The Formation and Development of Punk Rock
When the word “Punk” is thrown around in conversation it usually is interpreted differently by different people. A general definition of punk rock typically associates it with extremely loud noises, unorthodox fashion style, and often offends the people who hear it. This is not necessarily all true. Yes punk rock is loud and it may offend people, but it does have a purpose and conveys its own meaning. Punk formed and developed as a reaction against oppressive figures of authority and as a musical and social outlet for teens that strayed away from the mainstream.
Punk rock music has an extensive history. “While punk’s anti-authoritarian and rebellious imagery has its antecedents in both the 50s and 60s, the music itself was very much a product of its environment and decade - the 70s” (encyclopedia). The attitude of punk has been around almost twenty years before the music and the music was able to communicate the messages of athese rebellious teenagers. The roots of punk are disputed constantly. Some believe it started in U.K., while others claim it started in New York City. Regardless of where punk started it still has the same foundation anywhere in the world. John Savage brilliantly explains this concept of punk in Pre-Punk Rock:

Strakhov 2
In fact, what became known as Punk during 1975 and 1976 had been floating around in various different guises in several cities during the previous few years: New York, Cleveland, Paris, and London to name but four. It was an international sense of boredom with the prevailing culture that saw misfits of all hues go back to maudit, maladjusted noise and try it on for size. Throw it at the wall, fuck you all: life stinks, it's shit, I don't care, oh woah oh. (Savage)

Le Rock

...Le rock est une musique ancienne et nouvelle en même temps. Dans ce qui suit, nous allons vous présenter quelques aspects de l’historie de ce genre musical. Le rock est un genre de musique populaire qui a débuté dans les années 1960. Le genre prend ses racines dans le rock 'n' roll, le rhythm and blues, la country des années 1940 et 1950 ainsi que dans la folk music, le jazz et la musique classique. Il est caractérisé par une mélodie vocale dominante, souvent accompagnée par une (ou plusieurs) guitare électrique, une guitare basse et une batterie, mais peut également être accompagné de synthétiseurs/piano, de cuivres ou d'autres instruments. Pendant la fin des années 1960 et le début des années 1970s, le rock a développé plusieurs sous-genres. Il a été mélangé avec la musique folk, (ce qui donna le folk rock), avec du blues (blues rock) et avec du jazz (jazz-rock fusion). Dans les années 1970, le rock fut influencé par la soul, le funk, et la musique latine. Egalement pendant les années 1970, le rock développa beaucoup de sous-genres comme le soft rock, glam rock, heavy metal, hard rock, progressive rock, et punk rock.

Rock Music

...Introduction    Rock Music, group of related music styles that have dominated popular music in the West since about 1955. Rock music began in the United States, but it has influenced and in turn been shaped by a broad field of cultures and musical traditions, including gospel music, the blues, country-and-western music, classical music (see Music, Western), folk music, electronic music, and the popular music of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (see Worldbeat). In addition to its use as a broad designation, the term rock music commonly refers to music styles after 1959 predominantly influenced by white musicians. Other major rock-music styles include rock and roll (also known as rock 'n' roll), the first genre of the music; and rhythm-and-blues music (R&B), influenced mainly by black American musicians (see African American Music). Each of these major genres encompasses a variety of substyles, such as heavy metal, punk, alternative, and grunge. While innovations in rock music have often occurred in regional centers—such as New York City; Kingston, Jamaica; and Liverpool, England—the influence of rock music is now felt worldwide.   II Musical Elements    The central musical instrument in most kinds of rock music is the electric guitar. Important figures in the history of this instrument include jazz musician Charlie Christian, who in the late 1930s was one of the first to play the amplified guitar as a solo instrument;  Other instruments commonly used in rock music......

He goes by the name Dwayne Johnson, calls himself the “People’s Champion” and otherwise known as “The Rock.” Other than having the pretty face that Hollywood was looking for, The Rock had to go through many steps as an “actor” before he became well known.

Rock Music

...Shosanna Spill Tricia Swoope ENG 112 03 July 2010 Rock Music Rock is a popular form of music that has evolved over the past couple of decades starting in the 1950s until present day. Rock music has been known to be used as a form of expression over the years. Despite its sometimes negative and defiant lyrics, rock is a form of art that allows one to release his/her feelings through singing in an expressive tone. Later styles of heavy rock music in the 1990s, such as grunge, the typical example being Seattle's Nirvana, show influences of heavy metal but are typically not labelled sub-genres of heavy metal, as opposed to thrash metal and glam metal. The general absence of virtuosic guitar solos is perhaps one reason grunge bands haven't been considered heavy metal bands. Another key artist during this time was Megadeth, which combined the relentless, speedy thrash metal riffs with the fancy guitar soloing of speed metal like Judas Priest.     Rock-n-Roll has never just been music. Heavy metal, Rhythm & Blues, Art Rock, New Wave, and the rest may be primary styles or genres but as sub-categories of rock, or rockin’ roll they do not cumulatively add up to the whole. Rock n’ Roll is a movement, a lifestyle, in many ways a belief system and all that Rock n Roll is today it owes to history: two years, no more than three when the fabric of American popular culture was torn apart and rewoven, and a new era explosively began. Rock n Roll started with slavery. To understand......

Who Invented Rock and Roll?

