CALL FOR PAPERS
Rooted in garage rock and reacting to excessive 70′s rock ballads, Punk rock developed in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. Bands created fast, raw and short music, often featuring political, anti-establishment lyrics and practiced a DIY (do it yourself) ethic, with many bands self-producing their albums, distributing them through informal channels and using guerilla marketing.
By late 1976, Punk began to spread around the globe, taking root in local scenes that tended to reject association with the mainstream. Punk survived for a brief moment in time, morphing into other genres by 1980, however, the legacy of Punk as a lifestyle lives on in a celebration of rebellion, distinctive personal style, DIY ethic and a variety of anti-establishment ideologies.
Papers from all disciplines utilizing all methodologies are welcome.

History of Punk
