Are they really called "The Punks"?

Post by skaterdude »

In the credits it just says "Punks". Maybe it just means that they're punks, maybe that's not their name.

Um actually it is, In the script I believe in the list of gangs the gang called The Punks are in the list. So they are the Punks

He's right, in the script they're called the Big Time Punks and they're described as wearing 'severe black', obviously their look changed later and for whatever reason they were made to look less like typical Punks.

They are called The Punks. The reason I know this is because I take possession of the game and when you go into the Rumble Mode their name is The Punks. Also, because near the end when you see them it shows that short cutscene of when a new gang appears and their names are Punks. ;)

Yes, but I'm talking about the movie. They look more like farmers than punks. Especially with the old dudes... :D

I ment thear original name in the script. In the movie they where the Punks and if we want to get really technical however originally in the book there was no fight with a gang named the Punks or anything similar to that name

It is somewhat of a puzzle.  All of the other relavant gangs get mentioned by name somewhere along the line.  Well, not the Rogues, but we can read their patches.  Yet nobody says the Punks.  Is there a deleted scene showing Masai's advisor saying something about the punks?
