"How are the Knitters punk rock? How is Woodie Guthrie punk rock? How is Johnny Cash—the most punk-rock person of all time—punk rock? It’s not about clothes, and it’s barely about music. It’s about a revolutionary way of thinking. It’s anti-corporate and human rights-oriented. It’s a social movement more than a musical movement."
— Exene Cervenka, of X and The Knitters
