These kinds of arguments only split up the community and I believe the punk rock scene should be all inclusive and that there is room for everybody of all different musical tastes.
In my humble opinion the most punk band there is is the band playing a show nearest you and next! The true magic of the punk rock experience is the live show. The interaction between the musicians on stage and the fans watching and dancing to the music. The relationships built at the live venue is the real value. There is a crazy energy shared between everyone in attendance that can not be felt on a recorded album.
By all means go and see the bigger than life touring mega bands but also enjoy your local bands and give them them the same level of support that you give the super stars!
Because while we all love the classic established bands and the big hit radio play legends, can you build a real relationship with these people? Can you drink beers or smoke weed with them, drop in on their practices or even work for them?
It is vital to support touring bands! Your financial support will help them get the gas to their next gig as well as food and expenses. Supporting local bands could lead to some amazing friendships that could improve the life of everyone involved!
So if you want to find some REAL punk rock, go out and find a show and get involved! Buy a t-shirt or an album and network and build lasting relationships. I guarantee you will have the time of your life!!
