In 1976 a cultural meltdown was occurring. From this emerged a new scene: PUNK ROCK. Controversial, colorful and chaotic, it was a slap in the face of the establishment and a cultural movement that is still ingrained in the public consciousness. This film identifies the roots of this movement that is still ingrained in the public consciousness. This film identifies the roots of this tradition from America to the U.K. and beyond showing that punk was not just a musical movement but an attitude of mind that is not, in any way static.

And includes footage from revolutionary punk bands New York Dolls, The Stooges, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Black Flag, X-Ray Spex, The Damned, Dead Kennedys, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Slits, MC5 and much more.
