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 - What could have been.
22 July 2015 | by Kyle HardySee all my reviews

Have you ever been to a concert that showcased a terrible band? Well this documentary will most likely rehash that past incident.

I am sure you are familiar with the saying, "Work hard, play hard". Well Skum had the 'play hard' portion down quite well. Sadly, they didn't have much in the way of 'working hard'. This is a big reason for why most people have no clue who they are. I know it was the first time I had heard of them.

As for the documentary itself, it was well done and had a lot of comedic points to it. It's a sort of true Spinal Tap. I say it's worth a watch!

If you want to make it in this business, always work harder than you play. Ask Skum about that one.
