    i'd agree with what you're getting at in most cases (other arts, sciences), and man i'm never going back to the states if i can help it, but i gotta hand it to the americans in having a pretty rich and complex history of folk music (and i'm including rock, r&b, country, etc, hell, hip hop in there too), and in such a short period of time (150 years?).

    OTOH, while i love and fully appreciate the impact of british innovations in popular/rock music in the last 60 years, i find them awfully cocky about music for a place that old that didn't have much going on between dowland and the 20th century.

    States of punk are like Schrodinger's cat - it's simultaneously 'punk' and 'not punk' until you actually try to pin it down.
    At which point formal recognition invalidates the existence of punkness, it glints out of existence - but not before tossing a cherry bomb down your loo and setting the yard on fire.

    GG Allin - Just like punk but the singer might throw poop at you before he dies of a heroin overdose.

    New Wave, if it ever existed as a genre at all, was over before the end of the '70s. The keyboard-heavy skinny-tie haircut music featured in the early days of MTV was something else.

    1970 The Stooges. Check out Iggy at about 4:14 for one of the most iconic images in rock.

    Punk is hard for me, when we have the Stooges, who were really raw, and the Clash, who were really polished, both falling into the same tent.

    I would rather listen to a variety of punk that I don’t even really like than Boston or Supertramp or Jefferson starship or Styx.

    Bit that’s just me.

    I’m with you all the way.

    And now after watching that clip again the question seems to me less “what is punk” and more “what do you call the difference between the commentator and the almighty Stooges?”

    To me punk means iconoclasm, energy, and creativity, physically and intellectually.

    You know it when you hear it, see it, think it do it.
