Origins of Punk Style
• The TradiTional “Punk” image was sTarTed in The
UK, Australia and the US in the mid-1970s.
• The traditional Punk image (Mohawks, patchy
clothes, drainpipe & bondage jeans, strange body
art) is known among Punks simply as Punk. Some
Punk icons are Sid Vicious, Rat Scabies and Johnny
Rotten. This kind of Punk evolved from a kind of
music formerly known as Garage Rock.
• Punks were against all the ideals and morals that
society were trying to impose on them, so they
were, for the most part, rebellious, nihilistic
youth out to offend the general public, live in
excess and die young.
