A late 70's and early 80's musical subculture, stemming from the punk rock movement. Many bands who are considered post-punk can can also be labelled as new wave and goth. Within recent years many new bands have emerged with obvious post-punk influences. The sounds of post-punk are usually dark, rhythm guitar based with strong basslines coupled with simple drumbeats. The vocalists are often very original sounding and the lyrics, insightful as opposed to commercially accessable. Along with the music a fashion developed consisting of very plain clothing, sometimes dark eyeliner and for the boys short simple haircuts and for the girls more flamboyant hair.
post-punk bands include: joy division, bauhaus, the jam, siouxsie and the banshees, the smiths, echo and the bunnymen

Catch-all term mainly for bands during the late 70s and early 80s who were punk yet "not punk enough." Trends amongst these bands included artsiness as in odd musical timing and signitures, off-beat hooks and . Mostly said to come after the death of punk in 77 and after the sex pistols broke up of that same year. While often refuted some say Wire was the first post punk band but so many of these bands formed during 76/77 (yet only found a distinct sound later in their careers?) that one can hardly know for sure. Post-punk would later spawn countless short lived musical subgenres such as goth rock. Post-punk technically died in the mid-80's and evolved into college rock and alternative rock.
Wire, Gang of Four, Mission of Burma, Souxie and the Banshees

Music that followed punk (in its truest sense). Tended to follow similiar ideals/ideas to Punk but thrived upon experimentation of sound. Punk ripped the rulebook of music up and post-punk follwed. Punk said that it didn't matter how well you can play your instrument as long as you have ideas and have a go. Post-punk bands reacted against the thre chord thrash formula that punk had become and widened its scope of ideas. It is a catch-all term that refers to a lot of very different bands that made music using ideas pulled from different places.
Post-Punk bands include the Slits, Talking Heads, Gang of Four,
types of music include art-punk, no wave, goth, ska revival, mod revival, indie...

A term referring the first real wave of art punk bands, and probably the most influential and popular movement in the history of art punk. In truth, the term "post-punk" is something of a misnomer, as post-punk developed with and along side late 1970s classic punk as opposed to after it, as the prefix "post-" would imply.

The roots of post-punk lie in the early work of the Velvet Underground, a mid-to-late 1960s act associated with artist Andy Warhol and one of the first to blend hard-edged garage rock with avant-garde concepts pioneered by classical music in the 20th century. Similarly-minded groups that followed soon after like Roxy Music, Hawkwind, and the Krautrock movement on the whole were also important, in addition to African-American and Carribean music styles like harder-edged funk and soul and certain types of reggae, in particular dub reggae, respectively. Some solo work by artists such as Iggy Pop, David Bowie and Brian Eno also contributed much to post-punk's development.

Post-punk came right with punk. In America, bands like Talking Heads and Television played right along side more traditional punk bands the Ramones and the Dead Boys at New York City venues CBGB's and Max's Kansas City. In England as well, Wire and Siouxsie and the Banshees were art rock influenced band who shared the stage with the Sex Pistols and the Damned. Although the post-punk movement lasted more or less from 1977 to 1984, its prime years were from 1978 to 1981, which saw classic releases by bands like Joy Division, one of the most well known, accessible, and popular bands of the post-punk era, Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, Bauhaus and Pere Ubu, as well as lesser known bands like Pylon, the Fire Engines, and Metal Urbain, a band from France and one of the most aggressive groups in the whole post-punk scene. There was also a purist strain of post-punk known as no wave, which flourished in the New York City underground for a brief period in the late 1970s after many of the original classic punk and post-punk bands had either signed to major labels or broken up.

Post-punk came to an end around 1984 as most of the leading artists had either disintegrated or turned to making more commercial music, though in a subtle way its influence has permeated to myriad corners of the popular music and youth culture worlds. Accessible groups with post-punk roots like R.E.M. and U2 became very popular almost universally and remain so today, and more pop-leaning tracks by Talking Heads, New Order, and Devo among others are considered an important part of the early 1980s pop culture landscape. Goth is probably the closest to a subcultural front of the initial post-punk movement, as death rock took much from gloomy, more atmospheric post-punk like Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure. The progressive spirit and sound of just about all post-punk was revived in the late 1980s and 1990s in the post-hardcore movement, hard-edged art punk played by musicians initially drawn into music by hardcore punk who had since become disenchanted with that limited form. Like goth to original post-punk, emo has arisen as a subcultural front for post-hardcore. Finally, a movement for better or worse dubbed the post-punk revival earlier this decade provided some of the most exciting and innovative music of the new millennium.
Joy Division are one of the first bands that comes to mind when discussing post-punk.
