I think this video demonstrates the complexities of the so-called “punk scene” or punk subculture, especially through the lifestyle and political differences that were very apparent in the late 1990s hardcore punk scene:

The argument started over leather jackets. The band’s strong views on veganism, and what right they have to tell people what to believe or what to wear are questioned by some people who were called out for wearing leather jackets and supporting “murder.” Dropdead were clearly not “preaching to the converted” at this show.

But what else happened at this show? I heard that someone was stabbed? Did this contraversy/trouble affect other shows that happened at Who’s Emma?

I don’t know…

This footage is pretty fascinating though.
