80’s Hardcore Flashback

Ahhh.. I remember it like it was the day before yesterday... somewhereabouts 1984. Definitely caught wind of the Connecticut hardcore scene even though I grew up across the border in NY State. Cassettes, moshing, and feeling like I was a part of something. Funny that I actually became friends with some of the guys in the CT bands many years later like 76% Uncertain. Here are some of the songs that fueled my youth. Is it weird that I still dig them?

Clitboys – No Such Thing

Vatican Commandos – Do What You Want To

Black Flag – I Love You

76% Uncertain – Coffee Achievers

GBH – Big Women

X – Soul Kitchen

The Vandals – The Legend of Pat Brown

Dead Kennedys – Too Drunk to Fuck

Suicidal Tendencies – I Saw Your Mommy

Anti-Nowhere League – I Hate People
