Punk rock presentation

  1. 1. Punk Rock History • The genre punk rock was developed between 1974-1976 in the United States, originating from rock music. • Punk rock created a scene that rock itself was failing to provide which was rebellion. Punk rock usually consists of political, anti-establishment lyrics or something with underlying meaning. • Many punk bands self produce and distribute their own music through handing out their CD’s to people in streets and putting music up on their own self-made website. • Punk bands tended to stay away from mainstream media, expressing rebellion through anti-establishment beliefs. • As punk was a genre that was supposedly created by people who knew little about the rules of music, individuals in punk bands such as the Ramones were able to break the rules easily. • The genre was quickly adopted by England due to the rate of unemployment rising, many youths found themselves angry, with a sufficient amount of free time to enjoy wasting on forming punk bands. • Due to the wide spreading genre, punk fashion became to emerge. In 1974, shops such as ‘SEX’, owned by Malcom McClaren opened, specialising in clothing that was often associated with the punk movement. • From this Glam punk emanated, a trend which revolved mostly around a particular style of fashion with a protopunk sound, which was adopted by artists such as New York Dolls. The bands style was soon acquired by many other New York bands such as Harlots of 42nd street during the mid 1970s. The band was considered the most influential of the 20 years, inspiring even The Smiths, whose frontman Morrissey organised a reunion for the New York Dolls.
  2. 2. • From the 16th century to the 18th century, the word Punk began to be used to describe gangsters, due to the amount of rebellious youth members that followed the trend. Even William Shakespeare used the word ‘punk’ to describe a male hustler type character. • Considering – this use of the word Punk is fitting considering most of the people who do like rock music are rebellious in their need to express opinions upon society’s wrongs.
  3. 3. Sound • Punk rock bands sound are similar to 1960s garage rock which uses bare musical structures with barred chord and distorted power chords known as a “buzzard drone”. • The usual arrangement for a punk band consists of a drummer, rhythm guitarist, bassist and a lead singer. • Lead singers often shout lyrics instead of singing them, much like in more hardcore versions of punk such as Black Flag. • A particular aspect of Punk as a subgenre that makes it stand out is the political/social issues they usually base songs upon, making lyrics hold importance of a message which many classic rock songs don’t have.
  4. 4. Foundations of Punk • In the early and mid-1960s, garage rock bands became known as where punk originated from. • Popular bands such as ‘The Ramones’ and ‘The Sex Pistols’ are known for their success within the creation of punk, inspiring many other bands to further this genre. • The Electric Circus was a particularly important venue as it was a place where fans of punk music could feel part of a community of similar music taste , fashion and ideologies. • Fans often replicated their favourite bands sense of style which mostly consisted of having no rules and dressing how they wanted. This style soon became street fashion as it was linked to punk which was considered underground music.
  5. 5. Fashion • This often consisted of hair that’s dyed in unnatural ways, including the cut. • Often women and men were seen to wear make-up including eyeliner. • Safety pins and chains were used on grungy clothes, leather jackets were usually decorated with studs and rips and tank tops were usually worn. • Tight skinny (usually black) jeans are worn that are adorned with rips and studs. • Often combat boots such as Dr Martins were worn. • Patches and badges of punk bands were often worn on clothing. • The fashion soon became less of a symbol of rebellion usually connected with lower class, but soon became simply a side spread fashion movement. • Due to its expanding popularity, designers such as Vivienne Westwood adopted the style, and was able to market the clothing range to Punk Rock fans as her partner was singer Malcom McLaren of The Sex Pistols. • To this day punk fashion is still seen on catwalks and the music industry.
  6. 6. Punk Rock Record Labels • There are many successful record labels which sign good rock bands, such as Hopeless Record. • Hopeless records was founded in 1993, signing artists such as The Used and All Time Low. Hopeless records sign many different types of rock music including metal, pop punk, punk rock and alternative rock. • Some artists such as The Misfits, created their own label in which they produced their music with. This was founded in 2002 by Jerry Only of the misfits, and only lasted a year. However, they did sign artists such as Osaka Popstar and JuiceheaD. • Roadrunner records is an American label that signs more hard core metal bands such as Slipknot, The Devil Wears Prada, Avenged Sevenfold and Halestorm.
  7. 7. The Ramones • This American punk rock band formed in New York City in 1974. • Despite their initial limited success, the band was a major influence upon other bands in the UK and the US. • For 22 years the band toured virtually nonstop, playing 2,263 concerts. • As the bands importance became noticed, they were mentioned in popular magazines such as the Rolling Stone, listed as one of the top 100 greatest artists of all time, and the second greatest band by spin magazine. • The Ramones are a particularly important band within the rock movement as they were often cited as the first punk band to form. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K56soYl0U1w
  8. 8. Post Punk • Bands such as Joy Division began to emerge in 1976-77 as part of the punk movement within the UK becoming central post-punk figures. • Post-punk was less upbeat like pop punk or punk rock, having a harsher/darker sound such as Wire and Subway Sect. Yet post-punk still involved anti-establishment elements which relates it to punk. • This type of sound is still popular as bands such as The Vaccines have a similar sound. • This subgenre of punk soon became known as Indie when managers such as Geoff Travis and Rough trade began helping to develop the production and distribution of the music scene helping it to blossom in the mid-1980s.
  9. 9. Movements • Queercore was a movement that developed in the 1990s, a number of punk rock bands such as Pansy Division and Sister George were involved in this particular movement. • The lyrics of these bands often consisted of targeting themes of prejudice, sexual identity, gender identity and individual rights. The movement has continued into the 21st century by festivals such as Queeruption that supports them. • The riot grrl movement is similar in that it also supports of cause. • The particular movement is concerned with feminist concerns and left wing politics in general. Bands such as DIY ethnic were central elements of the scene. • These movements are important due to their message, leading to its popularity and bands forming together such as Sleater Kinney to create a band that both support riot grrl and queercore.
  10. 10. The Sex Pistols • This particular band is significantly popular within the UK as its an English rock band which formed in London in 1975. • The band is most well known for their song “God Save the Queen” as it was linked to the fascist regime becoming highly controversial as it was released on the queens silver Jubilee. • The lyrics “there’s no future in England's dreaming” suggests an assault upon the Queen and her Monarchy. However, the song was really about "You don't write 'God Save The Queen' because you hate the English race. You write a song like that because you love them, and you're fed up with them being mistreated.“ • Many successful punk songs usually include some form controversial view. Even though this song wasn’t meant to of been perceived this way, it received a lot of attention which made it an extremely popular song.
  11. 11. The Kinks • The Kinks were recognised as one of the most influential rock groups of their era in 1963 to 1996. • The music was influenced by a wide range of genres such as rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and county. • Their most well known single is You Really Got Me, written by Ray Davies, topping the charts in the US which led to releasing many other singles which were mostly commercial failures. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=- 2GmzyeeXnQ
  12. 12. Punk? • The concept of what a punk rock band or song is, is constantly changing as many bands are now considered more pop than punk, such as The Killers, Gerard Way and Green Day. • I believe the most important aspect of a punk band is the message which makes the band controversial. I do agree there are more pop forms of punk, though due to the changing music industry, pop has become more popular and therefore change in inevitable. • However, artists such as Nirvana, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins and The Misfits I would consider punk rock in their genre even if sometimes their songs could be considered more pop, they are still alternatives versions of rock such a Punk of Post-Punk.
