It’s a lazy Sunday around these parts, so I figured we’d bring back your favorite series “Music Documentary Sunday!” This week we are featuring the 2006 documentary American Hardcore which focuses on the birth and evolution of the hardcore punk scene in the early ’80s. The doc features exclusive interviews with Henry Rollins, Phil Anselmo, Ian Mackaye, Moby and many others.
It’s a very entertaining film for those who are just entering the scene as well as those who want to relive the “glory days” of hardcore. I personally really enjoyed American Hardcore. My only real complaint is that the movie basically claims hardcore died in the ’80’s…. Whatever… Despite that one misconception, the film has managed to become one the most notable and extensive films on the history of hardcore; you can watch it after the jump –
