About This Quiz

Many consider the birth of punk rock to be found in the '60s with garage punk acts like The Seeds. However, others consider the punk rock we know and love today to have started in the early to mid-70s. No matter when you consider punk to have been born, everyone agrees that the tradition continues today! 

As we go through our punk rock quiz, we are going to ask about your favorite acts throughout the ages. The bands and songs you choose as your favorites will go a long way to helping us determine whether you belong in the United States or the United Kingdom. In typical punk rock style, we ask you to respond with your true and honest thoughts. 

From The  X-ray Specs to Green Day, punk offers something for everyone's ears. The things you prefer to blast through your earbuds and to motivate you through life on the fringes of society will let you know which country you are really meant to live in. Just like punk rock comes from the heart, your soul identifies with either the US or the UK more. Tell us about your favorites, and we'll tell you where you really belong!
