10 Essential Punk Songs | t.blog

What is punk? Is it a lifestyle, an attitude or simply a musical genre? I don’t know anyone who would say the latter… Many would argue that it can’t be one without the other. In a nutshell: a punk never stops questioning the status quo and with their questioning comes rebellion and a certain attitude against the way the majority behaves and thinks. This can be seen in every aspect of a punk’s life: nonconformist in fashion, hairstyle, manners and language. And let’s not forget the most powerful one: musical style. Punk music, by definition, is quite broad and diverse with its creators always striving to be different and the least conforming (even to a musical genre) as they can! This article talks about 10 songs that simply can’t be missed under the umbrella term “punk”…
