Punk isn’t what it used to be. With all four Ramones dead, CBGB’s closed for years now, and Green Day albums becoming Broadway musicals, things have changed. There are still some bands that play their version of punk though, some of which you can find on the Warped Tour and if you’re a new fan of the genre, or would like to become one, an Etsy user has created a “Punk Starter Kit” at the low, low price of only $85. What will you get for parting with your hard-earned babysitting cash?
– Bootstrap studded with small (your’re just starting out) 77 cone studs
-Studded bracelet with bondage wring
-Totalitar and Varukers patches
PLUS: List of cool bands to listen to and of attitude and fashion faux pas for your new look.
Well, that’s something. If you want some handmade leather items and some instant punk cred, this is slightly better than Hot Topic. Then again, if HeineBorel‘s leather craftsmanship is as shoddy as their spelling, you might want to think twice about this.
