40 Years Of Punk

Real Style - - Culture -

It can be ar­gued that the Sex Pis­tols’ hit song An­ar­chy in the U.K. was the main fac­tor that led to the rise of punk, and 2016 marks 40 years since the sin­gle was re­leased. The Pis­tols may not have been the first punk band, but their al­bum Never Mind the Bol­locks cer­tainly de­liv­ers some of the most im­por­tant songs in the genre and is rec­og­nized as one of the most in­flu­en­tial al­bums in the his­tory of rock and roll.

Through­out 2016, lead­ing cul­tural venues in Lon­don, Eng­land will be cel­e­brat­ing the legacy and in­flu­ence of Lon­don’s punk scene, which the Pis­tols helped ig­nite. From live gigs to talks, films, ex­hi­bi­tions and mu­seum dis­plays, par­tic­i­pants will be able to ex­pe­ri­ence the heart of the punk scene and ex­plore its on­go­ing in­flu­ence on mod­ern-day so­ci­ety.
