With Christmas on the way, Streetlight Records has the perfect stocking stuffer for the music lover in your life. On November 26th, Nothing Can Hurt Me, the story of Big Star was released on both DVD and blu-ray.

There are certain bands that are as influential as the Beatles or the Stones, but just can’t seem to get that mainstream break that brings them to the masses. Big Star is on the top five, if not the top of, that list.

Formed in Memphis in 1971, Big Star was Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, Jody Stephens and Alan Hummel. They are known as the godfathers of powerpop, with their Beatles-like harmonies and Rolling Stones influence. Through inner band physical altercations, solo careers and even the passing of Chris Bell, Big Star made a big noise in rock n roll, but they didn’t get the credit they deserved.

Instead of getting into depth about theses pop heroes I’ll let Nothing Can Hurt Me tell the story of one of the the greatest bands pop music history. Do yourself or your loved one a favor and pick it up. It will be on sale at Streetlight and playing in rotation on our TV screens just in time for the holidays. Here is a trailer to give you an idea of who Big Star is.
