A documentary following the chaotic 1982 Canadian and American tour of punk rock bands Youth Brigade and Social Distortion. What starts off as an idealistic Do-It-Yourself act of youth rebellion quickly becomes a metaphor for the clash between the anarchic punk rock idealism and the harsh realities of concert promotion and touring without any safety nets against the worst case scenario (injuries, tour bus trouble, not getting paid for the gig, etc).
If you're into punk rock, you better check this out
I've basically watched this movie about once a year for the last 8 years or so. (Although calling it a "movie" isn't really correct...it's a documentary)
It follows around Social Distortion and Youth Brigade on tour..basically. That's the best way to put it. And at times it cuts off and shows us these kids who go to punk rock shows, and live in the street, all that stuff...that stuff gets sort of boring, but everything with the bands is funny or just good to watch.
Oh yeah, and we see some of Minor Threat in this movie, when they stay at their place...
Just check it out.
