Description: It's over twenty years since punk first pogoed its way into our consciousness. Punk Rock: So What? brings together a new generation of writers, journalists and scholars to provide the first comprehensive assessment of punk and its place in popular music history, culture and myth. Combining new research, methodologies and exclusive interviews, Punk flock: So What? brings a fresh perspective to the analysis of punk culture, and kicks over many of the established beliefs about the meaning of punk.

Punk Rock: So What? re-situates punk in its historical context, analyzing the possible origins of punk in the New York art scene and Manchester clubs as well as in Malcolm McClaren's brain. The contributors question whether punk deserves its reputation as an anti-fascist, anti-sexist movement, challenging standard views of punk prevalent since the 1970s, and discussing the role played by such key figures as Johnny Rotten, Richard Hell, Viv Albertine and Mark E. Smith.

Tracing punk's legacy in comics, literature, art and cinema as well as music and fashion -- from films such as Sid and Nancy and The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle to the work of contemporary artists such as Gavin Turk and Sarah Lucas -- the contributors establish that, if anything, punk was more culturally significant than anyone has yet suggested.
