An Ode to Punk Chicks

Punk Rock Picnic 2012

Behold our ode to the eye-catching ladies found at Orange County's punk shows (with some rockabilly and psychobilly lassies thrown in for good measure). We love punk chicks because they're tough, they're rowdy and an all around good time. Tell us why you love punk gals in the comments!

This exchange seems appropriate...

Duke: The lights are growing dim Otto. I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.

Otto: That's bullshit. You're a white suburban punk just like me.

Duke: Yeah, but it still hurts. 

Oddly nostalgic now, anyone know where I can get some plain wrap beer?

Jello Biafra is rolling over in his grave. This is cabaret for charlatans at it's finest.

I'm from Estonia, where the punk movement was extremely strong cause of the f-ing russians in the 80s. And I have to say that this just seems like pretentious bunch. They're guys who seem to be ''living the life''. But I'm used to seeing punk as a far more serious movement, and part of the movement WAS being a rebel, you went against authorities. Or punk bands for example, worked under the disguise of something else (Because punk was banned by russians.). And to make music videos/records, the bands needed to travel to Finland because the russians owned the music studios in Estonia. But it wasn't being a rebel to BE a rebel. The tongue thing that they did was just a pretentious shit. And I don't think I'll ever approve of the

For example, punk in estonia was more about the message than being rock. Look for ''Vennaskond Insener Garini Hüperbolid lyrics'' on youtube (The song was made after we managed to free ourselves from the russians, but it still holds a shit ton of symbolism.). That song had a fucking meaning and the music was just to give it out. Punk rock movement isn't the same as punk, hence I think the ''punk'' in the name is unfitting and disgraceful to what was the meaning of it before.


I'm not huge punk fan like I was before, because the times have moved on, and I have a life that i need to be giving my 100% in. But I still feel somewhat involved and this.. F this.

In my day punk had zero to do with 'sexy' and everything to do with attitude and aggression. There were like 10 girls in this that really grasp the concept of punk visually. All the rest seem to be lost IMO. And I was a punk in Fullerton in the early 80's so saw the culture for this area first hand BITD. To each his own though.

Fuck yea to the Punk Rock Chicks. However Tattoos and Piercings are not what punk rock is about. Great chicks got em....i have them, but that doesnt mean im punk rock or not. Its a lifestyle, its the music, its all that and more. There is a huge difference between shopping at hot topic and going thrift store shopping and making your own shit!!  hot topic is so far far far from punk rock. Anyways im rambling... oi to the true punk rockers.

@geenius3ab Punk was not banned by russians, you nazi freak. Russians had their punk, and people listen to russian punk of 80's till now with the same pleasure.

@Rose666 You may be rambling, but you're right. It's not about what you look like. In fact, or should I say, in my humble opinion, people try too hard to fit the uniform. Even I did, and I was in the thick of it in the early 80s and onwards. When tattooing, facial piercings and unusual hair stylings became something you purchased at the mall and even rugby players were doing it, I removed my 30 piercings, covered my tattoos, and let my hair go natural.

@Tommy Thomas  I am a punk "woman" of fifty. In fact, our generation of punks loathed the term "chicks" or any other anti-female terminology, as much as we loathed the terms, "nigger" or "queer". And yeah, I know gays and people of African decent use these terms themselves but that's a different discussion.

@Tommy Thomas y'know, we're constantly ragging on what "these chicks" will look like in their 50s and forget about the guys.  I'm in my 50s and, admittedly, look nothing like my wannabe punk self of 30+ years ago.  of course, I was too chickenshit to get tats or piercings.
