The Revolution Summer
In the mid 80s punks were sick of white power skinheads and other violent and intolerant groups appearing at hardcore shows. Thus they decided to end the violence and take the community back. This was necessary for the community to grow, artistically and creatively. So they started playing more melodic mid-tempo music with introspective lyrics dealing with personal, emotional matters - more than aggressive anti-authoritarian lyrics. This was the "Revolution Summer". And it spawned a hell of a lot great artists. First and foremost Rites of Spring, Embrace and Moss Icon.
