History of Punk Rock MusicPunk rock music has beginnings that are debated most often by those who tell them and this may be because many different people have different views on exactly what punk rock is and because the foundation of punk music bands are in many places. Punk rock is a term that was used for garage bands in the 60s. These punk music bands would start to play with no instruction and very limited skill at times. Punk Music Bands such as the Sonics started off in this manner in fact. Starting off a music career in this way is a good way to find innovation as those who never learned the rules of music often were not scared to break them. In the late 60‘s some of the best punk music came from bands such as the Stooges and also the MC5 in the Detroit area. In these bands people identified with the rude and many times political delivery of their music. The concerts that these punk music bands put on were often violent and crude that opened the eyes of much of the world of music.
Another band to step onto the scene after the MC5 and the Stooges was the velvet underground who were managed by Andy Warhol. This band produced music that was often seen as just noise for most people but they expanded the definition of music in doing this. Glam Rock was also an influential part of the punk rock music history and found artists such as David Bowie dressing oddly and making loud and often trashy rock music but the first real punk rock scene was in the 70s in New York. Bands such as the Ramones and the Heartbreakers as well as Blondie and Talking Heads played on the regular in the Bowery District and CBGB.
