wiw vol 34 The Other F Word

2011 - NR - 1 hour 39 minutes
Streaming Netflix


What happens when a generation's ultimate anti-authoritarians -- punk rockers-- become society's ultimate authorities -- dad's? With a large chorus of Punk Rock's leading men - Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Rise Against's Tim McIlrath- The Other F Word follows, Jim Lindberg, 20-year veteran of skate punk band, Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band's anthem, 'Fuck Authority', to embracing his ultimately pivotal authoritarian role in mid-life, fatherhood.

Such a great movie - I grew up with a bunch of these bands and I think it is completely awesome seeing another side to them as parents. 

I don't have children, but I would like to think that while your whole world obviously changes when you are a parent..that you remain true to yourself and that your best qualities just get better...
