Music Monday — What are you listening to? (Punk Rock Edition)

cover image source: Epitaph Records

Continuing to zoom into Rock's sub-genres, I'd like to put the magnifying glass on punk rock. I personally don't claim to be that well versed in this sub-genre of music, but I know that it spans multiple decades and there are plenty of sub-genres within the sub-genre (post-punk, hardcore, pop punk, etc.) It's also more than music — it's a whole cultural movement and even a lifestyle for some. Whatever punk means to you, I'd like to hear it. Please share your favorite punk musicians, songs, albums, and school me on everything punk!

In this weekly series, folks can chime in and drop links to whatever it is they've been listening to recently + browse others suggestions.

Alright, let's rock! 🤘 Note: you can embed a link to your song using the following syntax {% embed https://... %}. This should work for most common platforms!

While I don't consider myself much of a punk rocker, I know a little bit!

My favorite old school punk band is probably The Clash... I particularly love the song "Police and Thieves" which is really kinda punk mixed with reggae, something that The Clash often liked to do:

Also, while writing this up, I stumbled upon the song "Your Mom" by THICK (the cover image of this post is from the music video) which has amazing humor and is just all around awesome:

Punk music always brings back a lot of memories of high school. And, at the top of that list of music I had on high rotation was Face to Face.
