Pay a visit to your local mallrats, and you’ll probably end up hearing some half-thought-out discourse about how punk is (A) dead, (B) compromised by the big corporations, (C) bullshit or (D) all of the above. I’ve never understood these viewpoints, in that I don’t understand how an idea like punk can ever die. Nor do I think it’s ever really been compromised, other than a few bands finally figured out how to make money off of it. So it goes. As for the (C) option, well, sure, you can find a few assholes here or there, but isn’t that true for any group? Getting back to “punk as a concept,” though, it’s impossible for it to ever die. It’s been introduced to the atmosphere, and it’s always going to reside there. And I think retro-punk acts like Scotland’s Beerzone and Florida’s Suburban Lockdown would agree with that.
