Lidingö Municipality is a municipality east of Stockholm in Stockholm County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located on the island of Lidingö; the municipality is a part of Metropolitan Stockholm. It is chiefly located on the island Lidingö, but incorporates a few smaller islands in the surroundings, most notably the Fjäderholmarna islands within the Stockholm archipelago. Being an island municipality it has not been amalgamated with any other entities; the small island of Tranholmen has, been transferred to Danderyd Municipality. The rural municipality was made a market town in 1910, a city in 1926 and a unitary municipality in 1971; the municipality always refers to itself. This was a decision taken by the municipal assembly in 1992; the island Lidingö is connected to the city of Stockholm by the two bridges of Lidingöbron. One is for one for the Lidingöbanan suburban tramway and pedestrians; the bridges lead directly to a station on the Stockholm Metro. Lidingö is for statistical purposes divided into three localities: Lidingö, Brevik and Sticklinge udde.
Because of the strait Lilla Värtan separating the island Lidingö from central Stockholm, Lidingö statistically is not counted as a part of Stockholm. Lidingö traces its history from when remains have been found. According to legend, Lidingö was a place where the Vikings would gather before setting sails to eastern areas, however no proof have been found to confirm that theory; when the city arms was to be chosen in 1928 a Viking ship became the motif, in the colors of the Swedish flag. Lidingö was first mentioned in writing in 1328, called Lydhingö when the entire island and the farms were owned by Bo Johnsson Grip. On a map from 1661 the island is called Lijdingeöö; the island itself hosts few industries, a well-known one being AGA AB, which started production on the island in 1912. Much of the populated land area is built with one-family houses. There are quite a number of conference mansions in the northern parts of the island, providing a part of the industry of Lidingö; the island's politics has traditionally been dominated by the centre-right Moderate Party.
They run the municipality in coalition with the Christian Democrats and with the Lidingö Party. Chairman of the municipal executive board is Anna Rheyneuclaudes Kihlman from the Moderate Party. On the 31st of December 2017 the number of people with a foreign background was 10 065, or 21.33% of the population. On the 31st of December 2002 the number of residents with a foreign background was 6 422, or 15.59% of the population. On 31 December 2017 there were 47 185 residents in Lidingö, of which 8 265 people were born in a country other than Sweden. Divided by country in the table below - the Nordic countries as well as the 12 most common countries of birth outside of Sweden for Swedish residents have been included, with other countries of birth bundled together by continent by Statistics Sweden. Lidingö is one of the wealthiest municipalities in Sweden, with the fourth highest median income per capita; the share of educated persons, according to Statistics Sweden's definition: persons with post-secondary education, three years or longer, is 46.0% – the fourth highest in the country.
In 1942, Lidingö created a committee to provide support for the people in Lohja in the southern part of Finland who suffered badly during World War II. An orphanage was opened in Lidingö and money was collected and sent to Lohja; the orphanage was closed in 1943 as most of the children had returned to Finland. The money, left over was used to provide food for the children in Lohja. Lidingö and Lohja still maintain a close relationship. Another sister city is California; the initiative came from Alameda in 1959 and was part of U. S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's people-to-people-movement; the purpose was to develop better understanding between people from different countries after World War II. Both Alameda and Lidingö are islands with a bridge connecting them to a big city; as the Baltic states were liberated from the Soviet Union in 1990-1991, Lidingö looked for a new sister city in the area. Saldus in Latvia was selected. During the years, a number of environmental and other projects have been accomplished.

Roslagsbanan is a narrow gauge urban railway system in Roslagen, Stockholm County, Sweden. Its combined route length is 65 kilometres and there are 38 stations, it is built to the Swedish three foot gauge. The line starts in Stockholm at Stockholm East Station, it goes north and splits into three branch lines at the junction stations Djursholms Ösby and Roslags Näsby. It is double track between Rydbo and Åkersberga; the rest is single track, but the line to Vallentuna was being doubled in 2012 and Rydbo-Åkers Runö in 2013. There are passing loops at some stations on the single track sections: at Altorp, Hägernäs, Österskär, Visinge, Täby kyrkby, Lindholmen and Kårsta. Following a 2017 agreement between the Swedish state, Stockholm County, the affected municipalities, the line will be extended to the centrally located underground hub T-Centralen, with construction to begin in 2022; the railway, owned by the Stockholm County Council through the public transport company Storstockholms Lokaltrafik, is not part of the nationally owned network.
