MVD Punks It Up!


This breathtaking performance displays why Bad Brains became one of the most important bands in the history of American Hardcore. On Christmas Eve 1982, Bad Brains began their three-day stint at a Hardcore Festival hosted by legendary CBGB. This DVD represents the very best of these shows, culled from over 4 hours of footage. Their live performances were legendary, their visual recordings were impossible to find. Now, for the first time on DVD, that powerful performance is revisited in extraordinary fashion.

“The legend was real. The 1979-1983 Bad Brains were the hottest rock ‘n’ roll band ever, and those of us who saw them 80 or 90 times (there were several dozen of us in New York and their former base, D.C.), thought we were seeing a semi-monthly miracle. I still remember singer H.R. starting sets by declaring, deadpan “If you came to rock ‘n’ roll, you came to the right place”—the understatement of the century. 24 years later watching this video footage of a merely typical CBGB weekend, one is tempted to say, ‘See???!!!! That’s what we were talking about!’ (Jack Rabid, Publisher of BIG TAKEOVER MAGAZINE)
