Let These Classics Show You How To Be Punk

All of New York seems to be pretty heavy on the punk with the arrival of Punk: Chaos To Couture at the MET — which finally opens today. And after we saw the offerings on the red carpet this Monday, plus the awkwardly odd comments celebrities gave as their favorite moments/songs from punk, we took to thinking: Maybe we need a little extra fashion inspiration? Sure, we get the popular references: CBGB and The Ramones, The Sex Pistols and Anarchy in the U.K., but what about the movies that shaped the scene?
Some of the best examples of what it meant to be punk rock came from indie films that morphed into cult classic or B-movies that were unearthed by later generations. Here are some of our sartorial favorites. Oh, and before anyone takes away our punk cred, we skipped out on docs: We love both The Decline Of Western Civilization and The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle — see them immediately if you haven't — but we stuck to the scripts only.
