The Instant Punk Kit was available by mail in the late 1970s. It included a button, jewelry, and a punk handbook.
The funk and punk rock music genres merged together to form a dance hybrid genre in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Funk-punk was influenced by the "no wave" movement that came out of New York during this period which was based on the rejection of commercial new wave music. The joining together of funk and punk has been referred to as a no wave mutant disco hybrid of music.
