Product Description

New York film-maker Todd Phillips directs this hard-hitting documentary focusing on G.G. Allin, the controversial punk artist who toured with his band the Murder Junkies for fourteen years between prison sentences. Allin's violent and angry tirades culminated in his final New York performance, which resulted in several injuries and the near-expulsion of Phillips from New York University. Allin died from a heroin overdose soon after this film was completed, and was thus unable to fulfil his promise to commit suicide live on stage.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man That Punk Tried To Forget 12 Oct 2002
By Tanya
Format:VHS Tape
The definitive angry young man, GG Allin was a normal enough kid, but somewhere along the way he got disillusioned. Big Time. His stage performances made the Sex Pistols look like Josie and the Pussycats, but in between hurling abuse and faeces at the crowd, GG really had a message...why do we all have to be the same? And fair enough. If he wanted to split his head open on a microphone and stay in a permanent substance haze, why couldn't he do that? Well in fact he did, until he dropped dead from a heroine overdose a few months after this documentary was completed. The candid interviews with his friends and fans are part pure black comedy and part trailer trash horror, but ultimately it's a sad tale about a person whose potential was thwarted by a society who just couldn't let him be him. An honest, if not visceral insight into a unique individual. Watch it - but not while you're eating!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sign Of The Times 29 July 2012
Format:DVD
Firstly, let's be honest here: this has nothing to do with "Rock 'n' Roll". It's almost tiring to hear how many times RnR is referred to not only in this film but also in any reviews of Allin's output. People are just using this as some kind of justification as far as I can see. This is about voyeurism pure and simple; and I'm no better than any one else on this account - I paid for and watched the film also. But I hope I can be at least a little honest about my motivation here. My interest in Allin is akin to the kind of interest one would have in reading true crime novels about serial killers etc. The format allin was slotted into - music - is neither here or there in any consideration of him. I'm sure the Murder Junkies must know that their boringly - heard it all before - basic 12 year old's take on punk rock was of no interest to anybody. Nobody paid any attention to what was going on behind Allin - which is why he could be put on - on occassion - without backing. Frankly, it's depressing that our culture can view this kind of thing as entertainment. It has something akin to bear bating or illegal bare knuckle boxing fights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely Scary 3 Dec 2003
Format:VHS Tape
It is really scary to think that there could actually be someone like this. Hated is part rock n roll documerntary, part social study. After you have seen this, it will make sense why 99% of people have never heard of him.
Allin was a vile human being. As well as throwing sh** at his audience and beating them up at his poorly attended live shows, he reguarly beat his wife, the fact that any woman would actually see anything in him is a mystery.
His live shows are truly the stuff of legend. Allin never played a full set and rarely performed fully clothed. His shows reguarly drew the attention of the Cops and shows were often stopped by Police crackdowns and Allin would usually end up in jail. Sometimes he would be too drunk or smacked up to perform at all and, as shown in this film, the audience would occasionally fight back. All of this makes Iggy Pop's antics in the late '60s and the Sex Pistols gigs in the late '70s pale into insignificance. And its all true, absolutely no hype. In fact Allin performed an infamous gig at New York's Cat Club that resulted in him being banned from playing in NY for years.
The film tries to make some sense of a truly bizarre situation. Music is secondary after the violence and the shock tactics and it contains footage from violent GG gigs, interview footage of people who know him and bits from the Geraldo chat show that GG appeared on, but strangely no footage from the Jerry Springer show episode that Allin appeared on.
The only way you will get any real idea of what this is like is to watch it yourself because its pretty much undescribable and unlike anything else Ive ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars GG 7 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Im fairly sure you can watch this for free on youtube. but i wanted the dvd. Good little documentary basically everything you need to know about GG Allin. Todd Philips did a good job considering this was his first thing he did. i would recommend for anyone who is into the music of gg allin and the muder junkies or if anyone wants a good weird story about an awesomely weird dude.

5.0 out of 5 stars horrible man! 23 May 2011
By steve
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Facinating and repulsive at the same time! this vile man took live performance to a whole new level.the audience at his gigs stood well back while gg threw his faeces,blood and his fists at anybody foolish enough to be there! he was a horrible man indeed and knew no limits.me and my friends laughed like hell at the depravity!gg is no longer with us(he dies at the end of an overdose)but thats probably for the best.his funeral is included! Enjoy!
