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

Punk, an abbreviated history

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.

And every year since, whenever a disillusioned eighteen-year-old needs a hook for an article.

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.
