And now the reasons why I chose 1974...
Punk-rock/pop-punk is one of my favorite genres of music. It is completely different than other types of music, which is why I chose 1974. This genre became well known this year, when The Ramones formed. They revolutionized rock music by creating shorter songs with few chords, changing the way teenagers dressed, while also leading more "rebellious" teens to let loose and have fun.
Being my favorite NBA team, I was ecstatic when I found out that the Celtics won the championship this year. They crushed the Milwaukee Bucks 102-87. They won 11 championships before going on a four year hiatus from being the best. Fun fact, the Celtics have won the most championships out of any team in the NBA (16).
