1984 was a fucking year to remember! One of my all-time favorite bands released three albums in one year and played a crazy amount gigs. I’m talking about BLACK FLAG, who were on fire during this era. The lineup of Rollins, Ginn, Roessler and Steveson did some stellar damage while

If had to pick one video from the 80’s that summed up what it was like slam dancing in LA. at a punk show, it would have to be Youth Brigade’s Violence. This visual is a total snapshot of an era and how kids expressed themselves through tribalism and dance.

I’m pretty sure the year was 1984 and something strange was in the air in the California punk scene, especially in the Bay Area. Before this year, Hardcore Punx in SoCal and NorCal had no love at all for Hair Metal because we considered them straight poser scum. Then the
