Transcript of The American Punk Rock Movement: From the 1970's On

The Movement, the Music, the Fashion, the Lifestyle PUNK ROCK Developmental Period North America The First American Wave of punk happened in New York. The start of the punk movement could be traced back to 1960's trash culture, or the belief that modern society would be the world's downfall. The punk scene then started gathering around the CBGB club in lower Manhattan. One notable band who became well known because of that club was The Ramones, who made their start on August 6, 1974, their first gig. Origin of "Punk" Fashion Males' Fashion Footwear that were common in the 1980's punk scene included Dr. Martens boots, motorcycle boots and combat boots. Oftentimes, chains or studded leather bands were worn on black jeans or jeans that were sometimes dirty, torn or splattered with bleach. tartan kilts or skirts were commonly worn. Leather skirts became a popular item for female punks. Heavy chains were sometimes used as belts. Bullet belts, and studded belts were also really common. Some punks would buy T-shirts or plaid flannel shirts and write political slogans, band names or other punk-related phrases on them with marker. Created in the 1970's

Punk Lifestyle A lot of "punks" were young, and meshed with the views of anarchy and disestablishmentarianism that were a curbstone in early punk music. Punks were very expressive, and were often aggressors in fights with the police, or other punks. But although this was a fact, many punks recieved a bad rap for so-called displays of violence, which was in reality, a part of punk concerts called "moshing", in which everyone lets loose, all in the heat of the moment.
