It's far from true, but there are people who won't be convinced of that. It's like the whole one bad apple ruining the bunch metaphor.
MFM's a poseur dick on a stick. Urban my ass. Look him up on wikipedia. $15 says he wrote that article himself.
EDIT: A punk is a punk, plain and simple.
As for the counter-culture thing, it's a load of BS. Snowboarding's about as counter culture as Katie Couric.
