Recall: Punks Not Dead documentary (2007)

PUNKS NOT DEAD is a documentary film directed by Susan Dynner and it infiltrates American clubs, malls, recording studios, and everywhere else where it sets out to claim hardcore punk and pop punk music is “thriving” from an American perspective. Its content features performances largely from 1980s hardcore bands and MTV skate punk and pop punk/rock acts. It also includes various interviews and behind-the-scenes footage with the bands, labels and fans. See the full list of appearances below the flyer:
