This is no place for minors.
I was raised by punks, my mom by beatniks and my husband by rad scum. Our children will be raised by goths Punks are actually pretty on to it parents. Will goth parents get their own parenting stereotype? I feel like we’ll be liberal and if anything over attentive. We’re also going to be feminist parents, I think our children will probably grow up thinking that it’s totally normal for boys to have long hair and wear makeup and dresses but that boys don’t wear colors
Name your own goddamn subculture, punk died in 1982, I don’t know why you keep insisting on dragging its geriatric carcass around to wear as a hat, you kids these days with your witch house and your soft grunge, and your pastel goth, why you can’t come up with a new name for anything I don’t know, all you do is hyphenate, hyphenated-hyphenate
Saw the Clash in London in the 70s, he’s friends with They Might Be Giants and is the reason I met Thurston Moore at a party. Similarly, my grandparents are buddies with R. Crumb and Janis Joplin threw rocks at my Nana.
In reference to Steel Panther (seriously, you do realize they’re a comedy band, dude, right?) and so I jokingly respond with the cliche “punk is dead” and he gets all pissy, and so I feel the need to make him cry… the funny thing is I don’t even think punk necessarily has to be dead (but ok, punk is pretty fucking dead)
But here, I literally just did this to be mean and I’m not sorry. Sometimes I just need to sharpen my claws on other people’s feelings.
This in no way undermines the fact that I love traditional punk (by the way The Ramones were SERIOUSLY into black early 60s girl groups, so let’s give the Supremes some serious credit for helping to invent punk, cause Ramones and Clash style punk is basically musically stuff like The Dixie Cups and Supremes sped up with white dudes instead of black ladies). It also doesn’t undermine my love of 50s and 60s Rock n’ Roll, glam rock, psychobilly, indie rock, surf rock, Riot Grrl, early goth and death rock, and roots and alt country as well as narco-corridos.
But most of all it doesn’t undermine the fact that I am a seriously tough bitch.
People who are into black metal or death metal, cool, there are some seriously talented musicians in those genres, but it’s primarily not really my thing.
The demonization of pop music (regardless of the popularity of the actual artist is misogynist and fucked.
We’re so fucked up about sex, and adulthood, so cynical because even revolutionary movements have elements of the reactionary to them, mislabeled as revolution.
We’re told over and over not to grow up, this is the result of hippie-dom.
Punk has made genuine love of anything uncool, has made good sex uncool.
These are reactionary elements to revolutionary movements, and they stick around and linger because their revolutionary packaging allows us to think of them as part of the rebellion than part of oppression.
