lolz look at all those preppy kids wearing colors! Hey! You're wearing blue-jeans! What do you mean we're conforming to a stereotype in order to be accepted by our peers? You don't get it! No one understands us! Woe!



Seriously, don't concern yourself with knowing the specifics. Do what you like, and stop trying to jam that square peg into the round hole.

Do you mean in terms of music or culture?

If its music: Punk is mostly anti-establishment music. Goth is closely related to punk, but dealing mostly with dark, romantic themes and heavy, somewhat ambient music.

If its culture: they're way different. Goths are people of a Germanic tribe in around the 3rd century AD. Punk culture is something that arouse from punk music, involved all sorts of things like fashion, lifestyle, etc. and only came about with the music in around 1970's to 1980's.

hmmmm... lets see.....


PUNK:

they are those who... have the ATTITUDE
they usually dress loudly.
mixing colors
they are peirced most of the time
coloredhair usually bright colors
they listen to kicky music
fast sang songs or or heavy <--- (THIS IS A METAL THING)


GOTH:

usually associated with black and violet
like EMOs they are quiet.
they are attracted to darkness
I like to think of them as peaceful or serene (ahaha!)
they have that dark spine shivering aura (which makes me feel at peace)
they listen to slow dark chanting music (like those in churches during the renaissance period)
uses chockers
likes crosses (silver)
dark shade of red lipstick
black haired
somehow share some traits with EMO

Oh shet, I hate saying this because it doesn't sound right, I was raised on old school punk. I cringed just now. I guess it depends on how you want to compare it... Musically punk is more raw, its music made by kids, basically garage music, it was an idea that anybody could play music and could put a message behind it, you can take two examples of punk and compare for yourselves... The Ramones and Sex Pistols, yea I know its cliche but they're the fathers of Punk, its true that iggy pop was around before that but that wasn't really PUNK (lol more like acid hardcore). There is the rebellious aspect of it mostly comprised of angry kids in suburbia, they felt that there was no future so they lived a life of sex, booze, drugs, and of course, PUNK ROCK. Sex Pistols made their music a vessel for their political views, etc. etc. etc. thats just roughly it, but Punk is dead nowdays, idk about these pussy ass bands with their hair in their face, emos and what have yous. NOT PUNK.

Goth from what I observed is more like Industrial/metal music, take trance music but give it a heavier tone and morbid themes.

style wise, Punk is usually D.I.Y... which is DO IT YOURSELF, be thrifty, safety pins and needles for earrings or accessories, work shirts or leather jackets with patches of bands that you support, possibly an anarchy sign to show your political stance, even something like anti-swastiks and pins and stickers patching up your jeans. Of course chains and spikes, which were originally used for self defence (back in the day)... good god I feel old.

Goth is like vampire shit, eyeshadow, lipstick, pasty white powders. High heel boots, spikes and S&M gear.

Hopefully this draws a clear line between the two, obviously I am biased towards the punk side, since I can take from my experiences. last show I went to my old friend told me that we're fossils, he said sarcastically, "Goth is the new Punk..." and i told him to get the fuck out, then i looked around, low and behold, kids with long hair all in their faces (Go to hell danzig for your stupid influence, Devilock bullshit) high heel boots, 20 million braceletts on one arm, neon colored accesories... eyeshadow, lipstick, GOOD GOD... sorry, I am just reflecting on the good old days.

The typical punk look is a mohawk and a couple piercings and goth is normally all black.
Goth kids are just morbid people who aren't emo. They try to be non-conformists but if any of you have seen South Park its actually quite a realistic example of them...
Punk kids are normally the ones who try to be rebels and dress like they're poor(ragged shirts, ripped jeans, etc.)

Goths are more quiet, anti-social and they believe in mystical things like magic and vampires.
Punks are pretty much loud and kick asses whenever they want.

Honestly, I don't get what the big deal is about it with clothes, they can wear whatever they want, we can wear whatever we want. Sometimes I really wonder why there are sterotypes anyway.

Punks are those who listen to punk music. and goths are those who listen to goth music. Its a shame and all of you are only viewing of the outside difference whether than the inside. Goths listen to music like The cure (great band by the way) and punks (I know more punk music than goth) listen to the ramones, black flag, circle jerks, germs, the exploited, etc. You can be a state of mind punk where there is full out rebellion, where the sense of fashion punks are thrown away. (watch SLC Punks! to understand) and goths can simply just listen to the music. There are many people out there that think jrock is goth, but its not. its just jrock. punk music org. in mid 1970s and goth music org. in 1980s. sharpen up on your subculture history folks. -_-

i think punk is a bit optimistic while goth is a pessimist.
