Los Angeles punk band that began 1977 and -- I discovered to my immense surprise the other day -- is still playing gigs, though apparently the only original member left is lead vocalist Lee Ving. Fear, captured live in the documentary The Decline of Western Civilization, played crass, obnoxious, politically incorrect rock that at worst could be hideously misogynistic but at best possessed a raw bluesy power that made the band a classic of the old school. Their first self-titled album (containing the anthemic "I Don't Care About You (Fuck You)") is a must-have, as is the soundtrack to the Decline. The rest you can pretty much pass on.
