A very real trailer was just released for a very fictional portrayal of CBGB and its onetime Lower East Side neighborhood. The new eponoymous biopic of sorts, filmed in Savannah last year, finally has a teaser to its name.

One word – ouch. This looks like a bush league teen drama on the CW. Another word – cringe.

Alan Rickman Sheriff of Nottingham plays the leading role of Hilly Kristal. Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Ryan Hurst, Justin Bartha, Donal Logue, and Bradley Whitford also feature. CBGB drops October 11.

And there’s also a companion soundtrack to accompany the movie. It’s probably more enjoyable, anyway.  Tracklist for that is below:

1. “Life During Wartime” – Talking Heads
2. “Kick Out the Jams (Uncensored Version)” – MC5
3. “Chatterbox” – New York Dolls
4. “Careful” – Television
5. “Blank Generation” – Richard Hell and the Voidoids
6. “Slow Death” – Flamin’ Groovies
7. “I Can’t Stand It” – The Velvet Underground
8. “Out of Control” – Wayne County and the Electric Chairs
9. “Psychotic Reaction” – The Count Five
10. “All For the Love of Rock ‘n’ Roll (Live) – Tuff Darts
11. “All By Myself” – Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers
12. “California Sun” (Original Demo) – The Dictators
13. “Caught With the Meat in Your Mouth” – Dead Boys
14. “I Got Knocked Down (But I’ll Get Up)” – Joey Ramone
15. “Get Outta My Way” – The Laughing Dogs
16. “Sunday Girl” (2013 Version) – Blondie
17. “I Wanna Be Your Dog” – The Stooges
18. “Sonic Reducer” – Dead Boys
19. “Roxanne” – The Police
20. “Birds and the Bees” – Hilly Kristal
