The real history of rock
21 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary as a teenager and it changed my musical tastes forever. At the time, I thought the classic rock that I heard on the radio was the best music had to offer. Because of this documentary, my eyes were opened the roots of rock as well as punk and rap. I learned about groundbreaking groups such as The Velvet Underground, Richard Hell, The Modern Lovers, Afrika Bambattaa, and other acts that changed music history.

While other documentaries spend time with who was popular in certain decades, this documentary shows you the real pioneers and introduces you to the most critically acclaimed acts in each genre. You actually understand how music evolved through this set.

Like anything, it's not perfect. They are missing some important acts, but this is far superior to other rock and roll documentaries that I have seen.
