It was started in 1976 with the emergence of the Sex Pistols along with the Damned, the Stranglers and The Clash who were playing venues in and around London for most of that year before signing to various music labels Late 1976 early 1977. UK Punk Rock had it's roots initially in American bands such as the Ramones, The New York Dolls, Patti Smith, Blondie and Television. But the UK punk Rock explosion was a uniquely English affair that spawned many bands to emerge from it's outset such as The Buzzcocks, Sham 69, UK Subs and X-ray Spex who were directly influenced by the Sex Pistols famous Gigs, The Stranglers would go on to influence bands such as Joy Division and later U2. Whilst The Clash would take America by Storm and would influence bands on a far wider scale such as Oasis and the Stone Roses.

Punk Rock started in England right after the future members of the Sex Pistols and the Clash saw the Ramones' British tour in 1976; it all came from the Ramones, the first real Punk band (although the British tend to sweep this under the rug!). Dee Dee Ramone was Sid Vicious's idol, and a close friend.
