Punk was born because of a few reasons.

1- Punk was born out of the rebelion against the music scene of

the time. Bands like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols hated the fact

that bands like Simon and Garfunkel were considered rock n


2- Punk bands also refused to dissconect themselves from their

fans and sign with major record labels. That gave punk the raw

sound that we have all come to know and love.

3- Alot of early punk was influenced by 60's garage bands. Also

alot of punk bands grew up listening to bands like the stooges and

the mc5 who were early forms of punk rock.

4- When the Ramones released their first album they influenced

alot of punk bands. Many punk musicians taught themselves to play

by listening to the Ramones, and that gave alot of punk bands their

fast paced loud sound.
