Playlist | Punk


Born out of proto-punk, the genre of punk was formed in the 70s and built on the rejection of perceived mainstream music, fashion and politics. While numerous bands are tagged under the ‘punk rock’ category – including many riot grrrl acts (which you can listen to here!), we’ve kept this list as simple as possible. So dust off thatĀ Fender Classic Player Baja Tele andĀ ’68 Custom Twin Reverb, set your gain on 5, raise the treble and hey ho, let’s go!
