Punk Buddhists


A month ago, NPR ran a radio story about punk music and Buddhism:

What does punk rock have to do with Buddhism? “There’s a disdain for authority. There’s a strong sense that the individual is responsible for herself or for himself,” says Brad Warner, a bona fide punk rocker and ordained Zen master.

The former bassist of Ohio-based punk rock band Zero Defex is also the author of two books on the subject: Sit Down and Shut Up, which promises “Punk Rock commentaries on Buddha, God, truth, sex, death,” and Hardcore Zen, which explores Buddhism and punk’s overlapping approaches to rebellion.
