With roots in the nihilistic sounds of the Stooges, MC5, and the Velvet Underground, punk rose in England in the late '70s as a savage reaction to polished, tired mainstream rock. Versatile, but always with underpinnings of anger and rebellion, punk includes bands including Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, X, the Clash, Green Day, and Rancid.
