    Punk is lifeless, actually. It died in 1995, while Richey Edwards disappeared. in actually actuality, it died in 1980, however the Manic street Preachers resurrected it, then it died back. Any band that asserts to be 'punk' right this moment is purely ripping off genuine punk bands.

    punk lives on in the heart of the people.

    this movie (which i ve never heard of before) is a sell out not punk coz whoever made it probably accepted loads of money to feature such crap bands.

    so its not punk that is dead but this movie.

    im sure the producer / script writer or whatever knows the difference between lets call them the two types or else he wouldnt hv mentioned such true influential bands.

    is this movie made in America coz it seems to have left out one of the most influential bands ever - cocksparrer

    anyway anyone knows where i can download this documentary??

    bands like the ramones, rancid, henry rollins (black flag), sex pistols would make sense to be in punk but I agree how does mcr, and all that other crud fall into a punk documentary

    There are a few crappy bands that dont need to be up there but w/e. A lot of them are really really good. Theres really not half more like a handful of bands that suck.

    I like both of those bands. But I don't think they are "crappy emo." They're definitely not punk though.

    MCR is not punk! Why would they insult punk like that? I wouldn't watch that documentary cause of that geez, if that's punk, punk is dead.

  • i consider My Chemical Romance to be punk but not the other this movie made yet?