...History of Rock and Roll Who invented rock and roll? Well, the answer is nobody. Rock music is the innovation and evolution of many different types of music from a wide variety of groups of people. No one planned rock and roll, and it took over a great deal of American culture and revolutionized popular music. Rock and roll was influenced by African American music as well as white American styles. Since the introduction of minstrel shows in America in 1840, people have created and developed many other kinds of music. Mostly originated from African Americans, swing, blues, and jazz music was an early beginning to rock music. Many musical qualities were brought with African slaves into America. Some of the qualities include improvisation, “call and response” singing, and a dynamic rhythm. They created spiritual music and blues, which later evolved into what we know today as gospel music and “rhythm and blues.” White American music is based on of folk-style songs, mostly ballads in small bands of musical instruments. At the start of the 20th century, these folk style songs became referred to as hillbilly music. The transition to country-western music began with singers like Jimmie Rodgers and Gene Autry. After World War II, soldiers returning home wanted to feel at home again. This started the era of playing music on the radio, with programs such as Grand Ole Opry, which still runs today. This genre of music used guitars, Hawaiian guitar and drums on occasion to create a......

...Miranda Rhodes Professor Whelan English 102 Sec A October 17, 2010 1970s Punk subculture Vs. Mainstreaming of Punk Today In the 1970’s the punk subculture evolved and shocked the world. They flaunted their anti-conforming and anti-government beliefs. Punks everywhere stood their ground, and made it known to the world what they deeply believed in. In the decade since the punk revolution, they have become common in the realm of society. In comparison to the original years of the punk subculture, so many aspects of have changed to make it an ordinary part of the mainstream of society. Music has always been the soul of what defines a punk. In the beginning, the new and thriving bands were the Sex Pistols and Clash. Today, popular punk bands like Good Charlotte and Green Day have kept punk rock music popular. Nowadays, it is familiar to see woman members of punk, a punk living in the suburbs, going to college, or establishing a career. In the past, advocating for their future was not a goal for the punk community, but today that has all changed. In punk history, many of its ideologies were counterproductive and certain ideologies left punks believing they did not have any hope for a promising future. Today, some members have established positive outlooks on their futures, and this has opened the door to positive pathways for some. However, many characteristics of punk have remained consistently the same. Punks’ ever evolving music industry, their rapidly growing diverse......

...compétences. On est entrain de basculer d'un système de qualification a un système de compétence. La formation ou développement des compétences devient donc un outils très important chez les entreprises et chez la société aussi. Parce que c'est pas seulement les entreprises qui font la formation et développe les compétences de leurs employés mais le gouvernement aussi fait partie prenante. Les entreprises capitaliste d'aujourd'hui s'intéressent moins au sociale, elles n'investissent pas dans des formations qui peuvent être bénéfique aux travailleurs mais va pas avoir un retour pour l'entreprise. Cela nous emmène a conclure que les entreprises capitalistes investissent dans des formations spécialisées ou spécifiques, comme ca l'employé est formé selon les critères du poste ou des postes qu'il occupe dans une entreprise donnée, or cette formation ne lui sera bénéfique que pour le poste qu'il occupe et pour l'entreprise qui travaille avec. Cette formation spécialisée ne se trouve pas chez les concurrents de l'entreprise et puis cette formation décourage les employés a quitter l'entreprise. Pendant que les entreprises optent pour la formation spécialisée, le gouvernement quand a lui a recours a la formation générale. Le gouvernement dépense des sommes intéressantes dans le but de développer les compétences de ces citoyens afin de couvrir leurs lacunes et les leurs donner une formation initiale et fondamentale qui leurs permettra de répondre aux exigences des employeurs aux......

...A. The Erie Canal helped New York City establish its trade position and develop into the world's dominant commercial center. Some caution attributing New York's success and development to the construction of the canal, while others argue that it "played a most important role in the commercial development of the State of New York and probably more than any other influence contributed to the establishment of New York City as the chief port of entry of the United States. B. Western New York grew exponentially due to the canal, which "spurred economic diversification" and attracted new business and industry. Proximity to the canal reduced costs and manufacturing in the western part of the state increased by 262% between 1820 and 1840. As towns emerged along the Erie Canal, they brought business, agriculture and industry to the previously unsettled western New York region. Rochester, which had built its first frame house only five years before canal construction began, established itself as the Flour City and developed an industrial center. Buffalo, previously a small trading post, became a western boomtown, attracting a branch of the United States National Bank and becoming the final stop for individuals immigrating to the Old Northwest as a part of the Big Push. C. The Old Northwest had been cleared for settlement by the War of 1812 when American victory on the Great Lakes gave the nation control of an unparalleled system of waterways, commercial access to the west......

Punk Movement

...POPMUS 305 The Punk movement as a reaction to stagnant music scene of the 70s Ivan Stevanovic 3461726 The Punk movement is often seen as a reaction to what was regarded as a blown up and stagnant, self-indulging music scene in the mid-70s. In wider perspective, it is considered not merely as a music genre, but more as a complex mixture of social, cultural, rebellious upheaval of the marginal, disillusioned young white generation, first in the US and UK and then in the rest of the western world. This essay will try to explore these statements and find out whether any of the two can be considered as the only cause for the emergence of punk. MUSIC INFLUENCES AND BACKGROUND One would say that any form of modern music in its initial phase is a protest, by default. That could be supported by numerous examples throughout the music history when rebellious young artists were crossing the boundaries of the conventional music genres and styles and often rejected from the music establishment. The stylistic music origins of punk could be found in second half of the twentieth century. First it was rock’n’roll of the fifties that shook the post war society with its wild rhythms and raw cords played on electric guitars amplified to produce more “noise”. The other influences were R&B, country and rockabilly and in the 60s many sub-genres that emerged on the rock music scene like: garage rock, frat rock, psychedelic rock, pub rock, glam rock, and proto-punk. Although its......
