Let's end the debates.

Converse have just unveiled a new infographic project they put together with Polygraph founder Matt Daniels that answers the question that has tortured PopBuzz ever since we started - who is and isn't punk?

The generator uses data collected from Spotify and YouTube playlists to allow us to search for a band and see what genres they break down into.

So, for example, this is what Green Day look like:
