Full Show Friday: Bad Brains 1982 CBGB's, NYC

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Bad Brains!
We have a special theme this month as we focus on full live shows from the historic NYC shithole CBGB's
We saw many a filthy show there, and while the bathroom was the worst in history, the sound was absolutely fantastic. Our only regret is that we never had a chance to play it. This month RtBE will focus on some of the great bands who did, tackling one show from each decade the venue was in operation. 

The stone cold legends of hardcore/punk grace our Full Show Friday stage today as the Bad Brains live set from CBGB's in 1982 gets our love. Along with Minor Threat, Bad Brains are a staggering godfather to the scene of hardcore punk that we grew up with. They weren't the first band we got into, that was a more personal local act, but after starting close to home we quickly expanded into the NYHC scene and then south to the DC legends. This is what makes hardcore so special, starts local and grows global.

The Bad Brains are towering figures whose legacy still looms large, as proof two of their members and all of their songs headlined the biggest Hardcore show of the year last month. The blitzkrieg that is their set from 1982 is something to behold...
