An Exploration of the Meaning Behind the Word ‘Punk’ by PBS Bongo Bongo

PBS Bongo Bongo (see previous post) host Ethan Fixell explores the meaning behind the word punk in a recent episode.

PUNK. It’s a prank, a sub-genre of rock-n-roll, that thing you light firecrackers with, and the guy who used to pick on you in high school. You’ve been using the word for years, and at long-last, Bongo Bongo is here to deconstruct it for you. Now enjoy it, because PUNK’S NOT DEAD!
