It could be said that June 4, 1976, was the day the punk era began, all thanks to an intimate gig put on by The Sex Pistols.

I know some guys who might disagree with that statement:

Or a dozen other bands... the author doesn't know what he's talking about, and so the article is nonsense.

Sybarite: I'd like to express my outrage by name dropping punk bands that preceded the Sex Pistols, starting with the commonly known but rapidly descending into the totally obscure.


There's outrage and then there's pointing out that half a clue (or three minutes using Google) would have invalidated the entire article, without the need to be even remotely obscure. There's was very little point in writing that article. But it's HuffPo, so I guess there's the answer.

I remember being so excited by all this stuff my older sister was a college radio DJ so she got her hands on all this stuff when it came out.

A lot of it didn't hold up so well but at least it got me out of the house to see shows and write angst-ridden three chord crap rock anthems so I'm thankful in that sense.

Obviously "punk era began" is not the same as "kids with no skills started playing"

Does "reading article" means "selling out" in Punkese?

Tat'dGreaser: And it died 37 years ago


I don't know when it died and I don't care to dispute the date it died, but it is dead.

After watching the Ronnie Radke and Falling In Reverse video on Fark, I am pretty sure everyone is pissing on the graves of Joey and Joe and laughing about it at this point.

Yep.

I like those bands more, but favorite punk song is still probably "Sonic Reducer". Well done, Cleveland.

Especially when this is TWO FARKING SENTENCES LATER:

Influenced by The Ramones, The Sex Pistols had made no significant splash in the music industry as of yet

The Sex Pistols ended up being the blueprint for how to exploit something cool the kids were doing for your own gain, right Malcolm McLaren, you farking cock.

Lou Reed made the ultimate Punk album in 1975, a great big old FARK YOU! with Metal Machine Music, a two album opus of horrifying feed back that never ended, the last track was continuous.

He made this album because his record company told him he could do anything he wanted on his last album of the contract, so when it was finished the studio execs listened to it in a meeting and hit the roof but there was nothing they could do about it, they had to release it.

...starting the great era of noise music, leading to great composers like Merzbow or Masonna and a whole genre of greatness.  We had the wonderful punk/noise fusion of the Boredoms which has evolved so beautifully into the noisetrance genre of today.  Fark it, that's a much better conversation than this "who was punk first" one, but if we have to fight that old trope, can I put in a vote for Wagner?  Or Stravinsky's Rite of Spring?

I don't who gets credit for starting it.  I love me some Pistols and Ramones.  Unfortunately, it led to Green Day and Avril Lavigne.

Crap. Went back and listened to it for the first time in years, and they don't say "... and it goes like this!" before launching into the guitar jam. It's something like "... it feels like this," which isn't nearly as funny.

What's interesting is that surf rock, the direct sibling of punk rock, died out in the mid-80s while punk still seems to find an audience today.

You can hear the surf rock roots in this decidedly punk rock song:

I've always liked the idea of punk but hated the fact they didn't even try for a good master. So it all sounds like it was recorded on a Fisher Price boom box.

Anyone with a time machine wanna make the rounds with a Tascam DR-40

tascam.com

Even a crowd recording of the acts on one of these would be better than most of the studio masters
