Storyline

Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love and coffee and influencing a generation to come. FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows drummer and square-peg Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of band-mates to "achieve ALL," his relentless concept of "going for greatness, the utmost possible" despite any and all setbacks. Interviews with the band and contemporaries such as Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the untold tale of one of the most overachieving and influential bands in punk, serving as a reminder to always "go for greatness," because sometimes you're gonna get it.

Rev up your percolator and get ready to achieve ALL! in your knowledge of The Descendents/All!
8 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you don't already know The Descendents are a legendary punk band that originated in the late 70's. Alongside seminal bands like Black Flag, Minutemen, Circle Jerks and a plethora of others, they led the charge of early 80's SoCal punk rock. If you're a hardcore Descendents/All fan you will go nuts for this and if you're just a casual viewer you'll find it a very well put together, in depth look at one of the most influential punk bands of all time.

I've never written a review on here but noticed there were none for this awesome doc. It deserves one and a good one at that. The filmmakers are obviously huge fans and really put great efforts into getting great interviews! I put it right up there with We Jam Econo: The Story of The Minutemen as a must own for any punk rock aficionado! Check it out!
