Punk rock (or “punk”) is a rock music genre that developed in the early to mid-1970s in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as “proto-punk” music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. Punk bands typically produced short or fast-paced songs, with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through informal channels.
The term “punk” was first used in relation to rock music by some American critics in the early 1970s, to describe garage bands and their devotees. By late 1976, bands such as the New York Dolls, Television, and the Ramones in New York City, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Damned in London, and The Saints in Brisbane were recognized as the vanguard of a new musical movement.

Adam Levine (born Adam Noah Levine; March 18, 1979 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actor, widely known as the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band, Maroon 5
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Levine began his musical career in 1994, when he co-founded the alternative rock band Kara\’s Flowers, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist. After the commercial failure of their only album, The Fourth World (1997), the band split up. In 2001, the group was reformed – with guitarist James Valentine joining the line-up – and began a new, musical chapter, changing their name to Maroon 5. In 2002, the band released their first album, Songs About Jane, which went multi-platinum in the US. Since then, they have released four more albums, It Won\’t Be Soon Before Long (2007), Hands All Over (2010), Overexposed (2012) and V (2014). As part of Maroon 5, Levine has received three Grammy Award

For all the streaming glory benefiting Latin music with global hits such as “Despacito,” it’s the lackluster payouts from on-demand services such as YouTube that should serve as a call to action, according to Cary Sherman, RIAA’s chairman and CEO.
Sherman’s appeal comes in the latest RIAA mid-year report, which shows that U.S. Latin Music revenues in the first half of 2017 grew by 44% ($115 million), from the previous year.
But even the power of streaming accounting for the majority of Latin music’s revenue rise at 82% doesn’t satisfy the monetary disbursements. Artists and labels, according to the RIAA report, cleared $20 million from free on-demand services such as YouTube. Latin music revenues made up 2.9% of the total U.S. recorded music market totaling $4 billion in the first half of 2017.
