The first 20 minutes is just a definition of the word PUNK!!! Also every critic, author and the occasional fan is quoted as to the meaning of PUNK. This reminds me of a badly done college essay where a student has to write a certain amount of words, needlessly adding crap just to get the amount of words in. Just really poorly done and a waste of money.
