Made In LA: Warren G, Social Distortion, Warpaint, No Age, Trash Talk Take You Inside the LA Music Scene
Noisey is proud to present the final episode of its Made In America series, which heads to Los Angeles. For the series, directed by acclaimed filmmaker and music video director Lance Bangs, Noisey and Budweiser travelled the country to speak with world famous and locally adored artists, including Nelly, Ben Gibbard, and Danny Brown, and explored the cities that made them.

Tackling the LA scene is not an easy task, but with the help of a killer set of artists, Noisey was able to piece together Tinseltown's musical history.
To do so, we met up with Warren G in Long Beach at the scene of the "Regulate" video, watched as Egyptian Lover demonstrated his 808 prowess, and spent time with Warpaint, Ariel Pink, Trash Talk, Sam Spiegel (N.A.S.A./Squeak E. Clean), Jennifer Herrema (Royal Trux/Black Bananas), and Soko.
Plus, we discussed the ethics of LA's punk scene with Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness, Alice Bag of The Bags, Randy from No Age, and David Yow of Scratch Acid and The Jesus Lizard.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with Youtube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, Noisey.com reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE's signature offbeat coverage. Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site-music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.
