Woodstock 99

Has anyone else seen this? I’d love to get everyone’s thoughts. Here are a few of mine.

The Woodstock 99 Documentary posed a few theories about the source of all of anger from young (white, largely suburban) men in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Here’s one thing I didn’t hear. A lot of the music of the early 90s was fairly nihilistic. A common reaction of someone concluding that life is meaningless is anger and resentment (perhaps leading to violence).

Maybe we can draw a semi-straight line from Nirvana and Sound Garden (bands I still have great affection for) to Korn and Limp Bizkit.

    I thought the theorizing on what it all meant was the weakest part of the movie, especially with the suggestion Cobain's suicide destroyed empathy in the culture or whatever it was they said. It was really interesting otherwise though, I didn't know anything about Woodstock 99 other than some vague stories about DMX and Limp Bizkit that I was never sure were even real. Kind of shocked the organizers even showed up to be interviewed, not sure how they thought they'd come off but my main takeaway was that these dudes have blood on their hands from three generations.

    Definitely the most horrific movie I've seen in a while
