Punk For a Day Day was established to celebrate the long and storied history of Punk Rock. The term “punk rock” was first used by American rock critics in the early 1970s to describe 1960s garage bands and certain subsequent acts. In 1976, punk became a huge thing, especially in the UK, leading to the birth of a subculture. In 1977, the influence of the music and subculture spread worldwide.
Punk rockers built a reputation for rejecting the trappings of mainstream pop music. They embraced raw energy, fast tempos, short song forms, shouted lyrics, and a DIY ("do it yourself") work ethic that allowed them to thrive on the fringes of the music industry.
