Pins – Too Little Too Late

Video

https://vimeo.com/118910607

When I was a senior at UCSB I had a mass media course and along with two friends in the class we put together music and slide show presentation focusing on the still emerging punk rock scene. We explored how the genre was influenced by the society at large and in turn how our culture was being influenced by punk rock.  The final 90 seconds of the presentation had every picture we could find of punk musicians and fans flipping off the camera set to music by the Germs, Fear, Circle Jerks, X and others.

This song by UK indie pop/punkers Pins, shows that 35 years later punk’s influence is still going strong and that middle fingers are still a useful form of communication.
