As a kid, I liked The Go-Go's as well as anyone who was, like, eight years old. I thought they had catchy tunes and whatnot. It was much, much later - probably in my late 20's that I was like "huh, actually, these are really, really solid pop songs." And I gave them some reconsideration.
Even back when I was a kid, I remember hearing "punk band" tied to The Go-Go's, and looked at Belinda Carlisle wearing pastels and with her hair up in a pony tail, and was like "what?" But later started kind of putting the pieces together, but not really.
The Go-Go's (2020) documentary hit right around COVID and got a lot of festival play, but it's a tough year for something like that. So, I was thrilled when it finally came to Amazon, because I would probably have just as likely paid for a ticket to see it in the theater.
