Forget Meat Loaf, Wasted Youth was an early 80s hardcore punk band from L.A. Their debut LP, "Reagan's In," released in 1981, is a raging masterpiece that clearly illustrates the essence of punk music. Look for a live performance by the band in the "Slog Movie," an obscure 80s documentary of the L.A. punk scene, in the same realm as the "Decline of Western Civilization."
