From director Allan Arkush and executive producer Roger Corman, this joyous teen classic is among the most beloved of Corman's New World Pictures output, and features legendary band the Ramones at their punk-rocking peak.
1979: Riff Randell (P.J. Soles, Halloween) is the rockingest rebel at Vince Lombardi High. Evelyn Togar (Mary Woronov, Night of the Comet) is the strict new principal with plans to rule the school as her own personal dictatorship. Meanwhile the Ramones are the hottest band around. When these forces of nature collide, Lombardi High will never be the same! Striking back against Togar's record burnings and iron-fisted discipline, Riff leads a revolt that rocks the roof right off the school’s hallowed halls!
