is that guys (and girls?) who have serious passive/aggressive rebellion pattern colored with a real antagonistic posture toward society, don't stand out against the background of burning man too much
who sort of prides himself on being a misfit, and he's sort of afraid of going to BM and no longer being the freak
Ha, this reminds me of when I was in school--all the kids were "non-conformist." they were so non-conformist that it became the new trend. It was totally conformist to be non-conformist; it was right under their noses and they never even realized it.

Right, just like all of your friends!
Also, since we're on the subject, what's the deal with High School kids still wearing Black Flag, Misfits, Dead Kennedy (insert favorite 80's punk band here: ____________ ) t-shirts?? . Are there no new punk bands out these days? Are they really listening to these bands or are they just wearing the shirts? I have to ask one of them next time I see them.

I think Joey Shithead would beg to differ.
there are also a lot of kids doing it to be 'different"
i completely agree that the non- conformists who are actually inadvertantly being conformists are odd. but comicial indeed

Does anyone else see the oxymoron in this sentence or is it just me?

Anyway, Punk's not dead, never will be, as long as there are kids in garages and basements with guitars who are mad at stuff and only know 3 chords, punk will live.
As long as there are kids who wear ripped jeans because they cant afford new ones because they spent all there money on ramones cd's and skateboards, punk will live.
As long as teenagers are angry and misunderstood, punk will live.
As long as there are art school drop outs making music, punk will live.
See punk music is folk music with electric gutairs, listen to it.
Now, Joey wouldnt have wanted punk to die with him, would he? I dont think so.
