Before he went punk he was the boy who could fly.

This pretty much sums it up without the schmaltz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoF_a0-7xVQ

It has a really angry chorus:

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

"Dad, I'm punk"
"No kid of mine is punk 10 years after the fact. You'll be a grunge kiddie and like it!"

Quincy did it better(and earlier):
