The Motion Sick: Mall Punk

I happened upon a new phrase today, but the origins of the phrase were quite old and established.

Mall Punk

The original connotation I discovered the phrase was in a Salon.com article about some new punk bands (scroll down to the 2nd Paragraph for the explanation). Now, I’ve always thought that bands such as Green Day and Blink 182 (at least once they have become culturally relevant) have nothing to do with punk or hardcore that I’m familiar with.. (we’re talking Sex Pistols, The Ramones, early Clash, The Voidoids, etc). However, though my Googling, I found a pretty awesome website, clearly written by some [hopefully] ironic teenager. I could explain it, but he does such a better job.

Go Mall Punk

UPDATE

A friend recently forwarded me an article from The Onion from a few years ago:

Pretty awesome.
