In today’s vastly overcrowded rock scene, punk rock seems to have been pushed to one side to make room for the likes of newer and *ahem* more “original” acts, like Asking Alexandria and 30 Seconds To Mars. Personally, I think this is a travesty, but there’s not much I can do about it. However, one of the things I love about punk rock is its fan base and how loyal they are to the genre. Punk rock fans really do go out of their way to support the newbies in the scene, as well as rocking up to the more established gigs at the age of 50. It’s a life choice and a bloody good one at that.
