The Decline of Western Civilization is a 1981 rockumentary film directed by Penelope Spheeris about the Los Angeles punk rock scene in 1979 and 1980. Over the years the film has gained something of a cult status.

Featuring concert footage of legendary Los Angeles punk bands, and interviews both with band members and with the punks who made up their audience, the film offers a look into a subculture that was largely ignored by the rock music press of the time.

Eerily, the promotional poster for The Decline (and the record cover of the soundtrack album) featured a close-up frame of Germs singer Darby Crash supine on stage with his eyes closed. Crash died from a heroin-induced suicide shortly before the film was released (the poster was designed before his death).

Bands included are Black Flag, The Germs, X, The Bags, Circle Jerks, Catholic Discipline, and Fear.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - "Runnin Down A Dream"

Its a 3-disc/1-cd combo with some incredible footage. If you are a Tom Petty fan, its a must-have!

Stairway to Heaven by Richard Cole is a great book about Led Zeppelin that they need to make into a documentary...

Some kind of Monster ( Mettalica ) and Stop Making Sense ( Talking Heads ) are great pieces of film-making IMO.

Oh man, that book would make one INSANE movie! lol Also "Let it Be" from the Bealtes(ha!) is a little deppresing, as it showed part of their downfall. Pink Floyd "Live at Pompeii" is a mix of concert(to no audience) and documentary, still a fav of mine. And VH1's Behind the Music had a way of making pretty much ANY band interesting somehow.(i.e. Leif Garrett) : P. And Bruce, I gotta find this Yesspeak you mentioned, sounds great. Oh yeah, Lamentations from Opeth is a good one. Shows the making of Damnation and Deliverance, along with a whole concert. I think I ll put it on right now in fact. Cool

There's a good one on the Arctic Monkeys out there, I forget the title, but I'll post when I remember it.

Also, there's a great one about The Who, I think it's called The Keith Moon Years or something like that. I thoroughly enjoyed that one, especially the segment on Keith Moon's antics when he WASN'T on stage, gave me a good laugh, LOL!

Yeahh, he plays Principal Skinner. And someone else... Still. GREAT mock/rockumentary. Rented it the first time, and liked it so much I bought it.

"Our first drummer died in a freak gardening accidents. One of those mysteries better left unsolved." LOL.

Hey, man, that's a good movie. I mean that in I will sit down to watch it instead of other movies. It's really not that bad.

Believe it or not, the copy I own my brother and I bought from Walmart some time ago....About a decade or more after it was premiered on TV.

I couldn't agree more Abe. That is one hell of a film. It's such a shame that it was given a bad wrap. The special features on the dvd really open the story up.

Many episodes of Classic Albums (Judas Priest - Bitish Steel, Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast, Jimi Hendrix - Axis Bold as Love, etc.). I always find it extremely interesting to find out what really went on during recording, like Priest using cutlery, a pool cue and guitar cord to get certain sounds on "Metal Gods".

One really moving rockumentary i've seen this year was "Heavy Metal in Bagdhad (sp)" It's about a band trying to play Western metal music in war-torn iraq.

Here's a few from my DVD collection that I love:

woodstock/woodstock diaries

the last waltz, the band

Anthology, The Beatles

25x5, the Stones

The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story

Standing in the Shadows of Motown

The Passing Show - Ronnie Laine

Festival Express

And, of course ... This is Spiinal Tap!

The "Classic Albums" series is wicked too - some real nice stuff worth checking out ...
