A Great Music Collection That Includes All the Punk Classics
Punk rock music represents one of the most pivotal turning points in the history or contemporary music. The 60s were a period of immense creativity, dreams and hopes, but it was all starting to fade away. Hard rocking bands became increasingly “polite” or they were over-complicating the music to the point that it did no longer represent the energy and immediacy that young people of the late 70s were looking for. Everything changed when bands such as The Sex Pistols, The Clash or The Ramones embraced raw aesthetics, outrageous antics, and more importantly, a sound that brought rock music back to basics, with simple lyrics and primordial riffs that captured the fascination of listeners who were looking for something more. Punk rock music was extremely simple and direct. Young fans were listening to their favorite punk singles when they finally realized: “hey, I can play this music too!.” Younger bands were born and the original punk wave was followed by hardcore in the 80s, with bands such as Black Flag, Social Distortion or The Misfits, bringing the genre to the max in terms of speed, aggression and attitude. Punk music also merged with pop in a very seamless way, paving the way for bands such as Green Day and Blink-182, who are largely responsible for the punk revival of the 90s and for keeping the flame of the genre alive up to this day. This is a perfect gift mixtape for people who value their self-expression and want to rock out with no compromise!
