I love this movie even more now then I did back then. I think this should be a mandatory watch before your first purchase at Hot Topic. This movie gives me an odd sense of comfort when I watch it something I can't find anymore. I wasn't a "TR Kid" (figuratively speaking), but I knew them all, I hung out at the "TR House" you were always welcome there. They were my friends, my family, they were as accepting of you as you of them someone always had your back another thing you can't find anymore.
But enough reminiscing. I recommend this movie to anyone who was in the scene back then but you guys have seen it. I also recommend this movie to all the new school kids who think they get it. Punk isn't what you wear, punk is who you are.
