He thinks because he's got spikes on his
Leather, that he's the punkest, he thinks
he's better! He walks around with his
Nose in the air, the only thing bigger
Than his ego is his hair
He thinks that uniform he's wearing is a
Good excuse for his snobby glaring
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
He thinks that uniform he's wearing
Makes him a punk, yeah
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
I don't know when punk became a uniform
I always thought that uniforms were
For the army
But I guess he's right he's got punk rock
Hair, he paid a fortune for his gear
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
He thinks that uniform he's wearing,
Makes him a punk, yeah
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
We've got to try to stick together! Oi!
Oi! We're not supposed to fight each
other Oi! Oi! Stand against the government
but stand up for ourselves Oi! Oi!
If this ignorance continues punk will be
Lost on book shevles Oi! Oi!
What happened to punk rock kids uniting,
now we're competing, now we're fighting
He drives the younger kids away
Sacrificing us for his image, punk rock
Kids will pay
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
He thinks that uniform he's wearing
Makes him a punk, yeah
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
Davey destroyed the punk scene
It's already destroyed.....

    General CommentDoes anyone know who the Davey in this song is? The only Davey in the music business who I can think of is Davey Havok (of AFI) and I don't see why these lyrics would apply to him. But no matter who it's about, or whether Davey just symbolizes a whole bunch of people, great song. It's definitely true that people think they're punk just because they're dressed like punks are supposed to dress, even though one of the main ideas of punk is not caring about fashion and how society thinks you should be.

    General CommentI think this song should be called "Kyle destroyed the punk scene" cuz I know this kid Kyle Mcbee who has the punk uniform and thinks everyone else is a poser. But he's the biggest of all! heheh :P


    seriously now,
    I don't really think this song is about anyone specific. I think it about all those trendy kids that become punk as part of the latest fad or trend or maybe just their current phase. Once they have the clothes they think they are the punkest thing since bondage pants and a spiked collar. But don't really care about what punk is really about.

    GOSSIP: Is Davey Destroyed the Punk Scene about Davey Havok of AFI? Do you hate him?
    RESPONSE TO GOSSIP: Absolutely not. Davey is a great guy and has a great band! That song was written many years ago before we even knew Davey. We're all friends with him. [Pat and Chris Head]

    General CommentPunk in drublic says... hehe.. reversed mullet... anyway... yeah, this is a song like, "Drink drank punk" or "captain Anarchy"... I think u should just be yourself COMPLETELY and try not to fall into stereotypes, and if u happen to fall into a punk stereotype, then great for u... it's all about your happiness though...
