"It was a bit of a disappointment in all honesty. I'm a big Godsmack fan and I thought this was a really cool DVD when I was first starting to watch it. But about halfway through I found myself to becoming a bit bored. Sure things like the signing of the topless chicks, seeing them trash the dressing room, and Sully daring a guy 200 dollars if he could eat an onion was really cool. But I found myself to be disappointed because there were several parts that I felt were unnecessary and should have been removed. I was also massively let down when I discovered that none of the songs are shown in their entirety. I would love to see an entire song and not just a couple of seconds of it. The only complete song they show is when Sully sings Pantera's Walk with all the other members of Pantera. Also the Drum Duel between Sull and Tommy is really cool. Well, it's essential if you're a Godsmack fan, but other bands have been able to release better DVD's then this. Also there is no 5.1 sound option. I hoped this helped."
Might as well wipe your [backside] with it!!

"I am very angry with my purchase of this DVD. The cover promises songs, documentary..etc.etc... All this has on it is tour footage, and the band joking around, doing radio shows, signings, and it basically [stinks]. Why? There is no songs on this DVD (no complete songs anyway). It is all clips interupted by stupid moments the band has on the road. Basically your paying to watch the band flip off the camera, take showers, sign breasts, brag about how stoned they are, brag about their album, brag about them selves. This is the prime money cow in its massive glory. Step up one and all so you can start milking it. I love Godsmack, but this DVD will sure help to put a major negative in there popularity. One thing I should note: I do like back stage footage, and joking... but other bands manage to play songs in between (like pantera, metallica, etc)..."
GO ON TOUR WITH GODSMACK!

"This DVD is great! If your a Godsmack fan, make sure you pick this up. However, if you are looking for full concert footage and music videos, this is not for you. Godsmack has already released a concert dvd for you who want that, but for the rest who want to see a band when they aren't on stage, this is for you! This DVD has Pantera home video written all over it, as Godsmack takes you on tour with them, trashing dressing rooms, rocking crowds, partying with other bands, a full performance of Sully playing "Walk" with Pantera on stage, fighting, tour bus shenanigans,... It's what REALLY goes down backstage. Think of this DVD as your very own backstage pass into the rock n' roll lifestyle!"
Oh Those Crazy Metal Bands!

"Yes, we've all seen it before; demolishing dressing rooms, streaking, and of course those ubiquitous topless babes. Such is the life of many a rock band on the road and Godsmack is no exception. Still, this is pretty funny stuff that shows Godsmack; primarily goateed frontman Sully Erna; are fond of touring hijinks. The video starts by showing Erna and guitarist Tony Rombola doing Erna's laundry while high. Who knew doing whites could be so much fun? Later on, Erna pretends to be a gay reporter asking bassist Robbie Merrill stupid questions and later yet beats up Merrill's brother(a roadie) after he is depants on the tour bus. The video does offer a brief history and clips of early Godsmack rehearsals and various occasions onstage where Erna indulges his unpredictable side by: using malfunctioning guitars as sledgehammers, drunkenly jumping out onstage with Pantera and noticing that a fan in the fifth row has urine in a jar. It's a good life, if you can get it."
I can't get enough of this DVD!

"This DVD is a must-buy for any Godsmack fan. But please note, there aren't many songs in their entirety on the DVD, but the band more than makes up for that by taking you through the life of Godsmack. You get to see the guys (up close and personal!!) and see what makes Godsmack who they are-- a thriving rock force today! I have watched this DVD dozens of times, and still can't stop watching it. Sully and company will keep you laughing the entire way through! You ever get to see the guys from Pantera join Sully on stage to do "Walk." Buy it-- you won't be disappointed!"
