Three Waves of Ska
Three Waves of Ska Music is one medium through which a generation can express itself. For a generation of suppressed, restless, working-class youths living in early 1960's Jamaica, this voice was a genre of music known as ska. Since its original appearance, ska has resurfaced twice. Ska music has been presented to three generations of fans in three separate waves. Its humble beginnings lead to one of the most influential styles of music present in the world. By 1962, Jamaica was no longer und

Jag satt och bläddrade i en bok om Iran, jag såg Iran på kartan. Det såg ganska stort ut så jag frågade: Mormor vilket är störst Sverige eller Iran? Mormor svarade och sa att Iran nästan är tre gånger så stort som Sverige, för det är c:a 1 650 000 km2 och folkmängden är också mycket större, det är c:a 60

THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK
THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK
THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK Punk rock is a style of music that originated in 1964 in New York City at an underground club called The Dom. This little known club at the time was the catalyst that started punk on the road to what it is today (History Punk). Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols was quoted saying; “Punk was created as a cure for boredom.” (Punk History). He sure has one thing correct; one certainly can not be bored while listening to punk rock.

Punk Rawk! What is it? Right now a bored teenager is listening to a Punk Rock album not really caring that the founding fathers (and mothers) of Punk are probably polishing their Rock n Roll Hall of Fame awards and then placing them carefully on the shelf of the bungalow in a retirement village. Youth, music, and rebellion have always been what Rock 'n' roll was based on. Taking those basics and making the music ten times faster, and the youth ten times more rebellious, and one gets Punk.

Jen For the past five years I have been going to concerts. Time and time again I have seen my favorite band Less Than Jake. Four days after my 16 birthday, my view of them changed forever. That was the day I went from fan to friend of today's most popular punk/ska band. The day started normal, well as normal as a Saturday can be when you're going to a concert. I woke up, watched cartoons, took a shower and then left with my friend Kevin to go to the mall. At the mall we walked around for a ho

This type of music is known as Rock and Roll. Rock and Roll is defined as a popular type of music played on electric instruments and characterized by a strong beat and much repetition. Simply this means music that kids like, music that parents hate, and in some places banned from schools. Although there are many different t

You can rebel as a rapper, a heavy metal headbanger, a punk, a surfer - the usual menu of approved teen rebellions most often explored. It is within these years that the world seems turned against you and you need to find some way to react and cope with all the confusion; to try to find a way to make sense of all the craziness.

SKA! Imagine this: spring break 1962, Jamaica. You are strolling down the streets of Kingston, enjoying the cool sea breeze and the delightful Caribbean climate. The streets are filled with many sounds. Cars' horns honking, children playing, and people shuffling by. There is one sound, however, that rises above all the hustle and bustle. Horns, guitars, organs, drums, emanating from smoke-filled clubs and bar rooms, fill you ears with a lush sound. This is the sound of ska. Ska is an old Jamaica

The three day rock festival that defined an era was only one of many music festivals of the '60s. But Woodstock has come to symbolize, an era of peaceful, free- loving, drug- taking hippie youth, carefree before harsher realities hit... (Layman 40). The Woodstock festival ended a century
