When Google Video stops working on April 29, it will be a huge loss to the interwebs. Case in point: the definitive alt-rock history documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke is currently on Google Video in full, and after the 29th, you’ll have to wait for it to come out on DVD in the fall of this year.
Dave Markey’s 1991: The Year Punk Broke is a slab of D.I.Y. rock history. Markey films Sonic Youth and some of punk and grunge’s legendary groups as they tour the European festival circuit. This is before “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was released and Nirvana went from being an underground band to an international phenomenon. Featuring Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Babes in Toyland, the Ramones, Mudhoney and more.
