R.I.P. Punk Rock (1977-2007)

According to today's issue of the IU campus newspaper, the Indiana Daily Student, punk rock has apparently died.

Having just seen the Sex Pistols on the Tonight Show shilling for Guitar Hero 3, I would have to agree.

Punk, an abbreviated history
1965-66: U.S. garage punk emerges, including Count Five, The Monks, The Sonics and The Barbarians.
1967: First Velvet Underground album
1974: The group Television begins playing at New York venue CBGB
1976: Ramones release self-titled album and tour England
1976: Sex Pistols release "Anarchy in the U.K."
1977: The Clash releases self-titled album 1978: Sex Pistols break up, starting "post-punk" era
Early 1980s: Music gets "hardcore," with bands such as Black Flag, Circle Jerks
Early 1990s: Punk music goes grunge, with bands such as Nirvana, Green Day
1991: Documentary "1991: The Year Punk Broke," released, indicating punk's move from its roots
Late 1990s: Punk music turns safe and no longer angry, with bands such as Blink-182
November 2007: Indiana student newspaper declares punk dead. Move on, nothing to see here.

Didn't they just rename it to "Garage rock" or "Seattle rock" or something like that? I thought it included the genre of crappy, gravely voice guys that you can't actually hear, but are making noise.

As I think happens with all music*.. if you listen long enough you will learn to like it. My Ex-wife was a punk rocker (With blue spiked hair, leather, etc) and she always listened to Bad Religion and Dead Kennedys and stuff like that and after hearing it over and over again I actually started thinking the music was OK.. Thank goodness she is my ex-wife and I am now cured

* = Except country.

Punk is not dead, it just sucks right now. And for the last decade or two.

It's all just Rock n Roll, which should really be catergorized as Post-Blues.

And that should be classified as post-classical.

OK, I'm sure Giantrobo will attack me for asking, but just exactly HOW does this not belong in Music Talk?

Jolie Holland said in an interview a few years ago that no self-respecting punk makes punk music these days. They all go into alt-country like Ryan Adams, or roots-rock like Jack White, or some off-the-wall genre like the Dresden Dolls.

I believe that's called "Shit Rock".

I thought we were living in a post-post-post-post-post-punk world.

I was thinking of this before I even clicked on the thread to read it. That one event should be the gravestone for the punk rock movement.
