Iceland Now Has Its Own Punk Museum

There are maybe 320,000 people in all of Iceland but just about every single one of them seems to be a hardcore music fan. The latest Reykjavik landmark is the Iceland Punk Rock Museum, which was officially opened by Johnny Rotten.

Iceland Monitor reports:

The Icelandic Punk Museum offers a fascinating look at the history of punk in Iceland with photographs and objects related to the period around 1980. Iceland’s music history is documented from early days to the punk and new wave revolution which in turn served to create some of Iceland’s best known artists including Björk, The Sugarcubes and Sigur Rós.
