Storyline

'Play like the music doesn't matter.' The unbelievable true story of the band that gained massive east coast popularity in the late 1980s despite having a complete lack of musical talent and ambition. A powerful PR machine built their fame, and soon their primary objective was to invent new and creative ways to get kicked off stage without actually playing. Narrated by 'Alice Cooper', Skum ROCKS!, is a genre-bending film described by some as a true-life 'This is Spinal Tap', and by others as an independent 'Rock of Ages'. 'Skum Rocks!' chronicles the rise, fall, and return of this infamous band, giving new life to the tale of 'The Emperor's New Clothes'. Written by Anonymous

Rocking Doc
22 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Skum Rocks is the type of movie that gets stuck in your head when you're trying to fall asleep - something about the rock music, the zany characters, the unbelievable time line of the band, and the eccentric narrative the documentary prescribes really gives off a dynamite feel. The film does a great job of painting a picture for each band member, and not only who they are as an individual, but how they collectively come together to make their band such a train wreck. Yet, somehow, they keep chugging that train further into the ground. The film makes you want to sympathize with them, but the film also makes you see how crazy these guys were. You think - should I describe the things they're doing by 'genius' or 'insanely stupid'? It's not a story about how they became famous or how they got back together...it's a story of an epic, two decade long journey of so many highs and lows, the guys themselves can't keep track. It's obvious the passion behind why this film was made.
