Saw this twice in the theater when it first came out in '81. By then we were used to The Ramones, Clash, Sex Pistols.. but the LA punks on screen seemed scarier and a lot more violent (slam dancing was just starting to happen then). Except for X who seemed like Patti Smith-style hippie/punks. X and all the other bands in this movie kicked ass, and this movie REALLY needs to get released on DVD. One of the great rock documentaries.
