The Movie: Over the Edge (1979)
What Is It?: A cult movie for the pimply teen in all of us: a bunch of kids living in a depressing planned community stage a revolution by locking the PTA in their high school and laying siege to the joint. Such a story demands a great Rock & Roll soundtrack and those demands are met by Cheap Trick, The Cars, Van Halen, The Ramones, and Hendrix. Alice Cooper would have been overkill.
Why Today?: Today is No Homework Day.