It is the only narrow gauge railway in Sweden still in use for commercial traffic. Roslagsbanan is part of the Stockholm public transport system, it is operated under contract by Arriva Sverige from 7 January 2013. Arriva Sverige took over from previous contracted company Roslagståg AB, a joint venture by the Danish DSB and Tågkompaniet. Despite its age and limited capacity it is one of the most used railways in Sweden. Since the late 1980s, the railway has but been upgraded to a modern standard with modernised rolling stock, higher platforms and straighter tracks allowing increased speed. There are 15 departures from Stockholm East in the evening rush hour. In 2016, the raliway had a ridership of 48,000 journeys per day; the stations along Roslagsbanan are marked with a J symbol, which stands for the generic term järnvägsstation and is similar to the T symbol used by the Stockholm underground railway stations and the S used for tram stops. Roslagsbanan is now used by Storstockholms lokaltrafik for commuter transport.
The present network comprises most of the southern part of what was once a much bigger network, made up of owned railways all over Roslagen, connecting Stockholm and Uppsala with the countryside and used for passenger and freight trains. For more information on this, see the history section below; the line numbers are not displayed on the trains. In the timetables of Samtrafiken, the lines do not have the numbers as stated above, but the numbers 121 for the line to Kårsta, 122 for the line to Österskär and 123 for the line to Näsbypark; the present train sets were manufactured by ABB Railcar and delivered in 1988–1995. The train sets are maintained and operated by Roslagståg; the trains are made up of three different bogie vehicle types: Motor coach X10p Number of vehicles: 35, Seating capacity: 72, Length: 19.9 metres, Weight: 27.7 tonnes, Power rating: 400 kW, Maximum speed: 80 km/h Driving trailer UBxp Number of vehicles: 34, Seating Capacity: 76, Length: 19.9 metres, Weight: 16.3 tonnes Intermediate trailer UBp Number of vehicles: 32, Seating Capacity: 80, Length: 19.9 metres, Weight: 16 tonnes The trains were refurbished in 2011–2013, where some carriages were rebuilt with low floors, enabling wheelchair and pram access.
The refurbishment included new interiors and exteriors. There are some problems with the rolling stock; the carriages had poor wheelchair accessibility due to narrow doors and stairs. The trains are very noisy considering the railway goes through built up suburban areas; because of this SL began the process of finding a company from which to order modern trains to meet the rising demand for departures on Roslagsbanan in 2010. 22 new trains were ordered from Stadler Rail in 2016 and are scheduled to be delivered in 2020. They are going to be named X15p. Improvements are ongoing to reduce congestion and improve service on the biggest lines serving Täby and Vallentuna. New double track sections are built; the plan is to have double track to Åkersberga and to Vallentuna in 2014. There are plans to upgrade the current maximum speed of 80 to 120 km/h. New trains are needed for the traffic increase which are expected to be delivered in 2014. Along with the new trains, the old X10p in service will be repaired and modified into a more modern look.
A feasibility study into extending the Roslagsbanan to Arlanda Airport was completed in 2010, followed by a public consultation in 2012. The present Roslagsbanan was once just the southern part of a large narrow gauge system throughout Roslagen and eastern Uppland, connecting Stockholm and Uppsala with ports, smaller towns and parts of the countryside and used for both freight and passenger transport. In 1885 the line from Stockholm East Station to Rimbo was opened, today the longest branch of Roslagsbanan, it was built and operated by the private enterprise Stockholm-Rimbo Järnväg. In 1909 SRJ changed its name to Stockholm–Roslagens Järnvägar following the take-over of companies running adjacent lines. Roslagsbanan is one of the oldest electrified railway lines for public transport in Europe; the first Stockholm–Djursholm suburban section, was electrified in 1892, at the time continued in
Punk rock is a rock music genre that developed in the mid-1970s in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as "proto-punk" music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock, they produced short, fast-paced songs with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; the term "punk rock" was first used by certain American rock critics in the early 1970s to describe 1960s garage bands and subsequent acts perceived as stylistic inheritors. Between 1974 and 1976 the movement now called. By late 1976, bands such as Television and the Ramones in New York City, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Damned in London, the Saints in Brisbane were recognized as forming its vanguard; as 1977 approached, punk became a major and controversial cultural phenomenon in the UK. It spawned a punk subculture expressing youthful rebellion through distinctive styles of clothing and adornment and a variety of anti-authoritarian ideologies.
