Description by

Marking the 25th anniversary release of their smash hit, "My Sharona," Getting The Knack explores the group's controversial career via candid interviews with the original band, producers Mike Chapman and Jack Douglas, Sharona Alperin, (the inspiration behind their biggest hit), Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Rick Springfield, Elliot Easton of The Cars, Devo's Bob Mothersbaugh, comedian Weird Al Yankovic and many more. Narrated by Cherie Currie of The Runaways, Getting The Knack is augmented by scores of rare photos, previously unseen archival footage, and various Knack ephemera, all helping to provide a no-holds barred look at the rise and fall and ultimate resurrection of these quintessential power pop legends. Getting The Knack also includes vintage live, promo video and studio clips of "Good Girls Don't," "Frustrated," "(She's So) Selfish," "Baby Talks Dirty," "Another Lousy Day In Paradise," and many more Knack classics!
