Holy Shit! They're putting this awesome documentary on Blu-ray!

Even though the PQ will likely be awful, I definitely want it!

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Never heard of it. Seeing the cover art on Amazon, still never heard of it.
Looks like a hair band concert ??

It's a documentary on the early years of the punk rock scene in Los Angeles with the awesome music and bands I grew up with as a kid.

If it is the assumed video, yes, it is a documentary of the early punk scene. Although, I thought it was called The Decline of A Western Civilization. The A could be the difference between what I'm assuming it is and what it really is. Or, I could be totally wrong. After all, it has been a few minutes since Ive seen this or the part two that came after.

Also, part 2 was the "metal" version, which explored the early metal scene and it too was a pretty decent documentary. That could the "hair band" concert you saw.

Apparently this contains three films and will receive a 2K scan.
Includes:
The Decline of Western Civilization Collection (1981)
The Decline of Western Civilization, Part II: The Metal Years (1988)
The Decline of Western Civilization III (1998)

So one would expect to see varying degrees of quality here.
