Watch 'The Decline of Western Civilization' on Psychobabble!

I'd been dying to see Penelope Spheeris's The Decline of Western Civilization for years, so much thanks to the kind soul who posted the entire tribute to L.A. Punk on You Tube. It's not as funny as Spheeris's hair-metal sequel, but unlike Decline Part 2, the music isn't wretched. Great shit from X and Black Flag. Moronic rants from Fear. Lots of ignorant statements from kids who (hopefully) regret them being captured for posterity. A seedy snapshot of a seedy town during its seediest era.
