SpacePirate's rating of the film The Decline of Western Civilization

Great doc. Def gives you a real sense of what punks were like. Unfortunately, they seem to be a bunch of dumb pseudo-intellectual elitist junkies. I always wondered why Minor Threat was the only punk band I ever really got into. After hearing the morons comprising the Germs and X wax poetic, I understand why. Looking back, punk is like the lowest of the low, musically. Fantastic music doc though. Solid 4 stars
