The term "punk" can be a bit confusing. What are the differences between "thrash," "oi," "hardcore," "emo," "ska," "new wave," "glam" and "old school," all of which-and more-have been used to describe musical splinters of the punk style. Everyone knows what punk rockers look like. They ride skateboards on St. Mark's Place in Manhattan or Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. They lean against walls at your local mall. Everyone's seen them: kids with attitudes, sporting brightly colored mohawks, black leathers, chains and tattoos. You can spot them from across a parking lot. Their message is clear-they're punks. But punk isn't just a look. It's also a widespread subculture and a group of definable musical styles. This music may be best described by first saying what it is not. Punk is usually not funky and it is equally distant from classical music. It's not pretty and it won't sooth an infant like a waltz played on a tiny music box. It is the opposite of these things-it is fast, loud, crude music. This high-energy rock music intends to shock, amaze and disgust the listener by any means possible. Punk music is typified by the pulse-pounding styles of bands such as The Ramones, The Clash, The Sex Pistols and Nirvana. The earliest glimmerings of punk rock began in the late 1960s and early '70s with the emergence of Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. But, the nihilistic anarchy we now call "punk" didn't fully crystallize until the mid I970s, when the "first wave" of punk was in full swing. This first wave began in Manhattan with bands such as The New York Dolls, The Ramones, The Vibrators and The Dead Boys. It quickly spread to London where it became a much stronger force. Some early UK bands were The Sex Pistols, The Jam,The Buzzcocks and The Clash. Other scenes popped up all over the world. Los Angeles was very significant, spawning The Germs, The Circle Jerks, NOFX, X, Black Flag and many others. The L.A. hardcore scene even stayed alive through the metal-soaked I980s, helping to bridge the gap between the first and second waves of punk. The constant touring of first-wavers such as The Ramones, The Clash and 999 also helped to keep punk alive during this, its most difficult period. The second big wave of punk was popularized in Seattle, Washington by Nirvana in 1992.This new punk was aptly named "grunge" and inspired bands in California such as Green Day, The Offspring and Blink 182. Grunge lionized the shoe gazing, flannel clad slackers of the I 990s. It was only a slight variation on '70s punk. The music, though imbued with modern production values retained the same high energy and deliberate amateurism. Grunge brought punks their first American chart-topping successes. Punk grew wildly popular, becoming a large part of the new mainstream. Punk is a powerful force in rock music and pop culture. Its influence is felt everywhere from the cinema to the cyber world, to literature, art and even your own music store or mall. Punk's colorful history is clearly still unfolding, and will continue to shock and amaze us for many years to come. This book explores the role of the electric guitar in that history.
