Con un estilo sencillo, pero siempre rebelde y provocador, el punk se ha ganado un lugar privilegiado dentro de la historia de la música. Más de treinta años de existencia confirman que este género es mucho más que una moda. Y si bandas como Sex Pistols o Ramones lo glorifican, otras como Green Day o Good Charlotte lo mantienen vigente.
