When I was in highschool, I felt a kinship to the kids in Suburbia. True, I never went to many punk rock shows (there weren't many left) and I never got in any fights with rednecks (there weren't many left, and the few that were were senile) but I liked the same bands (the early Vandals, DK, TSOL). Now that I see the movie again I see it as the ultimate expression of hopelessness. Wheresas in the movie the kid gets murdered, I work a dead end job, live in a shitty apartment and am completely dissatisfied with my life. I might as well be dead.
'Course I could be the Flea and start a multi million dollar rock band... Who knows..?
