Best Shops for Breaking Melrose Montony: Best Hard Heads Los Angeles 2008 

Headline Records

Headline Records deserves props for both its tenacity (staying alive while every other indie record store has died) and its consistently killer selection of punk, ska, rock imports and independent releases. There's also spiked and studded stuff for punk stalwarts, many of whom still hang outside the place and spare-change ya, just like the bad 'ol days. Headline may not be a hub for hardcore live shows anymore (that stopped in '02), but raw rebelliousness lives on via the posters, buttons, stickers and, of course, music — the noisier the better.
