How do I start this? Okay, I'm not into punk music anymore. Since over a decade. Most bands in the movie I listened to when I was in my teens. Well, now you have all these guys from punk bands who turned fathers trying to cope with their new life style and the apparent "contradictions" with their punk present and past. The question for me is: how rebellious had they been in the past?? Or was it all mere show? I don't criticize the family aspect. I believe it is a part of life getting older and having children. My criticism is rather how established these guys get, living the same life anybody lives, engaging material values and so on. The real question remains: if they hated society so much as some pretend: why didn't they try an alternative life style with their family? Starting up communes or ecological projects are what so ever. I don't really see any political awareness with most of the protagonists except: f+?3 this, or f?$§ that. Really, they have become so common and the only difference is probably that they are tattooed and whatsoever while the rest of the family represents the typical suburban family, with the dad being a musician for profession. I acknowledge Ron Reyes since he took a big step and left everything behind and I don't know how much he would still consider his self part of the punk movement.

The movie becomes very repetitive, often the same views and ideas just coming from different mouths: "I'm on tour, can't see my children, have to earn money for them."..blablabla.... Way too long for such little information given.

Anyway. WTF were Blink 182 doing in the movie since they belong to the Post-Punk-MTV-era.....
