    Punk rock is an anti-establishment rock music movement with origins in the United States and United Kingdom around 1974 or 1975, exemplified by bands such as the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Damned, and The Clash.

    The term punk is used to describe the associated subculture, involving youthful aggression, specific clothing styles, ideologies, and a DIY (do it yourself) attitude.

    If u need to know more then go to:

    its a fashion, its a music, ITS A MENTALITY. the inability to remain under someone elses control for very long at all. or to let anyone else to tell you what to think. i rock out to the music, and i take every opportunity to rebel against authority. i jsut don't like the mohawk ****. but exactly, if i got a mohawk, then i wouldn't be punk anymore, i would be TRENDY. if i was part of a large punk movement, i would be TRENDY. its basically about behing who you are and not letting anyone tell you what to think or do. fight if you have to, or perfer not to. and if you want to listen to punk rock, good bands to listen to are: green day, rise against, and Sum 41. those all vie for my favorite in my head, but they all have distinctly differant sounds.

    Source(s): realizing what punk is and listenting to it. don't pick the people who copy off wikipedia as your best answer!

    This is when you are on the receiving end of a practical joke from Ashton Kutscher. He will jump out and yell YOURE PUNKED in your face. It's humiliating.

    It means Rocking out on stage and to dress how you want to dress even if you are different and an outsider to the rest of the world. Emotional writing in the lyrics.

    Example: Green Day
