So the Cambodians are starting to speak out against the regime, and some are using Punk to do it. Why is that silly, Subs?

Gunny Highway: here to help: Although there have been many concerted efforts to create a "metal/punk/hardcore" crossover (most notably by Scott Ian of Anthrax) metal and punk do still tend to be somewhat segregated. Things are getting better though.

I think GWAR does this nicely, especially their early albums.


Definitely and to go back to the old days when there was outright hostility between the two scenes Motorhead has always been revered by both.

Been watching Motorhead docs too. "Guts and Glory", "Live Fast Die Old" are up on youtube and even the latest one "Lemmy" got uploaded long enough for me to watch it but I'm not sure how long that one lasted.

F*ck I hope I get a chance to meet Lemmy before he goes. He was not looking too good in that last one.

Meh...the metal/punk division is merely rhetorical at this point.  The only people that think there are substantial differences between the two are trendriders looking for something to complain about, or scenesters that don't even have a great impression of what punk or metal really is.

See: Nails, Converge, Trap Them, Trash Talk, Entombed, Bad Brains, MDC, Suicidal Tendencies, Slayer, Napalm Death, Jello Biafra & The Melvins, Metallica, the Misfits, Danzig, Late Rollins-era Black Flag/Rollins band, Jucifer, etc. etc. ad infinitum

Fail to see what's so "silly" about legitimately oppressed peoples using a form of music designed specifically as counterculture protest music.  Similar music scenes have popped up...well, just about everywhere, in the past 35 or so years.  See: metal scene in Botswana, small-yet-thriving punk scene in Nepal.

This is surprising in the slightest? Punk's mainstream popularity may come and go but the bands and the scene haven't gone anywhere over the past 40+ years since the first protopunk bands hit the stages in the UK/US. It is global and every urban center around the world has pile of angry misfits rallying around the "punk" banner. The shiattier the country/area the more hardcore the scenes will be. The reason? Because youthful angst and anger at the systems that control us all will always be there and although there are some epic musical talents within the movement no talent is required to be accepted. Also due to the DIY methods of promotion, production and distribution the entire genre has been forced to develop since the early days the web that has been created amongst these global communities would make the most intuitive and influential record execs and club promoters seem like rank amateurs at their "jobs"... AND it is almost ALL done by young kids who's only experience is knowing how to work a photocopy machine/tape deck/and more recently computers.

You can go to almost any medium sized town (not even city) in the world and find punks.

Love 'em or hate 'em they just aren't going anywhere and at this point are probably the most enduring musical scene the modern world has ever witnessed.
