Have you all seen this documentary on the metal scene of the 80s? I liked it when I first saw it and thought it was a pretty good documentary overall. But I rewatched a few days ago for the first time in many years and I've got to say that the main impression I was left with was: What an embarassing thing for heavy metal to have the absolute immature, crude and moronic heavy metal musicians that made up the majority of the film! There seemed to be a directly inverse relationship between how "glam" a music was and how mature and intelligent they were. Dave Muscatine stole the show as the most real, determined, and insightful musician in the movie and his band Megadeth just happened to be the heaviest and most technically proficient band featured. I would give second place to Lemmy of Motorhead (R.IP.). He made a very smart comment about "moshing" when he said words to the effect that it was an attempt by guys to look tough but they didn't look tough to him; they looked stupid and were just making it hard for people to enjoy watching Motorhead play. I know when I went to see Motorhead play my only objective was to concentrate on the performance, taking in as much of what they were doing as I could. That's hard to do if you have to constantly be on the lookout for some drunk bum who isn't even watching the band and is about to run into you at full speed.
After Megadeth and Moorhead, the only band to come across as reasonably insightful and interesting was KISS - probably because it was just Gene and Paul and they don't get drunk or high. Everyone else looked woefully naive, immature, crude, and quite frankly, stupid.
