Abstract

Since the creation of football fan groups, music and fan practices have been inseparably linked everywhere in the world. This paper will highlight the importance of punk music and other content that personify this specific urban subculture for a particular group of Gravediggers, respectively fans of JSD Partizan. The research was inspired by the appearance of punk rock band Grupa JNA (JNA Group), whose music is solely dedicated to Partizan and Gravediggers, but also to the already developed tradition of fanzine making and graffiti drawing that has flourished over the past few years, thanks primarily to the multimedia group Grobarski Trash Romanticism. We will try to find an answer to how punk as an idea and practice fits into the abstract idea of Partizan as something that so tightly connects a large number of individuals and again among them evokes an unfamiliar “sublime emotion”, unknown to non-fans.