In 1977 the influence of the music and subculture became more pervasive. It took root in a wide range of local scenes that rejected affiliation with the mainstream. In the late 1970s, punk experienced a second wave as new acts that were not active during its formative years adopted the style. By the early 1980s, faster and more aggressive subgenres such as hardcore punk, street punk and anarcho-punk became the predominant modes of punk rock. Musicians identifying with or inspired by punk pursued other musical directions, giving rise to spinoffs such as post-punk, new wave, indie pop, alternative rock, noise rock. By the 1990s, punk re-emerged in the mainstream with the success of punk rock and pop punk bands such as Green Day, The Offspring, Blink-182; the first wave of punk rock was "aggressively modern" and differed from what came before. According to Ramones drummer Tommy Ramone, "In its initial form, a lot of stuff was innovative and exciting. What happens is that people who could not hold a candle to the likes of Hendrix started noodling away.
Soon you had endless solos. By 1973, I knew that what was needed was some pure, stripped down, no bullshit rock'n' roll." John Holmstrom, founding editor of Punk magazine, recalls feeling "punk rock had to come along because the rock scene had become so tame that like Billy Joel and Simon and Garfunkel were being called rock and roll, when to me and other fans and roll meant this wild and rebellious music." In critic Robert Christgau's description, "It was a subculture that scornfully rejected the political idealism and Californian flower-power silliness of hippie myth." Technical accessibility and a Do. UK pub rock from 1972-1975 contributed to the emergence of punk rock by developing a network of small venues, such as pubs, where non-mainstream bands could play. Pub rock introduced the idea of independent record labels, such as Stiff Records, which put out basic, low-cost records. Pub rock bands put out small pressings of their records. In the early days of punk rock, this DIY ethic stood in marked contrast to what those in the scene regarded as the ostentatious musical effects and technological demands of many mainstream rock bands.
Musical virtuosity was looked on with suspicion. According to Holmstrom, punk rock was "rock and roll by people who didn't have many skills as musicians but still felt the need to express themselves through music". In December 1976, the English fanzine Sideburns published a now-famous illustration of three chords, captioned "This is a chord, this is another, this is a third. Now form a band"; the title of a 1980 single by the New York punk band Stimulators, "Loud Fast Rules!", inscribed a catchphrase for punk's basic musical approach. Some of British punk rock's leading figures made a show of rejecting not only contemporary mainstream rock and the broader culture it was associated with, but their own most celebrated music predecessors: "No Elvis, Beatles or the Rolling Stones in 1977", declared the Clash song "1977"; the previous year, when the punk rock revolution began in Great Britain, was to be both a musical and a cultural "Year Zero". As nostalgia was discarded, many in the scene adopted a nihilistic attitude summed up by the Sex Pistols slogan "No Future".
While "self-imposed alienation" was common among "drunk punks" and "gutter punks", there was always a tension between their nihilistic outlook and the "radical leftist utopianism" of bands such as Crass, who found positive, liberating meaning in the movement. As a Clash associate describes singer Joe Strummer's outlook, "Punk rock is meant to be our freedom. We're meant to be able to do what we want to do."The issue of authenticity is important in the punk subculture—the pejorative term "poseur" is applied to those who associate with punk and adopt its stylistic attributes but are deemed not to share or understand the underlying values and philosophy. Scholar Daniel S. Traber argues that "attaining authenticity in the punk identity can be difficult".
