The Youth Rock and Roll Club Culture of 1970s and 1980s Los Angeles

Abstract

Los Angeles rock and roll clubs had a strong influence on youth of the era, revealed by the way these clubs served as focal points for new movements. Although contrasting genres, like punk and heavy metal, defined their music and goals differently, these movements all ultimately shared a need to break away from the established generation of adults ahead of them. By turning to aggressive music, drugs and distinctive anti-authoritarian attitudes, Los Angeles youth were able to vent their social frustrations in clubs that bred separateness.
