The UK Punk Explosion - 3/13/15

I guess I could have called it "UK Punk Scene" or "UK Punk Movement" but sometimes things (and people) just explode. And if any music scene exploded, it probably would have been that initial wave of punk bands over in the UK during the mid-70s. Great Britain was by not so great anymore, young people were pissed, and rock 'n' roll was no longer the voice of social change and revolution. Then came the Sex Pistols and shortly thereafter, explosion. Fashion, culture, music, art as we know it - none of these things would ever be the same again.
