punk

Punk is a rock form characterized by aggressive volume, short, angry vocals, and often bitter political or hopeless emotional content. It was born as a reaction to the bland, corporate rock of the 1970s. Early exponents of punk include Sex Pistols, The Clash, Ramones, and Buzzcocks. Punk's recent revival is attributed to the dominance of sound-alike "alternative" bands.
