Oi! is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s. [ 1 ] The music and its associated subculture had the goal of bringing together punks , skinheads and other working-class youths (sometimes called herberts ). The Oi! movement was partly a response to the perception that many participants in the early punk rock scene were, in the words of The Business guitarist Steve Kent, “trendy university people using long words, trying to be artistic...and losing touch”. [ 2 ] André Schlesinger, singer of The Press , said, “Oi shares many similarities with folk music , besides its often simple musical structure; quaint in some respects and crude in others, not to mention brutally honest, it usually tells a story based in truth.” [ 3 ] [ edit ] History Oi!

Queercore (or Homocore) is a cultural and social movement that began in the mid-1980s as an offshoot of punk . It is distinguished by being discontent with society in general and its rejection of the disapproval of the gay , bisexual , and lesbian communities. [ 1 ] Queercore expresses itself in a DIY style through zines , music, writing, art and film. As a musical genre , it may be distinguished by lyrics exploring themes of prejudice and dealing with issues such as sexual identity , [ 2 ] gender identity and the rights of the individual; more generally bands offer a critique of society endemic to their position within it, sometimes in a light-hearted way, sometimes seriously. Musically, many queercore bands originated in the punk scene but the industrial music culture has been influential as well. Queercore groups encompass many genres such as hardcore punk , synthpunk , indie rock , power pop , No Wave , noise , experimental , industrial and others. [ edit ] History
Emo ( pron.: / ˈ iː m oʊ / ) is a style of rock music characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C. , where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace . As the style was echoed by contemporary American punk rock bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed, blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s by groups such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate . By the mid-1990s numerous emo acts emerged from the Midwestern and Central United States , and several independent record labels began to specialize in the style.
