Punk Rock Teens

Punk Rock Teens

Students in U.S. high schools can get free digital access to The New York Times until Sept. 1, 2021.

The band featured above, the Linda Lindas, is made up of four Asian and Latina teens and tweens who last week had a clip of a recent performance of their song “Racist, Sexist Boy” at a branch of the Los Angeles Public Library go viral. Did you see it?

Are you in a band? Do you have friends who are? What are your favorite teenage bands, whether you know the members personally or just admire the group from afar? And if you’re not in a band, could you imagine yourself ever joining one? If so, what kind of music would you want to make?
