You don’t need to be a punk to listen to punk music

For some people the appeal of punk music isn’t nearly as much about the music as it is about the lifestyle and the fact that punk represents a rebellion from the mainstream. That’s wonderful but you don’t need to be a rebel or punk to enjoy this style of music. You can be anything you want to be and have fun with it. You can be a guy working in an office 250 days a year in a suit and tie and still throw on The Ramones when you get in the car.
One of the unbearable things about so many of the punk musicians and bands was their insistence that the music represented a lifestyle, etc. It did, for sure, but they didn’t have to be nearly as annoying about it as they were. They were and probably still are angry men though, so we can’t blame them entirely for that.
