Set against the conservative early 80s political landscape, this film chronicles the homegrown hardcore scene that was a swift kick in the head to corporate rock and mainstream complacency, as disaffected teens adopted the same collective credo--harder, faster, louder. Features live concert footage and interviews with people involved in the scene.
Inspired by the book "American hardcore: a tribal history" by Steven Blush.
Originally released as a motion picture in 2006.
