    Post-punk is a diverse genre that emerged from the cultural milieu of punk rock in the late 1970s. Originally called "new musick", the terms were first used by various writers in the late 1970s to describe groups moving beyond punk's garage rock template and into disparate areas.

    The term post-punk was coined to describe groups who took punk and experimented with more challenging musical structures and lyrical themes, and a self-consciously art-based image, while retaining punk's initial iconoclasticstance. In the early 2000s, a new group of bands that played a stripped down and back-to-basics version of guitar rock emerged into the mainstream. They were variously characterized as part of a garage rock, new wave or post-punk revival. Influences ranged from traditional blues, through new wave to grunge. The music ranged from the atonal tracks of bands like Liars to the melodic pop songs of groups like the Sounds, popularising distorted guitar sounds. They shared an emphasis on energetic live performance and used aesthetics (in hair and clothes) closely aligned with their fans, often drawing on fashion of the 1950s and 1960s, with "skinny ties, white belts [and] shag haircuts". There was an emphasis on "rock authenticity" that was seen as a reaction to the com...


    There was interest in garage rock and elements of punk in the 1980s and 1990s, and by 2000 local music scenes in several countries had bands playing alternative and indie music. The Detroit rock scene included the White Stripes and the Von Bondies. The city was a crucial stomping ground for Ohio's the Black Keys. New York's scene included the Strokes, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On the Radio, LCD Soundsystem, the Walkmen, the Rapture, and Liars. In Los Angeles & San Francisco, the scene was...

    2001–2006: Commercial breakthrough

    The commercial breakthrough from these scenes began initially in the UK, and was led by a small group of bands. The Strokes emerged from the New York club scene with their debut album, Is This It (2001), which debuted at No. 2 in the UK and cracked the Top 50 in America. The White Stripes, from Detroit, released their third album, White Blood Cells (2001), which charted decently in both the US and the UK, as well as spawning two transatlantic Top 25 singles. The Hives, from Sweden, became a m...

    2007–2010: Decline in popularity

    As a dominant commercial force, the revival was relatively short-lived. By 2007, the initial success of the movement was beginning to subside, leading commentators to discuss its decline as a phenomenon and argue that it had been overtaken by the more musically and emotionally complex music of indie rock bands like Arcade Fire (which, nevertheless, has been characterized by critics as featuring post-punk influences and sound) and Death Cab for Cutie. By the end of the decade, many of the band...

    Origini del termine, contesto e termini correlati

    Il post-punk è una categoria peculiare che comprende band evolutesi dal milieu culturale del punk rock nei tardi anni '70. Originariamente chiamato "New Musick", il termine fu utilizzato da diversi scrittori, critici e giornalisti di quegli anni per descrivere le band che andavano dal garage rock di matrice punk fino alle aree più disparate. Tra la fine del 1977 e l'inizio del 1978 Jon Savage e Jane Suck coniarono "post-punk" sulle pagine del Sounds, generando sulla scena una sensazione di ri...

    Caratteristiche e filosofia

    Molti artisti post-punk trovarono un'iniziale ispirazione nell'energia e nell'etica DIY del punk, per divenire, specie in fase successiva, più disillusi sullo stile e sul movimento, tacciandolo infine di un'evoluzione verso formule commerciali, convenzioni rock e parodie di se stessi. Band come queste ripudiarono le rivendicazioni del punk sull'accessibilità e sulla purezza della semplicità, invece di vedere in questi principi un'opportunità per rompere con la tradizione musicale, sovvertire...

    Il post-punk revival è una corrente di rock alternativo nata negli anni 2000 dove le band riprendono gli elementi del genere originale dell'inizio degli anni ottanta. Il movimento è assai diffuso nei paesi anglosassoni quali il Regno Unito e gli Stati Uniti e in diversi paesi del continente europeo, ed è molto legato alla scena post-punk di Londra e di New Yorkdegli anni ottanta. Il termine post-punk revival fu coniato da vari critici musicali per indicare band come Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, The Rapture, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party e The Strokes. Questa seconda ondata di gruppi che riprendono il post-punk inseriscono all'interno della loro musica elementi dell'indie rock e della dance degli ultimi anni ottanta più o meno come succedeva per il post-punk, che fondeva elementi del krautrock e della musica da discoteca della fine degli anni settanta.

    Post-punk er en bred type rockemusikk som oppsto fra punkebevegelsen på slutten av 1970-tallet da en ny generasjon av musikere som sto i opposisjon til pompøs mainstream rock representert ved eksempelvis The Eagles, Emerson, Lake & Palmer og Electric Light Orchestra, og tok med seg punkens energi videre fra det enkel, primitive og tradisjonelle i punkrocken ved å tilpasse seg en rekke avantgardiske trekk.
