Urgh! A Music War
You're 14 years old. It's 1982. You live in Squaresville, USA. You listen to Journey. One day, you stumble upon Urgh! A Music War on cable TV, and everything changes. You have about as much in common with the punks as your parents do, but you don't care. You've been freed from the shackles of your jejune midwestern life and are hurtling toward the nearest mosh pit. A collection of pre-MTV concert performances by X, Wall of Voodoo, Devo, the Police, the Go-Go's, Dead Kennedys, the Cramps, XTC and many, many others, this movie saved my life. Let it save yours.
