An incredible journey through the punk rock underground. Are these kids socially deviant or just the "flower children of the '80's?" This seminal punk rock film tracks the tour of "The Better Youth Organization of Los Angeles" - basically a fancy name fo

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the real "Real World/Road Rules" February 11, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Before MTV auditioned 7 people to live in an unbelievable house and call it "real", there was "Another State of Mind". Before 7 or 8 more people had the privilege to cruise in an awesome bus, there were the kids of Social Distortion and Youth Brigade clunking around in a beat-up old School Bus from the 70's!
In October of 1982, Youth Brigade lead singer Sean Stern had the idea to "tour" the U.S. along with a "pretty good" band named Social Distortion. The tour was a failure, but the footage of their adventures till this day is hilarious!
The interview of the local fans in the streets is very strong and candid. MArcell, the fellow who was run over by a car, is a very quotable individual. In DC with "Minor Threat", is classic...especially the Ice Cream shop footage in Georgetown.
A simple documentary about some punks before they became punk legends. It was very rare to see a young Mike Ness with the late Dennis Danell really working on the "Amother State of Mind" the song.
An absolute for the old-school punkers!

5.0 out of 5 stars USA's Night Flight... June 24, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Man, I had no idea that so many other people had seen Another State of Mind on Night Flight. I was 14, living in the middle of nowhere Alabama and INSTANTLY, as soon as I saw the punks on the screen, I popped a tape in the VCR cause I knew it was going to be worth preserving. That tape was my private treasure for so long. I never thought anybody else had seen it. Nobody in Alabama had anyway. Nobody that I knew. But I'd watch this almost every day for a couple years... except when they threw me in a psych ward for "disturbing behavior." I didn't even care that I was locked up, cause I knew people like Mike Ness, Shawn Stern, Ian McKaye, the roadie dude that kept fixing the bus when it broke down, Marcel all banged up but so full of hope and inspiration, even the surfer dude roadie with his daily dye jobs... and the music... it took me a couple years to track down the Mommy's Little Monster tape, and man was I thrilled when it had the title song from this movie on it... "Another State of Mind" was the first song I learned to play on the guitar cause I could watch Mike play it on the screen and know where to put my fingers... so much has happened since that fateful night watching cable while my folks were out of town, but this is where it started, thanks to Night Flight and this (now!) classic documentary of a small slice of a very large scene/culture, but what a tasty slice... made me want another, and another, and another...

Format:VHS Tape
In 1982, a movie was recorded that would be known for years afterwards. ANOTHER STATE OF MIND is a documentary of 2 bands, Youth Brigade and Social Distortion, on tour together, going through the mishaps and turbulations that every tour has with it. The troubles include the bus breaking down everywhere, shortage of money, personality clashes, people splitting home, and so on. It's a fascinating look at youth culture as well, with interviews of young punks from all over, as well as a short bit with Minor Threat, with whom the band is staying with while stranded in Washington D.C. It's an excellent movie and highly recommended for any punk or music fan. END

4.0 out of 5 stars "Nightlife" August 28, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Just to see little Mikey Ness with no tattoos and Ian McKaye happily scooping ice cream is worth the trip alone. Also watch for Mike Brinson, the "Roadie Extrordanaire" who gets majorly "bummed out" because nobody is "flowing him any brews" and he can't wait to "go back to the beach" dude. And the psycho-guy who goes off about The Cramps. There is also some really cool footage of punkers pulling off stuff that would never fly today at alternative rock shows, such as slamming and skanking on stage with the bands (look for the uncredited Circle Jerks and Bad Religion), and the non-stop acrobatic, lemmings like stagediving. The most inexplicable and dopey part of this film however involves a scene where three kids "pratice" stagediving into thier pool. With all the legendary and infamous characters who used to inhabit the LA punk scene to choose from ,the filmakers chose to concentrate on these three .... Oh well I guess they were just "living thier lifestyle".

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! September 5, 2004
By johann
Having already owning "Another State Of Mind" on VHS, the only reason I bought the DVD was to hear the commentaries.

The Mike Ness/Joe Escalante commentary is pretty funny even though Mike can' really remember much, but the Stern Brothers commentary is excellent.

They point out all the fake parts of the film and the wrong locations.

I haven't listened to the filmakers yet.

It's such a shame that they shot so much footage, yet this is all of the extra features we get.

Oh well, it's still a classic.

I wish the Decline Of Civilization would hurry up and be released!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 80's Punk June 1, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this on Night Flight when I was like fourteen and was totally hooked. I have been looking for it for a long time. A great 80's Punk film with vintage footage of some great bands. I was always a huge Minor Threat fan as well as Social Distortion, so this film had to be in my collection. More kids from this generation need to see this film so they can see what "real" independent music and touring was all about. I often wonder what ever happened to some of the individuals that were featured in the film; Shaun Stern, how about an update?
