I don't typically choose destinations for travel based on music, however, I try to find ways to bring the local music styles into every trip I take. So while in Iceland, I wanted to investigate a little the culture; think alternative, think punk, think Bjorn!
We checked out the Punk Rock Museum of Iceland which is located underground in a previously public bathroom. This quirky little dive provided a giggle for the ingenuity of re-purposing a toilet into a venue to house some fun history on all things Punk Rock.
I will admit my disappointment in the museum as it was small and gave the impression of printed out Wikipedia pages glued to the walls a-la school project. However, thinking back, what all do you really expect from punk rock? They had some artifacts (rock jackets, guitars and drums) you could try on, play with, and pose for some rad Instagram pics. The most unique use of the space was a room of headphones hanging from the ceiling that were playing a loop of some of the biggest hits to come from the country.
So, before you venture down, remember to temper your expectations of the already rebellious style.
What other musical interactions can you suggest?
