Directed by Penelope Spheeris | 1981

The ultimate record of LA’s 1980s punk subculture, Penelope Spheeris’ raw, warts-and-all documentary captures the music, attitude, and personalities that drove the scene. Featuring interviews with and live concert footage of legendary bands like Black Flag, X, Circle Jerks, Germs, Fear, and more, The Decline of Western Civilization is a candid, frequently funny, and decidedly un-romanticized time capsule of a singular moment in rock history.
