  • Impact Of Punk Subculture Of The 1970s

    event was actually a suicide rather than a simple overdose, as he was clear and after drug rehabilitation at that time, but he was struggling with the death of a love of his life, Nancy Spungen, which might have been the underlying motive to commit a suicide. This event was a critical factor in Sex Pistols’ already ongoing degradation and eventually a complete break of the band. Even though they made several shows after that, the band never achieved the spirit that they got during their best times again. Sex Pistols are a massive symbol of punk, but they are not the only one, as there were many bands in the UK that represented this movement and if we want to describe this movement thoroughly, we certainly can’t miss out on the legendary Clash. It is unchallengeable fact that the band members Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Terry Chimes and Nick Headon managed to make an enormous impact on the UK’s punk scene and on rock music as a whole. Even though they are considered a classic punk band of the mid 1970’s along with the Pistols, there is clear distinction in the way they presented themselves in music. Their first single “White Riot” is, in a certain sense a classic rough, fast and rhythmic punk, but as the band progressed, they developed a very sophisticated music style, which included elements of classic rock, blues and reggae. The sophistication of their musical performance can certainly be felt the most in their greatest album “London Calling”, released in UK in…
