Some good music, it almost defines today's political climate. Punk rock was predictive!

You call this punk music because it's labeled 'Punk Tastic' or you have some sense of what punk music? It's neither. FAIL. Brush up on what punk music is -- better yet what was punk.

How bout you let us know what you think punk is? Because to me punk was a term of a time. That time has passed, so in that sense you could say that R&B was punk also. PUNK was and is an idea. The time and term will change but not the idea. Just because you don’t view something as punk does not mean that everyone does also.

uuuh, ok...

this is punk. that music in the op is typical pop tripe.



And just for political climate reference, welcome to 1980, the lyrics:

So you been to school
For a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car
Thinkin' you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl

Play ethnicky jazz
To parade your snazz
On your five grand stereo
Braggin' that you know
How the n!ggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul

It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear
Brace yourself, my dear

It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough, kid, but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife

You're a star-belly snitch
You suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch
So you can get rich
But your boss gets richer off you

Well you'll work harder
With a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers
'Til you starve
Then your head is skewered on a stake

Now you can go where people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
What you need, my son
What you need, my son

Is a holiday in Cambodia
Where people dress in black
Need a holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll kiss ass or crack

Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot
Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot

It's a holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll do what you're told
A holiday in Cambodia
Where the slums got so much soul

Pol Pot

Like I said, that was the acoustic version

this band would fall under the 2nd wave of punk style of music, they do have some 3rd wave type songs though.

DK songs are classic though, you blast them and everyone around looks at you funny while you look back giving zero fawks.

Yea, the hardcore punks caused the ska revolution, which definitely was not a bad thing.

Sucked being called a skinhead as a kid though, i wasn't, i was an anti-establishment punker 100%. Shave 90% of your head and leave the hair in the middle for a mohawk, ANTICHRIST!!!

I got that look a lot.

If I really have to beat my face against the air, this is the stuff..

and the lyrics of this are not about anger, but redemption. so nothing in lieu with the premise of punk, but picking yourself up from the ruins of a life spent lost.



Good thread tho mate !!
didn't mean to come across as a johnny downer.

Bro, you need to look more into this whole punk thing, Greenday was punk before they sold out. Look up 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, their first album. Pretty damn good.

Man !!! I was called a skinhead as a teen so many times, had idiots throw change at me when the bus drove off, called a 'klan member' just because I shaved my head. the music I listened to was nothing like the crap the likes of the skinheads listened to. I feel you on that one brother.

I wasn't brave enough to do a mohawk more than once. where I lived, you were either a surfey, or a bogan. if the two ever met, it was for some reason, a fight. I would have been attacked by all and sundry. lmao.

And I hated also, being associated with the racist skins at the time. so I just kept my hair long. Irony I think that now, decades later, I am going bald..

It's a bit how I feel listening to really old carcass. back when it was growl music. And the first time I heard fear factory, and all my mates loved (and I could never get in to) it was also the same.

Tell you what tho, I could never explain this Aussie band...


lol sorry I'm getting away from the point.. had a few this hot arvo...

I dig that one, I can imagine behind the earbud.. Or should I say headphones !! the rest of the world just went away, like, get out of my way.. Public transport music is always awesome like that !!

Here's another aussie band, I'd never heard of before a member here, Lysergic, posted it. It is not in any way a musicl masterpiece, but they apparently were old school punk before they.... aged.. lol

I think they kinda epitomise the Aussie slant on punk, or.. whatever they are doing lol.
