I'm probably the only one lol.. but does anyone else listen to punk?

For those that don't know what punk is here's a brief history:

History
Punk, since the mid-1970s, has been a movement of shock, rebellion and discontent. As time has progressed, punk has become an overt socio-political movement for some who identify themselves as punks. Bands like Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, Crass, Conflict, Subhumans and many others helped to contribute to this ideological climate. In their lyrics, these bands expressed serious discontent with the systems and institutions that organize and control the world. They also offered analysis and potential solutions to the world's problems. This spirit is active to this day in punk music and has matured and expanded in its range.


Some examples

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

I honestly don't even know what qualifies as punk anymore these days. Some that I think might still be that I listen to and have listened to in the past are Bad Religion, NoFX, Lagwagon, Guttermouth, Millencolin, Pennywise, Sex Pistols, and a few others. Sometimes I just need to listen to some punk, it's fast, it's rocking, sometimes I just need that angry or satirical music and punk is great for that.
