Articles about punk rock?

Asked by jackson3 (5points) December 7th, 2008

Can anyone link me to some fantastic articles about the music and culture punk rock music (history, revival, influences, etc)? Extra points if they are an engaging read, though academic articles are appreciated as well.

I don’t know about articles, but The Philosophy of Punk is a great book on the hardcore movement. Most books, documentaries and articles on punk, claim that punk died after the first wave(Sex Pistols, Clash, etc.), but this book covers what those leave out, the Hardcore movement that is still alive today. It goes into depth on the ideals and beliefs of this movement, not just the music. Really good read!

I also have no articles to offer, but a professor of mine had us read Subculture: The Meaning of Style (by Dick Hebdige) when we talked about punk subculture. It’s not just about punks, though. It’s about subculture, with punk being one of the subcultures discussed.
