A definitive history of the music that shook the world, looking at the origins and development of the punk rock movement as a social, historical, political and musical force. The Punk Years celebrates punk as a valid musical genre in its own right, like jazz or blues or soul. Appreciative comment focused on the great cross-section of interviewees and the programme's honesty and integrity in dealing with a highly contentious, and for many people emotional and exciting, art form.
