I will say this... If you are a fan of REAL punk rock, this is the best film you will ever see. The live footage is insanely good. The interviews are brilliant. There are tons of documentaries about the New York punk scene, that you see everywhere. There aren't many about the L.A. punk scene because Spheeris did a perfect job getting it on film, and noone had the gonads to try after her. If you find a copy of this hold onto it tight. I'm on my third copy since 89' & they aren't easy to come by. Hopefully all 3 of the declines will be released on dvd someday soon.
Do you know something we don't?
