Punk rock

  • punk rock (or simply punk) is a music genre that emerged in the mid-1970s. rooted in 1960s garage rock, punk bands rejected the perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. they typically produced short, fast-paced songs with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. punk embraces a diy ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through independent record labels.

    the term "punk rock" was first used by american rock critics in the early 1970s to describe 1960s garage bands and certain subsequent acts they perceived as stylistic inheritors. when the movement now bearing the name developed from 1974 to 1976, acts such as television, patti smith, and the ramones in new york city; the sex pistols, the clash, and the damned in london; and the saints in brisbane formed its vanguard. as 1977 approached, punk became a major cultural phenomenon in the uk. it spawned a punk subculture expressing youthful rebellion through distinctive styles of clothing and adornment (such as deliberately offensive t-shirts, leather jackets, studded or spiked bands and jewelry, safety pins, and bondage and s&m clothes) and a variety of anti-authoritarian ideologies.

    in 1977, the influence of the music and subculture became more pervasive, spreading worldwide, especially in england. it took root in a wide range of local scenes that often rejected affiliation with the mainstream. in the late 1970s, punk experienced a second wave as new acts that were not active during its formative years adopted the style. by the early 1980s, faster and more aggressive subgenres such as hardcore punk (e.g. minor threat), street punk (e.g. the exploited), and anarcho-punk (e.g. crass) became the predominant modes of punk rock. musicians identifying with or inspired by punk also pursued other musical directions, giving rise to spinoffs such as post-punk, new wave, and later indie pop, alternative rock, and noise rock. by the 1990s, punk re-emerged into the mainstream with the success of punk rock and pop punk bands such as green day, rancid, the offspring, and blink-182.
