How Punk Went Pop

(antiMusic) We learn something new everyday. Today we learned that pop groups Good Charlotte and Sum 41 are now considered punk. Things sure seemed to have changed to the once revolutionary genre. The good news is that you can see for yourself how punk went from the underground with real punk bands to the pop mainstream with TRL clowns on a new DVD.

Punknews has the story: The documentary Punk's Not Dead has been set for release on DVD on May 01, 2008. As previously reported, the documentary focuses on the past 30 years in punk rock, with the social impact it has shown on everything from the original counter-culture, through its marketable image of today.

The cast consists of a wide variety of bands, labels and personalities; providing both interviews and performances. Current stars like Green Day, Good Charlotte and Sum 41; punk staples such as Bad Religion, Pennywise, Rancid and the Casualties; and pioneers like the Ramones, Minor Threat and the Dead Kennedys are just some of groups featured in the presentation. - That's all well and good but who wants a signed guitar?
