The Decline Of Western Civilization
The Decline of Western Civilization is an American documentary filmed through 1979 and 1980. The movie documents the Los Angeles punk rock scene. An intimate look at the punk subculture of the '80s, this documentary by Producer Penelope Spheeris captures more of the ambiance of the time than outstanding examples of the music subculture itself.  The Los Angeles punk music scene circa 1980 is the focus of the film with performances by the Alice Bag Band, Black Flag, Catholic Discipline, Circle Jerks, FEAR, Germs, and X.
