Abstract

Throughout the 20th century, the importance of youth and music has been paramount in the development of British popular culture. While in London, I was able to investigate one of the most influential of these subcultures: punk. The uniqueness of the punk movement was not only in its ideology, which consisted of overt nihilism and an anti-establishment mentality, but also in the attention it received. It was this rebellious nature that made punk popular; however, it also ensured its demise.
