{Punk's Not Dead}


On the edge of the 30th anniversary of punk rock, Punk's Not Dead takes you into the sweaty underground clubs, backyard parties, recording studios, and of course, shopping malls and stadium shows where punk rock music prospers these days. Thirty years after bands like The Ramones and the Sex Pistols infamously shocked the system with their hard, fast, status-quo-killing rock, the longest-running punk band in history is drawing bigger crowds than ever. Nowadays “pop-punk” bands have found success on MTV, and kids (like those Wassup Rockers bunch) are forming bands that thrive for that punk raw, immediate sound. 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 kids. Can the true, nonconformist punk spirit still exist in today's corporatized culture? The documentary features interviews, performances, and behind-the-scenes journeys with the bands, labels, fans, and press who continue keep punk music alive.
