Film: The Rise and Fall of The Clash 
Several years ago, New York magazine noted the rise of the "Grup." The label is a contraction of "grown-up" and applies to adults who listen to music popularized by people 10 years (or more) their junior. An equally fascinating as-of-yet unlabeled phenomenon are young people who listen to old people music. See: People born in the mid 90s who listen to music made in the late 70s. The reverse-grup may have retarded popular culture, but it's also presented all kinds of new opportunities for intergenerational bonding. A teenager may not want to his dad going with him to a Lupe Fiasco concert, but what dad would mind taking his teenager to see a documentary about The Clash? "The Rise and Fall of the Clash" is not the best music documentary ever made, but the opportunity it presents old Gen Xers (born after 1964, but before 1981) to connect with their fashionably rebellious teenage kids is pretty much unparalleled in pop culture history.
