Point well taken, Hellion. In fact, there is some punk I enjoy and we can all agree that there are good people in every walk of life. A bass player that was in a band of mine MANY years ago quit to go play punk in the 70's. I remember it well because he wanted to be a part of that movement, not the music. This guy was a bass virtuoso. He was able to play bass with the speed of a lead guitarist. Incredible! He chose to leave and be a part of that culture.

I agree with you Deep Freeze!
What they are selling is culture but talk to any hard core punk and they`re just like you and I!
They want what you and I want, to be accepted! And trust me when i say, there is alot of punk out there not worth listening to, but if you find the right band.............well who knows, you might just enjoy them! Rock Hard, Ride Free!

Well, not in the strictest sense anyway. They were sellling through music, but the product they offered was a movement, A lifestyle. A culture. As I mentioned, it is very similar to Rap in that there is not much there musically. As far as substance, the actual product is culture.
