“We like to encompass all aspects of the Punk Rock community and all the genres that helped create it," states Mark Stern, co-founder of Punk Rock Bowling. "Punk rock is not just one sound. It has influenced and has been influenced by so many different musical styles, so it’s our goal to celebrate all of that diversity at Punk Rock Bowling. From bands like Devo to Refused to Rancid and The Specials to Wanda Jackson and Iggy Pop, it's all punk rock to us. Without jazz, rockabilly, experimental, garage rock, rocksteady, or rock ‘n’ roll, there would be no punk rock.”
