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
i grew up in the decade of despair.
