SFDocFest: I FORGOT WHAT 8 WAS FOR: THE 80S ALT ROCK SING-A-LONG

On Closing Night we celebrate 80s Alt Rock with a playlist of some of the hit music videos of 120 Minutes and other fringe music programming of the years between punk and grunge. In the 80s, “alternative” in Alt Rock actually meant something. The alternative to pop music, to R&B, to classic rock. Some of the bands that started out on the college-radio circuit became huge pop stars, like U2, REM, and The Police. Others built giant cult followings, like the Violent Femmes, The Replacements, Madness, and the Pixies. We know you know all the words, but just in case, we’ll have the lyrics on screen for you to sing a long to.

100 mins.
