A free-form discussion on the history of hardcore, from its origins in the '77 punk explosion in LA, NY, DC, Boston, and Canada. We talk about our experiences in the scene and the various class backgrounds and political sentiments at play. Discussions include: anti-racism, youth crew, straightedge, veganism, political hardcore, if anarchopunk really exists, the concept of "unity", and why hardcore singers keep saying "all lives matter" at their reunions.
