He's trying really hard to be intense, but the shirt-buttoning move was beautiful timing.

Rule #1, don't let go of the mic.

what a prick. nice find.

Wonder what he'd say now, looking at this.
"Tales of an Asshole". I'm used to him telling stories about being an asshole, not watching him be one. He was probably thinking "I am sooo intense I just broke that guys soul".

I got a question for him, "Henry, why is Black Flag better when you aren't in it?"

"why you degrading yourself in front of me? You feel you have to do that?"

That was really uncomfortable to watch.

Ahh, macho asshole indeed.

Fuck yeah. Anyone who doesn't love Henry Rollins is too lame for punk or cam too late to understand it.

now I understand why Wattie dedicated "Fuck the USA" to Henry Rollins when I saw the Exploited

Henry Rollins LJ:
The drummer of my high school punk rock band was tripping on acid on the hipster street in St. Louis when he started running around yelling things as he usually does. He started yelling, "Hey look, there's Pat Benetar!" After which he ran after and freaked out some young punky girl. Then the saw a large man walking down the street and yelled, "Hey look, there's Henry Rollins!" and started charging after him. Everyone thought "OH SHIT" as he jumps up on this guys shoulders and starts hugging him from behind. Turns out it WAS Henry Rollins. Seems he was in town for one reason or another and a large crowd soon formed. The man took it well enough, as I'm sure he's used to rabid fans, but I have to give him credit for not beating my friends' ass. Turns out he's actually a pretty nice guy.

You look like some kind of warrior, man.

One night back in the very early eighties, I stopped by Troy’s restaurant in West Philly to pick up some beer and spotted two girls I knew sitting a table, so I went over to say hi. As it turned out, black Flag was also in town that night (having seen them before, I skipped to show) and Henry was also in Troy’s and he was hitting on the girls I knew, who were pretending to have know idea who his was. Frustrated with the perceived failure of two mohawked maidens to recognize him, Henry whipped out his dick and said “Well, you know what this is, right?” Without missing a beat, one of the girls said “It’s like a penis…yet somewhat smaller.”
Good times (not for Henry, obviously). Yeah, good times

"I know you are but what am I? Why are you hitting yourself? Stop hitting yourself." Also, this gives no clues about the origin of the Rollins Hulk neck.

I can't figure out who's the bigger douche here, the interviewer kid for trying to interview a band he obviously knows little about or the punk band dude who tried to be counter-establishment by destroying some Cameron Crowe wannabe's dreams.
I've liked Henry Rollins' spoken word stuff when I've happened to catch it, but there's a reason I don't actually seek out his material. He comes across as someone who believes that you can make people do the right thing by belittling them for doing the wrong thing, and making a point via intimidation makes you a douchebag in my book, no matter how honorable the point you want to make is.
Still, 5 stars for being an awesomely uncomfortable video to watch.
It has a few moments of nice timing, like how at first it's a couple of regular looking scene guys then the camera pulls out and you see Mr Sunshine standing there, just waiting for an excuse.

Five stars for Ben Affleck showing his hairy palms at 1:49.
But no, really, way to go Henry.
