Martha Stewart Living inspires parents to throw a Punk Rock Inspired Party for their children. Instead of advising parents to hijack the school's photocopier and use ransom-note letters from shoplifted magazines for invites; to get their child's mohawk ready to withstand the "nosh pit" with a fresh shave and white glue; perhaps piercing their cherubic cheeks with a safety pins; or even offering lessons in gobbing on the entertainment, the author suggests serving Spinach Ricotta Skulls and printing the sheet music of your favourite punk song on fondant-covered cupcakes. It's no wonder that the real party is in the comments.

Punk rock parties for kids is nothing new. I went to one in my church basement in 1982. I was twelve. There was spiky hair and skinny ties, and soft drinks. I was the only person who brought any punk rock music--Combat Rock on cassette, which I'd ordered from the Columbia Record Club.

Wow, I'm sorry for you. I went to CBGB a few times growing up and it was always a fucking hole with terrible bands (they were always 'better ten years ago', no matter when you were there, and I suspect it was never good).

Still sad to see it go for the history if nothing else, but it was never anywhere I would willingly actually go to.

I live near Stoke Newington. There has been a shop selling Sex Pistols/Johnny Cash/NWA/(insert cool formative GenX band here) baby onesies on Church Street since time immemorial (or at least 2006).

My guess is that, once they hit adolescence, the kids of hipster parents will individuate themselves by rejecting the whole idea of music-based subcultural identity as a terminally uncool thing-your-stupid-parents-do.

Play Mosh Pit by having the largest child or an older sibling put on some giant boots and a spiked leather jacket do a "stage dive" off the table onto the smallest kids!

Punk Rock Selfie Booth: dress a mannequin as a recently deceased house painter and have all the kids take photos with the dead guy!

Instead of helping the birthday kid blow out the candles, instruct all the attendees to hock a giant gob at him instead!

Get some washable red paint, and make some "glass shards" out of pieces of clear plastic for some fun temporary self-mutilation!

When the party is nearly over, have some friends dressed as cops run in and start smacking everyone around with rubber police batons! LOL! Then lock them in the basement with some big scary dude named "Icepick" until their parents can "bail them out" and give them hell all the way home in the car! Your guests will go home with memories they will never forget!

They put gaffer tape over "Sex Pistols" for the shot. Not "Bollocks." "Sex Pistols."

What did you all expect? Punk is 35 years old - at least. When Punk was new and young, Grease was big, and teenage-mumimor went to Grease-themed parties. There might have been one or two rocker-dads who were offended, but it's totally normal that 35+ year old cultural phenomena are appropriated and transformed for child entertainment.
What I find strange and a little spooky is why young people today would be punks. I enjoyed dressing up in my mum's old clothes for fun and parties, but I would never take on her historical youth culture as my own.

Different trend, same generation - teens reacting to 80's fashion items. There's one kid who pinpoints that if he had seen his parents in the stuff he'd avoid it, but he hadn't, and that helped him give into the fact that he totally now loves it.

I think there's a difference between adopting your parent's historic culture and adopting their ACTUAL culture - meaning, yeah, we may be talking about parents who were ALIVE during the punk era, but odds are they weren't punks themselves, so it's more of an assertion of identity that way. We were talking about 70's fashion in an earlier thread, and about the weird pioneer-era throwback trend that happened- odds are no one in the 70s rocking a Gunne Sax dress actually had a pioneer-era relative still living, so they were free to just pick up the stuff as a mostly blank canvas and project themselves into it.

Same too here -the people adopting punk probably know little about punk itself except that it was "cool and edgy and anarchic and free and stuff", and so they pick it up and project their own selves into it. Having a deeper understanding of punk would probably cause some to have second thoughts.

In the late 1980s, to the left of the stage at CBGBs there was a metal wall locker thingy. On that wall locker was a sticker for some band's new record. It said "18 songs! 40 minutes! 3 chords!"

Yup, I spent the better part of '85-'89 there, and got to watch the rise of Living Colour and more interestingly, Vernon Reid and the Black Rock Coalition. By the late '80s, most of the punk shows worth seeing were at the Ritz anyway (the old Ritz on... was it 34th St?, before it moved uptown to the old Studio 54.)

I used to write for parenting magazines and shopping/clickbait blogs, and I know this writer's practiced tone so well. Enthusiastic without exclamation points; friendly and verging on familiar; and all about serving it up by a deadline without doing $100 work for $10 content. And I look at her profile image, and realize I'm old enough to be her mother, and that she has likely never earned gas money by painting the Exploited logo on leather jackets or put a cigarette out on some guy's neck when he and his friends jumped your crowd in the parking lot of an Elk's lodge after a GBH show, and I remember the adage "Write what you know."

That said, good job in that it's getting lots of clicks and links and thanks for inspiring some brilliant comments. And a record party at our house last night:

mrpeagood's reaction to this article (standing in front of our boring Ikea kitchen cabinets in our expensive Toronto bungalow, while our purple-haired daughter and kitten did I don't know want to know what under the stove.)

What did you all expect? Punk is 35 years old - at least.

That's just it. Punk has long since metastasized in mass culture, and punk themed birthday parties, school dances, proms, etc. have likely been around (to varying degrees of ingenuousness) almost as long punk itself. What's actually bizarre about this isn't the appropriation angle, which is a totally normal thing, but the almost hard to believe slapdashness and lack of sophistication in the execution. Like, it's almost hard to believe anyone at this point could have such a tin ear for the advertised repertoire of punk... The whole exercise has this kind of quality.
