Why is this NOT in the Top 30?
8 May 2005 | by (US) – See all my reviews

C'mon folks... This is the Spinal Tap fan-base without the script!!! Heavy Metal Parking Lots are now a thing of the past as cops patrol and the bands are more about being depressed and less about the RAWK! Back in the day, 20 years ago, the parking lot was where everybody was allowed to get messed up before a show. For those of us who lived it, the movie presents some of those people we met all those years ago.

The editing is what makes this work. Sure, the film concentrates on the basest members of the band's audience, but it is really fun to laugh at how we ALL loved the rock and roll spirit in the 80s that had been handed down to us from the 1970s.

A classic timepiece that needs to be treasured forever.

Great movie.
