Punk Rock

"To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It's freedom." - Patti Smith.

Bursting onto the music scene in the late 1970s, punk rejected the trappings of mainstream rock, instead creating a sound filled with fast-paced playing, stripped-back melodies, and hard-edged, political lyrics. Although short-lived, punk's anti-establishment movement influenced a generation, and the punk spirit still lives on today in contemporary music and art.

Below is a selection of images of artists who were at the forefront of the punk scene. To see our full punk rock print collection click here
