    Plot Outline: A documentary on the music, performers, attitude and distinctive look that made up punk rock.
    Plot: Punk: Attitude is a documentary on the history of punk rock in the USA and UK. The film traces the different styles of punk from their roots in 60s garage and psychedelic bands (Count Five, the Stooges) through glam-punk (New York Dolls) to the 70s New York and London scenes and into the hardcore present. Interviews with many of the musicians are edited with live clips and historical footage.

    Movie Quotes: David Johansen: You know, rock and roll had become this just be-denimed kind of, drum solo kind of thing, and what we wanted to do was bring it down to three minutes and put that Little Richard drag on top of it. And that's what rock and roll was to us, you know. We were just trying to make rock and roll, you know.
