Check out video of all the bands below, including the full Dag Nasty appearance.
Also among the videos below are a pair of appearances from HR (of Bad Brains), who played the BB classic "Right Brigade" with Black Market Baby and "American Justice" with Scream, as well as apperances from Alec MacKaye (of The Faith) and John Stabb (of Government Issue) on a cover of "Steppin' Stone."

Check out a pair of teasers from the movie below and look out for it next year.
In related news, as discussed Bad Brains: Band in DC, a documentary that details the band's roots in the DC hardcore scene and beyond, played at SXSW last week. So far, no plans to screen it in NYC but you can catch the band at one of two now-sold-out NYC shows.
The Irving Plaza show will ALSO feature an appearance from DC's Scream who played a show at Knitting Factory in 2010.
Bad Brains are also playing Bonnaroo this year.
