Released on July 8, 2008

Punk's Not Dead is more than just a tribute documentary. It takes you on an era-by-era journey that puts punk rock's non-conformist reputation under the knife. Officially sanctioned by the bands in the film who donated personal photos, fliers and home videos, Punk's Not Dead follows the evolution of punk music from its anarchic roots, to its use as a corporate marketing tool and acceptance into popular culture, to its reinvention in today's underground scene. It features such bands as The Adicts, Bad Religion, Black Flag, The Damned, The God Awfuls, Good Charlotte, Green Day, Minor Threat, NOFX, The Offspring, Pennywise, The Ramones, Rancid, Social Distortion, Stiff Little Fingers, The Subhumans, Sum 41, UK Subs, The Used, and many, many more. Director Susan Dynner's first-hand experience of Washington DC's punk scene in the Eighties and her continued love of punk music spurred the making of this self-financed, independent documentary true to the D.I.Y. spirit of punk culture. Punk's Not Dead combines intelligent, insightful commentary with live performances, behind-the-scenes anecdotes and a killer soundtrack.

I was really anxious to watch this movie, so I bought it. But I was really disappointed. It was just horrible in my eyes. It didn't cover a lot of history of punk rock. I thought it missed a lot. There were some good parts but I had higher expectations for a movie called Punk's Not Dead. But thats just my opinion. You may like it you may not.

I've watched it once, and I was a little bit deceived by the band covering. The director passes most of his time with british acts, such has Subhumans, that part was intersting, but I would've pass more times about the 90's revival, which AMerican Hardcore doesn't focuses on.

The documentary lacks on rhythm, but the DIY spirit that emerges from the movie is it's strong point. THe ideology behind the projet worths buying the movie. I did prefered American Hardcore, but still it's ideology was a little bit too much neglecting recent punk activy. So, when Punk's Not Dead arrived I thought it was the answer I looked for in the previous movie, well not.

Still a good movie for people who wants to know about the movement, the spirit and the bands. I still think that American Hardcore is a better movie

I wasn't sure on whether or not to buy this DVD. After watching American Hardcore I wasn't really too pumped on this one, but after awhile curiousity got the best of me and I decided to buy this. It's actually a pretty good movie. It's does a pretty good job of showing two sides to a topic. Like whether or not Good Charlotte, My Chemical Romance, and bands along those lines were punk or not. So in the end it kind of let's you decide whether or not punk rock is dead or not. It even had a part on punk houses which I thought was pretty sweet. The one problem I had, when they would talk about today's underground, is that it seemed like they focused more on street punk and genres along those lines. Which is alright, because there is one, but there are other types of bands and genres that also have a strong scene. Like the reviewer below me said, it would be cool to see a movie that focused on the 2nd wave of punk up until today. But who am I to complain? I'm not out there making a movie, and I think they did a great job with this one.

This was good, but i'm not sure it was worth the wait. I have heard about this for 3 years or so (kind of like that damn Germs movie that is still not on DVD). I think this is a good watch and I think the producer had so much footage (interviews) so it must have been hard to edit it down into one documentary (plus there is almost 2 hours in bonus footage). Perhaps the director should make a second part with the extra footage they may have. The problem is that there is so much to tell in the story of punk rock from the late 70's to present day. I wish someone would finally make a punk documentary focusing on the "Second Wave" of punk (1990's). The first wave has been covered. No offense, but i'm getting sick of seeing some of the usual suspects in all of these friggin documentaries. Although kudos for having Mike Ness in the film (something other film makers have not done yet). Subject is covered, let's move on. But I should say something positive about the director's work. I did love how they showed how the old bands like Angelic Upstarts, Addicts, UK Subs, GBH are still going strong and have a loyal audience that is still building after 30 years. So thanks to the director for making space in the film for that. This DVD is worth your time.
