    when I was 13 i had some cd of offspring and blink182..after i have listened to metal like helloween and iron maiden..i got into punk at 17 thanx to my mates of school..i started to listen the clash,sex pistols,rancid nofx pennywise misfits etc..I was really struck by this new way to play (I came from 4 years of metal and hard rock!!)and their bad attitudes,my favourite song was complete control of the clash and I'm still loving it!
    but when i heard NO JUSTICE NO PEACE of aus rotten a new world was opened to my eyes..i discovered CRASS A//POLITICAL HUMAN INVESTMENT and all radical bands and I said:THAT is standing against the system!!fuck yes!!it is not a false rebellion like that who bands such as nofx and pennywise support..crass introduced me to vegetarism
    now i like more the classic punk than crust and grind..i listen to hardcore oi! punk rock 77..I in general love the brithish punk,i really like the classic sound of varukers etc

    I think the more important thing to ask me is, How & when did I "become a Rudie"? :skinhead: :anti-nazi: :skinhead:

    I heard about this thing called punk in this one magazine as just really agressive loud music so I took my guitar and amp with a friend over at my house and started doing just that (Turns out what i was playing at that time was basically punk before i ever actually heard punk). I was really fascinated by the idea of hard agressive rock music at the time, and i never even heard it (I was only like 11 or 12 at the time). I was a total little punk in my head though. Then one day I went over to this record store and was looking for kill em all by metallica (I enjoyed their music a bit at the time). I didn't get Kill em All, I deicded to instead aquire a cheap copy of a T.S.O.L album (Their first self titled ep thing). I'm guessing it was how young i was or the way I was dressed or something but the guy rang the album up and gave me a funny look and i walked off. I listened to it, and I was practically in shock. It was nothing I ever really heard before. I was then addicted. I got into bands like Dead Kennedys...black flag...etc.

    I was always a little bit of an anarchist (since I was like 8) I was a pretty old soul at a young age. I really hated injustice and stuff. When I found stuff like crass and flux and those types of bands i really digged it.

    I'm 17 now...I don't really listen to as much hardcore punk as I used to. I dig going to shows though. I still love the music and the message, but I realized that so much of punk is just like high school jocks with mohawks "Look how many patches i have" mentality and i hate that. I still love certain bands though like Regean Youth...the Void...Rudimentary Peni is one of my favs...some powerviolence...DOOM...Flipper..all that good stuff

    My favortie bands : The Replacements, Nick Drake, Peni, Joy Division,

    all sorts of stuff though

    I heard a song by Calibretto 13 and thought it was pretty cool, and shortly thereafter- Op Ivy (oh how I loved this band) within a couple months, punk had grabbed my testicles and refused to let go.

    This is something of a 180 degree turn from your earlier post... so, none of us are punks and we're all losers throwing dumb words around... but then punk is cool and punks are fine? What the hell? As for your how-dare-you-call-yourselves-punks bullshit, I direct you to the URL of the fucking site.

    I first got my interest in the whole punk culture when I was probably about 15 or 16. I grew up in a small town, where there wasn't much culture other than the good ole' boy culture. Lot of rednecks, because, hell, I'm in the middle of fucking Texas. I truly hated the herd mentality, I hated that I basically knew what my future was going to be like if I stayed there (I'm no longer in that little shit-hole, btw,) and I hated that NOBODY asked questions. I've always been a skeptic, I don't just buy into what someone tells me. I started out on bands like Bad Religion and Rancid, but I delved deeper, went to punk shows in Waco (yeah, there WAS actually a scene there,) and some of the other guys told me about bands like Crass, bands that actually stood for something. I started changing the way I dress around this time too. I had liberty spikes, wore chains and stuff, because this was pretty much unheard of in Gatesville. After I graduated High School, they actually put a rule in the rule book about spiking your hair. It was a way for me to show them that I didn't fit into their damned mold. I don't dress that way anymore, because I don't feel the need to. I still listen to loads of punk rock, but I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a solid punk rocker anymore. I'll always be one at heart, but I don't label myself too much anymore.

    I moved back to Vancouver in 1989 at 15, a group of 20 something punks kidnapped me :thumbsup: and I was indoctrinated by an Anarchist cult and forced to read Goldmann, Proudhon, Bakunin while listening to the Subhumans (UK), Conflict, Crass, Flux of the Pink Indians, Omega Tribe on endless rotation until my will to consume, horde and oppress broke. Oh yeah, and I worked at a cannery and had to give up 1/2 my earnings for 'the cause'. The cause being the beer fridge :beer: and the record collection. I loved those people but they have all soul-ed out and moved on to careers.

