It establishes highly critical evaluations of the discourses that influenced early skateboarding and punk cultures.

Based on an examination of songs, flyers, magazines, and videos, Konstantin Butz revisits American popular cultures of the 1980s and approaches them from a variety of theoretical and methodological angles.
