An incredible journey through the punk rock underground. Are these kids socially deviant or just the "flower children of the '80's?" This seminal punk rock film tracks the tour of "The Better Youth Organization of Los Angeles" - basically a fancy name for several punk rock kids crossing the country in a dilapidated school bus. A few of these punks were members of the pioneering bands Social Distortion and Youth Brigade, and their raucous concert footage is captured here. This a fine pairing of visceral and exciting music with an informative sociological look into a youth subculture. Minor Threat also appears.

Brilliant DVD! Normally I don't easaly buy music DVD's but this one's different. Social Distortion and youth brigade on tour in the early day's. You just got sucked up in the tour for real. Realy great. The quality is also verry good! If you like Social Distortion as much as I do it's a must have. If you like punk just buy it too because this is what's punk all about.

This DVD is amazing. If you so much as like social distortion or youth brigade, buy this now. It goes over the earlier punk scene, and is just a great part of the bands history. I love it because its fun to see the band behind the music.

This movie was alright, only worth a watch if your intrested in the bands featured or the 80's scene in general. Mind you the clips of Minor Threat practicsing in the discord house had me rubbing jelly all over my manboobs!!!

Well I thought Social Distortion and Youth Brigade were good bands. Now I like em' even better. This is not just for Social Distortion or Youth Brigade fans. This is for anyone who wants to see what a punk tour is all about. GREAT documentary type film. GET IT if you are a punker.
