"Punk will come back in new forms always because the attitude is so very, very good. It's to do with people doing things for themselves, controlling their own methods and their own culture."

ŚMalcom McLaren, 1982

Well I guess everyone has his own theory about how "punk" started. (Those endless discussions if Americans or Brits were first etc.)

So...

Let me get this straight.

Punk started in Manchester even though it was already up and running in New York, London and elsewhere?

Nope. My brain still hurts.

Must be all that champagne he drinks these days.

Well I'm sure punk was invented in Germany, it just didn't get the recognition.  ;)  :P

Wasn't punk rock invented in 1883 in a small hut just outside of Blackpool ?

Or was that pink rock?...
