Storyline

Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love and coffee and influencing a generation to come. FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows drummer and square-peg Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of band-mates to "achieve ALL," his relentless concept of "going for greatness, the utmost possible" despite any and all setbacks. Interviews with the band and contemporaries such as Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the untold tale of one of the most overachieving and influential bands in punk, serving as a reminder to always "go for greatness," because sometimes you're gonna get it.

FINALLY A DOC WITH NO HENRY ROLLINS
23 April 2019 | by sometimelaterSee all my reviews

Descendents are one of a kind. all the songwriting is so unbelievable. bill stevenson is the bionic man on many levels. ALL. it's so rare & nice to see recognition when there was none. a well produced doc, could have perhaps been better by including some more live music or studio stuff, but still how could this get anything less than 10 stars. they did a good job at telling the story. could have been longer. amazing story, amazing people. incredible, valuable, tight musicians.
