My friends were all "punk rawk" when I was in college, and i remember being at a punk fest... and someone found out I liked Soul Asylum. I got made fun of terribly, everyone was laughing at me, and then this one punk dude came out of nowhere and said "LEAVE HER ALONE! SOUL ASYLUM IS PUNK AS HELL." lol.
But yeah, I used to get made fun of for it, but I don't really care. I like what i like.
