    It started off with Bad religion, then moved to Black flag, then Subhumans and it just escalated from their.

    I was born in '68, making me a child when punk hit the UK. My best mate at school had an older brother who was a punk, safety pin through the nose, the works. He was the only one we knew, and being 9 years old we were terrified of him, but being lads, we snuck into his room and listened to all his records when he was out...

    ...that, my friends is how it started!

    What first influenced me was my cousin, I had already been listening to some bands (Rancid, Sex Pistols, Minor Threat) but mostly metal and pop-emo bands at the time, my cousin showed me C.V. and L.O.C. and so I started listening mostly to C.V. and got into bikini kill and Fidlar and Dropkick. After listening to them I distanced myself from the more corporate emo scene and kinda lingered in a bit of a alternative scene. My grandparents took me and my cousins on a trip to scotland where i met the amazing anarcho-punk Max and hung out with him in the city of glasgow for a while while he drunkenly yelled about antifa, anarchism, communism, and the punk scene. I lived in Tucson, Arizona so me already being fairly into punk I started to make some local punk friends at community events and then i just got deeper and deeper into the scene.
    Well coming from a bit more liberal artsy direct family (still very fucked up tho haha), I always have been on the more left side of politics but had always been taught that anarchy was chaos and communism just looked good on paper. My cousin forrest is an anarcho-syndicalist and my cousin clara is a communist and i was next to them when they were having the conversation so I decided to look more into it through the internet and such, which had changed my political ideology to direct-democracy. After I started to get into protesting and my spanish teacher got me into the BLM politics I started to become more and more upset and dissapointed with the current system untill I deeply hated it, I started to get more into anarchism, anarchist and antifascist protests. I now am currently reading Kropotkins work and am in between Anarcho-Comunnism, Syndicalism, or Collectivism.

    There are anarchist communities here in the the US, theres a big anarchist community in denmark thats seperate from the government, there was free cataonolia which was anarchist for the working class and was working really well till the still existing government fucked it over. There was a free state in ukrane for a while untill the surrounding ussr allied with it and then took it buy surprise and slaughtered its militias.

    I was first shown Anti-Flag back in the 7th grade but I wrote it off for a while. Around my sophomore of high school I got into new wave and eventually punk. I was big into protesting social injustices so naturally I clung to anarcho-punk and crust because they were the main groups that wrote songs about things that were relevant to me. I just kinda never stopped.

    I remember getting into Rock music and watching youtube rock vids and listening to a song from an artist I don't remember, I found two songs from Green Day: Basket Case and Boulevard of Broken Dreams, since then I got in love with Green Day and watching some information about them I ended listening to Punk Rock from all times.

    I didn't "Become" a punk, I was BORN a punk, and will most likely die a punk!
    I am autistic, and I was born in the 1960s. I used to listen to the top 40 station to go to bed to when I was a small child. Back in the 60s, the music they played was still good, and I lived in a city where the top 40 station would play stuff like Eve of Destruction, Fortunate Son, and even Sky Pilot, plus my mother was an anti war activist so there was always Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, Leonard Cohen, and even Bob Dylan on the record player at all times, as well as The Beatles and Supremes. As I got older, and explored music more, I started listening to hard rock, and Led Zepplin, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, and most importantly, Black Sabbath were my go to bands. Also Kiss, Alice Cooper, and David Bowie. I was a bit into Glam at a young age. Also Rolling Stones As the 70s progressed, the format on top 40 radio got worse and worse, so I tuned into the FM stations, but if they played any of the hard rock stuff I liked, it would already be something I owned, or it would be Prog rock like Yes, which I found to be boring.

    I should also mention that I discovered The Who when I was about six, but the only album I owned was Tommy, and didn't really get into them until Live at Leeds. At first I loved that album, but then I thought some of the songs went on too long, especially the My Generation suite.

    At twelve I was bored, and well on my way to becoming a juvenile delinquent, until I picked up a copy of High Times magazine with Johnny Rotten on the cover and thought to myself that David Bowie had really let himself go.

    After I read the article, I did more research on this new thing (At the time) called "Punk Rock" and discovered that musically, it had all the best elements of why I liked rock and roll in the first place.

    Life's never been the same after that.

    I was listening to punk when they still called it "ROCK AND ROLL"!

    I heard The Misfits when I was 4yo and I just went further and further down the punk rabbit hole.

    Started listening to a lot of late 70's UK punk like the Damned, Pistols Subs Upstarts Ruts etc and progressed from there. Also the likes of Crass in 1979 who were incredible as there was literally nothing like them back then.

    I wouldn't say that I was an anarchist but a lot of the bands from around then and the early 80's like Conflict Flux and the Apostles did influence me greatly

    middle school is when I found the dead Kennedys, all my friends like what they like, but nothing can compare to the grinding sound of sweet, sweet punk music, uuugh I can't get enough. I've been down rabbit holes of industrial and metal but there's nothing like banging your head to some grimy punk
