 40 ounces, flipping off teachers. Yeah, fifiteen. But, I suppose that's all the outsider sees, right? Yeah, we were fuck-offs, but for a damned good reason. We had nothing to believe in but ourselves.

We couldn't rock our leather jackets covered in painted band names and symbols, wallet chains, an attitude, or even (gasp) our Own Opinions. To us lowlifes, the flag and the pledge was just another highly effective way of brainwashing us into forgetting what we were really pledgeing to; a nation found on killing, slavery, and rich white ideas. NO FREE HEALTH CARE! So of course, we didn't stand, a silent form of protest responded to by segregation. The authority wouldn't let us in classrooms or school assemblies that included the plegde and flag, as to not contaminate the influential young minds at highschool pep rallies.

Home life wasn't too far off. Our parents would remind us everyday of their wishes for a "normal" kid between their working class gripes and failed dreams. They tried to engrave our brains with messages like, "You can't change the world!". Oh, how we laughed.

Hello everyone.

I'm not quite sure whether this is permited or not, but I'd like to promote my community wardrobehelp

But What's wardrobehelp ?
It is a community in which people can help each other when picking their clothes concerning about what clothes matches with what and the like. Moreover this community is also to encourage DIY, e.g. let's say you have some clothes that are already old but you're just to sad to give away, well then you can post what you've got and ask other people what can you do with them, like sewing it with some other fabric and make cute clothes.

Thank you very much for the attention, everyone is invited to join, and if promoting isn't allowed please delete my entry.

Fuck fashion! Fuck Clothes and FUCK YOU!

I just found this video on Youtube about punk fashion. I half-agree with the comment, "If you're gonna be an asshole enough to pay it, then you know what, good for the person selling it cause you're not smart enough to know to go to the thrift store and make it yourself or whatever, go ahead, spend your money." In punk, you can walk into any store; Old Navy, the thrift store, Hottopic, a Vivienne Westwood boutique, even fuckin' Hip-Hop Heaven, and think "oh, that shit sucks, but I can rock it." You can rip it up, wear it in a mocking way, or just properly accessorize, and there, it's punk. There is no one direction to punk, and it is the only style with freedom such as that.

The essence of anti-culture.

What does punk mean to you?


"We don't make wide leg bondage pants.
We don't make boot cut jeans.
We don't do straight leg.
We don't make halloween costumes.
We don't make anything that sparkles.
We aren't here to cash in the trendy dollar.
We don't sell to Hot Topic.
We back our scene.

Support The Independent.

One example, and perhaps my favorite, example of keeping punk alive; the indie brand Dogpile-77! Found here: dp-77.com/home.php
Starting with plain t-shirts and some spray paint, they've worked up to carrying high quality garments. Everything here is classic. Classic cut, classic material, and all the necessary punk spirit, straight from '77! They have a huge selection of pins, a good selection of traditional punk band shirts, and carry your standard pogo pant. They are also carry APE leather accessories, which are amazing quality, but I've found, recently, horrible with customer service. I ordered a vegan belt straight from them, and never received it. So if you're looking at APE, buying from DP-77 is your best bet! But, what draws me to them over any other online punk retailer, are their original designs! My weakness: their mini-skirts.

The PVC Maria micro-mini skirt

The Molotov Mini

The Disaster Mini

I only wish they had a bigger selection in girls' sizes (XS dammit!) aside from the skirts, but my complaints stop there. Everything I own by them is 100% cotton and extremely comfy. I've had several pieces for years, and they're set to last a lot longer!
