Movie Info

Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma are lynchpins of New York Hardcore (NYHC), and their band Agnostic Front played a key role in defining, shaping and establishing the sound and cultural code of conduct for the still-thriving movement. Unlike the dozens of bands that have come and gone, leaving their indelible footprint along the way, Agnostic Front are still going strong, 11 studio albums into their 30-plus year career. In a landscape of increasing apathy and complacency, the messages Agnostic Front presents are as relevant today as they were in the '80s when the band members were impoverished, scrappy and ambitious, often fighting for their very survival as well as the perseverance of their volatile but highly inspirational band. Roger and Vinnie remain the very embodiment of hardcore, representing endurance, perseverance, brotherhood, strength against oppression and the will to keep going, obstacles be damned. Agnostic Front exist on a level all their own. . . a level of their own creation.

  • McFarland's doc is clearly a labor of love, and much of the vintage concert footage it contains is undeniably exciting.

  • Godfathers follows the two as they go about their business, with several scenes juxtaposing their youth to their current status as grizzled vets, their longtime punk outsider status morphed into as normal a middle-class existence.

  • Godfathers proves in entertaining yet profound fashion that true punks remain hardcore even as they age. As Stigma himself notes in one scene, "Once you're in... you can't get out."

    March 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There are two things that make this documentary a must-see. The first is Agnostic Front guitarist and de facto leader, Vinnie Stigma. He's a huge personality that I can watch all day.
