Punk rock is supposed to push the buttons and boundaries of society, and if any band pushed these to the absolute limit, it was Los Angeles’ Fear. In the early ’80s, when most punk bands were combating crooked politicians, empowering the exploited, and challenging conservative lifestyles, Fear was saying “I don’t care about you!” to everyone indiscriminately. The band’s bullheaded approach was offensive, hyper-masculine, and often instigated violence, but their musicianship and creativity went unmatched. How could a band be complete assholes and still somehow manage to become supremely influential? See three out of four original members perform and find out for yourself.
