Evan Rapport

University Press of Mississippi

Punk is an extraordinarily meaningful and productive set of musical approaches, and exploring punk rock’s history based on an analysis of its musical style leads to conclusions that are often in conflict with the stories that have been told. This chapter establishes several premises that are investigated in the rest of the book, including punk’s complicated relationship to American whiteness and the suburbs, and punk’s underappreciated basis in African American musical resources.

Keywords:   historiography, musical analysis, American music, suburbs, whiteness
