So when I grew up we had Dead Kennedy's, sex pistols, GBH, Exploited, TSOL, Black Flag. What I would call American punk ( yes I know exploited is Manchester) Then we had Siouxsie and the Banshees, Ian Dury, Madness, Devo ( yes they were yanks) which was British sort of punk. Nowadays I keep hearing of punk bands in the 80s, Billy idol, Trans Vision Vamp etc which are in no way shape or form punk. Now I hear bands I love ( sorry Aussie Bands) like Violent Soho, Smith Street band and Waax getting labelled punk. Great bands but surely not punk, like Green Day, Offspring etc. So what is punk?
