Talk about "performance art," Punk Rock has notoriously been a genre for those creepy artists who mutilate themselves and cause themselves pain for the pleasure of their audiences, and in some cases, themselves. Listen on to hear about all of the crazy acts of the Punk Rockers of the past. This week's ROCK SCHOOL is sick! Read the full description.

Rs_logo_small Punk Rock: a genre of oddities, creeps, and well... punks... Among these creeps, there are people who cut, pierce, and otherwise mutilate themselves in public to wow their crowds. We've got Henry Rollins, and Iggy Pop among like ten other puck rockers who've caused themselves tormenting pain for the pleasure of their vicarious audience.
