squalid... I think this era introduced me to the term squalid

Suburbia

I need to see this film again
I have not seen this film since 1984

in high school we lived in a pre-cable era
technology wise we were pre-dvd
heck... we were pre-cd
dvd? people were still arguing over VHS versus Beta
and very few people had cable

we would dub these films and share them with our friends
then we would watch the same films over and over and over and then over again

Suburbia, DOA (the documentary... the dennis quaid one was cool too) Mad Max, Road Warrior, A Clockwork Orange, The Hunger, Quadrophenia, what else was there?
I know there were others

oh yea, Flea from the Chilli Peppers was in Suburbia

I just thought of a couple others:

Decline of Western Civilization, Vol. 1...and "Another State of Mind", the documentary that followed Social Distortion and Youth Brigade on their tour:
