Punk rock is a type of music that emerged from 1974 to 1976, most prominently in America, England and Australia. It is often simply referred to as "punk".
The sound of punk rock is characterized by many things, including songs that are generally short, very simple harmonically, and fast in tempo that have a harder, heavier sound than classic rock. Punk rock songs also often include lyrics that are anti-establishment or anti-government in theme, or rebellious.
Punk bands often have an image that is all about going against the norm or non-conforming. The stereotypical outfit of a "punk rocker" (meaning someone who listens to punk rock) usually includes things such as a leather jacket, tight jeans, boots, piercings or tatoos, and a crazy hairstyle such as tall spikes or a mohawk.
Some examples of early punk rock bands are The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Damned, The Runaways, The New York Dolls, The Buzzcocks, X-Ray Spex, The Dead Kennedys and The Sex Pistols.
