There was a time when punk rock and many newly-forming genres were being labeled "new wave" by popular media like MTV. There is no such thing as "new wave", it's something made up of morons who think they can understand what the music was, then ignored it for something new and more profitable.

Today there are MTV-pushed bands being labeled as "punk rock". This "punk rock" does not exist any more than new wave did. A simple image to hide a lack of talent or idea. Don't fall for the lie and try to remember what the old punk rock really was.

pure, raw, intense, and unlimited energy. It was an idea that just meant... "fuck you, I can think on my own, thanks."

I am not implying that punk rock is violence, fights, and tyler durden. I just happen to be a fan of the book and the ideas from "Tylerism" relate to this principle. The principle of going back to what our scene used to be, instead of all this complicated shit.

the song is Circle Jerks - "Red Tape".
