‘Punk’s Not Dead’ hits the theaters

Punks Not DeadToday, ‘Punk’s Not Dead’, a documentary that covers the punk scene from its inception in 1976 to the present, makes it’s screen debut in Siskel Film Center, Chicago.

The documentary, directed by Susan Dynner, an self-proffesed American hardcore punk fan, consists of interviews with great personalities from the punk scene, together with some live performances from the major punk artists. Green Day, Sum 41, Ramones, Billy Idol, My Chemical Romance, Good Charlotte and Bad Religion are just a few names from the huge cast list.

From the producers:

Thirty years after bands like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols infamously shocked the system with their hard, fast, status-quo-killing rock […] “pop-punk” bands have found success on MTV […] Meanwhile, “punk” has become a marketing concept to sell everything from cars to vodka, and dyed hair and piercings mark a rite of passage for thousands of suburban kids. Can the true, nonconformist punk spirit still exist in today’s corporatized culture?

From what I’ve seen so far, on some youtube movies and trailer, i can say that it looks very promising and above all interesting. Check the movie’s website and the trailer for the documentary.
