Generally unheralded at the time, the early 1980s hardcore punk rock scene gave birth to much of the rock music and culture that followed.
Hardcore was more than music — it was a social movement created by Reagan-era misfit kids. The participants constituted a tribe unto themselves — some finding a voiced, others an escape in the hard-edged music. And while some sought a better world, others were just angry and wanted to raise hell.
American Hardcore traces this lost subculture, from its early roots in 1980 to its initial flameout in 1986.
Featuring interviews with Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat), Keith Morris (Circle Jerks), Greg Hetson (Bad Religion), Greg Ginn (Black Flag), H.R. (Bad Brains), Dave Dictor (Millions Of Dead Cops), Joey ‚ÄúShithead‚Äù Keithley (D.O.A.) + many more!
