During the early 80s Reagan era, punk music takes hold as people rebel against pop rock and the last of disco. This chronicles the hardcore punk scene starting from 78 Southern California with many of the fans and musicians involved.
It's an exhausting recounting of really angry music. Honestly, it was never my kind of music but it is fascinating to see the story. This is not a music concert. This is a small peek into an outsider community. It uses a long string of talking head and old performance footages. Some of the people are recognizable to any passing music fans. Most are people from bands that only fans would know. They are mostly underground bands and they don't usually get on the radio.
