THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK
THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK Punk rock is a style of music that originated in 1964 in New York City at an underground club called The Dom. This little known club at the time was the catalyst that started punk on the road to what it is today (History Punk). Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols was quoted saying; “Punk was created as a cure for boredom.” (Punk History). He sure has one thing correct; one certainly can not be bored while listening to punk rock.

The War on Masculinity and Femininity
The War on Masculinity and Femininity Growing up we were always told we could be and do anything we wanted to. We were taught that we could do anything the opposite sex could do and more. We didn’t feel limited to our gender, but we were taught that there are differences between boys and girls that we cannot control. We cannot deny that our genders separate us from one another. Since Adam and Eve, males and females have been different, not only physically but psychologically and socially. The di

Aisha Aisha was the youngest daughter of Abu Bekr, himself the chief advisor, the first disciple, and best friend of Muhammad -- the Messenger of God. It was customary in those days, and still is today in Arabia, for a man of property and substance to have many wives. In offering his daughter to Muhammad, Abu Bekr was trying to solidify his ties with that great man, hoping an issue would spring forth to carry on the name of both Muhammad and Aisha. The Qoran allows a man to have up to four wives

Rome The trial and ultimate death of Socrates may possibly be one of the most unjust verdicts imposed in the world’s history. Socrates was merely a radical thinker in a transitional time in Athens, and after Athens lost the Peloponnesian War to Sparta, Socrates’ principles were just not tolerated. Roman westward expansion and militant domination had yet to happen, as did the trial and death of Jesus Christ. The year was 399 BCE and Athens was a strong and proven democratic government.

The Romantic movement in Europe, a time where the feelings of the human nature were expressed, a time where the intellectual was rejected, and the emotions was the important to all arts. Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, is a clear example of the romantic novel, where a scientist named Victor Frankenstein gives life to the most abhorrent monster. This monster finds itself in incredible solitude, where it develops the most profound human emotions.

There is not an era in the history of man where music is not present. Poets, painters, and even political theorists use musical terms such as harmony and rhythm to describe their world. This impact signifies music\'s importance to man. Each era of history, each stage of man, has its own musical ideas and methods. In modern ti

Why The North Won The Civil War In several categories the North was far superior to the South and therefore won the war. Some examples are the economies, financial and industrial capacity, the leadership, and the manpower potential of the North and South. This includes the character and ability of the soldiers. In 1861, when the Civil War first began, the North had almost every advantage number-wise. There were twenty-three states in the Union while there were only eleven in the Confederacy. Thi

The Feudal system in Japan The introduction of the Feudal system in Japan during the late Heian period brought about massive social and political changes in the country. Though the people remained, their way of living changed radically, altering Japan\'s place in the world significantly. In many cases, direct comparisons can be drawn between differing situations in pre-feudal and feudal Japan, though this isn\'t to say that all changes occurred at the same time.

His fondness for wine also caused some of his outbursts of rage. Alexander liked drama, the flute and the lyre, poetry and hunting. What he truly wanted in his life was glory and valor, rather than easy living and riches. To say the least, Alexander matured early. A famous anecdote describes Alexander skillfully receiving Persian envoys in Philip\'s cour

The Meaning Beyond Art is defined as being a skill applied to painting, music, and poetry. The words that are written describing art have a purpose and a meaning but, through the words of Jarrell, Williams, and Auden words mean much more than a description. These poems show how words are more than mere descriptions, they are symbols. Randall Jarrell is analyzed as “The one living poet who has written good poems that ordinary readers like without any trouble and understand without any trouble...”
