"Punk" is just a marketing tool, guys with guitars and a drum kit playing 3 chords fast and loud has been around since the 1950's.

They year was 1956.Proto-punk Greta "Taffy" McMillan grabs a beat up cigar box, some construction paper, rubber bands and glue making the world's first festive craft lute.With bouncy strings and a dream she went on write two of punk rock's seminal songs the proto-Bowiean freakout "Pretty Pretty Kitty City" and the nihilistic anthem "Don't Read My Diary, Brad."Too punk to actually record said genius, she quickly became bored with the artform. After the legendary "Show and Tell" performance, which was called punk rock's Woodstock. Shefamously tossed her ax into a trash can saying simply, "ICK! This thing is sticky." This simple act of defiance of course led to the tradition of rock groups smashing their instruments in anarchic protest. Pete Townsend once gave direct credit to her stating that Greta was "quite possibly a real perosn."

Oddly enough Los Saicos song Come On was in english and sounded like a guy with an accent trying to be a spic version of Eric Burdon.

I thought Good Charlotte invented punk rock in 2001 or so? Honorable mention to Sum 41. This was all set in motion by the influences of alt-rock pioneers Blink 182.

Was it Miley or Bieber that said they were punk this week?
I was just ten but I remember well when the Sex Pistols were making the evening news for AWing the Queen's Silver Jubilee and not having their presence at No 1 in the singles chart acknowledged. Nothing shocking about that today, but in comparison I don't know if Miley or Bieber are just as confrontational, just as dumb to the moms and dads, and just as 'right place, right time' as the Pistols were.
So maybe Miley and Bieber are punks?

Actually, you could argue that Miley and Bieber are MORE punk than the Sex Pistols: they do what they want without thinking "Oh...if I wear this or do this, will it be 'Punk?' What will everyone think??? Ohh I hope I shock them with my messy appearance!!" constantly.

Thrash Metal > Punk
Thrash Metal = Punk by people who know how to play.

Sewer Trout and Stikky also brought a lot of fun to Gilman St...

Nobody "birthed" punk rock.  It has its origins in the early 60s, and in fact even in a lot of gutbucket blues before that.  It's always been a part of rock and roll and even when the terms were first used they were intended to indicate a "retro" movement.

However, if anyone HAS to have that title, Death Whipser is correct, it is The Stooges.

Rumble may have birthed the power chord and reverb leading directly to hard rock/metal, but punk rock? Nah. That was a little further down the road.

Punk rock was rock 'n' rolls retarded step brother. It was for people who were ugly and with no talent.
It was a reaction to creative good looking talented people who dominated rock for the twenty years prior.

It does have energy, it did have a statement, but who cares?

I think you need to go learn more about Link Wray if you don't think he lived the punk ethos, or that "Rumble," didn't spawn punk 20 years after its release.

I think we can all agree that Avril Lavigne is the most punk of all.

I mean look at the leather spiked bracelet she wore that one time.

Berkeley had some awesome Punk shows down at the Gillman back in the day.
I know that AFI is a local band to their too, while their later stuff is just rock the early like Shut your mouth and open your eyes is def punk.

So, you're not wrong about the Sex Pistols at all, but if you really think that Miley and Bieber *don't* operate that way, then you're swallowing everything the RIAA is feeding you, man...
