While trying to breath between a lasagna and a tiramisu, my husband and I have been watching hundreds of clips of Saturday Night Live, and here it is one of the best:

History of punk

I wonder if the actors did imitate the English accent in a convincing way.

Enjoy!

Hi sarah!

Very good!
I wouldn't say that was a British accent, exactly.

It's a 'punk' accent - it's the way people who hate 'society and the way normal people speak' would speak.

That was hilarious and sounded pretty much like just about every angry punk bad I ever heard :)

The accents sound pretty good to a Canadian but I guess DragOnspeaker knows better than I!

Strange. I got a message that "the uploader has not made this available to your country."

I actually got the same message but found it by searching around a little.

Maybe this link will work for you.

Hey Catcat -

I think what Drago was getting at was that it was standard, generic Punk-talk. Not particularly a "British" accent.

As you yourself said: they all sound the same.

And they pretty much do, whether from USA, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia.

Yes - the accents were VERY good, and the vocabulary and 'attitude'. Dancing

It's just not what I'd generally call a 'British accent'.

It has nothing to do with fake British accent and punk attitude, but I have to post this

I welcomed 2015 while watching this video with my husband and some of our friends, I hope it will make you smile and sing along Dancing Dancing


Happy new year, dear fellas! My best wishes to you and your beloved ones.

More love, more happiness, more rock'n'roll.


Sarah
