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

Skum Rocks!
12 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Skum Rocks was a great documentary, it truly allows you to feel like your in the position of these rock stars. Even though they are not very talented (music world) they still put on a great show and it makes for a great movie! You are really able to see how these group of men can basically fool everyone that they are this great band even though they have never put on a full show. Not to mention that Director Clay Westervelt does a fantastic job on exposing each member of the band and getting each one of their stories. I felt that it was a very well done documentary and everyone should take some time out of their day to view it. SKUM ROCKS!! (literally they rock)
