G.G. Allin was a musician and performance artist who was the human embodiment of everything dangerous, threatening, and unwholesome about punk rock, with absolutely none of its redeeming qualities. Allin's music was a fuzzy, incoherent blare that made the Ramones sound baroque by comparison, featuring lyrics that openly celebrated degradation, rape, and murder, and his performances (which rarely lasted more than ten or 15 minutes) usually found him far gone on drugs and alcohol, naked and rolling about in his own feces when not attempting to physically attack the audience. In short, Allin was not a musician so much as a one-man freak show, and he won a small but loyal audience as perhaps the most singularly perverse sociological phenomenon of his day before dying of a drug overdose on July 28, 1993 (failing to make good on his pledge to take his own life on stage). Filmmaker Todd Phillips spent several weeks in 1993 following Allin as he and his band the Murder Junkies (which briefly featured Dee Dee Ramone on guitar) attempted to tour, and Hated: G.G. Allin and the Murder Junkies is the result. The film features footage of several chaotic live performances, interviews with Allin and his bandmates, clips from television appearances (including an interview with Geraldo Rivera in which Allin tells the reporter, "My flesh, blood and body fluids are a communion to the people -- whether they like it or not"), Allin having some typically repugnant "fun" at a party, and a phone call from G.G. after he ran afoul of the law (a frequent occurrence in his short life). The home video release of Hated also features bonus footage of Allin's funeral and his final "concert." Director Phillips later went on to cover the opposite end of the rock spectrum with Bittersweet Motel, his feature on the improvisational "jam band" Phish. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

While some of the songs are actually funny, "suck my ass it smells" is a a great title. This documentary really gets under your skin. Your uncertain on whether you should laugh or solicit yourself down with "shock and awe".

Allin had some serious issues and had no problems letting people know about them. His fan base were just as startling. During one or two shows he strips down naked, defecates on stage and proceeds to eat his feces. In another sequence he forces a woman to perform oral sex on him. During a visit to NYU he once again removes ALL articles of clothing and proceeds to insert a banana up his ass. Later throwing pieces of it at shocked students.

One of the most memorable moments include a demand by G.G. that he would "not appear at his birthday party unless a woman shit and piss in his mouth". They found someone and we get to see it. He soon vomits and the audience is left puzzled.

He was an angry man with a horrible life and in some instances you can't blame him but in other regards you have to question his sanity.

During his cemetery one of his band members dresses up in a see through plastic suit, naked underneath. The film is both shocking but at times compelling. You can't help but feel sympathy for such a tortured soul.
