Nothing mainstream is punk. Nothing.

This article states that a song by Taylor Swift is "punk."

The article itself states that it could have been an Avril Lavigne (hereby called "Anal Ravine") song, as they both have the same song writer, and this song sounds exactly like an Anal Ravine song. There is absolutely nothing punk about this. Punk isn't about angry rich girls who are sad about a made-up boyfriend breaking up with them. It's about social, political, and cultural values. Usually, about how those values need to change in a violent way. It's about anger at the system. How many Black Flag, Clash, Sex Pistols, Subhumans, Total Chaos, Rancid, NOFX, Agent Orange, Sloppy Seconds, GG Allin, or Pennywise songs were about a breakup?

Check out the link. Write Ann Powers, and tell her that she doesn't speak for punk music. She has no fucking clue what punk music is. She's a fool, a charlatan, and an idiot who wrote a steaming pile of shit in order to try to equate corporate mainstream crap with a sub-genre she doesn't understand.

Here is what Ann Powers thinks punk music sounds like.
