On January 13th 2023 The Punk Rock Museum will open its doors in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a museum that was built and is run by the very people who lived, breathed, and created the history that is on display. This collective of hundreds includes musicians, friends, family, road crew, managers, labels, and everyone else from every corner of punk rock. This museum is a sacred place for all to bask in the incredible and absurd history of our people. This is our church, our Mecca, and our community center! This isn’t just for punk bands that have made a big impact or sold a lot of records. This is for every punk band that has ever been on a flyer, played in a basement, or recorded a demo tape. This is an all-inclusive museum dedicated to punk rock for punks and looky-loos alike!

The Punk Rock Museum

On the wall of “Insignificant and Unknown Bands” a modern band from Indonesia can see their photo next to a band from England from 1977. The Jam Room is where you can play the guitars from bands like Pennywise, Rise Against, NOFX and Sick Of It All, through the original amps they used. If they get broken…we will try to fix them! You can smell the history through the leather jackets worn by Iron Cross, The Casualties and Rancid. There will be daily tours by Casey Royer (DI), Roger Miret (Agnostic Front), Eric Melvin (NOFX), Louich Mayorga (Suicidal Tendencies), Stacey Dee (Bad Cop/Bad Cop), Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and dozens of others. You can get the real stories from the legends that were there when they happened! At their tattoo shop, you can get a tattoo from Fletcher Dragge (Pennywise), Mike Roche (TSOL) or Brian Kienlen (Bouncing Souls) and you can get married at their wedding chapel by Jack Grisham (TSOL) or El Hefe (NOFX). 

The Punk Rock Museum

Every exhibit is meticulously and lovingly designed by Bryan Ray Turcotte, Fat Mike (NOFX), Fletcher Dragge, Lisa Brownlee and all the core team members. From The Germs to The Linda Lindas and all the punk bands that fit somewhere in between, every decade of punk will be represented. Punk rock finally has a home where it truly belongs. In a 12,000 square foot, thirty year old building at 1422 Western Ave, right next to the Las Vegas strip. In one of the best, affordable neighborhoods of downtown Las Vegas, is where you will find The Punk Rock Museum. On January 13th, 2023 they are opening their doors, their bar, their tattoo shop, their wedding/wake chapel and most importantly, wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Most people will never understand what punk rock really is… and that’s the real beauty of it.
