"Get Thrashed" is a film that traces the rise, fall and impact of thrash metal; from its early years, through its influence on grunge, nu-metal and today's heavy metal scene. It is the story of the heaviest, hardest music of the 80s and early 90s as told by the bands that lived it, the fans and bands that grew up on it and by the artists that carry the “thrash metal” flag today.

Along with Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett, the film features interviews with members of Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Godsmack, Hatebreed, Testament, Overkill, Death Angel, Shadows Fall, Meshuggah, In Flames, Dark Angel, Strapping Young Lad, Stone Sour, Superjoint Ritual, Lamb of God, and many others. Music from Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Kreator, Suicidal Tendencies, Ulysses Siren, Warning SF, and Pantera provides a soundtrack for the film.

The movie was directed by Rick Ernst, who has been a freelance and staff producer for MTV Networks for the past 10+ years. He has produced and written numerous shows including Headbangers Ball, 120 Minutes, MTV Cribs, 25 Loud (w/ Jimmy Kimmel & Jack Black).

At this point, there are no plans for a wider release. (Sigh!)
