Bad Brains: Live At CBGB 1982

About the Movie

This breathtaking performance displays why Bad Brains became one of the most important bands in the history of American Hardcore. On Christmas Eve 1982, Bad Brains began their three-day stint at a Hardcore Festival hosted by legendary CBGB. This video represents the very best of these shows, culled from over 4 hours of footage. Their live performances were legendary, their visual recordings were impossible to find. Now, for the first time on video, that powerful performance is revisited in extraordinary fashion.

Customer Reviews

Bad brains CBGB.!!

Best show in history!!

Better Off Rented

While this compilation of three days worth of footage is iconic in cementing Bad Brains as not just one of but THE premiere hardcore band of the '80s, the video quality and sound quality are clearly lacking. It's also a tad frustrating how the camera focuses primarily on H.R. and Dr. Know, while there are only a handful of close-ups on Earl and next to no screen time for Darryl.

All-in-all, this is a great concert film to watch for long-time and new fans of Bad Brains. But rent it if it's your first time watching it.


looks kinda cool.
