This music was very simple and its songs were very short. The ideals are the individualism and chaotics, speaking about the anarchy, the pessimist idea of "There's no future", and a very critic vision of the world. The punk speaks about the anticapitalism, antimilitarism, antifascism, and, in some territories like Euskadi, about the independency. PUNK MUSIC Punk music starts in the 70's in the UK, as a variation of rock music. From this first style, we can appreciate different sub-styles of punk music. HARDCORE PUNK This style was more agressive and faster than the "Standard punk". Some Hardcore Punk bands are the "Dead Kennedys", "The Exploited" and "Black Flags". SKA-PUNK This style was the punk combined with ska, including rapid rhythms and instruments like trombones or trumpets. Bands of ska-punk are Operation Ivy, Rancid, Kortatu and Ska-P. CELTIC PUNK This style is the combination of the punk and the traditional celtic music. This style includes instruments like the irish flutes, accordion and banjo. Bands who play celtic punk are The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. OI! Also called Street punk, it's the "skin punk", a style that's very radical and critic with the governments and the society. Street punk bands are Cockney Rejects, Orreaga 778 and Sham 69.
(Annotation: Skinheads are not all fascists, some of they are anti-fascists.) Sid Vicious (Simon John Ritchie) was born on 10th of May 1957, in London, and he died on 2nd of February 1979, in New York. He was the bassist of the Sex Pistols. He's a punk idol, and a very famous image of this music. When he was young, he and his mother (his father left the family when Sid was a baby) went to live to Ibiza, and Sid lived from the money raised in the sale of drugs at concerts. When he was 16 years old, he returned to England. He became a fan of a group called "Sex Pistols", and years later, he joined them. He died on a party, as a victim of a drug overdose.
