In reaction to the perceived artistic pretensions of the first wave of British punk, in the early ’80s the culture developed a style championed by working-class youth who sought to do away with the corruption of "professionalism" and "musicianship." The style from this era embodies the modern-day image of "punk." These were the punks who rocked mohawks, studded leather vests and jackets, and patches with political slogans and band names stiched onto their clothes.
