"Punk's Not Dead"

Yesterday afternoon I was lucky enough to be handed an invitation to the final screening of the documentary, "Punk's Not Dead," directed by Susan Dynner, showing in a small viewing room at the Grey d'Albion Hotel around the corner from the Palais des Festivals. Somewhat reminiscent of vh1's 3Behind the Music" shows, the film was well paced, informative, humurous, and of course had an awesome soundtrack. Starting with the roots of Punk Rock in the late 70's/early 80's, they analyze the history of the underground revolutionary youth social movement, and everything that went along with it. They then go into the coming of the second wave in the mid-ninties, and discussed how punk crossed over into mainstream culture. Through interviews with punk (or "pop-punk" for some of them) bands (such as Rancid, Green Day, The Offspring, UK Subs, Bad Religion, Blag Flag, The Used, Sum 41, and many many others), as well as music industry producers, DJs, and magazine writers, they discuss debates about the definition of punk rock, what it means to be a punk rocker, and the influence of corporate sponsership and what consitutes "selling out." Whether you are a major fan of punk rock or not, learning the history of a major cultural movement is interesting to learn about.
