      1. Punks git cut from corporate soccer teams. i.e. “Johnny refused to wear his JPMorgan uniform to the game last night”

    I’d like to think that every true punk has a rebellious soul in them. You know, they are really just those individuals who start and fuel all Rebellions. They make history. And making history is a dangerous thing that often times gits you cut.

    “Punks Git Cut” eh? The painting on Jay’s website of graffiti being sprayed on a wall reminds me of the 33-year-old Swiss man who just recently got jailed here in Singapore recently for vandalising an MRT train. Picture here: http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Singapore/Story/STIStory_535411.html

    He was jailed for the offence, and when he appealed, his appeal was not only rejected, but his sentence extended: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-08-18/swiss-man-s-jail-term-for-vandalizing-singapore-train-extended.html

    Yes folks. Punks Git Cut. Especially In Singapore.

    Punks Git Cut.

    well, there are multiple possible meanings to this phrase. When i think of the word “punk” I think of either the 80’s in england with huge mohawks and studded jackets, or angry old grandpa’s yelling at little boys who pull pranks on them. “Git” and “Cut” are self-explanitory, as in get cut.

    So, I’m thinking either a death match between two punks, one with a red mohawk and the other with a blue, in a mosh pit at a punk rock concert… Or of an old grandpa chasing a little boy who just pranked him down the road with a butcher knife.

  • Harry

    In the early days of the Stooges, Iggy Pop used to nick himself w/ a a sharp object before going on stage – just a small cut to get his adrenalin pumping. This “ritual” became well known to punk fans and eventually spread to the skate scene. The definition changed over time so that whenever someone did a particularly sick trick, people would say “Punks git cut!” as a way to show props.

    I wish this meant that when you’re at a concert or show that those punks who cut you in line at the bar, bathroom, or will call got cut right back…with a knife. That was a little violent, but doesn’t everyone hate it when you get cut in line by a punk?

  • Alyssa

    I feel like its taken “haters gonna hate” .. and stepped it up a notch… “punks git cut” … taken the passive and made it active. Basically – stand out ma’ way and lemme do my thang… or else. Else = you get shanked.

  • http://www.lukasricharz.com Lukas

    Hi Canada!
    In 2010, we can say that punks are unfortunately cut out of our “healthy” society, so that they loose credibility.
    To be a punk doesn’t mean that you wear boots and mohawk.
    I hope that everyone will behave just a little bit like a punk in his entire life.
    Very nice drawings by the way.

  • Nick

    I’m going to assume this definition comes out of the prison culture. That said, a punk is one who snitches, bitches, cries or generally upsets the prison hierarchy.

    And what do we do to snitches? Stab, shiv, slice, dice and generally hurt them in a cutting fashion.

    Thus, Punks git cut.

  • VINCENT

    a rebelious orca whale who listens to the ramones and the sex pistols. whilst being a badass dj he would often cut up dj mixes to create a blend of hip hop punk. people would then be like , ” shit, punks got cut”. Which soon changed to ” punks git cut” as he dominated the japenese punk hip hop scene. True story.

    Punks Git Cut:

    I think it definately has something to do with punks being rebelious and strong willed. They stand up for what they believe is right and true, and they do everything in their power to make that visible to society. Society doesn’t like change, so what are the going to do to the people that want change? Cut them out of the picture!

    It’s either that orrrrr you say it in the context of frustration…. like….”Fuck off!” “Git the Fuck out” “Punks git cut!”

    Punks Git Cut:
    Punks are emos with a lot less mascara

  • Alex

    “Punk” is smoldering tinder, from the Algonquian for “dust, powder, ashes.”

    “Git” is British slang for bastard, from “beget.”

    “Cut” in glassmaking is to produce a pattern by grinding.

    So “Punks Git Cut,” referring to a person, means “you are ground out of ashes.”

    It refers to the first phase of “ashes to ashes,” implying that the second phase–returning to ashes–won’t be long in coming.

  • Raiko

    it means super cool if you’re teenager, and it means completely retarded if you’re adult.

    example: Shepard Fairey- he claims he’s punk, well, I don’t think so.

  • Nick Francis

    Firsties: isn’t it an adorable phrase?

    It is.

    Seconds (as mentioned above): git (git) – noun – British Slang. A foolish or contemptible person.

    And lastly: “punk gits cut” or punk-gits (plural for punks who maintain, specifically, a contemptibly foolish rebellion or punkness) cut (as in “cut a rug”).

    And so we see, after so much analysis, that this three-word, thee-syllable phrase is describing that all too common jive undertaken by punk-gits, a surly type dance that, undoubtedly, cuts up the dance floor with its hot pizzazz and simmering acrobatics. Punk gits cut, indeed (if you’d’ve seen ‘em, you’d know).

  • Amelia

    “Punks git cut” means that in elementary schools, those little kids whose moms let them get mohawks and listen to their Walkmans nonstop would stand in the lunch line, waiting patiently for their tater tots and refried beans while just a few spots ahead, a little ponytailed girl would slide in line behind her best friend of the week.

    This phrase has become a common saying now, because of how frequently this situation took place. It’s now stated with resignation, meaning “that’s just how it is.”

  • Naomi

    Werriam Mebster would define “punks git cut” as: “the very basis for being ultra gutter and slamming the core. Usage Example: Every now and then Billy and his friends would constantly nag Tim about this un-righteousness.

