Movement of disaffected youth of the late l970s, manifesting itself in fashions and music designed to shock or intimidate. Punk rock began in the uk and stressed aggressive performance within a three-chord, three-minute format, as exemplified by the Sex Pistols.
Ostensibly a rejection of everything that had gone before, punk rock drew on more than a decade of us garage bands; reggae and rockabilly were also important influences on, for example, the Clash, the most successful British punk band. The punk movement brought more women into rock (for example, the Slits 1977–82) and was antiracist and antiestablishment. The musical limitations imposed by its insistence on amateurism and provoking outrage contributed to the decline of punk rock, but aspects live on in hardcore punk and grunge.
