Where the hell was Op Ivy???
30 June 2001 | by AntiSKa830See all my reviews

THis was a good documentary, and it had some great information on the beginnings of punk, but it spent only five minutes on American hardcore, and it didn't even mention the most important punk band since the Sex Pistols....Operation Ivy! It completely ignored the ska movement, which was directly parallel to the punk movement. They were very important to each other, and ska should have been given the time of day.
