Punk rock kings The Ramones star as themselves in this loud and ridiculous Rock 'N' Roll fantasy where students band together to take over the school from a square, oppressive principal.

In addition to The Ramones' manic three-chord soundbursts, the soundtrack includes other rock legends The Velvet Underground, Paul McCartney, Alice Cooper, Devo, Brian Eno, Eddie and the Hot Rods, Fleetwood Mac, and The Paley Brothers, making this the too-cool-for-school hit of the 70s.
