Annotation

Set against the changing decades of music, we follow the band from their inception in San Francisco, to their search for a music label and a permanent drummer to their current status as indie rock icons. We see the highs―touring with Green Day―and the lows―homophobic fans―of striving for acceptance and success in the world of rock.
