Punk rock is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the mid-1970s. Punk bands, rooted in 1960s garage rock, rejected the perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock.

Grunge is an alternative rock subculture that first appeared in the middle of the 1980s in Washington, a state in the American Pacific Northwest, particularly in Seattle and neighboring towns. Heavy metal and punk rock are combined in grunge, but punk's structure and pace are absent.

Rap, Incorporating "rhyme, rhythmic speech, and street vernacular," rapping is a musical style of vocal delivery that is performed or chanted, typically to a beat or musical accompaniment. Rap includes "content," "flow," and "delivery" as its constituent parts.

Post-punk is a broad subgenre of punk music that emerged in the late 1970s as musicians abandoned punk's traditional elements and raw simplicity in favor of avant-garde sensibilities and non-rock influences.

Indie pop is a music genre and subculture that contrasts the style and tone of mainstream pop music by combining guitar pop with a DIY ethic. It arose from British post-punk in the late 1970s and spawned a thriving fanzine, label, club and gig circuit.

Influences

Ben takes influence from known artists such as: XXXTENTACION, The Smiths, Green Day, Tyler The Creator, Elton John, BLINK 182,paramore and more..
