Punk rock (or "punk") is a rock music genre that emerged in the mid-1970s in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as "proto-punk" music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. They typically produced short, fast-paced songs with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through independent record labels.

Although there is debate on what ideology punk really is, it is commonly accepted that most punks are left-leaning. First and foremost, most punks are anti-authority, and are super critical of politicians and governmental bodies. Its also common to see punks fight for human rights, which includes movements such as Black Lives Matter, LGBT+ Rights, #MeToo and the Women's Rights movement, and other humanitarian causes.
