Punk rock music has a weird and fascinating origin story. With that in mind, Ben is joined via Skype by fellow rock n' roll history junkie and good pal Chris Van Gompel for a thorough and entertaining attempt to dissect it. Chris and Ben pour over decades of raw, energetic and in some cases not-for-the-faint-of-heart music to bring the 20 greatest songs that inspired and influenced The Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash, Nirvana, Green Day and everything in between. These songs and artists deserve credit and/or blame for punk. We hope they're proud of themselves...
Chris Van Gompel can be seen writhing like a maniac on stage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin's premiere noise-rock outfit IfIHadAHiFi. Learn more here: http://ifihadahifi.bandcamp.com/
