* {{Tragedy}}: Joe Dick's character arc is a variation. When his bad decisions all start closing in on him, the results are not pretty.

''Hard Core Logo'' is a 1996 Canadian {{mockumentary}} directed by Bruce [=McDonald=], based on a Canadian experimental novel written by Michael Turner in 1993. Both works center around the reunion tour of the titular massively dysfunctional Canadian punk band, and the interactions between the band members, but the movie changes and expands on the novel in various ways, adds some additional characters (particularly "Bruce [=McDonald=]," the director of the documentary) and character traits (such as John's schizophrenia), alters the ending, and has a bigger fandom.

[=HCL=] gained additional popularity when it was discovered by fans of ''DueSouth'', since lead guitarist Billy Tallent (later the namesake for the popular Canadian band BillyTalent) was an early role for Callum Keith Rennie, the actor who played Ray Kowalski.

!!''Hard Core Logo'' contains examples of:

* TheAlcoholic: both Joe and Billy.
* CanadaEh: mostly avoids the usual stereotypes, as the main characters are from the West Coast and not particularly polite, but this gets invoked during the "Canadian Punk Band Name" game on the road trip.
* ClusterFBomb: very much so.
* CoversAlwaysLie: the cover blurb promoted it as a ''SpinalTap'' style comedy, when in fact it's a character-driven drama with some funny moments.
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]
* DysfunctionJunction
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Billy Tallent is just too pretty.
* EverybodySmokes
* LickingTheBlade: Billy, during the acid trip sequence. This scene is [[FetishFuel popular with the fangirls.]]
* ManChild: Pipefitter, the happy-go-lucky drummer who likes sandwiches and can't even remember his real name at this point.
* MindScrew: the acid trip scene.
* OffTheWagon: Billy, when he gets back to Canada.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Pipefitter.
* RedOniBlueOni: a Western example. Joe's the passionate, outgoing, and impulsive one, while Billy is more calculating, ambitious, and quietly charming.
* SanitySlippage: John after he loses his meds.
* SignatureStyle: road trips and rock music are recurring elements in Bruce [=McDonald=]'s work.
* TalkativeLoon: after he loses his meds, John eventually progresses to this point.
* TroubledButCute: Joe and Billy, although they're older and even more screwed up than usual for the trope.
* UnreliableNarrator
