What factors influenced punk?
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.
