Ian MacKaye Is Alive and Well and Living in DC: Concluding Thoughts

  • Tyler SonnichsenEmail author


This chapter concludes with observations on DC, Paris, and urban theory. Though these cities have priced out much of the subculture piece by piece, punk scenes have endured in both. Punk icons like Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, and Dave Grohl have drawn greater attention to DC as new generations of fans discover hardcore, and Paris has come to excavate its underground past as well.
