    1. Punk Rock • Dieter • Elwood Fisher III • Tradd Fisher • 4/23/09

    2. Origins • Developed in 1974-1976 in UK and USA • Stemmed from Garage Rock • Reaction against popular culture • “Lowest of the low” term originated with media.

    3. Sound • “Stripped Down” • Distorted guitars playing power chords • Fast, 4/4 Drumming • Bass lines tend to follow guitar • Vocals range from smooth and melodic to screaming, but usually somewhere in the middle • Lyrics may or may not be socially/politically conscious

    4. Ideologies • Politics: All over spectrum, but usually left-wing/ progressive • DIY • “Selling Out” • Straight Edge / Vegan • Authenticity

    5. Popularity • Not Emphasized • Initially popular in USA and UK until 80s • Revival in 90/2000s with pop-punk, ska punk and “emo” • Usually not on major labels- often considered selling out • Has had a dedicated underground following since it's inception

    6. Subgenres • Anarcho- Punk (Crass, Conflict, Rudimentary Peni, Zounds, Flux of Pink Indians, early Chumbawamba) • Hardcore (Minor Threat, Black Flag, Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Hüsker Dü) • Oi!/Street punk (The Business, Angelic Upstarts, The 4-Skins, Cock Sparrer, Cockney Rejects) • Skate Punk (JFA, Agent Orange, RKL, Bad Religion, NOFX, No Use for a Name) • Pop-Punk (Descendents, Screeching Weasel, The Queers, The Mr. T Experience, Bouncing Souls)

    7. Subgenres • Riot Grrl (Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney, Bratmobile, Le Tigre, Witchypoo) • Queercore (Pansy Division, God is my Co-pilot, Fifth Column, PME, Sister George) • Crust Punk (Doom, Amebix, Antisect, Discharge, Nausea) • Ska Punk/Skacore (Operation Ivy, Against All Authority, Choking Victim, Suicide Machines, Rudiments) • Crossover Thrash (Suicidal Tendencies, DRI, Corrosion of Conformity, SS Decontrol)

    10. And of Course Germany! • Originally began in West Germany when Brit punk became popular. • Male (Düsseldorf), PVC (West Berlin), Big Balls and the Great White Idiot (Hamburg) • More New Wave influenced, synth-heavy (Neue Deutsche Welle) bands, but also a backlash • Kreuzberg, original “home” of German punk • Deutschpunk- term for 80s German hardcore political punk • Slime (Hamburg) first deutschpunk band to have albums banned because of politics

    11. More German Punk! • Deutschpunk ran along side American Hardcore • Late 80s saw mostly apolitical “fun punk” bands, similar to American pop-punk • Most bands had mostly German lyrics • Wider audience when singing in English • Not a large punk scene in East Germany, only in “secret” • Bands allowed by government, criticized for cooperating • Several Festivals- Force Attack (Rostock), Punk im Pott (Essen/Oberhausen), Punk and Disorderly (Berlin) • Chaostage in Hanover/Wuppertal no longer takes place because of riots and destruction.
