Punk
Punk
rock (or "punk") is a rock music genre that developed in the mid-1970s in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as "proto-punk" music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. Punk

embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through independent record labels and other informal channels.
