Directed by Penelope Spheeris | 1988

Penelope Spheeris’ follow-up to her landmark punk documentary turns its attention to the 80s hair metal scene—this time with a much more jaundiced eye. Through interviews with Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, Ozzy Osbourne, Steven Tyler, and more, Spheeris paints an absurd, often hilarious portrait of the outrageous, sex- and money-obsessed excesses of metal culture that plays like a real-life This Is Spinal Tap.
