Music is one of the
greatest forms of communication. It is a
medium to convey love, hate, politics, religious

of great significance or even insignificance.
Punk rock and hardcore
music arose from an underground subculture
in the '70s and '80s that wasn’t satisfied
with society; it was music that had something
to say and demanded attention.
Though they wanted
to be heard, they wanted it on their own
terms and shunned commercialism in music,
creating a strong do-it-yourself ethic (DIY).

society whose ideals they opposed, punk
and hardcore musicians fought popular social
ideas of the time and set their own agenda.

in many instances, but they still demand
to be heard and continue to adhere to a
