Punk Music And Its History by Samantha Yule

Punk Music is not as fast as how pop genre grows, however it is controversially known as generally listened by crazy teenagers and liberated crowds who are hungry for change. Metallica and Fall Out Boy are just two of the bands that paved the way for liberation and loudness on terms of music today. Earlier bands such as the Sex Pistols and the Scientists were greatly known in the 70's when punk rock was born, following proto-punk genre in the late 1960's. Punk music [] kicked off when Ramones Band piloted the way in the said genre.
The usual themes of punk music are liberation, rebellion and victory. It started off bumpy when bands realize that the masses never really appreciated the roughness of the instrumentals and controversial lyrics of punk music. Punk bands in the United Kingdom failed to win the hearts of listeners in the beginning because of its delusions, depressions and harsh revelations reflected in its wordings. It was not until the 1990's when the UK song enthusiasts finally appreciated the music and made it a mainstream success.

The commencements of liberated songs were often debated between listeners of alternative rock and lovers of ballads. There have been varying different opinions about punk music. Some people state that they are garage tunes; this was when the band called Sonics played without defined musicals, no instrumental standards and lack of conventional music.
In the late 60's more and more bands appeared from nowhere and made their punk music debut, like the Stooges, MC5 and Velvet Underground. This time, lyrics and their image were made even more vulgar and controversial.
In the early 90's, punk music seemed have a revival. However, bands didn't quite have a great start unlike 3 decades back. In the history of punk music, Iggy Pop was deemed to be the godfather of the genre. The punk look is defined as leather jeans and jackets, darkened eyelids and long polished nails, like what punk artists of today portray.
