Punk rock has a special place in music history. Partly rock music in its simplest, purist form, and partly a redefining genre, punk continues to impact everything from instrumentation to clothing.


Since the late 1970s, the punk movement began to buck the trends of mainstream rock, shortening song lengths, stripping down instrumentation and injecting political discourse into the music scene. Punk is more than a subculture, more than music and expressing your inner punk is a way of life.
