Corporate Punk is a pejorative term that comments on corporate businesses attempting to cash in on the punk movement, but either horribly failing or only being able to appeal to those who don't understand punk. Corporate Punk usually consists of expensive clothing, vague or "safe" politics, and watering down the punk movement to make it more palatable to those who usually wouldn't be welcome (homophobes, Nazis, etc.) or to those who wouldn't normally be interested.

Industry Plants[]

Industry Plants refers to either an artist or a band formed through corporations scouting out members to fit a theme while giving off the impression they or the artist was formed naturally and found success independently.

This isn't always negative, but doesn't fit punk values of bands forming to spread a genuine message as industry plants usually have very little control over the types of messages they're allowed to sing about.
