IT'S NOT OVER TIL ROLLINS HAS HIS OWN CHANNEL

I heard tell of this . I know trailers have to sell the idea of what is tantalizing about a movie (in this case it's boy angst and nosebleeds), but when will American Punk and Hardcore stop congratulating itself? Can we just erect a statue of H.R. somewhere and be done? Do we need to further enshrine all those pits just so that some 44-yr-old DUDES don't feel like the eighties were a waste? Or is this about not letting it die without wrenching every possible buck from it's legacy? It surely will not die until Jeffrey Lee Peirce is raised from the grave so Gun Club can do Warped or Rollins hyperbolically claims punk was the best thing to happen to America since the freeing of the slaves---which ever happens first.
