Before 1976: How Punk Became Punk
For those of you that know me, it’s no secret that most of my musical upbringing was a direct result of punk rock. As cliche or as urban outfitters of a statement that seems, it’s the substance behind why I picked up a guitar in the first place. Lately, I’ve been diving back into history, taking a look at how a specific genre became where it is today, regardless of how relevant it is.
Seeing as punk rock is still just as pertinent today as it was in the late 1970s, it makes me quite jovial to see the genre expand in such a lovely way. Not many genres can last for such a long time, but the ethos of punk rock is so heavily engrained in the working class of the world, it’ll last for the rest of humanity; at least that’s what I hope for.
Nevertheless, if you’re interested in learning more about punk rock and more specifically, how punk became punk, definitely check out the video above from Trash Theory. As always with videos from this channel, it’s an excellent detailed depiction of the artists that lead up to the era-defining moment in punk music from the late 1970s. Check it out!
