SLC Punk! (part 2)

So the SLC Punk soundtrack looks like definitely worth purchasing. It features, among others, the Suicide Machines, the Specials, the Ramones, the Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, and the Vandals. A bunch of excellent bands. Plus several more I've not heard of, but I liked all the music I heard during the movie, so I can only assume I'll like the soundtrack.

Also of note is that Stevo, one of the two main punks, was portrayed by Matthew Lillard, of Wing Commander and Hackers fame. But despite how utterly hilarious (in the "it's so bad, it's funny" way) those movies were, I thought Lillard did a good job in SLC Punk. He even got some kinda independent film award for his acting in that movie.

Some fun quotes from the movie: "I didn't sell out, I bought in."
Stevo to his parents: "I love you guys, don't get me wrong. But for the first time in my life I'm eighteen and I can say fuuuuck youuu!"
"See, to me, England was nothing more then a big fucking American state like North Dakota or Canada."

Oh, did I mention? This film ain't too friendly to England/Great Britain.
