Hype! (1996) Trailer


Trailer for the documentary Hype!

Filmed over a 3-1/2 year period, "Hype!" takes a close, hard look at Seattle's "grunge" music scene, from its origins in the basements of young musicians in the 1980s to its worldwide popularity in the early 1990s, thanks largely to Nirvana's song "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Interviews and performance footage of Seattle musicians (both famous and unknown), provide insight into the history of grunge, most notably its effect on the music industry, and its exploitation by the media. the film contains the first live performance of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and rare footage by Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Melvins, Blood Circus, Posies, Seaweed, 7 Year Bitch, Supersuckers, and others.