    Operation Ivy was the first punk band I got into and I chuckled just right now because I looked down and realized I was wearing their shirt. I didn't get into the whole punk trip until the next year when I changed schools and A thrasher saw me draw an anarchy sign on my shoe and told me to draw a pentagram. Through him I met other punks and then I discovered Nausea and later Aus-Rotten and Doom. Now I know a lot more than just two or three bands and I love being apart of a community with open-minded people like this.

    When I was 9 or 10 I was into stuff like Blink 182, Green Day, Sum 41 (I still enjoy these bands) and then my older brother got me into Rancid, Ramones, Choking Victim/Leftover Crack and No-Cash, when I was 11 - 12 I was heavily into Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish and Big D and The Kids Table, then when I turned 13 I started getting into metal and temporarily stopped listening to as much punk, when I was 16 I was reintroduced to pop punk like Blink-182 and Green Day from a friend who I was singing for his grunge project at the time, then when I was 17 I got busted on possession of a single gram of cannabis, discovered the system was a complete lie and got back into Choking Victim/Leftover Crack and No-Cash, became an anarcho-communist and ever since have been a full on punk. So over the past 9 or 10 years I've made the transition from pop punk fan to metalhead to full on punk.

    I was bullied at school for being a tomboy who preferred black clothes over pink and who didn't want to bully people just to fit in, not to mention I was always for equal rights for everyone. At a concert held in 7th grade this cover-band played God Save the Queen, so I looked up the song, and later the band, and later other bands. For a while I just listened to Billy Talent, Sex Pistols, Green Day, Good Charlotte and The Offspring, though. I started dressing gradually more "punkish"-- just by wearing more black and red, plus cutting my hair and dying it different shades of red at first. I didn't understand anarchy until I met my most recent ex-boyfriend and asked him to explain it to me, though. What surprised me was how that was how I'd always imagined the ideal society, even at the age of 7. (Despite him I'd still say I'm the only anarchist in town, though, as his mentality can be summed up with "everyone's entitled to be different as long as it's the kind of different I am". He was also extremely anti-feminist and kind of homophobic. By that I mean he's utterly disgusted by lesbians and would go all cold and angry if I for example said I didn't find jokes about prostitution or rape funny.) After a while I got more and more into both the style and the music, and winded up where I am today.

    my mam and dad are punks, so i was raised lisening to punk music and was allways around punks, i got realy early memories of being in smelly flats surrounded with people with mohawks so punk was an every day thing. but as i grew up my mam n dad became more systemised which resulted in me forgeting about my punk roots. i supose they wanted me to fit in and not have trouble from school's n such. as an early teen (14) i began hanging around with chavs and completly turned my back on my past and forgot about my roots, but as the yesars went by i learnt that i was not like these other kids who cared about how they looked, how popular they were and the shit music they listend to so i gradually stopped hanging around with them and enrolled on a music course in college. since i was not surounded with people who were influncing me i began to devolp my own personal likes and intrests and remeberd those punk tracks that used to send me to sleep at night when i was a kid and began to listen to punk music more and more untill i was mostly listening to punk music. im not a sterotypical punk i dont have tatoes or a mohawk but im punk at hart and have the attitude of an anarchist althoug i am starting to embrace the look and the smell :lmao: PUNK for ever

    I got into punk about 9 year ago when I was 11 but it was mainly the 70's punk bands the obvious one's like the ramones etc. then I got to 13 and saw rancid and got into more underground punk bands, I got into anarcho punk a couple of years ago when I was 18 listening to bands like crass, subhumans, conflict, rubella ballet etc. but music wise I listen to loads of different genres but punk will always be my fav.

    Years and years ago, in sixth grade, when we had to stay indoors for rainy day recess we’d play cassettes. This skater kid used to bring the usual pop-ish punk trite: Green Day, Ramones, Rancid, which I thought was pretty cool. One day someone brought in a Black Flag tape – who knows where they got it from. It sort of scared the heck out of me, but it was also more awesome than anything else. Ever. Around the same time, a friend of my older brother suggested that a far better alternative to Green Day’s Dookie was the Stiff Little Fingers’ Inflammable Material. The coolest thing about that album was that it made me read more about The Troubles. From there, I sort of figured that music that made me want to learn about the world was a good thing. And then I heard the Dead Kennedys. The end.
