Plot: Featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups - Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Poison and members of Aerosmith and KISS - these riveting, unflinching, hard-core films adeptly captured the spirit of a major cultural phenomenon. Part I documents punk rock musicians’ deliberate reaction to the mass commercialism of music. Part II takes a fast-paced look at the Heavy Metal scene of the late 80’s. Part III profiles hard-core gutterpunks living homeless in Los Angeles and their music.
