Daily Hawk Punk 

By Alice Castro

Punk music began in the late 60s as an artistic movement, used to express anger, frustration and dissatisfaction against many political, economical and social problems at the time. But It was only in the 70s that the genre started to spread, and bands like The Sex Pistols  and The Clash started to emerge and shape the punk movement by openly criticizing authorities, with hits like ‘Anarchy In The UK’, ‘God Save the Queen’  and ‘White Riot’. During the 80’s punk subgenres stated to rise, such as street puck and hardcore punk.  It also inspired many other music genres to surface, like New Wave, Indie-pop and Post-punk. In the 90’s punk resurface to mainstreen with pop and rock punk, with bands like Green Day, Blink-182 and  My Chemical Romance who also made strong political statements, like the music ‘American Idiot’ from Green Day, that talks about George W. Bush presidency that led the Iraq war following 9/11. Today, punk is resurfacing yet again with singers and bands like Yungbuld and Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) addressing not only political themes, but also focusing more on things like mental disorders, neural chemical addiction and sexuality.
