"From the first punch to the last chord," Volume II delivers a non-stop, in your face, visual and auditory glimpse into the dark and violent world of underground hardcore and punk rock. Featuring live performances and interviews from such bands as Blood for Blood, Death Before Dishonor, and Righteous Jams, and featuring never-before-seen footage from bands such as Wrecking Crew, In My Eyes and Ten Yard Fight, this sequel DVD has, in many eyes, already proven itself to be the hardest and most graphic look at the hardcore scene ever. Backed with exclusive interviews by founding members of Boston's notorious F.S.U. gang and scored by a soundtrack of some of Boston's hardest music, Volume II, tells the story and history of Boston hardcore from past until present.

This documentary makes me sad. I am from Massachusetts, and to think that there are people like this in my state doesn't scare me it makes me ashamed of where i come from. this documentary was made by egotistical assholes. There isn't much of a hardcore scene where I'm From but It's here none the less. We take pride in our little "family as i like to call it. Much like the kids from Boston do. We,however, do not take it to the level of the FSU. Hardcore started from punk, simple as that. there is nothing less punk than forming and organization that forces their beliefs on other people. I have attended shows that involved FSU and i can tell you that THEY are not straight edge. I want to make that clear because everyone turns around and says that Straight edge is a gang blah blah. this movie just proves to all the skeptics and conservatives that it is.
"It Doesn't matter where you're From..It matters where you're at." Let me remind you that this man the ,singer from blood for blood, is an alcoholic junkie much like Sid vicious. he is not a credible representative of the Boston hardcore scene. why they don't have frank pierce speaking on behalf of the scene is beyond me. the point i think I'm failing to make here is that straight edge is not represented by this home movie. There are a lot of positive things about the Massachusetts hardcore scene i did not see any shows from bands like "the hope conspiracy" or "step Forward" these bands believe in straight edge and every show i have attended has been nothing like the ones i saw on this movie. a better documentary about both sides of the straight edge scene is one by the national geographic channel called inside straight edge.
Now I'm not saying that the scene is all good. its not but i believe that not all Boston hardcore was fairly represented here. these are the jocks that ruined the shows for people like me and my friends.
