New Wave is a genre of music that emerged in in the middle to late 1970s alongside punk rock. The term at first generally was synonymous with punk rock before being considered a genre in its own right that incorporated aspects of electronic and experimental music, mod subculture, and disco and 1960's pop music, as well as much of the original punk rock sound and ethos, such as an emphasis on short and punchy songs. During the 1980s in the United States New Wave became a catch-all term that applied to new music acts in general and synthpop and British acts in particular. The 1990s and 2000s have seen revivals, and a number of acts that have been influenced by a variety of New Wave styles.
The term "New Wave" itself has been a source of much confusion and controversy. Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren used the term to compare punk rock with the 1960s French Situationist movement. It was used in 1976 in the UK by punk fanzines such as Sniffin' Glue and then by the professional music press. In a November 1976 article in Melody Maker, Caroline Coon used McLaren's term "New Wave" to designate music by bands not exactly punk, but related and part of the same musical scene. For a period of time in 1976 and 1977 the two terms were interchangeable. By the end of 1977, "New Wave" had replaced "Punk" as the definition for new underground music in the UK
