Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
What exactly is the definition of Honky Tonk?
- never been able to figure it out

A: Dear figuring out,

Check out this Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honky_tonk.

Seems to explain it all fairly well. Basically, there are several definitions for Honky Tonk. It's been used to describe at least two kinds of music, and prior to that, it referred to bars that catered to middle class workers. Usually it implies something rather rough and rowdy.
