At the dawn of the 1980s, Vince Lombardi High is run by the iron fisted, rock n roll hating fascist principal Miss Togar (Mary Woronov). Fortunately, lifelong rock n' roller Riff Randell (P.J. Soles) and her friends band together to show Miss Togar the error of her ways with some help from the Ramones -- and some high explosives.
This classic teenage wish-fulfillment flick intro'd me to the music of the Ramones in the early 80s and it's been one of my favorite films ever since. I honestly have lost count of how many times I've seen it, but I never get tired of it. I am at the point where I can quote the dialogue along with the characters chapter and verse.
As far as I'm concerned this movie belongs on every rocker's shelf right next to "Almost Famous," "This Is Spinal Tap," "Detroit Rock City," "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park" and the "Decline of Western Civilization" series.
