Roger Corman, notorious schlock-schlepper, wanted to go back to his teen movie roots at the tail end of the 1970s. First he was gonna make Disco High, but the genre was already dead. Then he tried to lock down Cheap Trick and Todd Rundgren, but—amazingly—they decided against getting underpaid by Roger Corman for two weeks of making disposable cash-in cinematic garbage. You know who didn't say no? The Ramones! And with the help of Clint Howard, P.J. Soles and one motherfucker of an explosion (which was probably half of the film's $200,000 budget), Rock 'n' Roll High School was born. Revel in its idiocy.
