Punk’s not dead…it just evolved. The 2010s have been a time of huge change, revolution, and moments that stuck up a middle finger to the world. There were plenty of punk rock moments throughout the decade and we’ve put together just a few—three cheers for shaking things up, long may it continue.
Conan O’Brien Gives NBC the Finger (2010)
After refusing to move the Tonight Show to 12:30am, following Jay Leno’s new talk show, Conan jumps ship, leaving his dream job and the most coveted desk in late night TV. During the final months of his time on NBC, comedy gold ensued with a raw and honest monologue and bits. Some of the best damn TV ever. And Conan’s comeback on TBS was equally as awesome and punk rock as he’s now calling his own shots and has complete ownership over his content.
