Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies is a 1993 documentary film about the life of GG Allin, a punk rock musician who was infamous for excessive behavior (drug addiction, alcoholism, physical violence) and his stage shows became confrontational events involving indecent exposure (stripping and performing naked was one of Allin's most common rituals), onstage, physical assault (both on and by Allin), and obscene language. The filmmakers shot additional material on his death (from a heroin overdose during post-production) for inclusion in the film. It is also the directorial debut of Todd Phillips who was a junior at New York University during production and has directed highly successful mainstream comedy films, such as Old School, Starsky & Hutch and The Hangover trilogy.

While GG Allin's own musical releases received a generally negative response from critics as well as a polarizing response from punk fans, the Hated documentary has achieved critical acclaim.

GG Allin attended a screening of Hated just days before his death. While the film was being shown, a heavily intoxicated Allin threw several beer bottles at the movie screen, one of which injured a woman. As a result, the screening was halted and Allin fled just before police arrived. Although he never saw the complete film, Allin was happy with the light in which Todd Phillips had portrayed him, and gave the director positive feedback and a hug the day after the screening.
