I've always thought "punk" was rather conservative, "reactionary" even. (I mean the 70's mohawk / safetypin / leatherjacket "punk" style that is still popular today, not the 60's garage band Seeds/Stooges type.)

The Sex Pistols were nicking Chuck Berry licks exactly the same as the Stones were 15 years earlier -- what was "revolutionary" about that?

PiL was certainly a more "radical" group than the Pistols ever were, but I don't know that ya'd call PiL "punk". . . ?
