10 Great Documentaries About Punk Rock


This 10-hour TV series debuted in 1995 and featured a companion book written by music journalist Robert Palmer. Rock & Roll documented the evolution of various genres. Episode nine covered punk and featured rare and fascinating footage — like that of singer Patti Smith. Film of the artist was hidden away undeveloped in a fan’s refrigerator for 14 years. Smartly produced and not your typical “clip show,” check out part one and follow the YouTube links (or Dangerous Minds) for more.
