Michael Azerrad WEBSITES please bookmark Punk77eouk H itsvilleuk corn Spin cornarticlesI 977 year punk exploded REQUIRED LISTENING I have compiled a list of songs that will provide a soundtrack for the course It is by no means de nitive but rather comprehensive covering a period from 19631996 While I am providing the listI am not providing the music per se Because we live in a digital age accessing the material without burning CDs can be done through a variety of sources For the purposes of this course I m recommending that you establish an account with either Pandora or Lastfm Pandora and Lastfm s services are free with some limitations for users living in the US Please don t pay for anything extra unless you want to If this is not suitable or you have another means of accessing music use whatever source is most convenient and doesn t agrantly violate current copyright law If you prefer CD copies of the music you can purchase the 4disc box set No T hanks The 70s Punk Rebellion Rhino The majority of the listening comes from this release COURSE OBJECTIVES This course is designed for students interested in a detailed introduction to the history and culture of punk rock in the US and UK By combining lecture and discussion along with a significant listening component we will explore the historical progression of this musical genre an springboard into examinations of topics such as cultural geography race gender and class relations generational con ict youth subcultures the business of punk rock and the role authenticity plays in the creation and commodi cation of the music These issues will be examined by interrogating the complex relationships that exist between performers audiences and the music business The course will be divided though not equally into three parts Part one covers prepunk in uences eg mid60s American garage rock the British Invasion Glam Rock and Pub Rock Part two will begin with the rst wave of American and British punk and conclude with the emergence of punk scenes in specific American and British cities e g Los Angeles San Francisco Boston Minneapolis Cleveland Manchester Leeds Edinburgh Part three will address the early postpunk era in America and Britain as well as punkinspired micro genres eg hardcore anarchopunk no wave etc concluding with the rise of grunge and the multiplatinum pop punk bands of the midtolate 90s Throughout the course we will brie y study a number of key figures musical and nonmusical contributors to punk rock INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon completion of this course the successful student will 1 Have a l 39 39 39 quot ofthe 39 39 r and punk rock as amusical genre and cultural movement 2 Have developed a general familiarity with the genre s major contributors both musical and nonmusical 3 Develop a more nuanced understanding of the integration of popular music with other forms of media and how this affects its production and consumption REQUIREMENTS AND GRADING I expect you to regularly attend class That said I will be taking attendance but only intermittently I m assuming that your interest in this material transcends mere curiosity and that you will be here far more often than not Besides this is a smallish class Ifyou re not here I ll probably notice However just to give you added incentive if you miss more than three classes without a medical excuse you will not receive a passing grade VERY IMPORTANT This course has not been designed as lecture only and will be conducted in a manner that combines lecture and discussion Therefore you are required to regularly contribute to the class discussion SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION If you are intimidated by class discussion pathologically shy or simply choose not to participate you need to get over it Sitting staring and not saying anything will have a negative impact on your nal grade Please be advised that this is not a scantrononly class that reduces your knowledge to correctly choosing a letter The graded material in this course will also require you to produce thoughtful considered written responses EXAMS There will be a total of 2 exams a midterm and a nal Questions will be multiple choice fillin matching short answer essentially any manner of evaluative inquiryI see t Rest easy the nal will not be comprehensive Make Up Exams will be given ONLY after the receipt ofthe written documentation of a legitimate reason There will be only one make up date for each exam and will occur within one week ofthe original exam date Exam 1 March 23 Final Exam Wednesday April 27 last day of classes DO NOT SHOW UP LATE FOR AN EXAM I understand that circumstances can prevent you from getting to an exam on time with that in mind Iwill open a FIVE MINUTE lateness window IF YOU COME TO THE EXAM AFTER THE FIVE MINUTES ELAPSES 10 POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR TOTAL SCORE FOR EACH MINUTE YOU ARE LATE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS There will be TWO writing assignments in this class Assignment 1 is a 250word de nition of punk rock What do you think it is