I’m curious about what acts of “mayhem” Republican punk rockers indulged.

Wearing white before Memorial Day.

Wearing straw hats after Labor Day.

Yelling "look out" instead of "fore."

Tipping the garcon at a Parisian cafe. 

Salad forks are for posers, any fork will do.

Punk/hardcore pushed back on the conventional views of music, politics, and dress.

I remember the ad firm that put this Suburu commercial together caught a lot of S~~t for its attempted highjack of punk/grunge. 1992 - thirty seconds.

Punk rock never said — “Excuse me.”

I just came across this music video and thought it sounded pretty much the opposite of punk/hardcore. Being the rebel I am, I decided to post it anyway.

Watch the singer's lips and I guarentee you'll fall in love.

 

 

All music welcome on this thread.

A similar groove...

Biden Watch

Dear Joe Biden: are you kidding me?

For years, I’ve been trying to impart a simple concept that Superman is not coming.

Dare I say, I had hopes that this new administration would usher in the dawning of a new day. As picks for President-elect Joe Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) transition team were announced, I felt concerned and disheartened about a chemical industry insider being on the list. Are you kidding me?

The US is in a water crisis far worse than most people imagine | Erin Brockovich

Michael McCabe, a former employee of Biden and a former deputy Environmental Protection Agency administrator, later jumped ship to work as a consultant on communication strategy for DuPont during a time when the chemical company was looking to fight regulations of their star chemical perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) also known as C8. The toxic manmade chemical is used in everything from waterproof clothes, stain-resistant textiles and food packaging to non-stick pans. The compound has been linked to lowered fertility, cancer and liver damage. The Guardian reported this week that Harvard school of public health professor Philippe Grandjean, who studies environmental health, warns that PFAS chemicals, of which PFOA is one, might reduce the efficacy of a Covid-19 vaccine.
