splatterbabble - 2009-11-27 I used to be an editor for a punk fanzine that was based off of Eugene from this movie. Good to see that other people have seen it!
Cheese - 2009-11-27 I don't think I know anyone who hasn't seen it.
StanleyPain - 2009-11-27 I saw it when I was very young, so it educated me to the state of American punk very early on. Though, when I saw it, Rollins had just become notable as Black Flag's current singer, so it confused me a little when he wasn't in it.
There's also a sequel which is all about metal.
splatterbabble - 2009-11-27 Darby Crash really made the movie memorable for me.
Syd Midnight - 2009-11-28 It's depressing because it's 1980 and these kinda guys knew what was really going on. "Metal Years" is depressing in a different way, and most of the bands are contemptible and clueless.
"Metal Years" is really easy to find in video stores, but the original is more obscure.
The Townleybomb - 2009-11-27 This was pretty much my fantasy lifestyle when I was sixteen.
HP Lovesauce - 2009-11-27 I've seen 'The Metal Years' many times but I embarrassed to say I haven't seen this yet. I need to sort that out.
I'm kind of amazed at how (relatively) normal and good natured these guys are considering how much they freaked people out.
Syd Midnight - 2009-11-28 This is what real punks look like.
