Firstly, it defines concepts of youth rebellion and the punk spirit, as well as showing to researchers own preconceptions and reliability. Further on the study has explored youth rebellion, susceptible teens, as well as the pedagogical aspects and possibilities of the themes. Specifically, punk pedagogies have been explored and introduced as an important tool to help youth finding their identity and musical voice. Quantitative interviews have been conducted with three informants who has partaken in youth revolts connected to their generations. This has been done to give a better insight into the thoughts and experiences with youth in rebellion, both in the perspective of a participant of said rebellions, but also to give insight in views surrounding other youth revolts. The discussion will draw clear lines between the different youth revolts and will give a good insight into how youth are acting and getting their voices heard. The discussion will present a typography of different teacher attitudes towards music education, and will present a teacher type called “the antagonistic teacher” that summarizes a way in which would benefit the pupil turning into rebellion, the teacher and possibly the society.
