Greg: "Punk is not about looking cool. It is not about being popular. It is a heartfelt movement of relevant music that comes from determined musicians who question the prevailing dogma". "A 16 year old girl from an affluent religious family who shows up to church with her green mohawk and FUCK JESUS shirt is punk. But so is a 42 year old biology professor who claims that Charles Darwin's ideas were wrong. These people have never heard of nor met each other, and yet what links them is their challenge to institutions and to dogmatic thinking. Whether this is genetic or learned is unknown. But I feel a kinship with everyone who shares these traits."
