    Love the interviews but just not that into those bands so the performance footage goes on too long. I would have loved more talking with audience members!

    Proof that I’m old: I spent a good chunk of this movie wishing everyone would get over themselves and shower.

    Fascinating look at LA underground punk scene, that lets the bands and the fans speak for themselves. Spheeris does not intrude very much at all on her subjects, and lets the music and the youthfulness of the people involved fill in their own narratives.