What does it sound like What does it look like What make it different from other types of rock and or pop I want this to be in your own words It is not necessary to nd outside sources but if you want to quote someone that s ne Again keep it brief 250 words is one doublespaced page Due Monday January 24 Assignment 2 involves critiquing music from the required listening that you consider representative of punk rock The amount of music you select is entirely up to you it can be more than one song but not more than three What I ll be looking for in this paper is how you develop and sustain an argument I expect you to bring in outside sources as a means of supporting your case When you select the song or songs in question please let me know what it is I don t want read 30 papers on the Ramones This paper is to be no less than three and no more than five full doublespaced pages Due Wednesday April 6 All writing assignments are to be in 12 point Time New Rom an Points will be deducted for anything other type size or typeface I will NOT ACCEPT email submissions I will NOT ACCEPT unstapled copies I don t believe staplers are a budgetbusting item I will NOT ACCEPT late submissions without a veri able excusereason HOW DO I GRADE WRITTEN WORK Good question A paper receiving a grade of A contains a strong clear thesis statement a well developed argument outside source material evidence of research a strong conclusion that effectively reaffirms the paper s opening thesis statement and few if any errors in grammar and syntax It also demonstrates creativity with language indicative of a carefully crafted and edited document An A paper clearly goes above and beyond the call of duty A paper receiving a grade of B contains a clear understandable thesis statement develops an argument and conclusion but is marred by grammar and syntax issues and overall tone that while good is not particularly imaginative or creative A paper receiving a grade of C reads like an unedited first draft There is a thesis statement but it s unclear The argument is coherent but rambling the writing is uninspired no outside sources and many grammatical problems A paper receiving a grade of D reads like a poorly conceived streamofconsciousness narrative thought up two hours before the deadline after consuming a case of Red Bull A paper receiving a grade of F is an epic disaster LISTENING QUIZZES There will be two listening quizzes You will be required identify 56 song snippets and answer a few related questions The song selections will start out easy and get progressively more dif cult While I allow makeups for missed exams I DO NOT extend the same courtesy for the listening quizzes The dates for the listening quizzes will be announced in class a week or so before the actual quiz READING QUIZZES EXTRA CREDIT ONLY I will occasionally give a brief inclass quiz that covers only the reading material It serves 2 purposes to let me know who s keeping up with the reading and a way to provide you with extra credit points The quizzes will be unannounced and the points you receive will be added into your overall point total If you fail these random quizzes it will not be held against you except that if you consistently do poorly it tells me you re not keeping up with the reading and that may factor into whether or notI round up a borderline grade Grading Grading for this course is calculated on a cumulative scale of 500 points There is no curve Don t ask Attendance and participation 100 points 2 Listening quizzes 25 points each 50 points Writing assignment 1 50 points Writing Assignment 2 100 points Midterm exam 100 points Final exam 100 points A 90100 450500 pts 13 8089 400449 pts C 7079 350399 pts D 6069 300349 pts F below 59 299 pts Because there are no grades in this course borderline grades will be in uenced by attendance progress and overall effort DISCUSSING GRADES Due to laws concerning privacy faculty may discuss grades ONLY with individual students and this MUST be done in person no phone or email If you need to discuss your grade you must come during of ce hours or make an appointment Helpful Advice Don t cram Although cramming is a preferred method of studying by many undergraduates it is a deeply flawed method of retaining information Don t fall behind and attempt to make it up with one or two marathon sessions Assimilating the data in small amounts is a far more effective way of remembering the material especially in a content intensive class such as this one This advice applies to the listening as well Review your notes Review your class and reading notes before the next session If you have questions write them down and ask them at the beginning of the next class Email is a great way of asking me questions and getting prompt answers Connect the material to what you know Find ways to link the material we study with your general knowledge cultural and social history and understanding of mass media Context often makes matters clearer and more understandable RIM 4810 001 History of Punk Rock Dr Dougan Listening American Garage Rock and British Invasion Louie Louie 7
