Punk rock or " punk " is a rock music genre that emerged in the mids in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.

The black flag has been used as an anarchist symbol for hundreds of years, tracing its origins to the maritime tradition of piracy and on to the Paris Commune, the Haymarket Affair, Revolutionary Russians in the s and even Vietnam protesters in the s.
