| Documentary with lots of music of L.A. punk rock band "X"
It has been said that X was to Los Angeles what the Ramones were to New York. But X was far more brilliant. Their musicianship was superior and their songs were clever and intelligent in a fun way. When you mix super-coolness with excellence you really have something special. Otherwise stated, what happens when you mix punk rock with true musical and artistic genius? One of the biggest travesties of fate in music, was the fact that they did not become commonly known nationwide and did not have the opportunity to sell out the larger arenas. There is still time for many more to be introduced to them by obtaining their albums and having the opportunity to see them perform live. Their first two studio albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, were ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as being among the 500 greatest albums of all time, and 1981's Wild Gift was named "Record of the Year" by Rolling Stone, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and Village Voice.
