The 1981 punk rock documentary The Decline of Western Civilization by Penelope Spheeris was the first exposition of the burgeoning punk and hardcore subculture in Los Angeles to the masses of America. The emotional and raw performances by the likes of Black Flag, Germs, and Fear caught on film by Spheeris painted a youth in revolt, flying in the face of conventional culture. Collected in this special set are Spheeris' groundbreaking "Decline" documentaries; the original from 1981 and her two follow-ups from 1988 and 1998.
