Notes The Decline of Western Civilization III is a 1998 documentary film, directed by Penelope Spheeris, that chronicles the gutter punk lifestyle of homeless teenagers. It is the third film of a trilogy by Spheeris depicting life in Los Angeles at various points in time. The first film, The Decline of Western Civilization (1981), dealt with the punk rock scene during 1980-1981. The second film, The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988), covers the Los Angeles heavy metal movement of 1986-1988.

Spheeris would later credit the 1998 film with having a profound effect on her. She began a relationship with Eyeball, one of the homeless youth featured in the movie, signed up to be a foster parent, and eventually fostered five kids.
