Just took a listen, I’m getting mixed messages. Is he calling out people that identify as punk rockers for wearing skinhead style gear? So basically the gear without all the baggage associated with the name skinhead? Or is it some sort of satire where he’s speaking from the POV of a skinhead saying “you’re not a skinhead if you don’t do ABCD”I feel like the very act of assigning a subculture label to oneself is a poserish act. It's hard to land on a concrete definition of what a skinhead is without leaving too much wiggle room.
I got sucked into this nonsense for years trying to mask my insecurities with a label and sense of belonging but it's all pretty shallow and I'd say the guy in the song is projecting hard.
