In the aftermath of New York’s 1970s punk scene came a wilder, tougher breed of 1980s hardcore punk in the city. Spearheaded by D.C. transplants Bad Brains, centered around Manhattan’s crumbling Lower East Side, and more influenced by heavy metal than earlier hardcore scenes in L.A. and the Midwest, NYHC bands like Agnostic Front, Nihilistics, Cause for Alarm, Cro-Mags, Reagan Youth, and many others banded together to create a hard, physical sound and culture that thrives to this day. Host Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) leads the charge with tracks by those bands plus Sheer Terror, Sick of it All, Leeway, Prong, Youth of Today, Madball, and many others.
