Long Live Rock … Celebrate the Chaos is a new documentary film chronicling a singular phenomenon that feels like a relic of the past, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic: slamming around in a crowded mosh pit at a hard-rock concert, as well as the overall relationship that music fans have with hard-rock music.

The film borrows part of its title from the Who‘s “Long Live Rock,” which was written in 1972, released in 1974 and, now, covered by Lizzy Hale and Halestorm from the film’s soundtrack.
