This comes up once in a while and I'm always jumping in and plugging my own film. Shameless self promotion I guess, but I'm proud of it and always felt tiny bit overshadowed by them. Not that their film isn't awesome. It is!
High Sierra came out a few years earlier...and it follows some young guys along their trip. It is tied together by the amazing Shelton Johnson and, I think, a pretty sweet soundtrack.
You can check it out the trailer here.

If you want to go back a little before HD times, check out the first film by these guys (my friends) called Trek I don't think it is streaming anywhere though.
It is a good movie.
