Steampunk?

It seems to me unfortunate that Mr. Jeter chose to include the term "punk" in his description of Victorian futurism. A great many people define the word "punk" as a brief music and fashion subculture, rather than "an aggressive/wild young person", and because of this we have the whole faction of Steampunks with mohawks, shredded hose, underwear as outerwear, and so on. While there is nothing wrong with this interpretation, I cringe when people wax enthusiastic over defending the "punk" in Steampunk. To me, the word "steampunk" stands alone. If we're going to break it down into its constituent parts, then I have visions of Sid Vicious piloting the African Queen.

At any rate, debates over whether we should delve into Steam Rap or Steam Hip Hop leave me utterly cold. We already have pop "steam music" in the likes of Abney Park and others, and that's fine by me. I'm happy with the extant music of the 19th century and early 20th century, which seems far more appropriate to adopt as a mood-enhancing background texture.

Anyhoo, that's my two farthings.

How terribly lovely of you to say madam- and i agree with you. apart from doing it for fun, there's little need for additional labels (steam rap, chap hop and all the rest). i for one, love being able to put myself in the same genre as something like abney park even though we only have the tenuous link fo steampunk- it sums up everything that is right about this strange, steamy thing that we are all into.

love