    Punks Git Cut: A common expression used to explain the consequence of one who commits excessive punkery. Such as excessive amounts of Tom foolery and heinous/unnecessary comments. Example of the consequence in a scenario: Two boys are rough housing in line at your local super market and bump you from behind which leads to you dropping a carton of eggs. After such an act, the culprits will try to flee the crime scence and before they get the chance you grab them by their collars and whisper “Punks git cut” then the speaker deals 2-7 quick jabs with a preferably blunt blade to either the small of the back or the jugular.

      punks, or rather the lower rung of inmates who allow their anuses to be penetrated by human male phalluses (phalli?) in turn for cigarettes, will often make small incisions into their rectums so that they can more easily be stretched to accommodate for barterers with a greater mirth of loin.

    Punks Git Cut:

    Punks may be more at risk of injuries such as paper cuts and pin pricks as it is well known that punks often spend their time writing to “the man” to kindly please cease from their actions upon which affects the society as a whole, or in laymen term: FUCK OFF. Punks are also often pricked by their multiple safety pins adorned throughout their apparel. Their skin, protected by black leather and denim is very sensitive and pale, often more susceptible to abrasions or lacerations.

  • Travis

    Punks Git Cut.

    Lets break down the phrase to evoke its true meaning.

    “Punk” can describe a specific cliche style typically categorized as “a rude disembarkation from contemporary society.” or “rebelrouser.” In this case, a punk most likely refers to someone in opposition to the speaker using the term, as in, “Quit hassling me, you punk”

    “Git” is a celebrated misspelled colloquial that is often associated with lower-class and uneducated people.

    “Cut” implies stabbing. or the chiseled affect working out has on the human body. Typically, the latter doesn’t apply here. Or does it?…

    Phonetically “Punks Git Cut” is a hodgepodge of tough-guy bravado that is more of a “beware of dog” sign then a empty threat. Simply put: if you are hassling the user of this saying, watch out, as you are about to be physically impaired.

    Punks-Git-Cut (puhn-kas gei-tah cah-tah)

    Coined by Jay Howell, this phrase is referred to punks as mainstream culture portraying a negative outlook upon them. Their lifestyles and beliefs interfere with the main’s and there becomes an array of unfortunate clashes’ between the two separate halves. While many argue this term is just utter blabber from cultural anarchism, the term speaks for itself substantially.

    Jay went to pick up a pencil, but a person nearby picked it up before him and broke the lead. That goes to show, punks git cut.

    hatred, ongoing revenge, jealousy, artistic expressionists, fun, negativity, bad portrayal, obstructed culture

    I think Punks Git Cut means something over the top ironic, for example: While I was living in Mexico City I was stabbed on the street by a hobo that was I think was high on paint thinner. Not that ironic…yet! After I was stabbed I pushed the hobo down and saw him drop the weapon. To my surprise I saw that it was a rusty old potato peeler. How is this ironic? I’m from Idaho and my last name is Schenk (Shank).

    Follow me here:

    In this case, ‘punk’ refers to that stick, something like insence, the one they give kids on the Fourth of July when the parents want to keep their lighter on the porch where they’re smoking. Jay probably carried his punk out onto the street with a paper bag full of 5-for-1 fireworks, probably resented the fact that his dad didn’t trust him with the lighter. Perhaps, a few times he went inside to “go to the bathroom”, sneaking back out with pair of scissors, no, a knife in his pocket. He’d light a few black cats, maybe a busy bee or two, then cut the punk maybe an inch under the glowing ember. He’d walk back from the unlit street to the unlit porch and interupt the adults with, “Dad, it went out.” Grumbling, his dad would reach into his pocket for the lighter and light the punk again. Back out on the street he’d light a few crackers, and then, again, he’d slice the punk. After a few of these, dad grumbling and reaching into his pocket or to the windowsill, the lighter would finally be his, the satisfying shhhck shhhhck under his thumb better than the cracking black cats near the mailbox.

    A few year later, maybe in college, maybe at work, maybe during his regular Friday nights at the Sizzler, Jay picked up punk the way most people do, using it for in place of ‘jerk’ or ‘lowlife’. The association took over unperceptively, and once, when somebody got in the way of something Jay wanted, a lover, a job, a sandwich, he whispered, “Ah hell no. Punks git cut.”

    This should only be attempted with an experienced or just gifted female. Basically the chick gets on her bed in a yoga position and the man approaches her spread legs and grabs her around her lower back while pulling her off the bed. The chick then positions herself in the target zone and goes to town. The man needs to lock his elbows in his hands otherwise he might drop her when the moment cums ;) Cross country runners are generally the best.

    You can try to be different and rebel against the norm but some one is going to try and cut you down. They might not get your idea or your philosophy and try to criticize your point.

    Punks Git Cut:

    It’s a fact of life. It’s the risk that everyone who strives to live boldly and true must face. Because when you stand against the man, whether it be in rocking too hard, being a bit to “real”, not giving a fuck, or giving a fuck, invariably… You’re gonna git cut. And it’s not a matter of if, but when.

    However, simply getting cut does not give you the pleasure or title of punk. Far too many people have tried, gotten cut, and backed back down too mere existence. Punks, on the other hand, git cut again, and again, and again, and come back for more.

    its completely open to the interpretation of the user/recipient
    whether its said to mean ‘if your a punk you WILL get cut’ or ‘if you rebel against the system it will hit you back haarder – dont be afraid of it’
    either way its what ones mother really should have said as you walk out the front door to go and live the rest of your life

    “punks git cut” – i’m guessing, “mess with best; you’ll get shanked.” or “watch yo’self fool!”

    “Punks Git Cut”
    I interpret it as,
    If your a failure…your a failure,
    If your annoying….your annoying…..etc.etc.
    It is what it is.

    The phrase means that punks strive to ‘get’ cut, they just cant pronounce the get part right.
    and this…. http://slicktiger.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/the-slicktiger-guide-to-klapping-gym-boet/ is exactly what they strive for in order to be classified as cut;)
