These legendary documentaries have only been released on VHS until now. Penelope Spheeris' Decline of Western Civilization was perceived as shocking and outrageous at the time of its original release in 1981. Parts II and III were no less extraordinary and unprecedented. Today, museums and educational institutions around the world present them as historically significant works of art. Featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups of all time-Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Poison and members of Aerosmith and KISS-these riveting, unflinching, hard-core films adeptly captured the spirit of a major cultural phenomenon.

Very off the wall in it's time. The punk material very poor and missing the main acts. The metal section covers the interests of the hair and glam guys, but that's all. Not very well done.
