This DVD is a documentary of punk and hardcore music. The whole movie is interviews with various bands and fans outside shows. The special features are pretty good and the actual movie is good for the most part, it just seems kind of long and drawn out to me. But there is two pop bands in here, don't really know why they're in a punk/hardcore documentary. There is part of an MxPx show and an interview, and there is an interview with Blink 182 in the special features.

As I said, the movie consists of interviews from bands such as Sick of It All, Madball, MxPx, and many, many more. There is also a section talking about straight edge where a fan or two talks about it and I believe a few bands do as well.

The special features are great. There is a live Hatebreed performance, a Greg Gaffin (Bad Religion) interview, a Blink 182 interview, Moshing 101 (hilarious), and it shows the director and crew's journey to the film festival.

All in all, a pretty nice watch, but like I said earlier, it seemed to take forever when I watched it. I suggest watching in segments. It would have been nice to have this when I was getting in to punk and hardcore, but still I suggest you get it even if you have been in to it for a while.

blink was never cool to listen to. unless you like shitty music and lyrics about urinating on yourself.

Yeah, we need this to tell stupid mall punks that punk started in the early 80s, now the mid 70s. My bad. I guess the hundreds of punk bands that had broken up by 1980 dont count.

what an awful movie. Favorite line:

"I don't understand stadium shows. Dude, if you can't throw a kung-fu kick to your band... If I saw Sick of It All in Madison Square Garden, I'd beat the shit out of the guy sitting next to me..."

Remind me never to go to New York.

this video is terrible aside from some funny comments here and there. there is so much footage of terrible bands and it is lacking a ton of footage on good bands. side note: wuss-emo-rock is the worst person in the world.

i bought this on vhs ages ago, watched it once and loaned it to a friend who i still haven't gotten it back from. i totally forgot about it until seeing it's picture on this review. i'm not going to bother asking for it back

i actually though this was a great documentary. i don't know what all of you are talking about.

When I watched this DVD it proves how fucking stupid it is to go out a label a scene. I didn't like how it made out everyone to be big mean guys that just beat people up. I'm sorry I grew out of the "what punk means" phase a long long time ago. When I bought the DVD I was expecting live performances of the bands listed on the cover not necessarily a lame ass documentary so I think it is decieving in the since that it makes you think that there is more to it then just the lame ass documentary.

i bought this lame ass thing years ago and was extremely dissapointed

Anonymous (January 15, 2003)

I saw this thing years ago. Man, there like 30 bands on the cover, and each of them get like 9 seconds of screen time. Theres nothing really revelant on this, I was pretty dissapointed.

doesnt go into enough depth about the roots of punk... when it was something new and shocking. But its okay for what it is.

X straight edge in your face x

I think its really interesting to hear the band's point of view on music and the scene. Even if its a five year old movie.

whats his name from Face To Face comes off arrogant as shit.

Vien (January 14, 2003)

The only interesting part from the DVD was the Documentary itself. Most of the bands they interviewed were pretty boring, especially "Blink". Good Riddance was awesome though, even if they only had 20 sec of thier footage.

pwfanatic (January 14, 2003)

the moshing 101 is by far the most entertaining part of the dvd. definitely worth the money.

Melvyl (January 14, 2003)

i've been wanting this dvd for a year now.. god damn...

i don't like dvds and i can't get it in pal vhs...

i really really wanna see this one, i've heard so much great stuff about it.

Anonymous (January 14, 2003)

This DVD was a total let down. It heavily advertised Bad Religion, yet all we get is a very short Greg Graffin interview. And there isn't a single performance of a single song by any band on here in its entirety. I understand what the filmaker wanted to do, but this thing just drags on.
