Storyline

'Boom' tells the untold story of one of rock 'n' roll's wildest and most influential bands, The Sonics. For the first time ever, all five original members of the band tell the story of how it all went down, beginning to end. 'Boom' takes a deep dive, exploring how a relatively unknown band from the Pacific Northwest became a worldwide phenomenon 50-years after their heyday, and in doing so, shaped music for decades to come (whether it was apparent at the time or not). Featuring interviews with homegrown heroes and breakthrough artists alike, Pearl Jam, The Sex Pistols, Heart, Mudhoney, and many, many more.

What a great story within a story!
18 December 2018 | by jon-20507See all my reviews

This is a tremendous true tale of an unknown band that changed the world. The story of the Sonics is an amazing story unto itself, and the film also tells a wonderful story of how the filmmaker was inspired by his dad to discover this band with a cult following and then made it his mission that their story be told. There wasnt a dry eye on the house when the film came to an end. What a great film from a gifted filmmaker! Go Sonics!
