Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies

Hated is one of the most fascinating documentaries I’ve ever seen, having to do with one of rock n’ roll’s most violent, nihilistic psychopaths to ever grab a microphone. Here we can see that GG wasn’t just like that on the stage, but in real life as well, although it must be said that he’s more intelligent than people allow him to be. He was mostly looked down upon by the media (as you can tell by seeing footage from Gerardo and news shows) yet very well spoken for by two people in particular, the Hilter-moustache wearing Merle Allin and his superfan who’s name I forget right now.
There are a lot of memorable moments, including drummer Dino’s story about exposing himself to a child and saying “I was just teasin’ her…” , GG assaulting a woman during a spoken word performance, and the video featuring a woman pissing in GG’s mouth (causing him to vomit on himself, yum). The ending shows his funeral via drug overdose, very disappointing considering he always said he’d kill himself on stage. As a fan of GG’s music, I recommend this whole-heartedly. Directed by Todd Phillips, who’d later go on to direct fratboy comedies like Road Trip, Starsky & Hutch and Old School. 4 shit nuggets out of 5.
