Punk rock is music for the unintelligent. It's the one type of music that you have to listen to while drunk, being angry also helps. That's the only way anyone would find this genre even mildly pleasing to the ear. And I'm not talking about getting buzzed, either. I'm talking about getting black out drunk.

You especially have to be mentally impaired to attend a punk rock show. These things are always held at shitty venues approaching bankruptcy or at some kid's house whose parents obviously don't care about him. The punk rock bands at these shows are nothing more than grown men with spiky hair dressed in colorful tartan and BDSM attire.

Can we all agree that a punk rock show is basically a license to beat each other up. It's like a much more boring version of Palahniuk's Fight Club. Extra points if you drop all your weight on the crowd by jumping on top of them. Everyone also feels the need to take off their shirts letting the rest of the audience know that they have a perspiration-related medical condition.

And while punk rock enthusiasts will always see their community as a subversive and necessary counter culture, let's call it what it really is: a cult of professional bedazzlers. Have you seen the impeccable attention to detail they put into studding their jackets with spikes and patches?

To recap: That's why punk rock is my favorite type of music.
