Punk music rose to prominence in the mid-1970s, rooted in 1960s garage rock bands, in rebellion of the excessive production of radio music in those days. Short, fast-paced songs, hard-edged melodies, stripped-down instrumentation, and often shouted anti-establishment lyrics.
Featured local band: The Roll-Ons.
