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).

Role Models Are there any role models left for young people in 1996? When we’re dealing with a past that didn’t consist of high-tech stalking toys, and rude gossip hunger, it makes you wonder if there really were any worthy role models to begin with. It all boils down to the concept of human nature; nobody’s perfect. Or perhaps trashing high figures in society is just media ‘fashion’ for 1996. Who knows? in ‘98, star-bashing won’t be cutting-edge style anymore, so reporters, and journalists woul

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. I guess I identif

Revolution Girl-style Now! Revolution Girl-Style Now! Riot Grrrls were originally born out of the “Punk” scene where rebellion was expressed in attitude, appearance, style, and music.
