Punk may have been born in the UK, but as Washington D.C. bands like Minor Threat, Bad Brains and Fugazi prove, it reached its apex in the USA. By the early ’80s, the Reagan government’s stifling conservatism triggered much social unrest, and in Washington it was the hardcore punk scene that voiced their dissent the most loudly. Through a mix of interviews and live concert footage, director Scott Crawford charts the scene’s evolution from its violent and anarchic DIY origins to the famed ‘Summer Revolution’, which saw bands fight for a more inclusive and egalitarian music landscape. Boasting insights from rock icons Ian Mackaye, Henry Rollins (a D.C. native whose first band S.O.A. pioneered the scene), Dave Grohl (who got his start in D.C. band Scream) and Thurston Moore, Salad Days offers a raucous, engaging look at one of the most important eras in music history.
