Inspired by the Punk subculture that came from Punk Rock, it began in the 1970s in America, Britain, and Australia. Punks are frequently categorized as having left-wing or progressive views, however punk politics cover the entire political spectrum. Punk-related ideologies are mostly concerned with individual freedom and anti-establishment views.
Punks tend to anger others through highly theatrical use of clothing, hairstyles, cosmetics, tattoos, jewelery and body modification. Punk was originally used to refer to a prostitute before its meaning changed over time.
