decade of despair

I grew up in the 80's. the decade where we feared that we would end civilization and we would have to rebuild technology from scratch. Fear of annihilation permeated pop culture.

Music, the Clash -london calling

Time zone - world destruction
Frankie goes to Hollywood- Two tribes go to war

Killing Joke - Eighties
TV, the day after
movies, Mad Max

even in pop songs
information society
cartoons, Thundarr
