The Punk Rock Museum Announces Guided Tours with Punk Rock Legends

The Punk Rock Museum opens on March 10th, 2023, and starting in April, you can book a guided tour and hear the history directly from the legends of punk rock!



The Punk Rock Museum is owned and operated by the same people whose stories and artifacts make up punk’s absurd and striking history. Starting in April, you can book a guided tour and hear the history directly from the legends of punk rock!

Visitors can look forward to hearing about the first Germs shows from Don Bolles, walk with Roger Miret from Agnostic Front as he tells them about living in a van in the Lower East Side in the early ’80s, and hear about the crazy meteoric rise to fame from Noodles of The Offspring. Everyone who books one of these tours will hear stories no one else has heard before from the people who lived them.

Guided tours will be offered multiple times a day and are limited to 20 people per tour.

Some of the confirmed tour guides include:

  • Louiche Mayorga from Suicidal Tendencies
  • Noodles from The Offspring
  • Stacey Dee from Bad Cop/Bad Cop
  • Don Bolles from The Germs/45 Graves
  • Angelo Moore from Fishbone
  • Greg Hetson from Circle Jerks/Punk Rock Karaoke
  • Warren Fitzgerald from The Vandals

  • Joe Escalante from The Vandals
  • Linh Le from Bad Cop/Bad Cop
  • Intruder Blue from Masked Intruder
  • Scott Shiflett from Face To Face
  • Paddy Costello from Dillinger Four

Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
