Quotes

Billy Zoom: I have read a review of the Ramones in some trade paper, I think it was Rolling Stones or something like that, and they trashed them, said they were awful, the guy really hated them, he said they were dumb, they played these... He said all their songs were too fast, too short, only had three chords, no guitar solos, the lyrics were dumb, and it just all sounded like real positive things to me.

A great film about rock's greatest band
28 September 2000 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

A rock film, interspersing interviews and performances of X. Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, DJ Bonebrake, 4 incredibly talented, extremely charismatic people who formed a rock band in LA that should have been the biggest band in the world. They're definitely the greatest. This film, one of the greatest rock movies ever made, is extremely well shot, but after its over you long for MORE.It doesn't capture the excitement of seeing X live, but if you're a fan, you'll love it. SEE also: Urgh!a Music War(l981).
