Did You Know?

Trivia

The music store depicted in the film is the interior of Sound Exchange, located at 1846 Richmond Avenue in the Montrose District in Houston, Texas. The "Sound Exchange" banner seen before the movie's end is actually the real banner used at the original location, at 1718 Westheimer, before the record store moved to its current location in 1997. See more »

Goofs

The end credits state none of Frank Zappa's albums received a Parental Advisory sticker, when in fact "Jazz From Hell" (ironically a purely instrumental album) was tagged with a Parental Advisory warning by the distributor. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the final credits, the movie cuts back and forth between the video for the Twisted Sister song "We're Not Gonna Take It" and shots of the movie's cast and crew dancing and singing along with the song. See more »

Highly Dissapointing
26 July 2003 | by (Walla Walla, WA) – See all my reviews

I was excited to they're going to make a movie about heavy metal violence but I did not enjoy this movie at all, while it was slightly a bit enjoyable, overall I was highly dissapointed in it, I wish that they would focus more on the metal bands than the government.

1/10, the only reason why I give it a 1 instead of a 0 is cause it had some slightly enjoyable parts.
