Because you wanna do something yourself : A study of how the Swedish punk movement was established from 1977 onwards (English)
This thesis describes how the punk movement was started in Sweden and how it continued to grow in the late 70's. The main questions are: How was the punk movement regarded in Sweden?; How did punk reflect the society? and What does the term punk represent?
The study is based on journalistic texts in newspapers and magazines from the period of the breakthrough of punk. The work is based on a methodical review of the material and is organized thematically under topics like opinions, gigs, clothing and music. Initially, punk lead to misunderstandings and misperceptions since few people knew what punk was all about. The study reflects society in its time and is therefore more than just a caption of history.
Punk attracted much attention in Sweden in 1977 and in its wake came a number of misunderstandings due to the punk look and the ‘punks’ alleged views. During 1978, the punks got their own Swedish identity and a lot of the misconceptions started to disappear. In time, ties were tied between the former rivals, the punk, and the Swedish music movement (Musikrörelsen). The situation changed by the principle of 'Do it yourself' (DIY) in the punk when more young people started doing something for themselves rather than being passive.
