Various Artists No Thanks!: The ’70s Punk Rebellion For a genre so reliant on the primal roar of electric guitar, punk rock is still given short shrift by tons of so-called “serious” guitarists. Well, that’s their loss because by ignoring punk’s many impassioned and creative players, they’re simply ignoring the very lifeblood that makes rock guitar, well, rock. Covering the period from 1973 to 1980, No Thanks!: The ’70s Punk Rebellion is a four-CD box set that sports a photo-packed 114-page booklet, as well as thorough track info and thoughtful essays that describe punk’s ability to empower those who were disaffected by the current state of their hallowed rock and roll. All of the usual suspects are lined up: the Ramones, the Clash, and Iggy &the Stooges to name a few—but one of No Thanks’ best feats is taking punk out of its ever-narrowing box and highlighting the artists whose music was born out of punk’s bitch-slapping of the music industry.
