     Proto-punk (or protopunk) is the rock music from the 1960s and early 1970s that presaged the punk rock movement, although they were not labelled as such until after the fact. The musicians were not originally associated with each other, coming from a variety of backgrounds and styles, but they anticipated many of punk's musical and thematic attributes. Proto-punk may also refer to rock acts from the mid-1960s deemed to be influential on later punk, particularly much garage rock.

     Most musicians classified as proto-punk are rock performers of the 1960s and early-1970s, with garage rock/art rock bands the Velvet UndergroundMC5 and the Stooges considered to be archetypal proto-punk artists, along with later glam rock band the New York Dolls.
