Description:

This paper explores the world of punk rock in central Florida. Various interviews conducted by the author are reconstructed in the paper to tease out different definitions of what the scene means to various people and age groups in this area. It also looks at a history of punk rock from its heyday in the 1970s, in Great Britain, and how its themes of belonging and acceptance still translates to some of today's youth in the 1990s.

From the Paper:

"Belonging, acceptance, and repor are a major part of punk to most individuals I interviewed; however, it was by far not the only response I received. A second view, given to me by S, a worker at Sound Idea, was that one of the most appealing aspects of punk was the energy within the scene. This section focuses on that overlying energy in punk. Punk music is loud, fast, and aggressive. Shows as Sound Idea were highly participatory- audience and band members alike ran, circle pitted, and danced across as large of a space as they could seem to niche out of the crowd. Many shows were high energy and physically taxing. However, this energy was focused, and what S was more generally referring to, I believe, is the hands on approach that seems to proliferate so many punk scenes."
