If one had to give Refused a comparison it would be The Beatles. What The Beatles did for the 60s is what Refused has done for the underground today. Refused Are F_cking Dead follows their short lived history from 1991 to 1998 with video clips put together by guitarist Kristofer Steen. The documentary is both shocking and dramatic as it traces the decay of this revolutionary band. If you're a fan you'll be more than happy to find out that there's an entire concert performance of The Shape of Punk to Come (arguably their most important album) and videos for "Rather Be Dead" and "New Noise." The downside? The length of the documentary alone doesn't even round an hour (althougth the entire DVD encompasses 80 min). In addition to that, 85% of the documentary (give or take) is in Swedish, so have your finger on the subtitles button before you start viewing it. If you listen to underground music then this is worth your $10 because chances are any underground (or even above, Lost Prophets cited Refused as a major influence) you listen to has been touched by Refused.
