- What was Punk Rock Music reacting or rebelling against? Did it fade away because it was primarily reactionary (and thus only relevant to its time and place) or because it threatened the establishment and was too primitive, too nasty, too honest? Is there a parallel between the Punk Rockers of the mid-seventies and the classic rock and rollers in the late 1950s? Please mention some band names in your analysis to support your point.
- Heavy Metal Music: do you love it or can’t stand it? Explain Why? Is it mainly a male teen thing?
