This is the most real post on here. I was going to say "well it's whatever edgy early teenagers think their parents hate... that's punk," but decided against it. But Dogs is right here. It's sort of just general angsty-ness at whatever the world around you is. I can enjoy the older punk bands from the late 70's and 80's, but past that it is, again as Dogs said, just annoying. And the whole bit about the irony of punk music being corporatized is just perfect. I used to like bands like Blink and Green Day when I was in high school, but after a few years I realized that 1) they were formulaic and often just sounded like they were whining, and 2) they represented everything that they, and their fans, acted like they resented. I mean when you dominate radio airplay and have touring, multi-day festivals dedicated to your music, you are the establishment.
