Rock’n’Roll High School

Rock’n’Roll High School

Riff Randell (PJ Soles) is obsessed with The Ramones and wants to write songs for them. Meanwhile the uptight Principal Togar (Mary Woronov) is on a one-woman crusade to stamp out the evils of punk. Into the midst of this come The Ramones themselves, to save the kids and overthrow the principal’s junta. With the band throwing themselves into their songs, and a crazed audience jumping in after them, this gleeful comic book of a film captures the devil-may-care energy ofAmerica’s punk pioneers.
