X: The Unheard Music documentary

In 1977, the band X lit the fire that birthed the Los Angeles punk scene. Their impact on underground culture and music in California, and beyond, can't be overstated. X: The Unheard Music is a fantastic documentary that tells the story of the band, and where they came from. (Thanks, Patrick Kelly!)
