Punk rock is an anti-establishment music movement that began about
1975 (although precursors can be found several years earlier), exemplified
by The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Damned, and The Clash. The term is also
used to describe subsequent music scenes that share key characteristics with
those first-generation "punks". The term is sometimes also applied
to the fashions or the irreverent "DIY" ("do it
yourself") attitude associated with this musical movement.
