Writer-director James Merendino's film about two punk rockers living amid the strait-laced society of Salt Lake City features a soundtrack that includes all the usual suspects. Early punks the Stooges, starring a ripe and ready Iggy Pop, deliver their "1969" classic, and the Velvet Underground, starring a jaded Lou Reed, handle "Rock and Roll." Second-generation punks include Fear and, of course, the Ramones. As expected, several pretenders to the punk throne make an appearance: Generation X, with a young, eager Billy Idol, clotheshorse Adam Ant, and the Exploited. Rescuing things in prime form are the Dead Kennedys and the often overlooked Adolescents, a Southern California punk band who understood how to write 'em concise. Modern-day punks the Suicide Machine contribute Joe South's "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" with typically cheeky flair. The Big Chill for '80s punks. --Rob O'Connor

"Haven't seen the movie for ages but didn't it have Minor Threat's 'look back and laugh' at some point?"

"Alright, the movie was great, the soundtrack was really good but it was missing the Minor Threat song "Look back and laugh" It's weird, I like most the bands on the cd, just i wasn't very impressed."
