From Watchmen(1986, DC comic book mini-series written by Alan Moore, drawn by Dave Gibbons and John Higgins).

In the background of the comic, sorry, "graphic novel," there's an invented punkish-gothish youth subculture/gang called "Knot Tops." This band is shown on some posters in the background, indicating they're opening for more popular Knot Top band Pale Horse, playing New York City's Madison Square Garden at the climax.

In case you're all ign'ant, the band's name refers to Novemember 9th, 1938 in Nazi Germany. Properly spelled Kristallnacht (translated in English as "Night of Broken Glass"); Hitler's goon squads rampaged through Germany, smashing the storefront windows of Jewish-owned businesses.
