Hardcore punk flourished throughout the early to mid-1980s, with bands leading the genre such as Black Flag , Bad Brains , Minor Threat , Suicidal Tendencies , . , and Dead Kennedys amongst others. It began to wane in the latter half of the decade, with the New York hardcore scene dominating the genre. However, it experience a jumpstart in the late 1980s with emerging bands such as Operation Ivy and Green Day that would define not just the so-called "East Bay" sound, but impact the next decade's punk and alternative sound. Some of which is still around today.
