So you think you're truly punk rock
Because you listen to Blink a lot
But have you ever heard of Diesel Boy, Lagwagon or Limp
No I guess not

So now you're wearing our clothes
And you're coming to our shows
A broken wrist and a broken nose are souvenirs from our shows
Poser punk that's what you get

So you think you're truly punk rock
Because you listen to Blink a lot
A broken wrist and a broken nose are souvenirs from our shows
Poser punk that's what you get

    General CommentI totally know what this is about. Nothing against Blink, I like em, but you're not punk just b/c you wear safety pins and shirts that say "punk princess" or whatever and listen to Blink 182 or Sum 41. I mean, I like them both...but it doesn't make you punk. Even Bad Religion doesn't make you punk, your lifestyle and beliefs do. It's more than a style of music, or clothes. It's an entire subculture and belief system. Why can't people see that??? So, this whole "punk is the new trend" thing is getting old really fast.

    General CommentI am not punk, and do not try to pretend I am, but I know exactly what this song is saying. It is so funny to see people who were just wearing preppy clothes now wearing supposed "punk" clothes because it is "in."

    General CommentDude...They do have names...They are called posers...Once they get tired of the music and the clothing, the will go back to whatever they were or whatever is the "new trend".
