Several punk rock bands have done the same thing with music and fashion. The Ramones have a famous logo that is a parody of the presidential seal, and still remains a best seller for merchandise to this day. The Misfits have some basic mens rock t-shirts with their crimson skull logo, as well as several shirts with horror imagery. Someone doesnt even have to like the band to enjoy these, but could just be a fan of horror films. If the recipient is more in-tune to recent punk bands, more contemporary acts like Green Day, Rancid and Alkaline Trio also have many interesting shirts to choose from.
Many of the punk leather biker jackets have been up for auction, a proof that these are durable and have lasting performance. When the leather jacket can no longer fit the owner’s body size, it is up for sale. Most of them are still in good conditions as they were only worn in special occasions. These jackets are taken to professionals for laundry. They are perfect for fashion, traveling, hiking and any outdoor activities.

The first song I ever heard was Disconnected by Face to Face. I also picked up Punk-O-Rama 4, and Second Best by Pulley was undoubtedly my favourite song of the album.
Most websites charge you a few dollars to download albums but what about the throng of free music downloading sites. They usually get on the wrong side of the law for the terms legal and free dont seem tautological.
For the parent who is decorating the bedroom, punk theme accessories may be hard to find. Talk with the teen about what she would like to see included in the space and go from there. Album covers, roses, and just about any sort of black accessory with a pink accent are all great choices. A funky pink lava lamp or pink rope lights would also be perfect additions to the room’s decor. A quick online search for punk theme items will yield quite a few ideas, but as always, be sure to gain teen approval before placing them in the room.
The film briefly works in its playful identification of the irony of snot-nosed anti-Establishment punks becoming domesticated members of that system. As several of the subjects note, they have to go on stage and sing about anarchy and rebellion and defying authority, then go home and tell their kids not to pick at each other or to do their homework. This is the only time the film successfully differentiates punk fathers from any other hell-raising teen-turned-parental figure, as they still work in a career where they are expected to be the same person from 18 until death.
