The movie clocks in at about 90 minutes and features interviews with: The Briefs, 7 Seconds, Fat Mike of NOFX, Ian MacKaye, and many more!Taken from the premiere at The Mink Review:"It starts off telling of how the Youth Brigade first got into Punk, and follows them all the way through: starting Youth Brigade, Starting BYO, changing to The Brigade, Breaking up, Getting back together, and Re-Starting BYO. They went through a wide variety of side-topics: the problems between Punks and the Police, the increasing violence at Punk shows, and the increasing difficulty to play shows, and keep the scene alive. The movie can be serious, then hysterical 2 seconds later, and then serious again. There are lot's of great moments, and lot's of great quotes. One of the highlights is everybody looking back at the Another State Of Mind documentary(especially the how-to be in a pit section). Put short, Let Them Know is: detailed, entertaining, inspiring, and Punk..."Bonus Features: They Include: Bloopers, A segment where they ask people what they think the BYO logo is, a Music Video, Ian Mackaye talking about recording Bad Brains & 7 Seconds, and lot's more great Punk Stories.
