Punk for a Day Day

Punk for a Day is celebrated on October 25th, providing an opportunity to learn more about one of the world’s biggest movements: Punk. Punk has a distinct worldview that society doesn’t always understand, but this doesn’t stop people from joining the rhythm and breaking stereotypes.


The Punk movement began to take shape after the success of the hippie movement in the 1960s. Punk music was known for its loudness and brashness, and the ideology of the uprising was quickly spread by the many punk bands that sprang up. One of the most famous of these was the Sex Pistols, who originally promoted the London clothing store Malcolm McLaren. Punk soon spread to France, Australia, and the USA, and in the 1970s the movement faded into the background with the rise of disco. Its resurgence came in 1991, attributed to the American group Nirvana, who blew up the music charts.
