It really bothers me when I see people use the word "punk" to mean "bad kid". I'm a 30 something punk rocker, with my own business, college degree, home, and other normal functional adult things. I still wear spikes, yes, to work, and make them work in my business formal office environment. I hide my mohawk and tattoos for work and usually leave my big black boots at home on work days. I listen to very loud, very fast politically charged music, most of it about how governmental institutions aren't doing the members of society any favors. Please reconsider using the word "punk" unless you actually know the person id's him/her self as a punk rocker. Not all of us in the mosh pit are worthless criminals. If I hadn't found punk rock, I wouldn't have been inspired to continue my education so I could have a job fighting the government on behalf of the little guys. Using the work punk so negatively leads me to believe you do not know a wide variety of punk rockers in real life. Most of us are aware the word originally referred to a particular type of inmate way back in the 1960s. However, the word has come a very long way since then. Many of us fell into punk because we were attracted to the "DIY" mind set, not drugs and vandalism. I am anti-authority, but that doesn't mean I break the law or have no manners.
