Genre of the Moment: Folk Punk

So here is an interesting music genre I just read some stuff about.

Folk Punk is a genre that is essentially a hybrid of punk rock and folk music.

2 bands that are most notable for this style are The Pogues and the Levellers.

A band that really laid down the foundation for the folk punk genre is Violent Femmes, who started out playing coffee shops and on street corners.

  1. I wouldn't think of putting The Pogues and the Violent Femmes in the same genre.

    You should do either garage rock or post punk next.

    Also would you mind including some of the links that you used in your research?
