Punk Rock

Punk rock was used as a criticizing phrase. It was used by critics to describe the garage rock bands all over, and some of the darker psychadelic bands. Patti Smith then joined and made a band with Lenny Kaye. Her group inspired the 70's punk rockers. Later a magazine called Punk emerged and it was dedicated to "The Dictators, The Stooges, New York Dolls, TV reruns and beer." The magazine helped change the meaning of the word. Punk rock took many influences. From the snotty attitude, on- and off-stage violence, aggressive instrumentation, overt sexuality and political confrontation of artists such as The Who, the Rolling Stones, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, The Velvet Underground, Alice Cooper, The Stooges, the MC5, The Deviants, and the New York Dolls to English pub rock scene and even British glam rock and art rock acts of the early 1970s, including David Bowie, Gary Glitter and Roxy Music. Early punk rock also displays influences from other musical genres, including ska, funk, and rockabilly.
