an INCREDIBLE political punk band formed in New York in the 1970's, by David "Insurgent" Rubinstein and Paul Bakija. They were Anarchist peace-punk whose songs often contained ironic and satirical messages regarding government and society. Reagan Youth broke up in the late 80's, after tension from touring and drug abuse... the break up was made official when Ronald Reagan left the White House. Thought they only released one album during the time they were a band, their influence on punk is undeniable.
in 1993 after many years of battling drug addiction and the sudden loss of his mother to a car accident and girlfriend to notorious serial killer Joel Rifkin, David Insurgent committed suicide.
Reagan Youth had a tremendious influence on punk rock.
