In the late '80s, the UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC Hardcore scene spawned the StraightEdge movement. This started out with the marking of underage clubgoers with black X's so that they wouldn't be served alcohol, but became a subculture within the subculture of not drinking, smoking or doing drugs; casual sex and eating meat were also frowned upon. The lunatic fringe, Hardliners, went even further. In Europe, Vegan Straight Edge became a norm in the PostHardcore scene during the nineties, alongside support for [[AnimalWrongsGroup ecoterrorism and animal liberation]]. The black-and-green flag was most fervently waved by the US band Earth Crisis. Meanwhile, the DC scene started concentrating on more personal, emotional songs, and became Emotive Hardcore, or Music/{{Emo}} for short.

The styles of these bands focused on a [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth stripped down aesthetic]] and a rejection of establishment thinking for their respective decades and by subverting audience's expectations of music and performance. How they accomplished this varied widely from performer to performer. Music/TheClash focused on political change, Music/SexPistols focused on generally disrupting modern ideas of propriety (as noted by their famed attempt to perform "God Save The Queen" on the Thames during [[BritishRoyalFamily Queen Elizabeth II's]] Silver Jubilee), and Music/GGAllin focused on throwing his shit at people. Music/{{Suicide}} caused audiences to physically assault them ''simply by using a synthesizer.''

Punk rock, as a genre, is decided to have started in the mid-70s. Although preceded by '60s bands such as the Music/MC5, Music/TheStooges, the genre truly began to take root around 1974, with the slow ascendancy of bands such as Music/TheRamones, the Music/NewYorkDolls, and Music/{{Television}} in New York City.

It wasn't until Music/{{Nirvana}} hit it big in the '90s that punk saw a resurgence, as bands such as Music/BadReligion, Music/GreenDay, and Music/{{Rancid}} began coming to the forefront. This led to another problem for most punks, though; at the same time, bands such as Sum 41 and GoodCharlotte were also emerging, who skewed more towards "pop" than "punk" on the "[[PopPunk pop-punk]]" spectrum (yes, it's a subgenre) and represented a commercialization of the genre. Then Hot Topic emerged, and much bile was thrown, as it presented to kids the opportunity to become a rebel by... buying stuff at the mall and not ascribing to any certain philosophy. Hooray. Some social upheaval.

* ProtoPunk: Rock bands whose sound and attitude is a precursor to punk, but otherwise has not much to do with the movement. Examples are Music/TheStooges, Music/{{MC5}} and Music/TheSeeds. * PopPunk, as typified by bands like Music/GreenDay, ScreechingWeasel, Music/ScreechingWeasel, Music/TheRamones and Music/{{Blink 182}}.

* Street punk, very working class and 'laddish' as typified by GBH and (at times) {{Rancid}}. Street punk is also closely related to Oi!, a genre that is almost entirely separated by the speed of the music, with Oi! being the slower of the two. See also UsefulNotes/{{Skinheads}}.

Music/{{Suicide}} caused audiences to physically assault them ''simply by using a synthesizer.'' Punk fashion was mostly popularized by Malcolm [=McLaren=], manager of Music/TheSexPistols, and his girlfriend, fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. Initially based off of the styles of Television bassist Richard Hell (who [=McLaren=] managed at one point and became better known as the frontman for The Voidoids), it focuses on torn T-shirts and jeans, tartan, animal print, leather jackets and other industrious clothes, and unconventional use of [[CasualKink everyday objects with a kinky subtext]], such as leather cuffs and dog collars. Thanks to the popularized [=DIY=] aesthetic, the modification of such clothes with everyday objects (such as chains, spikes, and safety pins) as well as band patches also became popular.

In the late '80s, the UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC Hardcore scene spawned the StraightEdge movement. This started out with the marking of underage clubgoers with black X's so that they wouldn't be served alcohol, but became a subculture within the subculture of not drinking, smoking or doing drugs; casual sex and eating meat were also frowned upon. The lunatic fringe, Hardliners, went even further. In Europe, Vegan Straight Edge became a norm in the {{Post-hardcore}} scene during the nineties, alongside support for [[AnimalWrongsGroup ecoterrorism and animal liberation]]. The black-and-green flag was most fervently waved by the US band Earth Crisis. Meanwhile, the DC scene started concentrating on more personal, emotional songs, and became Emotive Hardcore, or Music/{{Emo}} for short.

Anyway. Back to the history. Like any musical genre that's been around long enough, punk began to stratify around the '80s, when such subgenres as HardcorePunk (focused on loud, fast, and abrasive music) and Oi! (otherwise known as street punk, focusing on the concerns of the working class and often appealing to [[{{UsefulNotes/Skinheads}} skinheads]]) began to develop. By the mid-'80s, punk had kind of lost the cultural zeitgeist, and new genres, such as PostPunk (more personal exploration, less anarchy) and Music/NewWave (more poppy, but still somewhat questioning of modern standards), began to take over. ''Spin'' magazine celebrated punk's 10th anniversary around this time, and famously said, "The worst thing that could happen to punk was having a 10th anniversary."
