Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love and coffee ... and influencing a generation. FILMAGE: The Story of Descendents/ALL follows drummer Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of bandmates to “achieve ALL,” his relentless philosophy of “going for greatness, the utmost possible."
After proving themselves to the burgeoning Los Angeles hardcore scene, guitarist Frank Navetta sets fire to his gear and disappears, bassist Tony Lombardo rejects life on the road in favor of a suburban home, and iconic nerd frontman Milo Aukerman goes to college to become a scientist. Stevenson, however, remains. Unfazed and hellbent on his quest, he charges ahead three decades with a new crop of tireless cohorts to zigzag the globe and serve up caffeinated love songs against impossible — and life threatening — odds.
Interviews with the band and contemporaries such as Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the untold tale of one of punk's most overachieving and influential bands.
