Punk Music and Fashion

By: Bivan Jhon

Music is definitely something that most people incline towards for relaxation and unreeling periods from their fast and disciplined life. But unfortunately these expressive styles of music are not in season every time. Different type of music has their own musical era that completely depends on the each type of musical preference by the listeners. The listeners are the main and the active participants that play a significant role in pushing the particular type of music in a season. Along with the musical influences the type of clothes and appearances also come into play. Though appearances are totally secondary and only become identified once live performances or the better-known medium of spreading the punk music get recognition in various parts of the world.

Music preference also depends a lot on individual behaviors. Some go for the soft and some would prefer loud ones. Those who consider themselves loyal towards any particular type of music will always try to follow the certain musical genres and generally they are the followers of soft and melodious music whereas the party goers would usually go with what people are verbalizing about and often it is something that would entirely depend on which music or artist has been actively performed.

Musical artists now believe that ‘Identity’ is very important to get oneself recognized among the crowd at a glance in a same profession. Punk fashion would go along well with their musical masterpieces. Hairstyles, hip clothing, brass or chain linings and jewelry, awkward-looking make-ups, body piercing, tattooing and facial designs are only some of the characteristics that are thought to have some intimate relationship with punk rock artists and performers and the combination of tunes delivered in a unique and different way different from that of other artists prove to be the touchstone for most solid performances.

Common people following different fashion becomes an item of criticism anywhere and are look down upon as weird creature but when a hit song comes out and the same fashion is followed by the performer it has a totally different insight. Even the criticizers start following the same suit and also consider getting a similar suit of their own. There are a number of notable sensational artists who are easily identified with punk and rock music that are not only making waves in the music industry but also raising storms in the world of fashion. Especially teenagers like to take inspirations from these rock stars and pamper them with such ideology.
