What happens when a punk rocker becomes a dad?

Now, we get to find out in The Other F Word, a revealing and touching documentary film that follows Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath and more as they embrace fatherhood on their own terms.

You’ll see these former anti-authoritarians navigate everything from bedtime and homework to singing nursery rhymes on the way to school.

Believe us, you’ll be laughing out loud (and crying!) throughout the whole movie.

Cannot wait to see this movie! It looks amazing! I love how it seems like a lot of these men got the gift of a daughter 😉

That looks hilarious…should I have tattoo’d my forhead lmao!

I have to say tho, what Flea said about his kids giving him life, and a reason, was absolutly heartwarming. Since he mentioned his parents weren’t around, I bet he treasures his family. I’m glad he is happy.

But what is Tony Hawk doing in this? He isnt a punk rocker!

Flea is one of my favorite all time musicians and after his comment about his kids giving him life and a reason makes me love him even more. It is so touching to see a group of Dad’s make a movie about the impact that the love of a child brings and gives to you and changes your life forever for the better.
