In this transition period, the youth rebellion emerges as the resistance of the social values. During Minor Threat’s existence in 1980s, the United States of America was in a great recession period when the country experienced transitions in many sectors. Some American youth speak up their disappointment toward the condition and express their rebellion through hardcore music.

The song lyrics are straight forward and use some sarcastic terms. These song lyrics are combined with hardcore music which is aggressive; the music is played in fast beat, while the singer sings the song lyrics in a scream and shouted vocal style. All of these elements are bound up into Minor Threat’s songs that present American youth rebellion in 1980s.
