The 5 Albums that Gave Birth to Punk Music - #ClassicsWeek

And on the third day, God said, "Let there be punk". And it was good. While the Ramones self-titled debut (which turned 40 this week!) may have been what many consider the first official "punk" album, we can trace the genres roots back for decades. Punk has always been about freedom and individuality; about destroying ideals and symbols; about doing things your own way. The heart of punk music is rebellion, rejecting cliché compositions and melodies and playing loud music at breakneck speeds.
