80s Hardcore

CVLT Nation Salutes

One of the coolest things about growing up in early 80’s punk secene was collecting flyers. The promoters of shows back then went out of their way to make sure the handbills were sick, because how they looked could make or break your gig. One artist who rose out of the ranks of early hardcore illustrators was Marc Rude. He was from San Diego, but it always felt like he was from Hollywood. As an artist, he was so gnarly and prolific. Marc actually created some of my favorite album covers of all time, like The Misfits’ Earth A.D. and the Battalion of Saints’ first album (he was manager in the 80s). Not only was he a sick artist, but he had a really awesome spirit, and treated the young punks with PMA. I won’t front – Marc was one of the most stylish dudes around, but it never seemed like he tried to be. His work inspired us to do what we do with CVLT Nation gear. Shout out to people like Bryan Ray from Kill Your Idols for keeping his name alive! 10 years ago, Marc left this planet, but today, CVLT Nation would like to celebrate his artistic legacy with a huge gallery of his work. All hell breaks loose after the jump…check out how Marc Rude wrecked shit!
