    I've heard of punks making so called gangs but had never encountered any until the other night. I ran into some of the Chi-Town '77 Street Punks that I've heard about. They had some friends with them that had Tiger back patches. Above the Tiger patch it said something I couldn't make out since their long hair was blocking it but the bottom clearly said "Rockers". I doubt they're like a normal street gang, selling crack and shooting each other, but who the fuck knows. Does anyone know anything about the Chi-Town '77 Street punks, the mysterious Tiger-rocker guys, or any other "punk rock gangs"? Are they REALLY gangs, or just crews that sets up shows or something of the sort?

    I wasn't sure where to post this so if you think it should be moved go ahead and move it.

    Chi-Town street punk dudes...I've heard of them. Fence-sitter scum. They're the type of people that would get banned here. They used to have a website like 10 years ago, don't know about now. The tiger guys are a mystery. There used to be tons of punk gangs in the early 80's scene, kind of non-existent now...aside from certain HxC crews.

    Was going to be in one when I was younger.
    Not a gang though. just a group of "punks" to defend ourselves from any gangster or nazi's in the area that would harass us.
    Never went through with it though. I was young, I was 14 Friends were 16/17.

    i dont think they ever claim to be a gang
    but it seems implied. (did i spell that right?)
    Im sure the mentality is there when it comes to
    fighting one anothers fights.
    its probably more along the lines of a social club
    meaning they hang out with eachother.
    i've witnessed them to play around with racist and
    sexist terms for the sake of shock value which i think is stupid but i dont need to get into that.
    it seems to be a popular re-occuring theme among sub-culture.
    i've had people tell me they are goons.
    you know yer run of the mill thug.
    its no surprise.
    a group of people fucking up isn't news.
    im sure there is an argument that
    "punk" is dangerous and you're going to bump elbows with
    un savory types. i think its lame but maybe not untrue..
    atleast among certain groups. i

    In san diego over in the east county theres a group called the "Low Lifes", dont really know what they're about partly because they follow a code of "everything we do is secret" but they're just petty thieves and system fuckers from what i can gather, which is all good. just dont let'em near you stuff...or for that matter your drugs or booze! :beer:

    How big is the "punkrock gang" thing on your side of the atlantic ocean?

    In Denmark there isn't really any of such - which is nice.. Haha..

    It's basically nothing here too. Like I said, aside from some of the tough-guy HxC crews, it's pretty rare.

    That's good... I just heard a bit about it and it's hard to know how bad it is from the other side of the pond...

    I never understood the idea of gangs anyway... Luckily there's not much of it where I live... Or well, a bit - but it's pretty easy to avoid bumping into...

    Yeah I saw that too. They (FSU/Friends Stand United/Fuck Shit Up) stomp neo-nazis wherever they find them, but they did kill a dude at a 25 Ta Life show. Not that I care much for 25 Ta Life or their macho homophobic fans with gangster mentality, but murder was a bit of an overkill, pun intended.


    I was in a crew in my skinhead days, but it was more of just a group of friends drinking beer and listening to music at each other's houses, and travelling to shows together. It consisted of a mix of a few skinheads, a couple crusties, and some other people into punk, hardcore and indie rock that had nobody else to hang out with in our semi-little town. That's the way i liked it, diverse and unified. No need to jump in on anybody else's fight unless it was to keep things fair.

    I cannot share those stories as they were some pretty sketchy times,, I hope you understand.

    But I do remember that groups of these dudes would walk the streets at night and beat up crusties or as they called them "dirty kids"

    And here is a murder that one was involved in: http://www.chitowndailynews.org/Chicago ... wning,9838
    The comments below the main article may shed some light on this group

    Also I remember someone getting jumped:
    "Someone called about their son being jumped and attacked after a party at 1446 N Artesian.
    The father reported that the son said these were members of Chi-Town 77 and that they outnumbered him 5-1.
    He also reported that they used chains and a pipe on him."

    It takes a quick google search to get a bunch of these stories so try that

    Yeah I've seen that and heard a lot about the militant, straightedge, FSU douches. What's next, militant vegans attack people for drinking milk? :lmao:
    Ah, so they're another one of those "We have nothing better to do so we'll just beat up crusties" groups. Sounds like a bunch of fascists in punk uniforms.

    I've heard about the murder case and have checked them up on google. I was just hoping for some personal experiences, but thanks any way.
