In the mid 1970s, a revolution was ignited on the streets of London and New York - almost overnight it shattered the status-quo, and it would continue to impact all future generations of youth culture.  It redefined popular music and fashion, threatened the establishment, and legitimized an independent, do-it-yourself attitude. 
With a star-studded cast of historic and modern figures in popular culture, this feature length film, Punk: Attitude takes a highly original look at this movement. Combining recent interviews with rare and famous archival performances, a chronological narrative emerges, allowing this incredible story to tell itself.
