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."

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.
