Transport yourself to the California Bay Area in the mid- to late-1980s with this specially curated playlist featuring more than four hours of awesome music. Halt and Catch Fire music supervisor Thomas Golubic and SuperMusicVision have created a mix of songs that range from local punk rockers and popular club tracks to the emerging sounds of Jamaican Dancehall and R&B.
The playlist blends greats like R.E.M., Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and Sheila E. with such Bay-area heroes as Timex Social Club, disco superstar Sylvester, Dead Kennedys, Faith No More, and Chris Isaak. There’s even gems from The Dicks — a punk band that, like Mutiny, moved from Texas to San Francisco — and Jim Carroll Band, which recorded the seminal album Catholic Boy in the city by the bay. Check out the complete playlist below.
