Understanding the History Behind Punk Rock

Music has a powerful effect that can mold the minds of people and change the course of a culture within a society. In the 20th century, no form of music had a greater impact on the culture like punk rock. Punk rock was more than just a type of music. It was a sound that represented the ideologies of generations of people.

Punk rock began as an artistic movement. It was a way for the young generation of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s to express their frustration with society and with the culture that existed at that time. Over time, the effects of punk rock were felt in things like literature, poetry, movies, television, and art galleries. By the mid-1990’s, punk rock was something that was seen all around the world. Bands that were formed during the 1990’s are household names today. In just the course of a few decades, punk rock went from being a musical sound that defied the traditional idea of what music was, how it should be performed, and the rules that it should follow, and transformed into something that is considered mainstream. Now it is not uncommon to see women wearing punk fishnets on the streets.

Interestingly, for all of the impact that punk rock has had on society, very little has been written about its history. Much of its history is passed down through word-of-mouth. In fact, some would argue that society has as of yet not been able to codify what the word ‘punk’ means. Very little has been done to explore the effect that punk rock music has had on the languages around the world or the social makeup of individuals who form the core of the punk movement. Questions are left unanswered about things such as the role that women play in it, how it influences people who are outside of the culture, what effect it has had on ethnic minorities, and how the media’s perception of punk influenced the way that it is viewed around the world.

Something that is interesting about punk rock music is that although its influence is felt around the world, it is something that is essentially a part of American culture. While it is true that certain bands from Britain did bring sounds to North America that were later incorporated into punk rock, the culture as a whole grew up and came of age in the US. A study of the history of punk rock would reveal a lot about the evolving attitudes of society as a whole within the United States over the past few decades.
