Punk Merchandise for all Kids from 0 to 14 years
Punk rock was born in the mid-1970s together with the subculture of punk. Especially in the cities of London and New York the genre was influenced in its early phase. It developed as a sub-genre from rock music and was initially characterised by its simple but fast song structure. Most songs consisted of only three chords and were accordingly easy to play. This made many young musicians interested in punk rock and started their own bands even without much experience.
Punk Rock as a mouthpiece
From the very beginning, punk and social criticism were inseparable. Because music has always been used as a mouthpiece to draw attention to political, social, philosophical or other injustices. Bands like The Ramones, The Clash and The Sex Pistols are considered pioneers of the genre. For them, the mainstream rock music had become too polished and tame, so they were looking for a way to break out.
Over the years, different sub-genres have developed. Bad Religion, for example, mixed punk with hard riffs and thus laid the foundation for many hardcore bands. The Beastie Boys combined hip hop sounds with punk attitude and created a sound that has never been heard before. For all fans of Horror Punk we have cool designs of Misfits in our assortment.
