What We Do Is Secret is the true-life story of Darby Crash, who became an LA punk icon before taking his own life in 1980. After getting kicked out of high school, Darby (Shane West) forms The Germs with a collection of friends who have little experience with their instruments or playing music: Pat Smear (Rick Gonzalez), Lorna Doom (Bijou Phillips) and Don Bolles (Noah Segan). After a few disastrous gigs, the band begins to click and Darby and The Germs soon find themselves the talk of the LA punk scene. When hard drugs enter the picture, Darby starts alienating those closest to him and when The Germs collapse, he’s at a loss to figure out what comes next. Following the rise and fall of The Germs, What We Do Is Secret takes you into the birth of punk rock in Hollywood and the rise of hardcore. Directed & Co-Written by Rodger Grossman and with the real Pat Smear as a music producer, What We Do Is Secret recreates the sound of the Germs and provides an insider’s look at the bands and icons of the punk era.

Rated R for drug use, language and brief sexuality.

Released by Phase 4 Films. See more credits.
